    5 Reasons Why MUSIKFEST is the Best

    Summertime in the Valley can mean only one thing, MUSIKFEST! With hundreds of FREE performances, there’s something for everyone at the ‘fest, which was recently voted the #1 Music Festival in North America by USA Today’s 10 Best Reader’s Choice! Check out our top 5 reasons why MUSIKFEST is the absolute best fest!

    1. On 8/7 indie rock band, Guster will be playing a free show! Ever since their humble beginnings at Tufts University, Guster has always sought to outdo themselves. This past spring founded the eco-friendly Campus Consciousness Tour with buses powered by biodiesel and performances powered by wind power. It’s in this overachieving band’s nature to one-up itself.

    The Revivalists

    2. This year’s festival features 11 headlining acts including Weezer, and The Revivalists!

    3. On 8/11 there will be a magnificent Firework Display like no other!

    4. As you enjoy the ‘fest be sure to check out the various food vendors and eat your way through the ‘fest.

    5. Don’t miss the 16-year-old, Brandon “Taz” Niederaur—a guitar virtuoso who has wowed the audience in Broadway’s “School of Rock”.
