The best summer music festivals in 2017

Music festivals have become as essential a feature of summer in New York as ice-skating and hot chocolate are to winter in the city. What makes New York's summer music festivals so great? We'll start with the beautiful weather, then add the fact that you'll be watching your favorite bands play in NYC parks and other truly iconic surroundings—say, Central Park, or the leafy BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! bandshell. But for those dedicated festivalgoers willing to travel, we've rounded up the best of the best summer music festivals nationwide.  So be sure to go to some of Gotham's rockin' festivals, but don't blame us if you can't resist splurging on a trip across the country to attend some of the other amazing festivals going on this summer. Whichever ones you decide to go to, just don't forget that '80s sun visor. RECOMMENDED: Full guide to summer concerts in NYC
