2014 Music Festival UPDATES

If you are looking for music festivals taking place in 2014 we have created two new pages for you.

2013 Music Festival Guides

Using a variety of sources such as the JamBase Festival List, Music Festival Junkies, Festival Finder and others we have tried to put cover the map with festivals for you. While we only have mapped 50 Music Festivals there are many more out there this and every year! So whether you like the Urban Music Festivals or the Rural and Camping Music Festivals you should be able to find a music fest near you.

We also have put together the Campmor Music Festival Gear Checklist for you and included a downloadable and easy to print PDF version as well. So be sure to check it out and make sure you have everything you need prior to heading out to your next Music Festival. We also encourage you to check the Festival’s website and see what they allow or DON’T allow you to bring on the grounds.
