Festival Season Never Dies with These Top Fall Live Events
Music festivals are synonymous with summertime, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still get your fix well into the fall. To keep music festival season going well after summer ends, check out some of our favorites still to come in 2015.
If you like Lollapalooza:
Consider Austin City Limits. This October double-weekend event shares the diverse lineup of Lollapalooza with big names like Florence and the Machine, The Weeknd, Bassnectar, Twenty One Pilots and Moon Taxi, in addition to the likes of Deadmau5 and Nero.
If the crowd and overall atmosphere is really what draws you to Lolla, you will likely enjoy North Coast Music Festival. This three-day festival occurs over Labor Day Weekend in Chicago’s Union Park. With its outdoor venue, multiple stages and carefree vibe, this festival gives you the Lolla environment with an electronic-focused lineup.
Also keep an eye out for the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, Made in America Music Festival in Philadelphia, and the brand new Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival in New York, all of which will feature various top EDM acts including but not limited to Skrillex, Diplo, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, and Kygo.
Last, but certainly not least – Bumbershoot. This slightly less-known music festival is something special. Over the long Labor Day weekend, Bumbershoot sets up its 74-acre venue for a weekend of not only top name music, but food vendors, art sculptures, comedians and more!
If you like Ultra Music Festival:
You will love Electric Zoo Festival. This music festival will bring the EDM to New York this Labor Day weekend and features many of the same DJs as Ultra like, Galantis, The Martinez Brothers, Zeds Dead, Alesso, Excision, and Markus Schulz.
Love EDM, but want something different? Try TomorrowWorld. Originally started in Belgium as “TomorrowLand,” this magical three-day show and five-day camping experience is America’s largest 21+ music festival. Last year’s TomorrowWorld brought in 160,000 fans from over 75 countries to celebrate electronic dance music on its whimsically designed stages. This enchanted fest takes place in Chattahoochee Hills, Ga., and will return Sept. 25-27.
If you like Coachella:
It is hard to compare to the celebrity-loved music festival that is, Coachella. However, HARD Events will debut its new one-night event, A Night At Fairplex, this September, and it sounds like a much smaller-scale Coachella with the kind of music variety that fans flock to.
Now, if you’re set on experiencing Coachella’s desert atmosphere, check out Burning Man, a week-long event in Black Rock City, Nev., that begins on the last weekend of August. It may not be a traditional music festival, but it’s definitely a week full of art and music you won’t find anywhere else.
