Summer is officially here!  The kids are out of school, the temperatures are really heating up, and the music festival season is upon us.    July is typically one of the biggest months for the increasingly popular music festival scene.  In our 2012 July Music Festival Guide we will tell you about some of the biggest festivals taking place this upcoming month and point out some other interesting festivals you might not have heard of.

Talking about music festivals in July would not be complete if we didn’t at least mention what is dubbed as the World’s Largest Music Festival- Milwaukee Summerfest.  This years edition will include headliners Rascal Flatts, Gary Allen with Rodney Atkins, Kelly Clarkson with Train, Lady Antebellum, The Beach Boys, Tiesto, Iron Maiden, Zac Brown Band, Big Time Rush with Cody Simpson, Aerosmith, and Neil Diamond.

Other major music festivals are the All Good Music and High Sierra Music Festivals.  The AGM Fest will take place over 4 days at Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio.  The 2012 lineup includes the Allman Brothers Band, Phil Lesh and Friends, The Flaming Lips, Bob Weir, and Bruce Hornsby. The HSM Festival will take place at the High Sierra Music Festival Grounds in Quincy California and will include Ben Harper, STS9, Railroad Earth, Galactic, Built To Spill, Toots and the Maytals, Ryan Bingham, Soulive, ALO, Lotus, Delta Spirit, Heartless Bastards, Big Gigantic, The Devil Makes Three, Deer Tick and many more!

One of the festivals you may not have heard of before is Camp Bisco.  This electronic music festival is actually in its 11th year but has really grown recently as the popularity of electronic music has skyrocketed.  Camp Bisco 11 will feature hot acts such as the Disco Biscuits, Skrillex, Amon Tobin Isam, Crystal Castles, Bassnectar, Big Boi, Zeds Dead, Portugal the Man, Lotus, and tons more!
