Summer is ending, but that doesn't mean music festivals are plagued for death as well. Surely not the case, because music lives on FOR-EV-ERRR and this list gives valid proof.
Fuse.tv just listed the "10 Best Fall Festivals" to get excited about and here are four that tickled our fancy:
1. Boston Calling
When: September 5-7
Where: Boston (duh!)
Lineup highlights: The National, Lorde, Nas x The Roots, Neutral Milk Hotel, Childish Gambino, Girl Talk, Spoon, Bleachers, Sky Ferreira and more.
Boston Calling happens twice a year (during Memorial Day and Labor Day). In September this event is a 3 day festival with musical acts that will have you on your feet for 72 hours.
2. Riot Fest
When: September 6-7, 12-14 and 19-21
Where: Toronto, Chicago and Denver
Lineup highlights: Weezer, The Flaming Lips, Slayer, The Cure, Social Distortion, The National, Rise Against, The Offspring, Taking Back Sunday, Wu-Tang Clan, Descendents, a ton more.
Riot fest is jam packed with punk, rock and indie bands. A festival that surely tests your vans or converse durability. If your into mosh pits and crowd surfing, this festival is definitely for you! Did we mention their theme is carnival inspired so rides and carnival paraphernalia will be on the festival grounds (more reason to attend?).
When: September 26-28
Where: Atlanta, GA
Lineup highlights: Avicii, David Guetta, Skrillex, Steve Aoki, Tiesto, Diplo, Kaskade, and a list that keeps going with the beat.
TomorrowWorld arrives in North America for the second time in Atlanta. This massive festival is an EDM lovers dreamland. From Belgium to Atlanta this music festival has been heard from all over the world. With a lineup of DJs to satisfy your electric music heart for days. If beats and sounds aren't your thing, this is NOT a festival for you.
4. Austin City Limits Music Festival
When: October 3-5 and 10-12
Where: Austin, TX (duh part 2!)
Lineup highlights: Eminem, Outkast, Skrillex, Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Major Lazer, and more.
ACL Music Festival is a 2-week event that is riding the coat tails of SXSW but is def. riding it with pride! This festival has been growing each year and the line up shows. The city's music history is a perfect backdrop for the musical talent it houses.
