Live performances are only one aspect of a typical music festival. There are often many options of additional activities such as lawn games, photo booths and a wide selection of delicious foods. Many music festivals are annual and some are organized as for-profit while others are benefits for specific causes. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the "World’s Largest Music Festival" is Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s Summerfest, which is an 11 day event that has held that title since 1999.
