Four American Summer Music Festivals

Every summer, different states across America host energetic music festivals providing individuals from all over an escape. The festivals are weekends full of nothing but bubbly people and outstandingly loud music. People get their hands on tickets months before the event before they’re quickly sold out. These festivals leave great impressions on everyone who attends, ideal for perfect summer memories. Below are some of the upcoming, action-packed festivals of summer 2017.

1. Rolling Loud, Miami, Florida
Rolling Loud is another music festival that is on its way to becoming sold out. It’s taking place on May 5th to the 7th in Bayfront Park in Miami, Florida. If you’re spending the weekend attending the festival, Delmay and Partners is Rolling Loud’s official hotel provider. Not much of a driver? Take the Metrorail and ride to Government Center. From there, transfer to their Metromover until you reach Bayfront Park. It easily beats sitting in traffic for hours.

Lineup: Kendrick Lamar, Future, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Mac Miller, Kevin Gates, Run the Jewels, Post Malone, Migos, Lil Yachty, Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Polly A, and more. This three-day experience doesn’t offer a single day pass — tickets are available now.

2. Hangout Music Festival, Gulf Shores, Alabama
The Hangout Music Festival is taking place in the public beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama. There are two types of travel packages: Turquoise Place and The Beach Club. The Turquoise Place offers to choose from GA, VIP and Super VIP travel packages for four people. There are three-bedroom condos and they provide shuttle passes to and from the festival, admissions to an exclusive Hangout Music Fest After Party and luxury amenities such as private hot tubs, lazy river and pools. The Beach Club travel package is for two or four people. You can also choose from GA, VIP or Super VIP tickets. This package includes one, two or three-bedroom condos. It comes with a shuttle pass and access to resort amenities like a private beach, on-site restaurant and tennis courts.

3. Governors Ball, New York City, New York
Festivals in the Big Apple are always a little extra exciting, especially the Governors Ball. Hosted in Randall’s Island Park, there are a number of nearby hotels for attendees. These include Iberostar 70 Park Avenue, Aloft Harlem, W New York, and The Westin New York Grand Central, just to name a few.

It’s created exclusively by New York-based artists, designed and curated by META. Panorama also features The Point, an open-air club that is a shaded, misted dance party with continuous house and techno all day and night in the center of the festival. There are two types of travel packages, depending on the amount of people. However, all packages include a three night stay at the Park South Hotel, GA passes to the festival, ferry passes to ride to and from the festival each day and exclusive merchandise items.
