The Best November Festivals in the USA 2021

The Best November Festivals in the USA 2021

November is by no means high festival season, but the music never stops in the good ol' US of A. Across the country this month everything from massive multi-stage, headliner status hip hop and EDM behemoths to boutique rock and techno affairs to intimate folk and country showcase festivals will present the wide range of sounds that make up the unique American music scene. 

Here are our favorite festivals taking place in November 2021.

Art With Me - Miami

Festival Lineup: Sublime With Rome, Lee Burridge, Tycho, Cultura Profética, Birds of Mind, Apache, YokoO

Art With Me is a culture festival that first started in Tulum, Mexico. Music is of course an integral part of the experience, but it is only one of the festival's six pillars, which are: art, breathe, care, dance, eat, and play. All of these focuses combined make Art With Me one of the most immersive festivals in the world, featuring massive art installations and complete art galleries, a wide range of wellness programming, environmental expert panel discussions, and even a full slate of offerings for children to convey the connection between all art forms and living things.

When & Where: November 26-28, 2021; Miami, Florida

Day N Vegas

Festival Lineup: Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone, Tyler, The Creator, SZA, Lil Baby, Doja Cat, Lil Uzi Vert

Day N Vegas is heading into its second edition in 2021 and it's not hard to see why the fledgling festival has rocketed up the American pecking order so quickly: its lineups to date have been nothing short of eye-popping. Grabbing headline sets from the biggest names in hip hop and filling out the rest of the bill with a who's who list of buzzy genre mainstays and up-and-comers, the sky's the limit for this festival. 

When & Where: November 12-14, 2021; Las Vegas, Nevada

Desert Daze

Festival Lineup: The War On Drugs, Kamasi Washington, Japanese Breakfast, Toro Y Moi, Ty Segall, Tim Heidecker & Weyes Blood performing Fear of Death, Devendra Banhart

Perhaps the premier psychedelic-tinged festival in The States, the sun-drenched, fuzzed-out sounds that pervade the artists' music that make up the bill are perfectly melded with Desert Daze's palm tree lined, beach-fronted location on Lake Perris. Skip tripping in Joshua Tree and come here instead. 

When & Where: November 12-14, 2021; Lake Perris, California
