Make sure to follow The Festival Guy’s adventures this weekend as he heads deep into a blizzard at the Snow Ball Festival. With over a foot of snow forecast for Saturday, the powder during the day is going to be as good as the bumping tunes at night.

Hangout Fest amps up the star power with the addition of festival rarity Stevie Wonder. They also announced Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Imagine Dragons, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Baauer aka The Harlem Shake dude.

Most Unique Sets of the Summer? 
Wilco is going to perform an “all request set” at the Solid Sound Festival. Over at the Treefort Festival, Built to Spill is doing a special set on the final night of just covers. A ten spot to whoever punches out the dude that yells “Freeeeeebird!”
