Do You Connect with Bands You Hear at Festivals?

Coachella, officially the biggest music festival in the country, is just a couple of weeks away. It's gotten so big that organizers decided to do the festival two weekends in a row this year. The first will take place on April 13-15 and the second on April 20-22, and if all goes well, both weekends will feature roughly the same lineup -- Radiohead, The Black Keys, Dr. Dre, Bon Iver, At the Drive-In, and tons more.

But it's certainly not the only festival in town. Bonnaroo will go off in June, and Lollapalooza lands in early August. It's not always easy to find the perfect lineup within a reasonable distance, but if you keep your eyes peeled there's bound to be a festival out there that can whet your musical appetite. And if you simply can't make it, digital streaming is becoming more widely available, so you can witness the magic on your own terms, in your own living room.

When you have a moment, make sure to take our 10-question music festival Quick Poll and fill us in on your festival-going preferences. We'd love to hear from you!

    Being in a band myself, we could connect with other bands backstage, and have serious conversations with them, get to know them and exchange ideas & info with each other. A couple festivals also had open mic jam sessions afterwards, where some of the festival performers could get together and jam with each other in a laid back bar setting. That was quite a bit of fun.

    Bands that don't connect with fans put themselves at a huge disadvantage in relation to marketing
