5 Fall Music Festivals to Cool You Off

Words by Rachel Mallin

As we draw closer to the end of August, the daylight recedes, the air becomes breathably cool and we embark upon the season of Starbucks making more money on pumpkin spice lattes than any other time of the year. If dreams of slumming around hot music festivals were actually just dreams you never experienced in the Summer of 2018, don’t fret! There are still plenty of killer music festivals during the months of September and October for you to spend your PTO on. Let’s dive in.
