This summer’s music festival season has reached its peak. Now that August has settled in, our sights are turned to the foreboding coming of fall and the different wardrobes, weekend activities and lattes that come with the chillier weather.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t still music festivals happening that you should go to — in fact, there are four fests in New England between now and the end of September where you can enjoy the late summer warmth outside with great live music. And now that the likes of Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo are long gone, there’s much less pressure to wear fringed crop tops and flower headbands.
Life is good Festival
September 21 & 22; Canton, Massachusetts
Looking for an influx of good feelings and positive vibes to carry you through the official end of summer and into October? Then head to the Life is good Festival, where they specialize in those fields. Taking place at Prowse Farm, it doesn’t get much better than two days of good music, games, activities, arts and crafts, and more fun for the whole family. This year’s fest is headlined by Jack Johnson and Daryl Hall & John Oates, with supporting sets throughout the day from Trampled By Turtles, The Roots, Dawes, Amos Lee, Gentleman Hall and others. This weekend is bound to be a good one, appropriately so.
Tickets: Adult weekend passes available for $120 (kids $35); Individual day passes available for $65 (kids $20).
