Today’s economy has driven so many of us to only be able to commit to one or two major events each year. All of these big arena shows are now costing well over 2 and 300 to get in, and that’s not even including the parking or food. Supply and demand is bringing the price of people like Cody Jinks well into the throes of the unaffordable range, am I right?

Many of people are turning to the prices of the festivals, where you can find 20 to 40 bands for the price of one arena show. Many people are investing in one or two major festivals per year to see some of the top notch acts of the independent circuit juxtaposed with some local bands and up and coming smaller acts.

There is currently now  such an immense influx of smaller independent festivals popping up all over that no matter where in America you an easily travel to, there is a festival nearby this year.  Many of them you can even buy a one day ticket to and just visit while you see your favorite bands. Even if you just want to go check out the atmosphere for future camping.
