Travel

We're just a month away from one of my favorites of the year — the kickoff of summer music festivals. Not only do these annual festivals give us a chance to see our favorite musicians all in one place, if you're up for hitting the road (or booking a flight), you can get you can fuel your inner traveler, too.


No matter your music type, each of these festivals has something for everyone. Here's 8 music festivals you and your squad should definitely attend in 2019:
