Missed Coachella? Here Are Five Festivals With Way Better Line-Ups This Summer

Coachella is in a weird spot these days. The California-based music festival has been overrun by influencers who are more interested in showing off their “unique outfits” rather than enjoying the music and vibe. But part of that could be because the lineup at Coachella isn’t what it used to be. Sure, there’s a small handful of great sets, but overall, most acts aren’t worth the $600+ price of admission.

If you’re looking for an actually good festival to attend this year, you’re better off checking out one of these:


Since its inception in 2002, Bonnaroo has been synonymous with adventure, community and discovery. Located amidst the rolling hills of Manchester, Tennessee, the festival offers a four-day immersive experience that transcends traditional notions of live music events. Featuring artists like Maggie Rogers, Post Malone, Cage the Elephant, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Khruangbin and more, this festival is well worth the price of admission.
