Still one of the great destinations for a summer rave, California and Nevada have the continental market cornered in superfestivals. World-beating megafests such as Coachella make use of vast natural venues to attract even vaster crowds, while more modestly sized events like Culture Collide Festival cater to a more specialized (if no less energized) crowd. From parks to deserts, punk to techno, these festivals have it all. Just don't forget to bring your sun cream and shutter shades—like the music, the sun doesn't let up.
