Summertime means it’s festival season. So buy some tickets, get outside with your friends, and jam out to your favorite artists. Sure, Coachella and Bonnaroo might be over, but there are still plenty more music festivals left to attend this summer all across the US. Here are just a few of the music festivals remaining for June, July, August, and September 2019!
Once you’ve decided to make the trip, you can find cheap music festival tickets right here at Razorgator. Just search the site!
Electric Forest – June 27-30 at the Double JJ Resort, Rothbury, MI
It’s this weekend – get your tickets now! With acts like ODESZA, Bassnectar, Kygo, Zeds Dead, Gorgon City, Alison Wonderland, Honey Dijon, and Gramatik, this is a festival for the true electronic music fan. Expect more forests than fields, colorful lights, and bands and DJs alike pumping bass all day and night. It’s like a rave set in the middle of nature. This one is a camping and music festival, so get ready to get dirty and groove. The different stages are spread out amongst hills, grass, and forests with art displays and lit-up trees creating a magical vibe.
Pitchfork Music Festival – July 19-22 at Union Park, Chicago
HAIM, Robyn, Belle & Sebastian, the Isley Brothers, Mavis Staples, and Earl Sweatshirt are headlining this Chicago festival. With over 40 acts over the course of three days, they’ve got indie, alternative, and electronic music (and more!) at Pitchfork. This is very much a city festival, set in the middle of the Windy City with over 60,000 attendees of all ages. Pitchfork is in its 14th year and you can choose to go for all three days or just one. The festival prides itself on being welcoming, comfortable, and affordable, plus they bring in activities and over 50 of the city’s best vendors to support local businesses. Sounds super chill.
Lollapalooza – August 1-4 at Grant Park, Chicago
Perhaps Chicago’s best-known music festival, and one of the most iconic and famous festivals in the country, Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, Twenty One Pilots, The Strokes, Tame Impala, Janelle Monae, Lil Wayne, Tenacious D, Kacey Musgraves, Hozier, and Death Cab For Cutie will all be turning up for this one. Lollapalooza is bringing in some of the biggest acts for its annual summertime event. Sure, the headlining acts have become more mainstream, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You can still see pure rock and alternative acts everywhere you look. Lollapalooza combines music, dance, comedy, crafts, politics, nonprofits, and tons of local Chicago food vendors, so there’s really something for everybody!
WE Fest – August 1-4 at Soo Pass Ranch, Detroit Lakes, MN
One of the biggest country music festivals in the country, WE Fest brings together the top country artists in the nation while hosting some of the best camping festivities around. This year, the headliners include Chris Stapleton, Keith Urban, and Brooks & Dunn, who will be joined by the likes of Billy Currington, Jake Owen, Big & Rich, LeAnn Rimes, and LANCO. Located at Soo Pass Ranch in northern Minnesota, the lake-filled scenery is stunning and the parties are even better. Since the venue is really in the middle of nowhere, the camping part of the festival is a big part of the fun!
Outside Lands – August 9-11 at Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA
Paul Simon, Childish Gambino, Twenty One Pilots, The Lumineers, Blink 182, Flume, Kygo, Kacey Musgraves, Leon Bridges, and Lil Wayne are all performing at Outside Lands. That’s a diverse lineup to say the least – such is San Francisco! Taking place in the massive Golden Gate Park, Outside Lands is a big party in the grass, complete with artsy decorations, fabulous food, and wine. There’s comedy, speaker sessions, nonprofits, cooking demonstrations, and even a weed-smoking area (because, you know, it’s legal in Cali). Fans will hear every genre of music here, but there’s no camping, so you will need to find a place to stay in or near the city!

Riot Fest – September 13-16 at Douglas Park, Chicago
If you’re into punk rock (or just rock rock), Riot Fest should be a bucket-list festival for you. With headliners like Blink 182, Bikini Kill, The Raconteurs, The Flaming Lips, and Slayer, as well as The B-52s, Rise Against, Jawbreaker, Ween, Taking Back Sunday, and Dashboard Confessional, you’ll be amongst fans who dig the music as much as you do. Riot Fest attracts music festivalgoers of all ages and all kinds to its venue in Douglas Park, Chicago. Complete with a circus sideshow, carnival rides, and over 40 food vendors, there’s plenty more to do when you’re not jamming (or moshing) stageside at this festival.
