If you want to see live music this summer, you won't have to travel more than a few hours to catch performances from bands of all genres.
The Elkhart Jazz Festival is the first festival in Elkhart County to kick off the summer, but there are a number of other summer music festivals in Indiana and other surrounding states that are worth making the drive out to in the coming months.
One of the biggest highlights of 2014's summer concert circuit is the reunion of Grammy award-winning rap group OutKast, known for songs such as 'Hey Ya!' and 'Ms. Jackson'. OutKast will be performing at Chicago's Lollapalooza music festival in August, which announced their concert line-up on Wednesday morning, March 26. The band parted ways in 2006 to focus on solo endeavors, according to Billboard.
