It seems as though music festivals are an endless journey. When one music festival comes to an end, another one commences. Outside Lands came to an end this past Sunday as Burning Man kicked off the same day. What’s up next? Check out these festivals coming up in the next couple of months. Whether you’re a hippy, rocker, hipster or just a fun-lovin’ music geek, there’s a lil something for everyone.
