Here’s a look at 7 great summer concert festivals that’d be perfect for some El Yucateco®:

  • Louis Armstrong’s Wonderful World – Taking place on Saturday, July 8 at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in New York, Louis Armstrong’s Wonderful World is an annual festival that pays tribute to the great trumpeter. This year’s musical lineup was curated by a major television bandleader while its culinary offerings include local food vendors from Queens.
  • Music Tastes Good 2017 – In California on September 30 and October 1, the Music Tastes Good festival will be hosted in Downtown Long Beach’s beautiful Marina Green Park. Beyond its world-class headlining musicians, Music Tastes Good features a “Taste Tent” helmed by top chefs from both Southern California and the Bayou; this is being called a “Port-to-Port” experience. Undoubtedly a perfect fit for some of the XXX Hot Kutbil-ik blend of El Yucateco®; after all, it’s full of habaneros handpicked from the brand’s own fields.

  • The Governors Ball Music Festival – In just a few weeks — June 2nd through 4th, to be exact — Governors Ball returns to Randall’s Island Park in New York. In addition to its arena and theater-level artists playing on its stages, there will be an extensive food area curated by The Infatuation. Some of that El Yucateco® would work well at The Nugget Spot or the Kimchi Taco Truck.
  • The Austin City Limits Music Festival – SXSW is not the only concert gathering for Austin, and the Austin City Limits Music Festival promises to deliver with this year’s run. From October 6th through 8th and October 13th through 15th, ACL will bring together top names from the rock, pop, hip-hop and electronic worlds. Its Platinum Experience promises “5-star comfort,” as inclusive of “gourmet fare.”
  • Monterey International Pop Festival 50 – The Monterey International Pop Festival first appeared 50 years ago in 1967, as documented in a famous documentary. The 2017 edition will happen at the Monterey County Fairfounds in the festival’s namesake city. The lineup — curated by Another Planet Entertainment and Goldenvoice — features a few artists who were around 1960s San Francisco, but altogether keeps the focus on musicianship and laid-back vibes.
