We’re right in the middle of SXSW, and if you’re lucky enough to be in attendance this year chances are that AUS will be in your plans. We discussed some of our favorite airport eats last year, and the same holds true in 2014—get some ice cream and barbeque before departing town. This year Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is rolling out the welcome mat for visitors yet again, as they’re bringing plenty of live music and other entertainment right into the terminal.

If case you haven't noticed, we've made no bones about our love for Palm Springs. In fact, we've even shared our 27 reasons why we think it's the bomb dignity. Naturally we aren't the only ones enamored with this oasis of retro style in the Californian desert, and it's becoming increasingly obvious that Palm Springs is becoming the place for festivals both new and old, for people of all persuasions.
In fact, spring 2014 will be the hottest season for happenings in the city, and the Palm Springs Board of Tourism shares the six most sizzling events, all in April:

HOLY SMOKES, you guys. The dates have already been announced for Coachella 2014 and ticket sales begin tomorrow! They've timed it perfectly; now is the perfect time to make California desert plans when much of the country is snowed in or blown about by icy winds.
The dates you need to set aside in your iCal are: April 11-13 and April 18-20.
As with Coachella 2013 and 2012, 2014's version will be split into two identical weekends of performances from musicians old and new (Outkast is reuniting!), with a hologram or two thrown in for max viral appeal. The only thing that won't be identical are the attendees, since you have the option of hitting up the first weekend and being surprised, or hitting up the second and being well prepared. Either way, we recommend you start phoning your choice Palm Springs hotel now to inquire about early booking deals.
With 2013 coming to a close it's time to start making your 2014 festival plans now.
Here are five music fests taking place in 2014 that you should already be saving for:
The Governors Ball Music Festival has emerged as New York's best music fest. The three-day event is set to return to Randall's Island with a mix of hip-hop, rock, and indie darlings in June 2014. Past performers have included Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Guns and Roses,Erykah Badu, and Miguel. Signs up for ticket updates at governorsballmusicfestival.com.

It might have one of the worst names in festival history, but it sure has caught on and gathered attention as a pretty big deal in Austin, a city that doesn't take its music lightly. The Fun Fun Fun Fest returns for its 8th year on November 8-10 with a lineup that goes well beyond music to showcase stand-up comedy, alternative sports, and the local food scene.
In addition to big acts like Snoop Dog (Lion), M.I.A., and Slayer, the FFF Fest will feature dozens of musicians as well as comedians, led by Sarah Silverman and Tenacious D. You can see the full lineup here. There will also be some extreme sports on site, including vert ramp skating and biking, wrestling (there's apparently a ring), and the good ole' fashioned Texas favorite, the mechanical bull.

We told you yesterday Justin Timberlake and Jay Z are in Miami tonight to perform their last concert in their Legends of the Summer Stadium Tour. But we just learned about a special, super-secret Justin Timberlake concert being held at midnight at The Fillmore Miami Beach.
Apparently in a partnership between JT and MasterCard, the cool crooner is hosting an "Intimate Priceless Miami Performance" at the stroke of 12, right after his show at the Sun Life Stadium. Woo! Man must have a lot of energy to go back-to-back like that.

Mumford & Sons' Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers Festival Tour is in full swing and, surprisingly, tickets are still available for three upcoming shows.
The band dubs the tour "a music festival that celebrates local people, food and culture, where everyone pitches in and everybody gets something back." For the second year in a row they've spent months selecting unique places, creating venues, building lineups, planning the after-parties, and getting to know the locals.

Summer is winding down and so is the number of upcoming music festivals but there are still a few worth checking out, including the infamous Burning Man festival.
Burning Man, which takes place in the Nevada desert August 26 - September 2, is more of a small city, dubbed Black Rock City, than a traditional music festival with a main stage and a food court. Everything that happens in BRC is thanks to its residents who bring along their music, art projects, and entertainment to share with the larger community.
