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.
