In chronological order, here are just five of the many upcoming music festivals to look out for in January:
The MusicFest at Steamboat
Jan 5-10, 2017 | CO
If you enjoy skiing and listening to American country music, then The MusicFest at Steamboat is perfect for you. This six day festival includes 50 bands, five mountains to ski down, and beautiful Colorado views. With lodging available just steps away from the slopes and one big tent to house thousands of fans, the event is scheduled for the beginning of January — so book your trip now before time runs out!
NYC Winter Jazzfest
Jan 5-10, 2017 | NY
Named by Downbeat Magazine as the “Woodstock for the hot jazz set,” this annual jazz fest takes place in NYC during the first week of the new year. Featuring artists and eras from the past to present day, there will be multiple stages to explore and artists to listen to. Day and full festival passes are still available, but you won’t want to miss out on Friday and Saturday’s hot jazz showcase!
Jan 6-10 & Jan 10-14, 2017 | FL
Love vacations and electronic dance music? Holy Ship! combines both in a two-part, four-day music festival cruise. Although tickets are already sold out, there’s a waitlist to join in case anybody backs out. Ranging from new, up-and-coming producers to seasoned headlining DJs, you’ll be sure to experience hundreds of bass drops as the ship ventures through the caribbean.
30A Songwriters Festival
Jan 13-15, 2017 | FL
This 8th annual festival is designed to showcase the talents of 175+ singers and songwriters. Taking place on beautiful Florida beaches over the course of three days, participating venues are both in and outdoor and allow up to anywhere from 50-5,000 people to experience the music.
Rock Legends Cruise
Jan 19-23, 2017 | FL
Similar to Holy Ship!, the Rock Legends Cruise is a musical sailing which takes place from January 19-23. Artists from the likes of Bad Company and Blue Ӧyster Cult will be rocking your world as you travel the seas on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. As if rock music fans need any more incentive to book their trip, all proceeds from ticket sales go directly to Native American Heritage Association (NAHA). Rock out and do good for your community by attending the Rock Legends Cruise!
No matter which genre of music you enjoy, find a person to go with and buy your tickets to one of these festivals now!
