As far as our travel guides go, we're bringing you three comprehensive ones that are essential viewing before heading to your September music festival of choice. Firstly, we have our Outlook Festival Guide, featuring not only local recommendations and travel tips, but also full event listings of the boat parties accompanying the Croatian festival. 

If you're heading to the Fall 2014 edition of Boston Calling, be sure to check out our guide for the best spots to eat, sleep, shop, party, and explore around the city as well as info regarding the festival's official after-parties. 

Finally, check out our Decibel Guide if you plan to attend the Seattle electronic music festival/conference for the best ways to get to and around the city as well as suggestions for killer restaurants, hotels, boutiques, and more.


In September we'll be in attendance at Boston Calling and Riot Fest Chicago, so you can bet we'll have a bunch of pre- and post-coverage from those. Look out for playlists, top picks, and then reviews and photo galleries. 

In September we'll also help you wind down from summer festival season and gear up for fall with tips to make every day more like a festival, a list of our most-anticipated fall albums, and features geared towards our favorite fall fests like CMJ, BEMF, ACL, and Fun Fun Fun.
