Weekend's best dance music: Planet of the Drums, Justin Long, King Britt and more

While the biggest EDM event this weekend is Burning Man, if you're staying behind in Colorado, you don't have to feel left out. You can head up to Happy Ass Ranch at Lake George for Freeman Music Festival, a free festival with over twelve hours of music daily and nearly 100 DJs, or you can hit up Pitch a Tent gathering tomorrow afternoon. Or, if you'd rather stay closer to home, Justin Long's at Appaloosa Grill, Planet of the Drums is at Beta, King Britt's at Bar Standard. Whatever your flavor, you can look forward to another full Dance Card this Labor Day weekend. Keep reading for a full rundown of the weekend's best nightlife bets.
