The music festival scene continues to grow in popularity, which is no surprise as it combines the exciting experience of listening to live music with one of summer’s best activities: camping. Join in on the fun by camping out at one of these five summer music festivals and experience a trip unlike any other!
If you’re looking for musical variety, Bonnaroo is for you. It’s one of America’s largest music festivals and offers a wide range of music styles, including jazz, country, indie rock, and pop. Bring a tent or drive your RV to the festival. The camping area can get crowded, but you’ll make plenty of new friends!
2. Summer Set Music Festival
If you prefer a more low-key festival and camping experience, spend some time enjoying Wisconsin’s Summer Set Music Festival. Music ranges from indie to hip-hop. When you’re ready to take a break from the live shows, you can spend some time relaxing and tubing down the Apple River.
Put on a cowboy hat and get ready to rock out to some of your favorite country tunes. Countryfest puts together an impressive lineup featuring some of country’s biggest artists ranging from Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. You can choose to camp on-site or find a campground nearby.
4. High Sierra
Bring your whole family to the High Sierra music festival. Besides a varied selection of music genres that includes jazz and bluegrass, this festival offers fun activities for both kids and adults. There are plenty of places to camp on- or off-site, and you can also camp in a tent or RV.
Many nationally known artists perform at the Firefly music festival each year, and this summer is no exception. Guests can set up camp near their cars, and they also have the option to purchase a “glamping” package, which provides air-conditioned tents and cots with blankets and pillows.
