17 Music Acts On The Best Festivals They've Ever Been To

From the corporate behemoths to obscure curiosities

For touring artists, the summer festival season can be a breather from the lonely and sometimes isolating grind of hopping between traditional music venues.

With their communal vibe and certain brand of magic, music festivals turn performers into fans. With that in mind, we asked 17 musicians to tell us which music festival, from Coachella to Babes Ride Out, they like best.
