We’re two weeks out from the first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which truly kicks off festival season in Southern California.

This year is going to be a busy one. We’ve got lots of fun things planned to share with Coachella, Stagecoach, Desert Hearts, BeachLife, Cruel World and Just Like Heaven all happening in the next two months.

And this week, we marked our calendar for even more new festivals on the calendar, but they feature some old friends.
