It’s starting to be that time of the year, where the temperature rises and teens flock to crowded venues to enjoy their favorite bands or just spend time with their friends.

Many big-name artists and bands will travel to Bay Area locations to perform, including Tim McGraw, One Direction and Bruno Mars. For those looking for alternative music, huge summer festivals like Outside Lands offer great opportunities for local fans around the bay to attend concerts from multiple bands in one location.

Palo Alto High School junior Andrew Sternfield is excited  for this summer’s concerts.
