Welcome to the 2022 Summer Music Festivals. Part Two

Here we go…
When the pandemic hit at the beginning of 2019 anything that qualified as a gathering took the brunt of the hit.
Restaurants, concerts, sports, schools, music tours, group travel, etc!
Festivals of all descriptions were immediately shut down and artists went home and stayed home.
So, here we are two years later and this summer the music festivals have been fully booked by artists who can’t wait to get on the road and on stage. To be met by audiences and music fans who truly missed the live music experience.
We’ll touch on four music festivals but they do represent all festivals, big and small. Please find one near you and support the festival and the artists.
