Festival Season Is Coming To Tucson

Posted By on Tue, Sep 27, 2016 at 10:30 AM

There's an estimated 32 million people in the U.S. who attend music festivals each year and that number continues to rise because of popular demand from millennials around the country. And as a frequent festival-goer myself, it seems as if Tucson has officially jumped on the popular bandwagon and is now offering two major shows to kick-start festival season this October.

To start off the month, Oro Valley Music Festival will be swinging by the Oro Valley Marketplace (955 W. Vistoso Highlands Drive) for a two-day event Oct. 1-2 and will include live performances from Billy Currington, ID Nail, Daughtry, Colbie Caillat, Simple Plan and many more.  The festival claims to be "the next best thing to hit Tucson," and with this line-up, I don't think they are messing around.

And it doesn't end there...

To round off the month, Dusk Music Festival will be held right before Halloween weekend on Saturday, Oct. 22 at Rillito Park Race Track (4502 N. 1st Avenue), and will include performances from Matt and Kim, RL Grime, A-Trak, DJ Mustard, Danny Brown, Calexico, Wild Belle and Luna Aura. This festival has more of an "electronic feel" to it as well as more indie-based genres that will leave you feeling like a kid again.
