It's all you'll need to know to have an awesome time at Coachella this year. 

If you're heading down under instead for some jam bands at the Byron Bay Bluesfest, be sure to utilize our guide. We teamed up with the AU Review to give you an authentic Australian take on the best spots to check out and the best ways to get to and around Byron Bay.

And finally, before you hit New Orleans this April, you must check out our Jazz Fest 2014 Guide. It'll show you the best spots to hang out or crash in NoLa, as well as the full details for this wide genre-spanning music festival.
