The long-running High Sierra Music Festival holds its 30th anniversary festivities with another stellar lineup coming to Quincy, California.

The Eastern region also provides many Fourth Of July Weekend music festival options. Celebrating its 10th year, The Peach Music Festival returns to Scranton, Pennsylvania with a delightfully jam-oriented lineup.

Those are just a few of the many Fourth Of July Weekend music festivals taking place in 2022. Get your red, white and blue colored gear ready and Go See Live Music at a festival happening this Fourth Of July Weekend!
