New York, New York
Their tagline is "30 low-bit underground bands in three nights" at The Gramercy Theatre in New York. I only checked on one night's tickets, but I am assuming they are within the range of $25 per night. I also haven't really heard of any of these bands, but if you're into the low-fi scene, I'm sure you know them:
DAYS & NIGHTS FESTIVAL
Big Sur, California
As part of Philip Glass' Days and Nights festival, there will be an event, taking place June 25, 2012, to benefit the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur to cover a massive upgrade project. The event will feature Philip Glass & Joanna Newsom with Tim Fain at The Warfield Theatre in San Francisco. Pricing for this event is expensive, at $62 for bleednose to $140 for closer to the stage.

PEACE & LOVE FESTIVAL
June 26-30, 2012
This is Sweden's largest music festival, in its 14th year. I couldn't figure out how much it is, but for five days it costs 1760,00 kr. I don't need a price conversation to tell me that it's pretty pricey.
The lineup is too numerous to list, but here are the bigger acts. Expect to see lots of Swedish bands, including our favorite Amanda Mair.
