Festivals abound this weekend around the world. The long holiday weekend in the States will welcome 80/35 in Des Moines (named for the intersection of two highways), High Sierra in California, Summerfest in Milwaukee, the long running Essence Festival in Louisiana, Waterfront Blues in Portland, and the new South Park Festival in Colorado.

In Canada, Montreal Jazz Fest finishes up its long run while the Victoria Ska Fest brings the beats to the far side of  the continent. In between are a grip of festivals — Escapade in Ottawa, Sunfest and Mariposa Folk Festival in Ontario, Astral Harvest in Alberta, Cavendish on Price Edward Island, and the Toronto Urban Roots Festival.

Across the ocean in Europe Croatia starts kicks off a full month of festivals with Hideout and The Garden Festival. Blissfields hits the UK shores along with Wireless and Sonisphere (also playing a day in Italy).

We are the Music Festival Junkies -- a loose coalition of writers, photographers, artists, and musicians roadtripping around the world in search of the "perfect" music festival.
