Welcome to the Music Festival Junkies 50 where we rattle off the previous month’s most popular fests. As always, these numbers are based strictly on our website traffic. Now let’s take a look at the month that was July.

It’s Never Too Early For Next Year
We’re already seeing heavyweights like Coachella (#4) and Ultra (#20) make their first 2014 entries into the MFJ 50.  And it’s only August. Expect to see more of next year’s biggest festivals inch their way into the list during the next edition.

Start Booking Those Cruises
While we’re on the subject of 2014, the first fests of the year are traditionally music festival cruises to warm weather locations. These water parties, like Holy Ship (#21), tend to sell out quickly so if your dream is to dance in the sand, get on it!

Soccer Stadiums Find A New Crowd
The newly announced Breakaway Fest saw both of their inaugural events debut on the MFJ 50. The shows, which take place at soccer stadiums will kick off in both Columbus(#27) and Dallas(#33).

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.
