Spring is in the air and music festival season is here. There are some awesome festivals coming up, so we rounded up our favorites for you. Grab your favorite cut-offs, a wide brim hat and a giant water bottle and start planning a road trip.
When: April 7-10
Where: Austin, TX
Who: Bassnectar, Waka Flocka Flame, Tycho, Grizz, Juicy J, Above and Beyond
Why: Right in the middle of Carson Creek Ranch, this is the perfect combination of a music festival experience while being right near the heart of downtown Austin. Euphoria offers camping packages too. Zen out in the mornings with morning meditation and yoga then spend the rest of the day jamming out.
New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival
When: April 22-May 1
Where: New Orleans, LA
Who: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dogg, Pearl Jam, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Ave, J. Cole
Why: There's nothing quite like Jazz Fest. Spend the day at the festival listening to local New Orleans favorites as well as the major headliners. Don't forget to try the Crawfish Monica- it's worth the long line. Then at night, hit up the famous New Orleans bar scene but be ready to do it all again the next day!
Beale Street Music Festival
When: April 29-May 1
