Say it ain’t so. Summer is officially over and I don’t know about you, but it was one of the best summers I’ve had in awhile. It seems as if there was something to do every weekend or a concert that couldn’t be missed. Didn’t it seem as if this year has been full of great acts? Summer may be done with and so are the summer music festivals, but don’t forget that there are a handful of Fall Music Festivals that you just can’t miss!
Austin City Limits Music Festival
(September 30 – October 2 & October 7 – 9)
The Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL) will be celebrating it’s 15th year and it’s all starting THIS WEEKEND! I wanted to go to this myself since the lineup is crazy good. From Radiohead to Kendrick Lamar to The Chainsmokers, it’s as if almost majority of artists that have been on tour all year will be here.
(October 1 – 2)
This is a picnic I would put serious money down for. What I would do to see The Roots, D’Angelo and the Wu-Tang Clan! I guess I have to watch The Roots from the comfort of my own home when they’re on The Tonight Show!
The Meadows Music & Arts Festival
(October 1 – 2)
And if you’re not into having a laid back picnic with The Roots, why not try to catch Kanye West and Chance The Rapper in New York City? Maybe this time you’ll have a better chance to see Yeezy since the day he was supposed to perform during Governors Ball was canceled…
Desert Trip 2016
(October 7 – 9 & October 14 – 16)
Deemed the “Old people’s Coachella” (Hey, not my words. Just what I heard through the grapevine…), famous acts will be taking the famous Indio grounds for two weekends back-to-back with a lineup that is way too good to be true. Kids, if you haven’t heard of Bob Dylan or The Rolling Stones, ask your parents about them now.
Treasure Island Music Festival
(October 15 – 16)
One of the very last music festivals in the Northern California and celebrating it’s tenth year, we can’t forget the Treasure Island Music Festival. Often overlooked, this year’s lineup has a genre-mixed lineup of Ice Cube to How to Dress Well to Mac Demarco. Sound pretty Bay Area-like to me.
Voodoo Music + Arts Experience
(October 28 – 30)
What better way to spend your Halloween weekend with some great music, costumes and a little voodoo? Taking place in (I imagine) one the funnest places on earth, New Orleans’ City Park will be filled with craziness and one heck of a memorable weekend.
Sound on Sound
(November 4 – 6)
Any music festival in its inaugural year is worth checking out. This brand new festival takes place in Central Texas with acts in a variety of genres with even live panel discussions.
