1. Coachella In California
This is a three whole-day music festival held in the month of April. The story behind this extravagant music and festival is so classy & interesting that it made history. ‘Pearl Jam’ the biggest and hottest American rock band is the reason behind Coachella. Nearly 25,000 people watched Pearl Jam play on November 5, 1993, at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. The venue was chosen since the band declined to perform in Los Angeles due to a disagreement with ‘Ticketmaster’ about service fees associated with ticket transactions.
This one performance created such a big ruckus now that the city celebrates it every year. All of our favorite artists have performed there including Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Justin Timberlake, and our evergreen fav Beyonce.

2. New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival
This Jazzfest is falling between April and May this year 2023. New Orleans Jazzfest was first held in 1970 by George Wien. Wein’s plan was simple: he envisioned a sizable daytime fair with various divisions that would include a variety of locally created music genres, local food booths, arts and crafts, along with an all-encompassing nighttime music festival.
Wein believed no other city could host this festival because only New Orleans has America’s most rich musical heritage. The first time when festivals on the land of New Orleans were held only 350 people attended them. But that number has doubled by hundreds and thousands now.
