Coolest Rock Festivals Worth Traveling for in 2015

Work hard, play hard, is more than just an old adage. For those hard working successful business owners who have a great staff in place, playtime can be almost anytime. The largest percentage of the population relies on precious vacation time-off to escape for some much needed R&R. If flying off to a tropical Pacific island, and resting quietly on the beach is your idea of fun? It sounds great, but it’s not exactly playing hard. If you want to get more fun out of your vacation time, and you enjoy live music, FestPop has just the ticket. And we mean it literally!

Most of the Coolest Rock Festivals of 2015, offer awesome travel locations, with available concert packages that include airfare, hotel accommodations, concert tickets, and meet-the-band opportunities. And yes, you can still relax on the beach or by the pool, if the mood strikes you.
