Summer is almost here and with that comes an action-packed calendar of festivals, live music shows and outdoor events taking place across the US. With so many exciting things to choose from, it can be difficult to decide where to spend your hard earned cash and more importantly those precious vacation days.
We have rounded up some of the best summer festivals that may be smaller in size, compared to the likes of Coachella and Lollapalooza - but what they lack in size they make up for in their unique line ups and intimate settings.
Whether it’s dancing under the pink desert sky at the Joshua Tree Music Festival, or experiencing San Francisco’s most talked-about food, wine, and beer festival at Outside Lands, we have got you covered. From Colorado’s EDM paradise at Sonic Bloom to Napa Valley’s ultra cool Bottlerock, click here to discover some of the USA's best small and independent festivals coming to you this summer.
If you do attend one of our featured events, we would love for you to report back and rate them here on our site.
