Festival Outlook recap: Download Festival, Wanee Festival, Way Out West


    Consequence of Sound‘s Festival Outlook is an online database featuring the latest news, rumors, and ticket information for the world’s many music festivals. Sometimes, though, it’s hard to keep up with everything. So, this is where our weekly recap feature comes in.

    This week brings lineup announcements for UK’s massive Download Festival, Florida’s jam-centric Wanee Festival, and Sweden’s indie-fueled Way Out West festival. In addition, San Francisco’s Noise Pop, Sweden Rock, and Texas’ 35 Denton added to their respective bills.

    And while we have your attention, please be sure to bookmark Festival Outlook and follow us on Twitter. That way, you’ll get more timely updates! And if you see something missing from one of the thousands of pages listed on Festival Outlook, please drop us a line, and we’ll fix it asap. Of course, tips are also welcome!
