Summer is pretty much here, and besides the fact that it means warmer weather and packed beaches, it also means that it’s time for the season of music festivals. It has become somewhat of a tradition for music lovers. Every year people save up their money to attend their favorite venue in hopes to not only see their favorite artist, but also explore new musicians and genres. It truly has become an exhilarating experience that bands people together through one powerful common interest. Still, these concerts are nowhere near free and not everyone has the money to attend every single festival. This is why many magazines, websites, and newspapers try to analyze the best places to go based on prices and overall content. This may seem like a great idea, which it is, but sometimes facts and opinions can override each other even in a professional setting.
