Hulaween 2016 Recap

5 New U.S. Festivals You Shouldn't Miss Out On In 2017

CRSSD festivals post

It's no surprise how much myself and the team here love festivals. On top of festivals being some of the most fun events, they continue to be one of the absolute best places to discover new artists from all genres. 

With there being so many events popping up in this day and age, our priorities have shifted and our standards have gone up. It used to just be about the lineup, but now we're starting to factor in the experience a bit more so than the actual lineup. So what captures "the experience"? The lineup, the sound and stage production, the environment, the people and non-music activities . There are plenty other factors that come into play, but those feel like the main contributors.

While U.S. festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza and EDC take up most of the spotlight on a national and global scale, there are some incredible new festivals that have joined the U.S circuit that need to be mentioned. We've decided to highlight five of these that we view as the best.

In order to qualify for this list, we defined "new" as the festival being debuted in 2015 or later. After hearing about so many new festivals every year, we wanted to help you by pinpointing five festivals that are highly worth considering to add to your list in 2017.

These are listed in calendar year order, not order of preference.

There's something for everyone here. 

The lineup includes Bassnectar, Flume, Pretty Lights, Kings Of Leon, Usher & The Roots, GRiZ, SNAILS, Logic, Wiz Khalifa, Rae Sremmurd, Porter Robinson (live), Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, D.R.A.M., Snakehips, Gallant, Louis The Child, FKJ, and many more. Buy tickets here.

Additionally, they bring an exciting variety of newcomers including everything from house to indie electronic, to indie bands taking a more mature approach to the electronic festival.
