The Summer Ends Music Festival in Tempe, Arizona is going to be one of the best festivals of the year. The 4-day festival takes place in September and in one of the coolest college towns in the country.
The festival will take place at Tempe Beach Park, which is just a couple miles away from the party school Arizona State University. Tempe Beach Park has hosted a lot of big festivals and they have always turned out better than expected. The location is really ideal and it is a super fun area. There are a handful of hotels nearby and it is also near the Lightrail, which makes getting around the Valley convenient.
Hozier, Brandon Flowers and The Cold War Kids will kick off the festival on Thursday, September 24th. Brand New, Jimmy Eat World and more will headline Friday’s show. Festivalgoers can check out J. Cole, Slightly Stoppid and other acts on Saturday. But Sunday is when the big acts take the stage. Kanye West, Chance the Rapper and other big name artists will rock Tempe on the last day of the festival.
Of course Arizona is known to get very hot. But the end of September is always a gorgeous time in the state. The festival not only takes place at a prime location, but during the perfect time of year.
Tickets are a little pricey, starting at $54 dollars for each of the first 3 days. Sunday’s tickets go up to $135 dollars though. Also, there will be a number of vendors selling plenty of food, drinks and alcoholic beverages.
So The Summer Ends Music Festival is going to cost you a pretty penny, but who can put a price on having fun at one of the best festivals of the year!
