Top Fests of the Summer - Part 1
This list is a comprehensive compilation of what our team's CL Craig put together, pulling from a wide range of musical genres with events taking place all over the domestic U.S. If you miss any of these this year, plan ahead for these annual gatherings. We at MUMFF will be running multiple iterations so feel free to interact with us on social media @MUMFF_ or @InfocusTVonline with your recommendations.
Welcome to Rockville
Kicking the list off with an early starter we've got the behemoth of all rock music festivals, taking place in Daytona, Florida where headbangers will camp out between May 19th-May 21st.
The legends of rock are expected to have fans more than satisfied by a plethora of heavy metal, hard rock and everything in between. Rockville is an interesting event because there are multiple generations of Rock music icons participating on the lineup. As America's biggest rock festival we expect some monumental performances from the likes of Kiss, Korn, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Breaking Benjamin, Megadeth, Skillet, Underoath, Black Label Society, We Came as Romans, Guns n Roses, Rise Against, In Flames, Alexisonfire, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins and many many more!
Brown's Valley, California is about to get the royal treatment in cutting edge bass music on May 13th-15th at Sycamore Ranch. If you love dubstep, DNB, IDM, experimental bass and everything in between you'd better start planning for this major musical nexus. If you missd it, then keep an eye out for next year's lineup.
Celebrating it's 6th Anniversary, the Untz is returning to bring the best of underground bass music to the Sacramento and Bay area of Cali. Fans can expect late night sets, takeovers at various sound stages and plenty of other activities, such as yoga and workshops in between sets. Wormhole Productions and partners seem to have a firm grip on the top talent pushing this range of bass music. See the full lineup here on their site!
Lovers and Friends
An R&B music lovers dream come true. Lovers and Friends produced by Snoop Dogg and Live Nation Events will be a tremendous clash of soulful acts and R&B legends all taking place May 14th and 15th in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although the event is officially sold out, if you're savvy on social media or buy back apps you may still be able to score a ticket.
Either way we will be on the lookout for up coming years, assuming it becomes an annual affair. The lineup definitely delivers with a long list of the best in the business including Usher, Ludacris, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Lil Jon, T-Pain, Brandy, Monica, Genuine, Jodeci and many more. See the full lineup here.
Detroit is getting the full range experience of music from Saturday May 28th-May30th 2022 at the Hart Plaza. Going down over Memorial Day weekend, Movement Festival offers a diverse lineup ranging from Techno to house, Hip-Hop, experimental and many other sub-genres in between. Standout names we identified from top to bottom are 2Chainz, Adam X, Audion, Ash Lauryn, The Blessed Madonna, Chris Lake, Claud Vonstroke, Flying Lotus, Goldie b2b LTJ Bukem, Hirohoki Yamamura and many many more. Full list of performers can be found here.
If you haven't heard of Lolla by now you're truly living under a rock as far as the festival experience goes. The event producers of Lollapalooza this year are throwing EVERYTHING at the music heads from around the country.
Nothing is off limits as the lineup is completely stacked with an array of the top acts in basically every music space around the globe. If you can make it to Lollapalooza July 28-31, 2022 in Chicago you're truly in for a treat. Just to give you an idea of the magnitude of the overall lineup here are some of the names we felt HAD to be mentioned. Metallica, J Cole, Doja Cat, Green Day, Lil Baby, Charli XCX, Glass Animals, Billy Strings, Big Sean, Kaskade, Rezz, Denzel Curry and the list goes oooon and on from there.
