While music festivals seem to pop up left, right and center, you can easily narrow down the list by focusing on the destination first. Travel somewhere new with the music festival as your guide.


Bottle Rock in Napa Valley: May 24–26

Hosted in the already vacation-worthy destination of Napa Valley, Bottle Rock festival offers a great excuse to get over to the West Coast and enjoy an incredible music lineup. The three-day weekend offers a little something for everyone, including Neil Young, Gary Clark Jr., Pharrell Williams, Mumford & Sons, Santana and Jenny Lewis — just to name a few of the many, many more.


Glastonbury in Somerset, England: June 26–30

Already sold out, Glastonbury’s lineup is a top contender for your summer music festival list. Headliners include The Killers, The Cure, Janet Jackson, George Ezra and Liam Gallagher, but music acts aside, Glastonbury is a legendary party. Resale tickets will be available, and this festival is well worth the trip.


Pitchfork Music Festival at Union Park, Chicago: July 19–21

With performances by HAIM, Early Sweatshirt, The Isley Brothers, Kurt Vile and Belle & Sebastian, Pitchfork is the music lover’s festival. With a variety of classic styles, alternative, rap, pop and some a little outside the box, Chicago is ready for summer.


Lollapalooza in Paris: July 20-21

In the same vein as the amazing and equally travel-worthy Lollapalooza in Chicago and Argentina, Paris puts on a show. See some acts you know, some you don’t and enjoy a summer weekend in the City of Love.


Outside Lands in San Francisco: Aug. 9-11

Hosted at Golden Gate Park, Outside Lands is a California-based festival worth the travel. Headliners include Paul Simon, Childish Gambinio, Twenty One Pilots and The Lumineers.
