Mar 28, 2013 —  Our phones and computers may be wireless these days, but we’re plugged in more than ever. Whether logging onto Twitter, Facebook, or Reddit, we spend countless hours entranced by our real-time newsfeeds. It seems that the only moment we’re truly unplugged is while catching some ZZZs.

It’s important to log out of the plethora of applications running on our iPhones every once in a while. One way to accomplish this is by heading outdoors to a guitar festival, where the sweet strums of some long-forgotten acoustic favorites will free your mind from the bondage of social media.

Or why not go off the grid with a jazz performance? After all, peeps in the 1920s – also known as the Jazz Age, Roaring Twenties, and pretty much the best party decade of all time – didn’t notify friends on Foursquare every time they went to hear some snazzy beats.

With a variety of outdoor guitar and jazz festivals to choose from, you can worry about updating your Instagram pics later!
