Festivais mais populares
Estados Unidos da América
A domínio cultural dos Estados Unidos da América é enorme. Independentemente do panorama político em vigor na altura, todas as vertentes artísticas, sejam estas cinematográficas, visuais ou musicais, acabam por passar pelos EUA.
Com a influência de Hollywood bem cimentada e com quatro das maiores empresas discográficas com sede na América, não se prevê que isto venha a mudar num futuro próximo.
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 Ball, Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, Monterey Jazz Festival, Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, and Austin City Limits.
Alguns países podem-se orgulhar de organizar uma mão cheia de festivais equivalentes aos grandes eventos americanos, mas nenhum outro oferece um volume equivalente ao dos Estados Unidos.
Nos 50 estados deste território há de tudo, desde pequenos festivais boutique na cidade a enormes eventos rurais de fim de semana. Há festivais para todos os géneros musicais e audiências e todos os anos aparecem mais eventos.
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.

In Atlanta, Imagine Festival specialises in EDM and house music, with recent lineups including Diplo, Above & Beyond, Marshmello and Alison Wonderland.
Fans of country music should show up to Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California or Old Settlers Music Festival in Texas. Stagecoach features the biggest names in country, as well as folk, bluegrass and roots rock acts. Old Settlers has a more traditional lineup and provides a wholesome experience for all the family.
If you are into Bluegrass then head to UTOPiAfest in Texas or Huck Finn Jubilee in California. Huck Finn has played host to The String Cheese Incident, Ralph Stanley, Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, Yonder Mountain String Band, the Lone Bellow, and many more.
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.
