Mile High Music Festival, Outside Lands, and Bumbershoot

The temperature isn’t the only thing heating up as we head through August. We’re turning it up a notch for #MusicMonday by highlighting the next three music festivals you’ll want to check out.

Outside Lands – San Francisco, CA – August 14-15

Set in beautiful Golden Gate Park, Outside Lands is a 2 day festival that features music, food, wine, and art. Download the Outside Lands iTunes sampler to get a preview of this year’s acts or check out the full lineup. You can also follow Ranger Dave on Twitter for updates.

Mile High Music Festival – Denver, CO – August 14-15

Ok, you can’t be at two festivals at once, but you’ll wish you could.  Jack Johnson headlines the first day, and the Dave Matthews Band closes out the festival on Sunday.  Connect with MHMF via social media for more info.

Bumbershoot – Seattle, WA – September 4-6

Celebrating its 40th anniversary, Bumbershoot is a music and arts festival held at Seattle Center over Labor Day weekend. In addition to the theatre, dance, and comedy, Bumberfans will enjoy music from Bob Dylan, Weezer, The Decemberists, Mary J. Blige, and many more.

For a mix of artists from all three festivals, check out the iTunes playlist below.

We’ll feature one more installment of our Outdoor jammin’ series and end the summer with three more music festivals. Can you guess which ones they’ll be?
