INfamous 6ixx Events Alert: Music Festivals 2012

We get a ton of questions about music festivals going on throughout the US and abroad that we thought we would take a minute out and write a quick article about music festivals and also list a few of the festivals we know of going on throughout the year. 

As an up and coming act, playing music festivals is 100% in your best interest. Festival venues are usually style specific with the music that they feature so for acts that don’t have a huge fan-base, it’s a great opportunity for them to connect with new fans that like and support the style of music that they do. Take a look through this list of 50 festivals going on and see if there are any in your area that you could connect with and possible play at. To get more specific information an each festival just copy and paste the name into google and their site should come right up.  

Good luck!
