Have you ever been to a music festival? They're the best. You get to listen to bands you love and bands you've never heard of (but will come to love <3) ALL FRICKIN' DAY.

For us on the west coast there's tons of festivals to choose from, as big and insane as Coachella or as small and DIY as Treefort.

Are you too young to attend? Too busy, too broke? Fear not, for I come bearing gifts -- gifts that are CD-shaped and can be borrowed from the library! You can enjoy festival music without paying for gas or plane tickets. Here's some bands that performed at the Treefort Music Fest in 2013:
