The summer music season in Indiana is a season that is not to be missed. It matters not what your taste in music is, because you’ll find a festival celebration that will suit your fancy. Here are some of the most popular music fests happening in Indiana during the summer. With all genres of music, from country to indie, you are sure to find at least a couple of festivals you won’t want to miss.

Fort Wayne, Indiana hosts the popular Three Rivers Festival also in July. Head downtown for all the activities, everything from a two-hour parade to games for the family and artists doing their creative work right in front of you.

Then with river breezes in your hair, you can enjoy the downtown midway with lots of food and music. Just about everything except the refreshments and rides are free! On the last day be sure to catch the firework finale.
