The Bumbershoot festival takes place at 74 acre Seattle Centre, Washington over the Labor Day Weekend. The name Bumbershoot is taken from a slang word for umbrella. In North America, it is the largest urban music event. From folk to rock, you will witness everything in this annual music and arts fest. There are also alternative acts from around the world, from legends to local acts, you will surely be pleased on listening to these. If ear candy is your flavor, this event also provides a feast of spoken word, comedy, theater performance, literary arts and dance.


Long Beach Blues Festival 

The Long Bleach festival also takes place over Labor Day weekend. This event offers the best of jazz, blues rock and electric blues at tree dense and beautiful Rainbow Lagoon park of Long Beach, California. The music is set to melt your soul. Moreover, the part is close to Pacific Ocean, so you get cool air from the coast while you enjoy the music.

Not many music festivals are as well recognized as Lollapalooza. It takes place every August in Chicago. It was created by Perry Farrell, Jane’s Addiction singer in 1991.
