Memorial Day Weekend Overflows With Music Fests

    By Croix Provence


    Gotta love an extended weekend, especially one in the middle of summer! There are so many music festivals to choose from that it’s nearly impossible to pick which one to go to! How will you ever pick? Rest easily, friends: I am here to do all of the hard work for you. I will review the lineups for these festivals, break down the info, and rate everything together; all you have to do is show up! As per usual, we will use the Croix Scale from Bad to Bad-Ass to determine the lineup rating.


    Let’s get started, shall we?

    If only you could split yourself in to five different awesome people, and go to five different awesome music festivals over Memorial Day weekend! Since you can’t, you’ll have to pick, just like me. If I were you, I would hit these festivals up in this order, based on all of the factors I listed: 1st – Summercamp; 2nd – Boston Calling; 3rd – Lightning In A Bottle; 4th – Sasquatch!; 5th – Counterpoint. Whatever you do, hurry up and buy a ticket so that you can grab early bird prices while they’re still hot! Enjoy your magical musical weekend!
