Where to Dance to Electronica While Downing Sriracha

© Huy Fong Foods

I’m a huge sucker for those pictures of different animals being friends: the lion and the dachshund; the chimp and the tiger cubs; the puppy and the Clydesdale in the heart-tugging Super Bowl commercial.

It’s not the same thing, but I’m also a fan of those festivals that bring together great music and don’t-miss food. Here are three notable upcoming ones.

Electronic Sriracha Festival; San Jose, CA, August 30
Food: There will be 40 food trucks preparing more than 100 Sriracha-infused dishes. There will also be four bars in action. 
Music: All electronic, featuring Thee-O, John Beaver, Aaron Axelsen, Dead Funk and other Bay Area artists.
Bonus: With tickets priced at only $20 and most dishes coming in at $6 or less, this is definitely one of the most affordable food and music festivals out there. Plus it’s one day from noon till 8 p.m., so it’s a great option for anyone who is hot sauce–crazed and doesn’t want a full weekend commitment. 

Music City Food & Wine; Nashville, September 20-21
Chefs: Andrew Zimmern, Michael Symon, Tyler Florence, Tim Love, Sean Brock, Aarón Sánchez, Ashley Christensen, Morimoto and many more.
Musicians: It’s mostly TBA, but Trisha Yearwood will be there, and the lineup for Harvest Night—which spotlights live music and food—will be curated by Kings of Leon, so you know it will be good.
Bonus: There will be more than 40 wine, beer and spirits vendors. Full disclosure: This festival is sponsored by Food & Wine, where I work (so the chef lineup is especially awesome). 

Austin City Limits; Austin, October 3-5 & 10-12
Food: Woodshed Smokehouse, La Condesa, Mighty Bird, Noble Sandwich Co., Second Bar + Kitchen, plus others.
Musicians: Pearl Jam, Eminem, the Avett Brothers, Chromeo, Lana del Rey, Iggy Azalea, Beck and more.
Bonus: There are plenty of free activities for kids; anyone under 10 gets in free with a ticket-holding adult.
