If you’re counting down to South by Southwest (6 days!) or are attending one of the other many amazing music fests this summer, you should check out our music fest swimwear suggestions because a bathing suit is sometimes the best thing to wear in the sweltering heat amid the throngs of other rocking fans.

Rumored to be one of the best all-around summer festivals for 2010, Coachella is great for first time festival goers. Both major labels and the indies love Coachella. New things for this year include: Car Camping and In and Outs (which means you can leave and return for the entire three days!) Great tip: If you return 10 empty plastic water bottles you find laying around the camping site, you can redeem them for one fresh bottle of water!
