The Music Festival Junkies 50: April 2013 Recap

Spring is in the air and we couldn’t be more excited for this summer! LikeĀ Ashton Kutcher at Coachella (#79), we’re going to knock out the top fifty most popular festivals for the month of April.

Coast And Coast
Except for the reigning champ, Rockfest (#1) and the Moonrise Fest (#12) the top fifteen spots are dominated by New York City and California. C’mon Midwest — we know you rock just as hard!

USA Roadtrip
Tomorrowland (#18) out of Belgium is so freakin’ popular that it has spawned a new Atlanta festival, TomorrowWorld (#26). The news carried so much weight that it catapulted both festivals onto the MFJ 50 this month.

Sophmore Year
Some festivals that debuted last year are carrying heat into 2013. The Electric Daisy Carnival (#5) and the Great GoogaMooga (#19) will return to the NYC area. Jay Z expands his resume once again with Made in America (#31).

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
