With electronic music's growing popularity, the summer fests might merge into one big party anyway. "I want to see the lines blur between what is considered 'electronic' and what's considered 'rock,' 'pop,' or 'metal,' " says Kirkpatrick, "so that festivals can just have amazing artists and the audience can get an eclectic mix, rather than trying to make this festival for one style, and the other for that style."

If rock lasts that long.
