Summer Festival Guide: Outside Lands, Warped Tour, EDC And More

Festival season -- that time of year when beer flows freely from makeshift taps into clear plastic cups, clothing is shed and tanlines grow upon us like zippers on Michael Jackson's jackets -- is among us. Each year's summer brings with it more and more choices, so we are here to help make picking which festival to invest a few hundred of your hard-earned dollars on a bit easier. Should you dance with the young'ns at Electric Daisy Carnival or fashion yourself an art car and head to Burning Man? Does indie-shuffling with hipsters at Lollapalooza make more sense than getting a good dose of real hip-hop at Rock the Bells? Or does a Circuit Party offer the best bang for your buck? Take a look at the options below, and, no matter what you decide, remember to wear sunscreen.
