Festival Guide 2015: A Fool For Festivals

A Fool for Festivals - 2015 Can’t Miss List


Mysteryland USA

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
There’ll be festival-going
And big booties showing
Pack up your tent and all of your gear
Drinks will be flowing
And hearts will be glowing
When loved ones are near
It’s the most wonderful time of the year

Ah, festival season. Music festivals provide a temporary escape from torturous 9-to-5s to Philosophy 101. But, for me, they are simply the setting of my fondest memories and I am more than ready to add to the collection this year.

As a tribute to my favorite time of year, I compiled a festival guide of can’t-miss festivals across the nation. If you’ve got the funds and the friends, try to pencil these gems into your schedule.

Euphoria Music & Camping Festival

April 10-12
Austin, TX

If you're in Texas or in any of its surrounding states, I suggest you take a trip to Austin and see what your neighbor is up to. With Pretty Lights, Ghostland Observatory and Paper Diamond on the lineup, this dreamy little production will be one to remember.

A Fool for Festivals - 2015 Can’t Miss List

May 21-25
Bradley, CA

If you're looking to do something that doesn't involve remembering those who lost their lives serving our country Memorial Day Weekend, this is the thing to do. Aside from its spectacular lineup, this festival means to activate your body and expand your mind with artists, healers, speakers and teachers in the Lucent Temple of Consciousness. Take five minutes out of your life and watch the virtual tour to get a glimpse of last year's LIB.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, Wakarusa is the one redeeming experience the state of Arkansas has to offer. Take advantage of it and feel the funk with The Floozies, STS9 and Big Gigantic.

Who wouldn't want to visit a place called Electric Forest? With a lineup as magical as its name, this festival is one I'll find my way to eventually. Don't miss your chance to see Kaskade, Flume, Phantogram and Skrillex in Mother Nature's sweet embrace.
