There’s nothing quite like singing and dancing to your favorite performers day and night. Music festivals bring tons of acts to one venue, often in large outdoor spaces. Add some convenience to your music festival experience by traveling and staying in your RV during these multi-day concerts. If you love live music, RV Trader has put together a list of five upcoming 2022 music festivals where you can RV/camp to help you plan your next getaway.
April 15–17 and 22–24, Indio, California
Coachella is a music and arts festival that takes place over two weekends in California’s Colorado Desert. This year’s headliners include Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, and Kanye West.
While Coachella does allow on-site car or van camping, motorhomes and other RVs with a shower, sink, toilet, or stove inside or attached are not permitted on the grounds. Only passenger cars, trucks, and vans are allowed. Fortunately, the Coachella Valley has a number of RV parks and campgrounds within 10 miles of the festival.
Coachella also offers on-site tent camping on a large, grassy field that’s free of vehicle traffic, as well as luxury camping options.
2. Electric Daisy Carnival
May 20–22, Las Vegas, Nevada
Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) is the largest electronic dance music festival in North America. The flagship event is held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and will feature more than 300 house, techno, hip hop, and EDM performers and DJs over the weekend.
EDC offers four-night camping passes for tents and RVs, which includes power hookups, water refills and pump-outs for an extra fee. The festival can accommodate Class A, Class B, and Class C motorhomes, ranging from 19–45 feet.
3. Hangout Music Fest
May 20–22, Gulf Shores, Alabama
Hangout Music Festival is a three-day music festival held on the sandy beaches of Alabama’s Gulf Coast. Post Malone, Fall Out Boy, Doja Cat, Tame Impala, and Megan Thee Stallion are set to headline the festival.
While there aren’t camping options available on the beaches where performances will take place, the Gulf Shores’ seven-mile-long island does have accommodations for RVs and campers. In fact, Gulf State Park Campground is on Hangout Music Festival’s shuttle route for convenient pick up and drop off.
4. Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival
June 16–19, Manchester, Tennessee
Bonnaroo, which means “good stuff” in Creole slang, is a four-day festival that takes place on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee. This year’s festival will feature performances by J. Cole, The Chicks, 21 Savage, Stevie Nicks, Machine Gun Kelly, and Roddy Rich.
For non-stop fun at Bonnaroo, book one of the camping experiences. The festival boasts both VIP and Platinum Campgrounds, featuring private amenities, convenient access to the performance areas, and more.
Bonnaroo also offers parking accommodations for Class A, Class B, or Class C motorhomes, along with fifth wheels or other towable campers. VIP accommodations for RV camping grant access to premiere parking and power hookups, while Premiere pass holders also have water and waste hookups.
5. Firefly Music Festival
Sept. 22–25, Dover, Delaware
Firefly Music Festival will bring headliners, including Halsey, My Chemical Romance, Green Day, and Dua Lipa, to The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway. Tent camping, glamping, and RV camping are welcome at different sites across the 105-acre venue.
The Front Row RV Camping pass lets you park your camper right across from the festival entrance. You can upgrade to the Infield RV Camping pass for access to power, water, and waste hookups. Both of these experiences can accommodate an RV in a 25-by-45-foot parking spot, as well as a tow vehicle.
These five upcoming 2022 music festivals feature popular performers from an array of genres. You might even be tempted to hop in your RV and roadtrip to all of them! While all music festivals can’t accommodate motorhomes and travel trailers, these venues are typically located near campgrounds and RV parks, putting you close to all the action.
