2013 Music Festival Guide and Tickets Available at

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwire - Mar 1, 2013) - This year's music festival season is seeing plenty of changes compared to last year, as shown in the annual guide compiled by

The most noticeable difference is the expansion of multi-weekend festivals, a trend largely started last year. Five festivals this year will span two weekends, including the Rock in Rio festival in September.

The season will also see the return of two festivals that have been off the radar in recent years. In April, Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival will run from the 12th to the 13th. The triennial event was last held in 2010. The following month, May 18-19, the Skate and Surf Festival will make its first appearance since 2004.

Crossroads is currently leading in ticket sales among all festivals for 2012; it was the fourth highest-selling festival at in 2010. Its current standing may change later in the season, following the announcement of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival's lineup. In 2012, the hard rock and metal touring event was the top seller among all festivals.
