The Summer of Michigan Music, part 3: Folk

If Dirt Fest is too loud and Rothbury is too enlightening, then Blissfest has you covered. Way up in northern Michigan in the beautiful setting of Harbor Springs, Blissfest will feature over 30 acts representing American Roots Music ("Folk," for those who like their genre names short) including mid-state crowd favorites Steppin' In It and Daisy Mae. Behind the music, there'll be arts and crafts displays, healing arts demonstrations, non-profit and activist booths, and services from local guitar shops, bike shops, and farmers.

Grab a sleeping bag and tent and point your carpool north—and don't forget the organic bug spray. Michigan deer flies (a.k.a. horse flies in the lower 47) become the state bird in summer.
