Labor Day 2018 is about to come.

And the national holiday will still be celebrated on the first Monday in September, namely September 3, 2018.

It is known to all, people have gathered for better working conditions or celebrations on Labor Day for over 130 years.

Early in 1882, the first Labor Day was celebrated in New York City.

But it has not been the three-day holiday until 1884.

After that, Congress passed an act in 1894, which made the day as an important national holiday.

Since then, workers have viewed the day as a chance to organize activities for their respite.


For many, Labor Day weekend 2018 is the last hurrah before the summer ends. 

That day, people should plunge themselves into all kinds of celebrating events: 

Parades, parties, picnics, potlucks, BBQs, movies and so on.

But for some, it would be a pity if they blew their chances by spending the three-day weekend without enjoying music or the Labor Day music festivals.

As a holiday to celebrate the social and economic contributions of American workers, how can the Labor Day 2018 go by without music?

So, let’s have a look at the music or festivals you should never miss on Labor Day weekend 2018.
