||During the warm summer
months, there's little better entertainment value than going to a music festival.
Experience the great outdoors, meet friends old and new, and listen to some
great music. (Not that music festivals are restricted to the summer
months - there are wonderful festivals held all year 'round.)
If you're interested in finding a music festival in your area, or in an area you'll be visiting on your vacation, or even if you want to plan your vacation around a music festival - more people than you'd imagine do just this - or if you're involved in a music festival and want to make it known to a wider audience, these resources may be of assistance.
One indispensable festival-related resource is Musi-Cal, an online musical events database. Through Musi-Cal, one can find out where their favorite performer is playing, or find out what's happening in or around a certain city.
This commercial site offers lots of information on music festivals of all kinds, and offers advertising and listings to festival organizers.
