2015 Summer Music Concerts You Can’t Miss

All my friends refer to me as the music nut.

I love music and I love it even more when I can experience it live in concert.


Summer is a great time to get out and enjoy the creative sounds of various artists. Here is a quick rundown of some shows I’m going to be trying to get to this summer.

Make Music Pasadena

I’ve been to this event a few years now, it’s always a good time. I mean, how can you go wrong with 30 different venues and 150 performances in the heart of beautiful Pasadena?

This is being held June 6 between 11 in the morning until 11 at night. It’s a great day full of music, street vendors and Old Pasadena charm. For a full list of performers just visit makemusicpasadena.org.

Electric Daisy Carnival

If you’re in Las Vegas June 19-21 be prepared to see candy covered men and women in bright colored and eccentric clothing. This event is cool because unlike other festivals that are going on during the day, at EDC the performances happen between sunset and sunrise. Make sure to stay hydrated because while it is at night, you’re still in the desert in the summer.


This year music goers can look forward to the likes of Billy Joel, Mumford & Sons and more in Manchester, TN from June 11 thru June 14. This is one of the only festivals that could probably top Burning Man as it’s a 4 day camping experience in the Tennessee heat. Nobody will be able to say you’re not a dedicated music fan, once you’ve completed you’re first Bonnaroo experience.

There are so many more festivals during the Summer it’s almost ridiculous. Here’s a short list of some that you should definitely check out:

  • Newport Folk Festival
  • Lollapalooza
  • KCON
  • Riot Fest
  • TomorrowWorld
  • Austin City Limits
