This year marks the first time that the long-running festival will expand to three days, and for those lucky enough to attend 1, 2 or 3 shows, you’re going to need a comfy bed to rest your head (and feet). Here are 5 of our best hotels in the surrounding area, that’s sure to make your music festival experience one to remember.

Guests rooms are decorated with eclectic furnishings, neon lighting, and king size beds, so you can catch some zzz’s after a long day and dream of the magical performances you’ve just witnessed.
