Coachella 2013   Lollapalooza 2013   Austin City Limits 2013
Time Out logged an unprecedented number of hours soaking up the country's best live music in 2013, and, needless to say, we loved every damn minute of it. The elder statesmen of the American music festival scene—Coachella among them—delivered their reliable blend of hype-worthy bands and colorful characters. Meanwhile, homegrown fests like FYF Fest took their game to the next level.

Along the way, we happily documented our favorite artists new and old. Here, our best concert and festival photos from a wild and raucuos, always rockin' 2013.
