Our initial favorites also include First Aid Kit, Phosphorescent, Washed Out, Parquet Courts and local Cat Fancy enthusiasts, Tacocat.

For those looking to spend Independence Day Weekend with the masses, you’ll get a chance at soaking in Soundgarden, Kraftwerk, New Order, Frank Ocean, Royksopp + Robyn, Neutral Milk Hotel, Spoon, Broken Bells, Tegan & Sara, Local Natives, Gogol Bordello, Rhye, Black Angels, Deltron 3030 and many, many others.
