For its ninth musical festival, the now legendary jam act creates a fan experience like no other at Watkins Glen.

But here’s some fresh news you may not have heard: Phish members’ projections from 23 years ago manifest for weekend long phestival, creating a community and experience like no other.

Review: Spectacular sets from Arcade Fire and Pavement top Montreal music festival.

Montreal’s Osheaga Festival is so quintessentially Canadian. 

The crowds are respectful and polite, the surroundings are calm and peaceful, and the lineup is filled with Canadian musicians.

Staged in Parc Jean-Drapeau on Saint Helen's Island, the festival effectively mixes the urban and natural world. I was only able to attend one day (Saturday) of the two-day weekend festival, but the homeyness and simple charm of Osheaga made the trek up north well worth it

Whether you're a newbie or seasoned concert-goer, The Disco Biscuits host a music festival like no other.

Five words to describe Camp Bisco: Vibrant, serene, wild, bumping and unique.

I've been to a lot of shows — indoor and outdoor — in cities and in the middle of nowhere. Last year I was even able to attend my first festival with ATP New York, a unique experience in its own right where I learned about navigating multiple stages and unique side shows.

Hunting for the best chocolatier at London's annual Chocolate Festival

There are three things that I consider myself an expert on: acclimating myself to new cultures, shoes, and chocolate.

This past weekend marked the second annual Chocolate Festival in Central London. For three whole days, it was non-stop chocolate in London-town.
