Whether a day trip or a Metro ride away, there’s no shortage of music festivals near Los Angeles. We’re not just talking about summer music festivals either—thanks to Southern California’s persistently pleasant climate, we can enjoy outdoor fests nearly year-round. So lace up a comfortable pair of shoes for these music festivals within driving distance of L.A., from single-day affairs to camping excursions.

Ring in the New Year with confetti, pyro and 30,000 of your closest friends at Countdown. Expect about 80 dance acts to invade San Bernardino’s NOS Events Center for this year-end fest—which will take over both New Year’s Eve and the day prior.
