2014 Urban Music Festival List

In 2013 we gave you a list of 50 music festivals that were either Urban or Camping type festivals. In 2014 we have extended our search and now have the Urban Music Festival List and a Camping Music Festival List. This year we cover 100 (which is up from 50 last year) and while we cover every month (April-November) and as many states as we could this is by no means a list of EVERY music festival in the US. To find even more festivals we suggest you check out JamBase Festival List, Music Festival Junkies or Festival Finder.

Urban Music Festival Guide & Checklist

We strongly suggest that you check out the Urban Music Festival Guide for a crash course on what to pack and bring for your next festival. For a more in-depth checklist that you can print head over to the Campmor Music Festival Gear Checklist.

    Thanks for compiling these!

    Y’all need to add the Lowell (Mass.) Folk Festival to the list. Last weekend of July (this year July 25–27).
