There might be some chill in the air (waving fists in the air at old mean Hurricane Irene), but summer festival season is not over yet. Whether you're going to Seattle or not, check out this year's impressive Bumbershoot lineup (Daryl Hall & John Oates anyone?). Update your music collection (did we say it's free?), go back to school, and impress your friends with all that was hot at this year's festival.
