It seems like forever since we went to a concert or a music festival. The COVID-19 pandemic replaced personal concerts with virtual jam sessions and drive-in shows, but the time has finally come: music festivals are back.

With all Americans 12 and older now eligible for a vaccine, COVID-19 cases in all 50 states, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s mask guidelines loosening the masks, the live music industry is coming back to life.

Lollapalooza will be the country’s first major multi-genre music festival in 15 dismal months and the largest, expected to host 100,000 fans a day in Chicago by the end of July.

And it’s not the only music festival on the calendar. Here is a breakdown of the upcoming music festivals:
