Festival season is upon us and as we at LitApp don’t want you to miss out on all the fun, we decided to give you the list of some of the craziest US music festivals 2018 is about to provide.
Time: April 13 – 15 and 20 – 22
Coachella is definitely one of the best US music festivals and is a must regardless of your music taste. What better way to start your festival season than in the middle of the desert? Not only does Coachella provide a top-notch lineup every single year, it also offers an all-around festival experience that few other events across the globe can match.
We already have a glimpse of this year’s lineup: The Weeknd, Beyoncé, and Eminem; while 2017 lineup highlights include: Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, Lorde, Radiohead, Travis Scott, Bon Iver…
Time: August 2 – 5
Lolla is a festival that doesn’t require much introduction. Its enormous reputation speaks for itself as this festival is said to be as one of the most organized and best US music festivals across the USA. Plus, Chicago is stunning in the summer!
Biggest names from 2017 lineup include: Wiz Khalifa, Muse, The Killers, Chance the Rapper, Lorde, Arcade Fire, The XX, DJ Snake, Blink-182…
Time: May 18 – 20
Its very name speaks for itself. Hangout Music Festival is definitely among the best US music festivals to hang out with your crew and enjoy gorgeous beaches along the Alabama coastline, while the lineups are always kickass.
Some of the biggest names from 2017 read: Twenty One Pilots, Mumford, and Sons, Weezer, Frank Ocean, Chance the Rapper, Major Lazer, MGMT…
Time: March 23 – 25
Perhaps the most popular EDM festival in North America, Ultra Music Festival takes place in Miami during March, and we all know how awesome and eventful this amazing city is in spring! If you don’t want the partying to end, and you are a huge fan of electronic dance music, this is THE festival for you.
Most prominent 2017 acts include: Steve Aoki, Major Lazer, Martin Garrix, Zhu, KSHMR, Afrojack, A$AP Ferg…
Time: October 5 – 7 and 12 – 14
ACL festival is one of the best US music festivals to finish off your season. It is extremely popular and it has sold out each year for the last 10 years! Since it is not really a “summer festival,” the crowd is much more relaxed, which can be a huge plus for folks who don’t really like chaotic events. But don’t get us wrong, Austin City Limits is still a blast!
Last year’s lineup reads: Gorillaz, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jay Z, Chance the Rapper, The Killers, The XX, Solange…
Time: May 4 – 6
This is definitely a festival that takes the cake when it comes to the variety of genres it covers, and it manages to do it in only one weekend.
All these performers rocked last year: Snoop Dogg, Kings of Leon, Wiz Khalifa, Soundgarden, Sturgill Simpson, Death Cab for Cutie, MGMT, Jill Scott…
Time: June 1 – 3
This NY festival is synonymous with the phrase “the show must go on!” and is another event where genres are not really a thing, but random A-list stars pop-ups on stage during performances are. The lineups have been just ridiculous so far: Childish Gambino, Lana Del Rey, deadmau5, Black Keys, Drake, Madonna, Disclosure, André 3000
Time: June 7 – 10
Bonnaroo is one of the most hardcore festivals in the USA and is known as the best camping experience ever, while the event managers manage to deliver a top-notch lineup every year as well.
The most prominent names of 2017 included: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lorde, The Weeknd, D.R.A.M, Chance the Rapper, Major Lazer and Travis Scott, Noname, The xx, Tove Lo, Michael Kiwanuka…
Make sure you also check out at least one of its famous late-night super jams!
Time: June 27 – 29
If you are looking for an east-coast alternative to Coachella, then NY’s Panorama is THE music festival for you. Aside from great lineups each year, this event also includes art installations and amazing local food selections for those with ticklish taste buds.
Major 2017 lineup highlights include: Alt-J, Frank Ocean, Tyler the Creator, Nine Inch Nails, Solange, Tame Impala, MGMT, A Tribe Called Quest, Future Islands, Kiiara, Nick Murphy, Vince Staples, Cashmere Cat, Snakehips…
