Though summer technically doesn’t begin until June 20, festival season is officially upon us. Why plan for one day of the holiday weekend when you can cover all three with one ticket? From coast to coast, some of the hottest festivals of the year take place during MDW. Festivals are also some of the best values when it comes to live music: the price of a ticket is always less than the combined cost of seeing the artists individually.
Napa Valley, CA
