Here’s Your New Summer Music Festival Calendar

Here’s Your New Summer Music Festival Calendar

Fall is the new summer, as far as music festivals are concerned. As life begins awkwardly flirting with some semblance of what used to be normal, live music is starting up again — only summer festival season has shifted over into autumn.

A few notable exceptions aside, pretty much every music festival is taking place in September and October. And after the barren wasteland of 2020, when the only festival news was an endless litany of postponements and cancellations, this fall is starting to look like a veritable bacchanalia of live music.

Struggling to keep track of it all? Luckily, we have oh-so-thoughtfully compiled a “summer” festival calendar just for you. So check it out below and get excited to don your Mr. Autumn Man cardigan, listen to some music, and try to remember how to act around a crowd of other actual human beings.
