With the announcement of the Bonnaroo lineup today, almost all of the major American festivals have released their lineups for 2016 (Lollapalooza and ACL are the two big holdouts of the year so far). And because almost all of the lineups have finally arrived, we finally have a broader view of what the 2016 festival season is going to look like: who are the biggest headliners, who are the bands that are playing every festival, who are the midcard snags that make nearly an entire festival worthwhile. And if you're on the fence about heading out to a festival this year (or maybe you've never been to one before and you're wondering if this year should be the year you make the dive), dig into this Spotify mixtape we threw together of our favorite acts hitting the festival circuit this year. We're pretty sure you'll find something to convince you. From headliners like The Killers and LCD Soundsystem to mid-card standouts like Chris Stapleton and Miguel to hidden gems like Bully and Moon Taxi, there's something for everybody this summer.
