Estados Unidos

No se debe subestimar el dominio cultural de los Estados Unidos. No importa lo que esté pasando en la línea política, en lo que se refiere al mundo artístico –ya sea cine, audiovisual o música– todos los caminos llevan a USA.

Entre la influencia de Hollywood y que tres de los cuatro sellos discográficos más importantes están asentados allí, no parece que el panorama vaya a cambiar.

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.

Puede que otros países ofrezcan festivales que compiten directamente con los más grandes de Norteamérica, pero no hay otro país en el que se ofrezca tal cantidad y variedad como aquí.

En sus 50 estados se pueden encontrar festivales boutique muy íntimos y gigantes festivales de fin de semana. De todos los estilos, para todos los públicos. Y cada año la lista aumenta.

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.

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.

Si te gusta el Bluegrass no te puedes perder UTOPiAfest en Texas o Huck Finn Jubilee en California. Huck Finn ha sido sede de las actuaciones de The String Cheese Incident, Ralph Stanley, Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, Yonder Mountain String Band, the Lone Bellow y muchos más.

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.

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.
