It’s that time of the year – when we start to panic that summer’s ending, warm weather is slowly dwindling (at least for those of us on the east coast), and, for some of us, school is starting. The end of August also might appear, at first glance, like the end of another festival season.
This, however, is not the case. As I sit back and reviewed the festivals and shows I’ve been to thus far (Dreamscape, EDCNY, EDCLV, Electric Adventure, Billboard Hot 100 Festival) and those that I have coming up in the next month, I quickly realized that the best is really yet to come. Plus, in September, things have usually cooled down a little bit, which makes for a much more comfortable experience for everyone! Here are some of the biggest festivals coming up in September, complete with reasons why your festivals season has sort of just begun!
One Tribe Festival is all about good vibes. This will be the first year of what hopes to be an annual festival in California. With headlining acts such as Kygo and Gramatik, One Tribe Festival centers around other activities like yoga, camping, swimming, and a general focus on spirituality. I know I’m jealous that we don’t have more events like this on the east coast, as it’s sure to be unique and extremely special.
Just three weeks after Nocturnal, Insomniac rears its wonderful head again for Beyond SoCal. One of the coolest themes (in my opinion) that hits California, Beyond combines great outfits with outlandish performers with top-tier music for yet another magical weekend in September. Calvin Harris, Knife Party, Laidback Luke, DJ Snake, and Tiesto are just some of the big names Insomniac announced earlier this summer.
This list just wouldn’t be complete without one of, if not the most anticipated U.S. festival of 2015. After what appeared to be another amazing and unforgettable Tomorrowland, Tomorroworld returns to Georgia in late September. Dreamville camping is the way to go for this one, as it brings an added layer of depth to your experience. The lineup has just about every big name out there (including DJ Diesel – aka Shaq) and will be the perfect end (or, maybe not!) to your festival season. Tickets are still available, but not for long, so make sure you do the right thing and lock in your spot!
