Can't Miss Summer Music Festivals of 2012

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.

Lollapollooza - Chicago, IL; August 3-5

Though the festival itself is over twenty years told, Lollapalooza will turn Grant Park into North America’s biggest music extravaganza for its eighth consecutive year.

Featuring over 130 diverse acts from around the globe, headliners include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Sabbath (in their only North American tour date), The Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine, At The Drive-In, Bassnectar, The Shins, and Passion Pit.

Single-day passes are $95.
