Mid-Season Music Festival Update

Music festival season is in full swing! If you haven’t been able to make it out to any music festivals in the last few months, there’s still time. With several great events still coming up all over the world, we wanted to share just a few of the ones we’re most excited about:

Byron Bay, Australia- Splendour in the Grass
With a lineup featuring The Shins, Fun., Smashing Pumpkins and more, Splendour in the Grass takes place from July 27 – 29. Along with delivering spectacular shows, Splendour in the Grass also places great value in hosting an environmentally conscious event, with several green initiatives in place. As part of one initiative, 8,000 fans purchased “Carbon Offset” tickets, allowing more than 2,814 tons of carbon to be offset, which resulted in $85,600 being invested in renewable wind energy generation.

San Francisco, Calif. – Outside Lands
Filling a huge lineup, Outside Lands this year will feature Logitech Ultimate Ears artists like Passion Pit, Portugal. The Man, Geographer, Of Monsters and Men and Allen Stone, alongside several other big names like Metallica, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and Foo Fighters from Aug. 10 – 12. Of Monsters and Men joined Logitech UE to perform at the W Austin Logitech UE NYLON Party at SXSW 2012 earlier this year, and everyone at SX was really excited to see them play – if you missed it, check out the video of the performance on our YouTube channel.

Reading, United Kingdom- Reading
Don’t miss Reading in the U.K. Aug. 24 – 26. Alongside Logitech UE “Artist to Watch” Foster the People, Florence + The Machine, Of Monsters and Men, and Passion Pit, Reading will also feature Paramore, The Cure, Foo Fighters and many more.
