Feb 20, 2013 —  Tired of hearing your mom and dad – or grandma and grandpa – babble on forever about how music used to mean something in the “good old days,” when Bob Dylan, The Who, and Jimi Hendrix all took the stage at Woodstock in 1969?

Even if you revere the fine work of the legends that performed at the rural New York setting over forty years ago, you still want to create some concert and festival memories of your own; after all, you’ll need some ammunition to bore your children with when the time comes.

It’s not too late for you to hit one of the many American music festivals that cover every genre of music from dubstep to folk rock. Buy a bandana, sport a pair of funky shades, pack a cooler, and road trip it to anywhere from California (Coachella) to Boston (Life is Good Festival). 

Once you reach your destination, you can sing along with either Justin Bieber or Mumford & Sons, or simply lose yourself in the beats thrown down by DJs like deadmau5. Who knows, perhaps you’ll find a love interest in the middle of a dance party.

Whether or not you encounter a special someone, going to one of the many American music festivals is a right of passage. Don’t miss out on one of these sunny, melodious instant memories.

I'm a music festival junkie and this is a good list. There's some festivals on here that I wasn't even aware of.
