Coachella and Bonnaroo are already behind us, but the music festivals keep coming all summer. Artist-founded fests aren’t a new concept, but this year everyone from 30 Seconds to Mars to Nile Rodgers is getting in on the act. Before the parties, take a closer look at what to expect from eight festivals, founded by the artists themselves.

Founded by: Thirty Seconds to Mars
About the festival: The Jared Leto-fronted group wanted to do something fun and different for its audience, and what better to do so than to host a musical summer camping trip?

Why you should go: The summer wilderness retreat will offer two performances from Thirty Seconds to Mars, along with hiking, climbing, yoga, cooking classes, raising the flag, campfire sing-alongs, and, of course, s’mores. The band has yet to announce which other artists will join them for the Southern California festival, but have said DJ sets will accompany their sets. Even more fun—those working the festival are referred to as Camp Counselors.
Dates: Aug. 22-24
Ticket info: Day passes start at $399, with full weekend packages beginning at $799. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 19 on the Camp Mars website.
