There will be 17 shows across America, and as part of their non-profit initiative there will be booths with charities at each show taking donations and giving out information. The ticket prices range from 60 to 80 bucks a piece. So, see some great bands, and lend a helping hand at the Sad Summer Fest this year.
This huge festival held in the Coachella Valley is host to a line up of huge pop acts like Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Cardi B, and Bruno Mars. This three day festival involves camping out for the weekend, and seeing live music anytime of the day. Almost as famous as its music, is its fashion. People go all out with their festival style, which attracts many celebrities to join in, and makes for an unforgettable weekend. But, start saving early, the tickets are $429 a person for the weekend!
Back to the Beach
This music festival is hosted at Huntington Beach and will have concerts by Blink 182, The Used, The Story So Far, and Anthony Green. This summer concert series will be a two day weekend fest with craft beer, food, and cocktails that has beach games to play between sets, and even has a lil’ pink zone where young kids can play away from the crowds. Weekend admission is $99 a person, although kids under ten will get in for free with one paid general admission ticket. With that pricing, you can’t miss this concert on the beach!
This, used to national tour, is now a two-day festival held in Mountain View, California that is home to pop punk, punk rock, hardcore, and metal performances. Warped Tour will hold concerts throughout the day from bands like The All-American Rejects, Good Charlotte, Circa Survive, and Simple Plan. This festival will be like a concentrated version of the national tour with booths for charities, band merch, and food and drinks. They will also have a 21 and over area that will serve beer and cocktails. The tickets for this festival are $159 for the two days, but this maybe be the farewell festival for Warped Tour, so you don’t want to miss out!
This festival is in here, although it is not actually during the summer, but had to be mentioned. And let’s be honest, it will still be 80 degrees outside. But, this is not for the weak at heart! Metalheads can rejoice for the line up of bands like Korn, Tool, Slipknot, and While She Sleeps. This metal and hard rock concert is in Sacramento, California in October and hosts dozens of rock acts throughout the weekend festival that lasts from Friday to Sunday night. The tickets are about $200 a person for the weekend, and that includes all bands on the list for the weekend. They are higher priced tickets for those who want the V.I.P. treatment with early entry, seated dining area and upfront standing room for the concerts. There will also be booths for plenty of BBQ, burgers, and bacon. So, for vegetarians, sorry this may not be the best place for you to eat so fill up before and after!
