About Festivals in Massachusetts

Festivals in Massachusetts offer many opportunities for music lovers to see their favorite performers and hear their preferred styles. Massachusetts music festivals each season, are eclectic and range from classical performances to indie pop stage acts. The Greenfield Community College Music Festival is a large week-long event in western Massachusetts that is jazz and salsa-pop oriented. It has been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine and USA Today. A few clicks east in Barre, MA is the Disc Jam Music Festival providing a mature atmosphere with acts presented by Cabinet, Dangermuffin, Bela's Bartok and much more.

For Massachusetts events that the whole family can enjoy, the Solid Sound Festival in North Adams. All genres, from big brass bands, to African ethnic music is presented. There is an array of art and food vendors displaying unique items in the shadow of world class music. Of course, no music festival tour would be complete without a stop in jolly old Boston. The Boston Calling happens in late Spring. It is held in the Boston City Plaza, and hosts music groups like The Ben Harper Band, The Pixies, and an audience adventure through television and radio soundtracks. It's also common for a special appearance by the Pops, or the Boston Symphony to add an extra element of sophistication and audience appeal.
