What’s happening in the third weekend of July? How about everything? The festival year of 2012 is pushing forward with another stacked weekend of raves, campouts, hoedowns, concerts, shows, and even a picnic in Russia. Take a gander below at the list and we’ll see you on the gypsy road.
TheÂ Capitol Hill Block PartyÂ tried to scare us earlier this year by starting a rumor that this may be the final one. We hope not because this Seattle bash is one of our favorites in the Northwest.
It’s Finally Summer in Norway
The eyes on the official page for Slottsfjell have been tripping me out for the last ten minutes. Plus, they’ve got New Order, Wolfmother, and Friendly Fires in the lineup.
Rave in the Desert
Better bring along plenty of water for the Monegros Desert Festival. 22 hours of electronic music in the middle of Spain — you’re gonna want a drink.
The Jammiest Weekend of the Year
With All GoodÂ in Ohio, Gathering of the VibesÂ in New England, and String Cheese Incident FestivalÂ in Oregon, I predict at least one song will go past the ten minute mark.
Not the Jam
You would guess that the Moondance JamÂ would be like, you know, jam bands, but you sir would be wrong. Skid Row, Kid Rock, Hinder, Grand Funk Railroad, and a Motley Crue tribute band? More like Moondance Rock!
