It’s almost time to pull those cut-off shorts out of your closet.
It’s never too early to start planning your summer music festival pilgrimages—even if you are still wearing your parka. Whether you’re headed down the street to sway to the sweet sound of overlapping stages or you’re hopping on a flight to hear familiar artists in an unfamiliar setting, music festivals are the best place to get your heart pumping in the warm weather. (And marking them on your calendar now is the best way to get through your winter blues.)
