Why Go: The annual summer staple remains wildly popular among tweens and still primarily features alternative, punk and hardcore bands, though it has placed a heavier emphasis on electronic acts in recent years. The relatively inexpensive festival is also a great place to meet band members, who sometimes staff their own merch tents.
