American music festivals are becoming all the rage for young Americans and as they get bigger each year, so does their grandness. While EDM festivals have made a historic rise in America, they still do not reign king.
As 2015 continues to kick off with a bang, the statistics from last years festivals are just now rolling in. Between the top 5 music festivals in America, a total of $183 million worth of ticket sales were reported for 2014.
