A sure sign of Summer is that it's Festival time and they are all starting to be announced.

It started with the Granddady of all the Festivals, Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH, which was by the SOLD OUT, there are certainly others that are to be announced very soon.

There is Carolina Rebellion, Rocklahoma and the one closet to us the River City Rockfest in San Antonio, TX

All these festivals have amazing lineups and for the money you can't go wrong. there are people that this is their one big event they go to every year.

I personally have a love/hate relationship with festivals, on one hand I can see a ton of great bands on the main stage but I always feel bad for the bands that aren't and never get the exposure they need and in some cases they cost the band to play.

So what are your thoughts on festivals?
