Channel your Inner Flower Child at a California Music Festival this Summer in your Los Angeles travel trailer rental

Posted on Apr 17, 2017

Early summer is perhaps the best time for a Los Angeles travel trailer rental road trip.  Fewer crowds, beautiful weather, and countless events and celebrations allow for Expedition Motorhomes to help happy campers initiate their road trip of a lifetime across The Golden State each May.  This summer, why not join the fun?  While you are visiting, consider planning a weekend music festival into your itinerary.  California has a storied musical and counter cultural history and, after a weekend spent camping and dancing in beautiful California, you will soon find that this history is very much still alive.  Check out these three festivals held in the early summer that will help you to channel your inner flower child.  

Head into the Desert for Great Music and Positive Energy

Joshua Tree National Park is one of California’s many natural wonders, and twice each year the desert plays host to a music festival like no other.  Held near the entrance of the park, the Joshua Tree Music Festival provides the perfect excuse to visit and explore this awe-inspiring corner of California.  Point your Los Angeles travel trailer rental two hours west for the weekend of May 18 – 21, and soak up this world musical experience featuring all genres of music from every corner of the globe.  There are many other activities and installations for the entire family to experience when the time comes to give your feet a break from dancing.  Visit their website to discover why this celebration is one of our favorites!

A Music Festival for the Young and Young at Heart

The name of this festival, Lightning in a Bottle (LIB), says it all.  This high-energy gathering, held in Bradley, CA from May 24th – 29th this year, boasts an uncontrollable amount of creativity in the form of music and art.  With mostly electronic acts, LIB is a psychedelic event that definitely caters to a late night crowd.  However, the laid-back atmosphere and impressive art installations are enough to impress even the most cynical of electronic music critics.  What’s more, Bradley, CA is conveniently located just off of California’s most popular road trip highway following the beautiful Pacific Coast.  To learn more, visit their site at:

If Wine Country is on your Itinerary, don’t Miss BottleRock 2017

Over Memorial Day weekend, from May 26th – 28th, Napa Valley will play host to perhaps the most complete festival on our list.  BottleRock boasts a very impressive line-up that is sure to have multiple acts to attract and excite any music lover, making the delicious food and drink, impressive art and activities, and breathtaking location icing on the cake.  If you were already planning on heading north to explore wine country in your Los Angeles travel trailer rental, then do yourself a favor and try to squeeze BottleRock into your agenda!
