5 Under-the-Radar Summer Music Festivals

Are massive, mainstream music fests not really your thing? Then check out these lower-key alternatives from across the country, which offer solid lineups on a much smaller scale.

June 21-23 in North Adams, Massachusetts

Indie rockers Wilco headline and curate an intimate festival for 7,500 folks in the picturesque Berkshires. There is little scheduling overlap so plan to experience it all—music, art, comedy, an environmental film festival and excursions like a nature hike and stargazing led by an astronomer. Round-trip buses will be available from New York City and Boston.

Lineup Highlights: Neko Case, The Relatives, Wilco, Yo La Tengo and comedy with John Hodgman and Reggie Watts.

Tickets available at SolidSoundFestival.com.
