There are few better ways to welcome warmer weather than with a day of sun, fun, and music. And fortunately, there are a number of amazing festivals that will ensure your fill of all three.
Coachella (Indio, CA)
Ah, Coachella—the ultimate place to see and be seen. While it might be more well known for its celebrity attendees and bold fashion statements, the 2020 artists aren’t anything to sneeze at, either. Travis Scott, Frank Ocean, Lana Del Rey, and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke are set to perform.

If there was ever a reason for a road trip, it’s Bonnaroo. This folky festival in the middle of Tennessee on June 11–15 draws lots of music fans that aren’t afraid to rough it, camp out, and get a little dirty. The 2020 lineup features Grand Ole Opry, Tool, Lizzo, Tame Impala, and Lana Del Rey.
Boston Calling (Boston, MA)
Once the new kid on the block, Boston Calling is celebrating its seventh year in 2020, taking place from May 22–24. This year, the lineup is all about ’90s rock. Foo Fighters, Rage Against the Machine, and Red Hot Chili Peppers are all headlining.
Governors Ball (Randall’s Island, New York)
While last year was a bit of a disaster due to a massive thunderstorm on the final day that prompted evacuations and canceled sets, “Gov Ball” (as it’s affectionately called) is hoping for redemption this year. Tame Impala, Stevie Nicks, Vampire Weekend, Missy Elliott, and Solange are all slotted to perform this year at the annually-anticipated festival from June 5–7.
Shaky Knees (Atlanta, GA)
If you’re into indie rock, consider taking a trip down to Atlanta for Shaky Knees, May 1–3. The jam-packed lineup is one of the best for fans of the genre: The Black Keys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Strokes, and The Smashing Pumpkins will all be gracing the stage.
