Levitate Music and Arts Festival: New Summer Traditions

Levitate Music and Arts Festival: New Summer Traditions

Music lovers come to be at all stages of life as do traditions. Some traditions come to you as a very young child passed down from the adults in your life, and others you start yourself as you get older. For concert goers, music festivals quickly become traditions. Friends and family gather at the same spot each year to see one another and take in the music as well as the whole scene of a give festival. In New England we have access to so many music festivals of all sorts. Levitate Music and Arts Festival was new to me last year, and I quickly became a fan. It is a short drive from Boston and a fun-filled weekend of art, music, food and more. Levitate Music Festival is a great place to meet up with friends, have a parent’s weekend away, or gather the whole family for a summer weekend out. Last year, Levitate celebrated their 10th anniversary, you can read more about the festival here with photos and details from last summer. For those of you who are ready to get in on this year’s Levitate Music Festival, here is what you need to know.


Levitate Music and Arts Festival is held at the Marshfield fairgrounds just south of Boston. It is a three day affair July 5th through 7th. There are early bird, three day, individual day and children’s ticket options which can be purchased here. The festival opens at noon every day with music on three stages rotating throughout the weekend and headliner usually plays through around 10 p.m. Pick your favourite line up and attend a full day or make it a mini vacation and enjoy the whole weekend. On paper a full day of music seems like a lot, but the time flies. A music festival is an alternate universe of sorts. If you are a festival-goer you know, and if not, once you go you’ll understand. Tickets start at $40 for kids’ individual days and $129 for early bird adult individual days.

Now, for the most important information, here are the lineups for each day.
