2018 Music Festival Lineups

If we're going to be forced to sit through another winter, we might as well have something to look forward to in the spring and summer ... here's a rundown of some of our favorite music festivals for 2018 :


Firefly - The Woodlands, Delaware 

June 14-17

Our favorite festival of the summer bounces back from (IMO) a weak 2017 lineup ... the headliners are great and the middle of the lineup has a lot of bands we are digging right now! 


Forecastle - Louisville, Kentucky 

July 13-15

Three solid headliners here - it doesn't hurt that Arcade Fire are one of them and their live show is amazing! 


Sloss - Birmingham, Alabama 

July 14-15

Same weekend as Forecastle ... almost the same lineup ... 



Coachella - Empire Polo Club - Indio, California 

April 13-15 and April 20-23 

The granddaddy of all festivals has 3 headliners that aren't bands in 2018!  


Governor's Ball - Randalls Island Park - New York City 

June 1-3 

Looking for a festival in the middle of the city that never sleeps - check out Governor's Ball


Homecoming - Smale Park - Cincinnati, Ohio

April 28-29

Two unique sets by The National and a festival that takes place at the park and other venues all over the city - I love it! 



Hangout Fest  - Gulf Shores, Alabama

May 18-20

Dude - does anything sound better than checking out your favorite bands from the white sands beaches of the Floribama Shore? I'll wait... 


Summercamp Music Festival - Chillicothe, Illonois 

May 25-27

This festival gets bonus points for being in a town called Chillicothe



Boston Calling - Harvard Athletic Center 

May 25-27

Another stacked lineup for Memorial Day ... Starting to see some lineup trends 


Shaky Knees Music Festival - Central Park -Atlanta GA

May 4-6

This Festival has awesome artwork ... and the impressive lineup makes the quick trip to Atlanta appealing! 



Bonnaroo - The Farm at Great Stage Park - Manchester TN 

June 7-10

Get your camping gear ready and road trip down to Manchester TN! 


SweetWater 420 Fest - Centennial Parl - Atlanta, GA 

April 20-22

Two sets from a bunch of the acts- including the headliners ... plus the return of Ghostland Observatory! 


Peach Music Festival - Montage Mountain -  Scranton, PA 

July 13-15

I dont see Scrantonicity on this Scranton PA lineup - but the lineup is pretty solid none the less! 



Mountain Jam - Hunter Mountain, Kentucky 

July 13-15

Woah - this is amazing ...Jack Johnson - are you touring or what? 

Too bad this is  the same weekend as Firefly :(
