2014 summer music festivals worth the trip [Pictures]
Just because you missed out on Coachella, Lollapalooza and the other major festivals doesn't mean you can't experience this summer's live music scene. -- Wesley Case, The Baltimore Sun

Notable acts: The Flaming Lips, Dashboard Confessional, Matt & Kim
When: Aug. 16
Where: Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds, 1450 General's Highway, Annapolis
Why: After debuting in 2012 and taking last year off, Silopanna returns with a stellar lineup of national and local artists. While we haven't been able to shake the idea of Flaming Lips leader Wayne Coyne (pictured) walking on top of an Annapolis crowd in a giant ball (Google it), we are also excited by the inclusion of Sun Club, one of Baltimore's most promising young indie-rock bands.
