Whether your beat is electronic or alternative, there’s a festival catering to you. Here’s the scoop on the summer’s top ten music fests. Our advice? Pray for sunshine.

Newport Folk Festival - Newport, RI; July 28-29

At the end of July, Fort Adams State Park transforms into a wonderland of local and international folk talent. Though the schedule is still unfolding, Folk Festival will welcome Wilco for a special pre-fest show on July 27th, and then mega-stars My Morning Jacket will share the mic with icons like Jackson Browne and the Guthries, younger artists like Conor Oberst, and Iron & Wine, and soulful crooners like Patty Griffin through the rest of the weekend.

Two-day passes are $135.00. Single day tickets are $74.00.
