It seems that every year when the spring and summer music festivals announce their lineups, there's always one standout which makes it easy to decide which one to attend. This year, we are not so lucky. Between Coachella, Bonaroo, and Bottlerock alone the lineups are INCREDIBLE! Is it that bands figured out that stand alone concerts aren't the way to go this year, or did everyone just decide to party it up at festivals? Whatever the reason, if you're trying to decide which fest you're going to attend, it's been HARD! So, I decided to break it down by headliner and distance from the Tri-Cities (Portland, Seattle) to make you feel best about dropping a bunch of dough on a music festival. Hope this helps!
