What do Davy Crockett, Mae West, and Bill Clinton all have in common? Their birthdays are this weekend and we happen to know for a fact if Davy Crockett was still alive, you’d probably catch him fist pumping at one of the many music festivals below.
This Breeze Will Knock You Over
With artists like Bullet, Cattle Decapitation, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Toxic Holacuast, and Six Feet Under, the Summer Breeze Music Festival is more like a summer hurricane of hell. It’s a metal fest, not to be confused with its soothing, gentle name.
This is The End
Each year, the Sunset Strip Music Festival in Los Angeles selects a legend to pay tribute to over three days. This year: The Doors. Freakin’ awesome.
Sponsors NOT Wanted
Beautiful Days in the UK celebrates its tenth year keeping true to a mission of no corporate sponsors, no branding, and no advertising. It’s working. Tickets are sold out for this year and they won the “Best Family Festival” award last year.
Headliners: Coldplace and Black Eyed Peaz
Sometimes it feels like we’ve seen it all and then we come across a festival of only tribute bands and realize that we’re only scratching at the front door. Who know there was a tribute band to Snow Patrol?
