The music industry is in a constant state of change, and it’s easy to forget about the past. With the internet and ever evolving mobile and web technology, it’s become effortless for someone to introduce a friend to new music. All it takes is a simple share, email or click to the cloud. Nowadays, no face to face exchange ever needs to even happen. Digital is a beautiful thing, but there is something to be said for the way “music used to be”.
The bad news: as summer gradually slips away, so have music festivals. The good news: we have photos and videos to reminisce on the great times and keep the memories alive for years to come. So join us as we take a stroll down memory lane with the top 14 festival moments of 2014.

Live Nation has nearly 150 venues in its portfolio, but only one comes with national historic recognition. Just beyond a bustling Los Angeles street corner sits the Wiltern Theater – a former movie house built at the onset of the Great Depression.
