  • Led Zeppelin: No
  • ABBA: No
  • Pink Floyd: No, though they did release a new album last year.
  • Queen: Yes, with Adam Lambert.
  • Oasis: No
  • 'NSync: No, but they had a performance at 2013 MTV VMAs.
  • Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince: No, but they had a one-off reunion on a 2013 episode of the Graham Norton Show in the UK.
  • Nirvana: No, but some members performed during the band's 2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction.

Have you ever wanted to attend a music festival, perhaps in order to see what all the hubbub is about? Maybe you've been considering it, but just don't know which festivals play which kind of music, or which festivals are near you? Or maybe you want to hear a lot of acts perform for a good value (and festivals usually do provide a pretty good value for the price)? Then we have you covered with our Music Festivals Guide.

Newly re-launched, the guide now provides two ways to find a festival: by genre or by date. So you can find out, for example, that the Electric Zoo Festival is an EDM festival, and that it is scheduled for September 4-6. Or that country fans living in Louisiana will be right near Bayou Country Superfest when it takes place from May 23-24. The page also has links to some handy resources, such as our post on tips for surviving a festival and Top Music Festivals of 2015.

Start your search for a festival to attend this summer by visiting the Music Festivals Guide page.
