I love a good infographic. They simultaneously inform me by the content and entertain me by the graphics, a real win/win scenario. Sadly, infographics are usually reserved for such mundane topics as gentrification, government spending, and census data.

Leave it to the internet to change that.

Rukkus, a second-hand ticketing dispensing website, released an incredibly informative infographic, outlining nearly everything you’d need to know heading into the summer music festival season.

For instance:

  • Strand of Oaks leads the way with eight festival appearances this summer.
  • Bonnaroo has doubled the amount of acts that perform at their festival from when they started, going from 47 acts in 2002 to 98 in 2015.
  • In 4500 BC, ancient Egyptians held religious music festivals. (No information is available on their bag policy, but I imagine it was fairly lax.)
  • Austin City Limits crushed the competition in terms of attendance in 2014, drawing over 300,000 people. Lollapalooza came in second with nearly 250,000 people.
