    Curated Festivals and the Changing Face of Summer Entertainment

    While most Texans are spending their Friday counting down to ACL or speculating about the Fun Fun Fun Fest line up, I find myself thinking about a festival north of our fair state.

    Other "Coachella" Festivals We'd Like To See

    So, Coachella tickets sold out a few weeks ago. Evidently, the lineup is killer, accommodating to most tastes. Last year, the festival sold out in a week. This year, even with two weekends available, tickets sold out within a couple of hours. Don't have tickets to the show? Don't fret! What if ... More >>
