Music Festivals Tickets

The History of Music Festivals

While music festivals have become a way of life for many today, the history of these popular events dates back further than you may think. In fact, ancient Greek civilizations held musical gatherings as far back as the 6th century B.C. One of the first music festivals introduced in Western culture was Rhode Island’s Newport Jazz Festival, founded in 1954. From there, festivals soon began to pop up around the country. California’s Monterey Pop Festival and Milwaukee’s Summerfest were introduced in the 1960s before New York’s Woodstock came around in 1969. Modern day music festivals feature all genres of music, from hip-hop and pop to country, folk, and more!

The Live Music Festival Experience

Ready to brave the crowds and dance your days and nights away? Then you’re definitely ready for a live music festival experience! Music festivals often include several stages and many artists performing simultaneously. Additionally, music festivals often advertise by promoting a headliner, or main act, who generally plays at the end of the festival. Some festivals are just one-day events, while others are multi day experiences. Many festivals draw in younger crowds as they can last all day and are more about the social experience itself than just the on-stage acts.

Notable Performers

Many famous musicians have graced festival stages throughout the world. From Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake headlining the Wireless Festival in London to Ariana Grande and Childish Gambino making waves at Coachella, festivals are a great way to see all of your favorites in one place! Music festivals are also great for checking out new, up-and-coming artists who are part of the line-up.

Noteworthy Music Festivals

From California’s Coachella to Lollapalooza in Chicago, there are plenty of noteworthy music festivals worth attending today. Governor’s Ball in New York is another popular annual festival, as well as Bonnaroo in Tennessee.

There are plenty of smaller festivals across all genres of music that happen throughout the year as well.
