Just hearing the word “meltdown” makes the heat that has encompassed Seattle this summer feel a little less blistering. Now, all you need is the woods, some mountains, a little water, and of course music, and you’ve got yourself a refreshing weekend.

So you might want to pack up your camping gear and head to Arlington, Washington for the 15th annual  Summer Meltdown. The three-day weekend is chock-full of great music and amazing experiences. Start the day with a rafting trip, a horseback ride, some rock climbing or just a little hiking, then get ready to rock the night away!

Don’t you feel cooler already?
