Burning Man is a huge festival that takes place every Labor Day weekend. This is the world's largest interactive art display. It is a place where everyone pitches in and the festival runs all night. Due to Burning Man's location in the Nevada desert, remember to stay hydrated and dress for the hot weather.
Coachella is a huge music festival that starts up in April. The first weekend of the festival is what many people consider the best and to get the full Coachella experience, plan to camp out. Coachella provides food, beverages and Wi-Fi and the organizers of the event recommend getting to stages early for popular concerts. Coachella offers indoor and outdoor concert activities and as with Burning Man, the weather at Coachella is often hot and dry, so stay hydrated with the park's many free drinking water dispensers.Learn more about Art & Literature
