The Top 9 Music Festivals Returning for Summer

It's official. After many delays and cancellations, the summer music festival season is finally back and in full swing.

And to help get you prepared (on top of providing you with some hemp-derived THC), we've compiled this list of festivals we're looking forward to this year.

From one-day mini fests to full-weekend events, there's something for everyone on this list, whether you're an EDM enthusiast, hip-hop aficionado, country fan, indie head, or like a little bit of everything.

So without further hesitation, let's begin! 

Camp Nowhere

Headliners: Porter Robinson, Lane-8, Nora En Pure

Where: Germania Insurance Amphitheater - Austin, TX, Dos Equis Pavillion - Dallas, TX

When: June 10 (Austin), June 11 (Dallas)


Tickets (Austin)

Tickets (Dallas)

From the beats to the bass, EDM fans in Texas (or those looking to drop by) can rejoice with Camp Nowhere. With one show in two cities, this festival is the perfect excuse for a weekend trip to Austin or Dallas.

Governors Ball

Headliners: Kid Cudi, Halsey, J. Cole

Where: Citi Field- New York, NY

When: June 10 - 12



Made for New Yorkers by New Yorkers (but everyone is welcome), Governors Ball returns this year to Citi Field. With pop, hip-hop, indie, folk, electronic and more, there are plenty of good times to be had at this festival in "The City That Never Sleeps." 


Headliners: Gryffin, J. Cole, Tool, Stevie Nicks

Where: Great Stage Park - Manchester, TN

When: June 16 - 19



"Bonaroo" comes from Creole slang meaning "good stuff." And whether it's jazz, jam, bluegrass, reggae, R&B, or rock, there's plenty of good stuff to be found at this festival that has garnered praise from both the New York Times and Rolling Stone alike. 

Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic

Headliners: Willie Nelson & Family, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

Where: Q2 Stadium - Austin, TX 

When: July 4



In 1973, Willie Nelson decided to throw a music festival in Dripping Springs…which attracted over 40,000 people. Though the location has changed over the years, Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic returns this year with an all-country lineup to Austin at Austin FC's Q2 Stadium.


Headliners: Wu-Tang Clan, Justin Bieber, Rod Stewart, Disturbed

Where: Henry Maier Festival Park - Milwaukee, WI

When: June 23 - July 9



First held in 1968, Summerfest attracts roughly 800,000 people every year, even gaining the title of "The World's Largest Music Festival" by Guinness World Records. And the lineup? With over 800 acts and 40 headliners, you're guaranteed to find something worth the trip.

Rolling Loud

Headliners: Ye, Future, Kendrick Lamar

Where: Hard Rock Stadium - Miami, FL

When: July 22 - 25



Founded in 2015, Rolling Loud is an annual touring hip-hop festival with stops ranging from New York to Sydney, Australia. And this summer, you can catch four days of hip-hop in the sunny, vibrant, beautiful city of Miami, Florida.

Pitchfork Music Festival

Headliners: The National, Mitski, The Roots

Where: Union Park - Chicago, IL

When: July 15 - 17



First organized by Pitchfork Media in 2011, this festival focuses mostly on alternative rock, electronic, hip-hop, and dance, with some punk and experimental jazz. But besides music, expect to enjoy beverages, food, and art from local, regional, and nationwide vendors.

Float Fest

Headliners: Vampire Weekend, Deadmau5, Marshmello, Cage the Elephant

Where: Guadalupe River - Gonzales, TX

When: July 23 - 24



Spending all day seeing EDM, alternative, and hip-hop acts in the Texas summer can sound like...a bit much. But lucky for you, at this festival, goers are more than encouraged to cool off with some tubing in the Guadalupe River. With live music, aquatic activities, and camping, this festival is the epitome of summer fun.


Headliners: Metallica, Dua Lipa, J. Cole, Green Day

Where: Grant Park - Chicago, IL

When: July 28 - 31



Starting initially as a farewell tour for the singer of Jane's Addiction in 1991, Lollapalooza has become a somewhat permanent musical fixture in the Windy City. Though the festival has gone through its declines and revivals, you can expect this staple to be in full force this summer.


It's been a rough couple of years for festival-goers and live music fans in general.

But if this list reveals anything, summer music festivals are finally making a much-needed and long-awaited comeback.

So hit up your friends, grab some tickets, and start packing your bags. 2022 is going to be an unforgettable summer.

And if you're ever in need of some hemp-derived concert going enhancement, well, as always, we'll have you covered. Cheers.
