Music festivals are not just a celebration of music; it’s a celebration of friendship and love! All over the world music festivals have grown in popularity, which is apparent from the huge crowds that flock in. Although summertime is the time when most of the music festivals are held, however, the fall season also has a couple of festivals. Here are 5 music festivals that you must attend to enjoy the season of fall in all its glory.
For the People of Tomorrow
After the huge success of Tomorrowland, the organizers are now shifting their attention to the TommorowWorld Music Festival. The 3-day long festival is held in the state of Atlanta, the USA at the end of September. With artists like Avicii, David Guetta, Skrillex, Tiesto, Martin Garrix and many more, this huge music festival is truly magnificent, both in scale and in numbers. So, people of tomorrow, get ready to shakea leg at TommorowWorld.
- Austin City Limits Music Festival
The all American music festival
As it is apparent from the name of the fest, Austin City Limits or ACL is organised in the all-American city of Austin, Texas. It is hosted during the first week of October and has a line-up of artists like Eminem, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Zedd, Major Lazer and many more. It is still a festival that kicked off only recently; however, the crowd and the scale of the celebration paint a completely different story. If you are not a fan of hard-core EDM (Electronic Dance Music) then, this is the festival for you.
- Voodoo Music Experience
Worship the Music
With artists like Foo Fighters, Outkast, Skrillex, Arctic Monkeys, Zedd and many others, the Voodoo Music Experience is one of the last musical festivals of the season. Held in the lush open grounds just outside the town of New Orleans, Louisiana, this festival certainly knows how to get the crowd riled up. And unlike other festivals that concentrate on only a few music genres, the Voodoo Music Experience promises a great festival regardless of your choice of music.
- Electric Daisy Carnival Under the Electric Sky
If you’re an EDM fan like me, then Electronic Daisy Festival (EDC) is the festival for you. Year after year EDC has gained enormous popularity and fandom. The next EDC festival that is to be held in Orlando, Florida in the first week of November is sure to be a banger. So get ready for a night under the electric sky!
- Riot Fest
Let’s shake a leg
This festival is for the lovers of indie, rock and old-school hip-hop music. Riot Fest takes place all throughout the month of September in Toronto, Chicago and Denver. This festival hosts artists like Weezer, Slayer, The Cure, Rise Against, Taking Back Sunday, Wu-Tang Clan and many more. So if you have had your fill of EDM after visiting all the other music festivals listed above, then you should definitely try out the Riot Fest in all its crazy glory.
Winter is coming! And this spells the end of the glorious music festivals. But don’t go hibernating till next summers, waiting for next years’ music festivals. Instead, make the most of this fall season with these 5 music festivals.
