The month kicks off with sets from pop stars like Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and the Chainsmokers at Lollapalooza and continues with an array of festivals devoted from everything from hot dogs to sangria to house music. If you're looking for reasons to get out, you can look up and catch the Air and Water Show, run a 5K while eating Stan's Donut or nerd out among the celebs at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con.
