Summertime tunes around the Valley

By: Kristina Haney

The summertime is the time to get outside and enjoy one’s favorite artists. Even if attending a concert indoors, getting out and being active is an important part of the summer.

The biggest festivals, unfortunately, take place during the hottest time of the year. Staying hydrated and protected from the sun is an important part of enjoying the music.

Talking Stick Resort is having comedy and music performances by the pool and in their ballrooms for the summer. Go to a concert and then head inside and play some slots. Quail Run Park is where Warped Tour is being held this year.

First time attendees should get there early to make sure they do not have to park extremely far and get a good space on the hill for viewing.

Here are just a few festivals throughout the summer.
