The Best Music Festivals Coming to Your Town this Summer 2014

Music-Festivals

Music Festivals have become one of the most popular ways for audiences to consume music over the past decade. The big, popular festivals—Lollapalooza, Coachella, Warped Tour, and SXSW aren’t the only shows featuring outstanding artists both new and established. While many spring festivals have already wrapped up in the hotter, southern states, a host of others are right around the corner. Read on for our top picks of the summer festival circuit.

Gorge, Washington’s Sasquatch! Festival is this weekend, May 23-25, and will feature some huge names like MIA and Outkast as well as newer popular artists like Foster the People and Kid Cudi. EDM fans can catch the Electric Daisy Festival this weekend in NYC or Mysteryland in Bethel, NY. Southerners still have a chance to catch some amazing acts at the Bayou Country Superfest May 23-25, as well, in Baton Rouge. If you attended New York’s Governors Ball last year on Randall’s Island, you’re sure to meet with sunnier skies if you attend this year—the 2013 festival weathered a tropical storm. Manchester, TN’s Bonaroo features a lineup this year that rivals even last year’s Paul McCartney, Bjork, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers with classic greats from a younger generation: The Flaming Lips, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Lauryn Hill among many others. Dover, DE’s beautiful woodlands will host Edward Sharpe, Weezer, and Pretty Lights this year’s Firefly Music Festival in June. The start-up festival has a campground available and a lineup of great food, as well.

Essence Fest in NOLA on Fourth of July weekend features none other than Prince—a must-not-miss! The summer wraps up nicely in Chicago with Lollapalooza in August, and Riot Fest, a nearly two week long, indie-punk festival in September. If you can’t make the trek to Chicago for one last summer show, aim farther south and spend a weekend in the Dreamville campground at TomorrowWorld in Chattahoochee, GA, September 26-28. The festival debuted last year and incorporates international acts.

What to Look for When Ordering Tickets for Your Next Festival or Show

TicketsWhen planning your next concert or show, you can benefit from knowing what to look for in admission tickets and choosing the right tickets for your event. We offer bulk, customizable tickets, passes, and wristbands at affordable prices – giving you a lot of different options when it comes to planning your event. So, you may be wondering, what’s so special about our tickets?

First our prices beat the competition: we do not charge service fees, back ad charges, or additional security charges. There are no hidden costs, the cost simply covers the price of tickets plus tax and shipping, and customers receive free shipping after $50. Tickets are sequentially numbered (you choose your starting number) and stacked in order so you can easily track the number sold. Sound good so far? There’s more! All of our tickets include gold foil security shields, and you can choose from several full-color designs to express the feel and personality of the music that will be highlighted at the festival. When ordering tickets and choosing a design, you can select from six colors for multiple day shows which makes ordering for multiple day festivals or concerts a cinch. Ticket back features include the option to include Spanish and English disclaimers (or to waive a disclaimer) and best of all musicians can upload their own artwork to the back of the ticket! This makes it truly possible to offer fans a personalized keepsake with their admission purchase. Even if you choose to forgo adding artwork to the back of the ticket, our prices include the opportunity to place an ad on the back. Just remember when you submit your order you will receive a proof of the front and back of your ticket to approve, you must do so within 24 hours to ensure that your ticket is printed perfectly.

Our tickets are priced very competitively to help you stay within your budget, retain fans, and attract future audiences. We are true music-lovers and are here to help you make your dreams come true!
