While live music is the main draw for thousands of these festival-goers, there are also plenty of food truck vendors, Michigan-made vendors and markets, and activities to keep you busy. Lounges, hammock hangouts, grassy knolls, a silent disco, and even a pop-up tattooing event mean there are plenty of ways to make it a memorable Michigan music festival season.
