Smaller is better – Boutique Festivals

We know you're looking forward to Lalapalooza, Rock the Bells (if you haven't been already), and the rest of the festivals left for the season. What we want you to take note at (and make sure you check for even more next season) is the smaller festivals with great line ups and LESS PEOPLE! I don't have a problem with people but I would like to be up close towards the stage sometimes. Well here's your chance if you're in Portland or NY! ATP New York Sept 19-21 (Upstate New York – 90 mins from NYC) There is still some ticket availability for this awesome 3-day weekend in the mountains with MY Bloody Valentine and other amazing bands Music Fest Northwest Sept 3-6 (Portland) 4 days, 50- bucks. Best deal in America with bands like TV on the Radio. Vampire Weekend, Battles, Deerhunter, Mogwai, The Cool Kids, Polvo and just tons more.
