{LIVE MUSIC/FESTIVALS} Music Festivals 2011

Prepare for a summer of great music festivals. I thought Miami Music Week was enough, but there is way more to look forward. You have your typical Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Coachella (starting tomorrow), but this summer we have some new additions to the scene.

First, there is Electric Forest (the revamped version of the Rothbury Festival) held during the weekend of July 4th in Rothbury, MI. After Rothbury was canceled last year for lack of funding and interest, Insomniac Events has teamed up with Madison House to put on a 4 day festival in the middle of Sherwood Forest. Electric Forest promises a great line-up including artists like Tiesto, Laidback Luke, The Hood Internet, Pretty Lights, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Stephen Marley, Skrillex, Kaskade, Chiddy Bang, and of course The String Cheese Incident.

Second, the already existing Electric Daisy Carnival, started in Los Angeles, has expanded this year with festival dates in Orlando, Las Vegas, and Dallas. The festival is going on for 2 days in Orlando and Las Vegas. Swedish House Mafia actually just announced they will be playing at the EDC in Vegas.

And of course you have your Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza (which is having their 20th anniversary), Electric Zoo, and Sasquatch Festivals also. All are promising amazing lineups. Check out below some links to the festival pages and some special treats for all of you:
