The Best Music Festivals of 2024, From Coachella and Bonnaroo to Newport Folk Fest and More

The Oscars may be the Super Bowl of red carpet fashion — but festival season is the sartorial playground for summer style. The spring festival circuit kicks off in the Southern California desert with two weekends of Coachella at Indio’s Empire Polo Field, where the country music fest Stagecoach also takes place.

Frequent festgoers can save up to 30 percent off concert tickets with FestivalPass, which offers some of the best deals and no ticketing fees on over 50,000 live events, hotels and more. Memberships range from $19 to $99 per month (or $210 to $1,080 per year with annual plans) and include early access, fee-free tickets and more perks.

Those who can’t attend their favorite events in person can livestream the shows online. Prime Video and Amazon Music Twitch will livestream Stagecoach so fans can watch Eric Church, Jelly Roll, Elle King, Post Malone, Willie Nelson & Family and more from home. Hulu has yet to announce if it will once again be the exclusive streamer for Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits; stay tuned for more. And once you’ve planned your concert itinerary, don’t forget your festival essentials and head-to-toe looks, too.

Ahead, see some of the best major music festivals happening in the U.S., from Coachella and Stagecoach in the California desert to East Coast happenings such as the Governors Ball and the Newport Jazz and Folk festivals.
