    Default US American Festivals between 06/07 and 08/05

    Hey everybody,

    after last year's Lollapalooza (great festival!) I'll visit the states again. Unfortunately I have to leave at August 5th so I can't make it to Lollapalooza this year. But I'm searching for another festival that I can visit over here. I just found out about Osheega (or something) in Canada and All Points West in NYC, both looking quite nice. But maybe you know some other festivals between the 7th of July and the 5th of August in the states that are quite similar to festivals like Lollapalooza, Coachella and so on. I dont care if it has a camping place, it's all about the line up. And I dont need 3 huge headliners (but that would be fine anyway), just some nice bands.

    The festival should either be between Boston/NY/Toronto/Montreal area and Miami (so basicly along the East coast) but if there is a nice festival on the West coast (Vancouver/Seattle to Las Vegas/San Francisco/Los Angeles) just tell me as well.

    I searched the internet via Google but found nearly nothing except of the 2 festivals mentioned above and some wine drinking festivals?!

    Thank you!

    This Capitol Hill Block Party sounds good, do you have some information about it? I searched the internet but found hardly anything. Seems like Jesus Lizard is playing and you say that Sonic Youth will play as well? Do you have a source? And do you know when it will held (found something about 24/25th July)?

    Nothing is completely confirmed yet, but they are the heavily rumored headliners. The likely dates are July 24th and 25th.

    Here are some sources:
