So Coachella is over. We’d be mourning it if we weren’t still recovering from it and reliving it through YouTube videos and SoundCloud clips. The problem is, we’ve spent all of this time looking forward to Coachella, and now it’s finally happened. So onto the next one yes? We’ve rounded up the other must go-tos and our favorite acts at each. You’re welcome.
It’s sort of the end-all to be-all of music festivals, outside of Coachella of course. You do have to head out to Tennessee to partake, but Nashville has a pretty amazing music scene, so you can pit stop there. The 2014 lineup includes some BDF favorites like Kanye West and Washed Out.
Sasquatch Music Festival
If you don’t feel like venturing out to the middle of nowhere, just head straight north. Sasquatch Festival happens at the Columbia River Gorge up in the Pacific Northwest. And bonus: it’s beautiful and temperate up there, so none of the overheating worries of Coachella. With BDF favorites like Queens of the Stone Age and Banks, plus a slew of comedians in addition to the music acts.
Let’s move into the city for a second. Over on the other coast in New York City, the Governors Ball is where it’s at. And they have single day tickets for sale (take note, Coachella). Located right in the city, you can enjoy some Jack White, The 1975, Washed Out, and Banks at this one. Dance like no one’s watching.
Oh and if you want to be lazy and just hang with us in LA, you’ve got the Made in America Festival headed our way, FYF Fest, Rock the Bells, and Stagecoach (for you country lovers). Or Outside Lands just a little north. Basically you have endless possibilities, so stop crying Coachella tears and start planning your next festival-ready outfits. See you there.
