Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival

When: August 7th-9th

Where: San Francisco, California

Why Go: Split across five stages (including a comedy stage and an EDM tent), this festival of music, art exhibits, gourmet food and wine tastings usually overwhelms both the senses and the wallet. Still, three-day passes to Outside Lands sold out within hours. (One-day passes remain available.) Keep your eyes and ears peeled for surprises: In 2012, Jack White pulled off a secret concert at his Third Man Records truck, playing alongside Boots Riley and Tom Morello.

Must-See Acts: Mumford & Sons, Wilco, D'Angelo and the Vanguard, the Black Keys, Kendrick Lamar, Elton John, Sam Smith, St. Vincent, G-Eazy, Caribou, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, DJ Mustard, Tame Impala, Porter Robinson
