Miami’s Ultra Music Festival is less than two weeks away and tickets to the EDM-focused event are almost gone.
The traditionally electronic dance music fest is continuing to broadened their lineup for 2014. Along with DJs like Afrojack, Avicii, David Guetta, and Tiesto, rapper M.I.A., MGMT, and the Australian band Cut/Copy are also on the roster.
Keep your eye out this month, Australia, as The Rolling Stones are flying around in their very own Boeing 767 painted with their lips-and-tongue logo. The 767, tail number ZS-DJI, is pretty minimal otherwise (but we bet the interior's anything but!). That's not a tiny private jet, by the way; a Delta 767, for comparison, holds just over 200 passengers.
The band landed in Perth yesterday to being their Australia tour, and today received the news that L'Wren Scott, acclaimed fashion designer and longtime girlfriend of Mick Jagger, had died.
The show must go on, however, and the Stones are all set to take their private jet around the continent for shows in Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Hanging Rock, and even down to Auckland, New Zealand. The Perth Airport Spotter's Blog has a few images of the plane in daylight.

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:

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.
