MF’s Top 10 Summer Music Festivals of 2013

Missed out on Coachella? Don’t worry—there are plenty of other opportunities to soak up the sun and listen to live music this summer. So rally your friends and start planning your escape.

When and Where: June 13-16; Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee

Lineup Highlights: Bjork, Mumford & Sons, Paul McCartney, Pretty Lights, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Wu-Tang Clan

The Scoop: This marks the 12th year for one of America’s most massive festivals, and 2013’s diverse lineup continues to show the Bonnaroo bookers’ commitment to expanding beyond the fest’s jam-band roots. As always, expect a strong community vibe, as mostly everyone camps on-site. Plus, organizers have put extra energy into growing a quality food scene this year, including an expanded Food Truck Oasis.

Insider Tip: You will want to bring everything you will need with you. There is a Walmart in Manchester for last-minute supplies, but go early—it can get picked over quickly.

Escape From Your Escape: On a 700-acre farm in Tennessee, escapes happen within festival grounds. For a break, hit Bonnaroo Cinema, an air-conditioned, 24-hour theater screening sporting events and movies.

Unofficial Hashtag Prediction: #wokeupinthewrongtent

Tickets: Available at Bonnaroo.com ($269.50 for a four-day pass)
