Got plans for Memorial Day Weekend yet? Well, now you do. This year's 4 day Sasquatch! Music Festival is slated to run from May 24th to 27th at The Gorge in the basalt cliffs above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA.
The musical lineup features more than 100 bands including Mumford & Sons, The Postal Service, Vampire Weekend, Arctic Monkeys, Cake, Imagine Dragons, Bloc Party and Elvis Costello, while Nick Offerman, Jenny Slate, Jon Daly, and Joe Mande will be among the performers gracing the comedy stage.
Just as we were thinking that private bedrooms in a Boeing 747-8 was the epitome of jet set awesomeness, the masters of cool from decades ago put us in check. We're talking about the bands of the 1970s who took private jet travel to (literal) new heights, adding shag carpeting, love lounges andummfaux fireplaces to their airplane interiors.
Flavorwire recently featured 17 musicians and their private jets, but we couldn't help focusing in on Led Zeppelin. Who wants to bet that smoking was allowed onboard, even if the fireplace was just for show?

It seemed like a good idea at the timetake a Boeing 777 to 7 gigs over 7 days and bring a bunch of journalists along to cover it allbut it turns out Rihanna's Unapologetic tour had a lot to apologize for in the end.
Before embarking on the private Delta 777, Rihanna told the 150 passengers, "Ya'll gon' either enjoy it or fucking hate me!" and, unfortunately, for most it's now the latter.
The tour kicked off on Nov. 14 in Mexico City, followed by stops in Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London, and finally NYC. Things got off to a strong start with Rihanna granting interviews, pouring champagne and playing her new album, but it was all downhill from there.

Perched on a hill, stuck out on Britain's most southwesterly peninsula, in plain sight of Arthur's fortress island Tintagel, you find the tiny Cornish church of St Endelienta, home — for three weeks a year — to the St Endellion festivals of music at eastertime and in the summer.
It's our fifth year returning to this idyllic, windswept hamlet with a couple hundred musical co-conspirators — all of whom pay their way to come down to Cornwall to play or sing for the love of it — and we can't imagine life without the festivals. One of us calls Endellion his "musical centre of gravity", and every particle (and nearly every holiday cottage) for miles around is swept up into a maelstrom of musicmaking.

Whoa. Okay it's official. The live music festival Coachella has jumped the shark so hard it's landed in the deep end of the ocean.
Just yesterday, Coachella promoters Goldenvoice announced that they'd be packing up the popular desert-held music event and adding some waterby theming two cruises after it. The S.S. Coachella will set sail for two consecutive weekends during the notoriously slow weeks of the year for cruisingthose right before the Christmas holiday. Brilliant timing if you're a cruise line looking to make a buck, horrible timing for attendees, who will likely have to chose between taking work time off for S.S. Coachella or heading home for the holidays.
And it won't be cheap; no camping or crashing on a stranger's couch possible on this ship. The 2,886-guest Celebrity Cruises Celebrity Silhouette is all staterooms and suites, with packages starting from $500 per person and maxing out around $2,000 per person (of their published prices, "email to inquire" for pricier suites). Remember those amounts do not include booze, soda, taxes & gratuities, shore excursions or travel to and from Fort Lauderdale.
