Go to Summerfest ✓
I have never been to a big music festival and have always talked about how I want to go to Lollapalooza. However, purchasing tickets didn't work out so well this year, so I was recommended to check out Summerfest. Best idea ever. Summerfest had everyone that I truly wanted to see at Lollapalooza and more! The best part, it was less than half the price, and I could go 3 days instead of the 1 day I could afford for Lollapalooza.
The entire set up of the festival was incredible. You could hop from stage to stage, grab any kind of food imaginable, it was right on Lake Michigan, and it was just a downright good time.
The 2nd night that we picked to go back up was the 4th of July. We only went up for this music this time, and we got to see Fitz and the Tantrums and Timeflies! Both were really good! We also enjoyed some ice cream from a stand inside the festival. Cedar Crest Ice Cream was so delicious that I'm not sure the word delicious cuts it. I got Pirates Booty in a waffle cone. It was just a mixture of amazingness (M&Ms, chocolate chips, marshmallows, and I don't even know what else.) But get it if you ever see one of these ice cream parlors.
