When you think of music festivals, you may not immediately think "family-friendly." But these kiddos and their parents are out to change that!
Tons of moms and dads have their offspring tag along with them to some of the biggest festivals in the country - from the Governor's Ball in New York to Coachella in California.
On Friday, Slate featured the work of Zipporah Lomax, a photographer who's focused on children at the annual Burning Man Festival. His photos showed off kids dressed to the nines, hanging out, and dancing to the tunes.

Of course, bringing kids to music festivals can be controversial.
In 2010, the Guardian published an op-ed that said, "taking young children to festivals is the cruel and selfish indulgence of parents not willing to make sacrifices."
"The festival experience is, when you are two or three years old, the same as any other experience – fascinating for about 30 seconds. Then you're hungry. Or cold. Or tired. Or sticking your teeny little fingers into something you shouldn't be," Rebecca Wearn wrote.
She claims that children can not properly appreciate music festivals, and parents who drag them along are only thinking of themselves.
While some say that kids have no interest in music festivals, others say that children can kill the vibe for older attendees.
BroBible.com published a strongly worded open letter to parents who decide to bring their kids to festivals.
"I don’t want to be around your kid while rolling face, which is why I don’t show up to his third birthday party with Molly hitting slopes harder than Sonny Bono," Eric Armas wrote.
Still, lots of parents seem to believe that their kids are capable of enjoying the live music, so why should they be left out of the fun?
