Year after year, organizers of summer music festivals have been raising the stakes, one-upping each other with lineups of mega-star headliners, cool indie bands and soon-to-be-huge opening acts. This year is definitely no exception.
Starting with the unofficial season opener in Tennessee—the 125-act blockbuster known as Bonnaroo—you'll have the opportunity to gorge yourself of music of every conceivable genre, from heavy metal to folk to classical (and share sticky-sweet summer afternoon with the likes of Jack White, Neil Young and Alice Cooper).
Don't throw away your hard earned cash on a ticket to a concern with just one act. Instead throw your money—and yourself into the musical orgy by rocking out at one of these unmissable events.
