Music lovers are rejoicing! Live festivals are returning, bringing the sounds of music to the ears and hearts of fans who have had to rely on playlists and earbuds to bring music into their lives over the past year. The Stacker team agrees with Billy Joel when he said, "I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music."
Stacker chose 15 major upcoming festivals to create a list including their dates, highlights of headliners, and lineups. Are you a music fan who has been longing for Lollapalooza or vying for Voodoo Fest to return? While many iconic festivals had to cancel their 2020 events, our curated list illuminates that live events are coming back to life across America.
Be sure to visit the websites of the festivals to check for new protocols. In the meantime, put on your favorite playlist and scroll through our slideshow to find out if your favorite festival is one of the 15 featured. As Marilyn Manson notes, “Music is the strongest form of magic.” Isn’t it great to have live magic back in our lives?
