The Hottest Music Festivals of 2014

Good music doesn't have an expiration date, but the best music festivals are always scheduled for warmer months—or at least staged in non-arctic climates. Here, we've rounded up this year's essential celebrations of sound, organized by date.

Newport Folk Festival

Location: Newport, Rhode Island
The vibe: Whether it's because of the calming New England location, the folk music, or the beautiful views of Newport Harbor, this one tends to be a lot less rowdy—but no less entertaining—than other festivals.
2014 performers: Band of Horses, Mavis Staples, Phox, Shakey Graves, Benjamin Booker
Info: July 25–27; newportfolk.org
