If you live near the Chicago area, or even better, two hours south in Champaign-Urbana, you best get your tickets for the Pygmalion Festival, beginning September 22nd. We love the Pygmalion because it's like Coachella and SXSW combined - there's big named bands and there's emerging artists, all in the same place. Check out the festival's schedule here and buy your passes here.
