While the “festival season” which takes place over summer is over there is still plenty of music to be seen as the weather gets colder and the days get shorter. Fall and winter festivals, especially ones around Halloween are some of the best! The next few months have plenty of holiday’s which makes for great themed events that just don’t happen over the main festival season.
HARD Day of the Dead- Los Angeles, CA
The line-up for this annual halloween festival by HARD Events is INSANE! Featuring Deadmau5, Skrillex, Pretty Lights, and a B2B set with Baauer and RL Grime it is going to be a rager!
The Voodoo Experience- New Orleans, LA
While it has some of the same DJ’s as Day of the Dead it is not the East coast equivalent. This festival combines multiple genres with Bassnectar playing along with Pearl Jam. It’s always great to be able to switch things up and expand beyond just electronic music at a festival.
EDC- Orlando, FL
Electric Daisy Carnival returns to the east to start on the road to Vegas 2014. In classic Insomniac fashion there is still no line up, but it is sure to live up to every other event they put on. Just as the weather starts cooling down, head to Florida and rage while your at it!
True Music Festival, Scottsdale, AZ
This one day festival has a great line up if you’re in the area! It’s diverse with headliners Bassnectar, Flaming Lips and Wiz Khalifa covering all the popular genres of today.
Snowglobe- South Lake Tahoe, CA
The place to be to celebrate New Years! There will be plenty of snow for skiing, boarding, and all other winter activities. Then go party outside in the cold all night! I’m most stoked on Kaskade and Snoop Dogg/Lion, but there are plenty of other good acts. If last year was any indication you can’t go wrong attending the after parties either (and they’re inside)
Decadence- Denver, CO
Another great NYE festival with top EDM DJ’s (Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Tiesto, and more) this is a great option and like Snowglobe it is also in the right area to also partake in snow related activities.
Holy Ship!- Miami, FL
I have yet to go on a festival cruise, but this might be the one! It would be great to get out of the cold and party on a cruise ship and private islands with some of the best DJ’s. If you need me I’ll be posted on the beach with Diplo and RL Grime sippin margaritas and chillin with some exotic women.
There’s definitely some festivals coming up that I missed! Feel free to let me know and I’ll add to the list!
Also, if you are attending any of these events and would like to blog about it or share pictures, let me know!
