The end of summer hangover begins this weekend so what better way to ease into the cooler months with a mellow selection of music festivals.
Two showcase festivals on opposite ends of the countries will feature a massive display of local, regional, and nation indie acts. West coasters will want to check out MFNW in Portland while Hopscotch takes over various locales in downtown Raleigh.
It’s the Bestival
The biggest festival of the weekend is is also sold out. If you don’t have a ticket you’ll miss out on Stevie Wonder, New Order, The xx, Friendly Fires, and Justice just to name a few. Hopefully the Isle of Wight will be able to avoid the massive rainfalls that have plagued the UK all season.
We’re Gonna Riot
Forget mellow, Riot Fest continues its mini tour with stops in Brooklyn and Toronto this weekend.
