Festivals, Festivals, Festivals


They keep coming. This week the Northeast is pretty booked up with the Governors Ball, Hot 97 Summer Jam, and Mountain Jam 2015 covering a pretty full range of ways to spend a weekend or a day in the sun, dripping with the sweat of all strangers within shoulder-brushing distance of your swaying bod. Texas also has its Free Press Summer Fest, and the Bunbury Music Festival is bringing Snoop Dogg and The Black Keys to Ohio. Bummed you missed the Roots Picnic last weekend? We are, too. Planning ahead? Check out the lineup for two upcoming Brooklyn-based festivals: the Northside Festival, running from June 8–14, and the Gigawatts Festival, July 24–26. We’d remind you that Bonnaroo is coming up, too, but we know folks looking to spend next weekend in Manchester, TN, probably have their plans on lock by now.
