Underwater Music Festival, Florida
Dive Loo Key Reef for a sub-sea concert with a radio playlist streaming the ocean-themed music from the suspended speakers. What’s better? Diving themed costumes and the underwater instruments crafted by the locals.
San Fermin, New Orleans
Instead of being chased by the bulls in Spain, book your air tickets to New Orleans this summer and play “Catch me if you can” by the Big Easy Rollergirls. The good part is, on getting caught, you only get whacked with the foam puddle instead of the deadly horns.
