The Essence Festival ended July 2nd, but that is not the end of  Festival season. There are more Music Festivals to come.   If you like music festivals, there are still some very good ones coming up.  If you like Jazz, then you may want to head to Colorado or Rhode Island.  Maybe you are a fan of Reggae.  Then grab your passport and head to Canada.  Cincinnati is your spot for Rhythm & Blues.   Perhaps Funk is your thing and if so you are in luck because Bootsy and Mavis Staples are both in concert this Summer.  Football season is around the corner, but music season is not over yet.  Not by a long shot!  Below is a list of the Upcoming Music Festivals.
