Stati Uniti

La dominazione culturale degli Stati Uniti non potrà mai essere ribadita abbastanza. Non importano quello che sta succedendo in politica, l'arte, il cinema e la musica in un modo o nell'altro trovano la propria strada verso gli USA.

E con la grande influenza di Hollywood e 3 delle principali etichette discografiche situate in America non sembra che le cose cambieranno molto presto.

Everything’s bigger here, and this, of course, applies to music festivals. The country is home to some of the biggest and most recognised in the world, with the list of American music festivals headed by the likes of Coachella, The Governors BallLollapalooza, PitchforkMonterey Jazz FestivalBonnaroo, South by Southwest, and Austin City Limits.

Magari altre nazioni possono vantare una manciata di festival alla pari con i più grandi americani ma nessun altro paese al mondo si avvicina all'incredibile volume e range degli Stati Uniti.

Ce ne sono di tutti i tipi, da festival boutique e di nicchia ai classici weekend in campagna il tutto sparso in 50 stati diversi. Ce ne sono di tutti i generi e per tutti i gusti e ogni anno ne vengono aggiunti di nuovi.

Dance music festivals include EDC Las Vegas and EDC Orlando, two huge EDM festivals, and Dancefestopia, a bass music camping festival in Kansas. The mainstay of Phoenix Lights Festival is EDM, but it also reaches into the musical spheres of techno, dubstep, and hip hop. Lights All Night takes place in Dallas between Christmas and New Year, and has featured sets from Diplo, Gucci Mane and Tiesto. At Hangout Music Festival you can enjoy hip hop, EDM, alternative, rock and pop acts, as well as taking part in a roller disco, beach sports and relaxing in a tropical spa. Elements Music & Arts Festival in Lakewood, Pennsylvania features a lineup from across the range of electronic genres, and visitors can benefit from its rural location with forest, lake, and beach areas. In Atlanta, Imagine Festival specialises in EDM and house music, with recent lineups including Diplo, Above & Beyond, Marshmello and Alison Wonderland.

I fan della musica country dovrebbero segnarsi sul calendario Stagecoach Festival a Indio, California, e Old Settlers Music Festival in Texas. Stagecoach presenta i più grandi nomi del country ma anche del folk, della bluegrass e del roots rock. Old Settlers invece ha una lineup più tradizionale e fornisce un'esperienza fantastica per tutta la famiglia.

Se ti piace la musica bluegrass non perderti UTOPiAfest in Texas e Huck Finn Jubilee in California. Quest'ultimo negli ultimi anni ha accolto sul palco The String Cheese Incident, Ralph Stanley, Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, Yonder Mountain String Band, the Lone Bellow e tantissimi altri.

Mashup festivals like KAABOO del Mar mix multi-genre music with comedy and art. Ozy Fest takes things further adding the likes of political debates, thought provoking discussions and original podcasts to broaden the appeal of their festival. Firefly Music Festival is another multi-genre festival with incredible artists, areas to explore and hammocks to relax in. If you like hard rock music acts and tattoo artists then head to Inkcarceration Festival in Ohio. Pickathon mixes a diverse rock lineup with art installations and alcoholic refreshments courtesy of local breweries and wineries. At Wonderfront Music & Arts Festival in San Diego you can expect to see R&B, rock and alternative acts, as well as tasting the best local food and drink. You can also marvel at the art installations and have fun at the beach parties. In September, in downtown Las Vegas you can experience Life is Beautiful Festival, with its mix of music, art, comedy and workshops. Expect to see acts like Chance the Rapper, Billie Eilish, Vampire Weekend, and Post Malone. Lucidity Festival mixes dance music with core principles like participation in the arts, personal growth, global healing, environmental and social responsibility, family fun and more. Lightning in a Bottle mixes electronic music (think acts like Disclosure and DJ Koze) with yoga and wellness talks, showcases and activities. At BUKU Music + Art Project in New Orleans you can find multi-genre lineups, as well as local visual artists, and surprise pop-up street performers. Making its debut in June 2020 will be Virgin Fest Los Angeles, which is likely to feature some of the biggest names in music across the spectrum of hip hop, rock, pop, and dance.
