Welcome to Okayplayer’s Top 16 Summer Festivals of 2013. It’s just about summa summa summatime and for us, the music-obsessed, that means it’s time to scrape together some cash and hit up as many festivals as possible! Acts like Wu-Tang Clan and Kendrick Lamar are going to be hard to miss, hitting the main stage and rocking many a crowd from New York to Manchester, TN. On the other hand, Shuggie OtisPrince, and D’angelo are a few artists making rare, one off appearances.
