Pitchfork Music Festival
July 15-17, Union Park, Chicago
When it comes to top-notch music festivals, Pitchfork has delivered the goods since 2006.
This year’s headliners include The National, Spiritualized, Mitski, The Roots and Earl Sweatshirt—all of whom will help draw roughly 60,000 concert goers from every corner of the globe.
It’s a warm, welcoming experience that supports more than a handful of local Chicago businesses—and offers way more than an earful of amazing music.
There’s the CHIRP record fair that specializes in indie labels, local record stores and independent dealers. There’s the Flatstock poster fair, where the world’s best show-poster artists hang out and share their work. There’s even the Music House Kids Zone, where kids can jam, paint and chill out in the shade.
If you’re looking for the high point of your summer, you’ll find it here.
July 22-24, Hard Rock Stadium, Miami
Ye. Future. Kendrick Lamar.
You’ll find all three headlining Miami’s flagship hip-hop festival this year.
Launched as a single-day event in 2015, Rolling Loud quickly grew into a full-blown weekend and has gained recognition across the entire country (this year’s festival even stops in Portugal).
Consider joining the VIP Loud Club to enjoy a perfect view of the main stage from an elevated deck. Consider staying at a nearby hotel for optimal convenience. And consider renting a locker to keep you gear safe and sound.
It’s a one-of-a-kind chance to hear some of hip-hop’s best do their thing.
Louder Than Life Festival
Kentucky Expo Center, Louisville
Looking for something with a little more edge?
Try Nine Ich Nails, Slipknot, Kiss, the Chili Peppers and four nights of heavy riffs and ear-shattering decibels at the Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville.
Be assured there’ll be plenty of opportunities to drink, jam and kick back between sets. And if you’re into parking your 15-passenger van for the duration, consider getting a camping pass in advance. You’ll get access to campground showers, camping supplies and 24-hour security, medical and customer services.
It’s not your typical music festival fare. But if you’re not a typical music fan, it just might be right up your alley.
Whatever your tastes. Wherever you’re bound. Whoever you bring. ‘Tis the season of the music festival—and you’re only a 15-passenger rental van away from making the most of it
