A few Phish, BOnnaroo when it was still hippy, and a bunch of other smaller named ones
No interest in going to coachella, i don't like the desert

Carrie said...

I used to attend Coachella back in the day before it sucked.

Lurky McLurkster said...

sandybrook said...

With the exception of glastonbury, pretty much every major one in the UK over the 25+ years. Just got my tickets for download this weekend.

filmfanb said...

I got to Coachella every year. My other favorites are Primavera in Barcelona and Latitude in UK.

Joel Theriot said...

Bonnaroo, ChicagoFest (yes I'm that old), Pitchfork, RiotFest, Moedown.

Pentaport Festival in Incheon. Jason Mraz was great.

Brian said...

The closest I've been was a Lilith Fair test show, the bill was Sarah McLachlan, Paula Cole and Suzanne Vega. They wanted to see what kind of response they would get with an all female bill. Now I"m 49 and the idea of spending a day at a music festival sounds like pure hell.

Farmgirl said...

Horde Festival
Lillith Fair
Clearwater Festival

TLT said...

@longtimereader, so jealous. I love Slipknot's Live at Download album. Hope I make it sometime.

Thia said...

I've been to all the Lilith Fairs, HFS (local DC metal festival), DC Jazz Fest, and a few others.

Truthseeker said...

I go to Welcome to Rockville every year, for my birthday, its next weekend, and i will be there with bells on, part of the Worlds Loudest month, and seeing Ozzy and Foo.. and Godsmack, Bullet and FFDP, the BEST Hale female.. Lizzy.. other than that, just the spirit of the Suwanee music festival growing up with my dad, that is bluegrass.

Chug ChooChoo said...

I do Lockn and Floydfest every year. This summer I am also going to see Phish at the Gorge and to their phestival, Curveball.

I love festival season.

Oh and this summer I'm going on some of Ween tour. Dream come true.

Woodstock 1994

It was pretty good. My buddy was a reporter for a local rag so he got us free passes. Green Day, Metallica, Chile Peppers, Nine Inch Nails and even Candlebox...lol

loveless said...

I went to the first Lollapolooza. Being in the sun all day (absolutely no shade anywhere), helped me decide I was too old for that shit. It took me two weeks to recover.

Mhdz said...

I used to go to Fuck Yeah Fest every year, before it became FYF Fest. Much better line-ups back then. Plus, it was spread out over different venues and included art and comedy shows. The current iteration sucks.

I also once went to Horde Festival way back in the day. I realized that Dave Matthews Band was actually really good live, and that Lenny Kravitz was terrible.

Kendrick Schroder said...

The first one I ever went to is half-forgotten now but was basically the predecessor of L - the one with the tribal name. I remember that a certain biopic-ed rap act was scheduled to play, but the OC police wouldn't let them. It was mostly because of a specific, then controversial song. So their friend from the area - the rapper turned later actor - came out and did the song himself.

orangesoda said...

Ozzfest, once. I had a fear of portaloos and having to use one there definitely made it 100% worse. Never again. I'm happy being a grandma.

orangesoda said...

I'm not actually a grandma. I just stay home now, drinking whiskey and judging the crazy kids that go out there and brave the portaloos.

SkittleKitty said...

Lollapalooza, ver 1.0, back in 1991. That's it.

I would be interested in hearing acts at Bonnaroo, but I hate being outdoors that much so that's not likely to ever happen.

Conde Nasty said...

Live Aid (UK), Woodstock '99, OzzFest, Glastonbury, Coachella and a few more.

Jerry Jam 2017, the one on Long Island. Heard some damned good music.

AkhaldanSolo said...

Went to a neat festival in the Pocanos one year called Gathering Of The Vibes. I didn't have much money for the $125.00 weekend pass but somehow God was shining down on me and I found a backstage pass necklace laying on the ground for a roadie for Little Feat. Seeing he wasn't around of course it went around my neck. The highlight of the show was Jorma Kaukonen formerly of Airplane and Hot Tuna. He can really make his guitar sing. There was one point when a skinny white haired old man with a handlebar mustache walked over to us and asked if he could partake in our bowl, amazed to recognize him as Tom Constanten from the early days of The Grateful Dead.

Sara, Making It Work said...

I am far too old and boring now and averse to large crowds of teenagers. But I haven't always been. I saw Lollapalooza once in my teen years (93?), and the 2nd & 3rd Austin City Limits years in my 20s.
These days I do enjoy craft beer festivals.

Sd Auntie said...

Would like to go to Austin city limits someday...we used to have street scene in San Diego until they ruined it by making it all ages. Now it no longer exists. Trying to get into Outlands in SF but it sells out fast.80s had US festival but never made it!

jenn said...

Jazz fest hagerstown Md. Good music but a lot of drunks to navigate around

SaraM2411 said...

Hangout Music Fest, Gulf Shores AL. The first few years were really solid, now aimed more towards college kids, not nearly as fun.

Sagan said...

Back in 1989, I was fortunate enough to attend the Moscow Music Peace Festival concerts in Russia (obv... or not, if you're too young to remember.)

Tara Mc said...

Went to Lolla in Paris last year.Body &Soul twice (Irish festival)

HayMcMusic said...

I go to Austin City Limits Festival every year, lineup and tickets are being announced this week!!! Fingers crossed for an incredible weekend 2 lineup, because I’m going all in platinum VIP this year. Will probably never be able to do it again!!!

Han Niam said...

Tons of tiny local festivals plus whatever the performers on Pride stages count as. They’re laid back and fun.

It would take a hell of a lot of money to get me to any of the big ones.

Down by the seashore said...

Us Festivals, 1982 and 1983.... Talking Heads, U2, The Cars, Pat Benatar, and a bunch of other great bands were there for 3 days of drug fueled music in the desert

Crazycatlady said...
