Music Festival
One of the many great things about Michigan is the amount of musical productions it hosts each year.
Summer is a particularly popular time for concerts and festivals; people often like to spend their time outside at venues like DTE Energy Music Theatre listening to their favorite music while enjoying the calm warm weather. There are festivals featuring different types of music in Michigan throughout the summer. Here are some we’re looking forward to.
  • Alpena Blues Festival (Alpena, June 22-23): Many skilled Blues musicians share their talents with the community at the Alpena County Fairgrounds.
  • Electric Forest (Rothbury, June 27-30): In addition to 4 days of electronic music, this festival features top-of-the-line production, performance artists and amazing light shows.
