Music lovers, sun-chasers and those in need of a three-day getaway make their way to Indio, California for festival season’s most popular event. AC/DC, Jack White and Drake will headline this year’s hotly anticipated desert fest, which also welcomes a noteworthy lineup of indie acts on the ascent.
It’s time for spring’s seven-day festival, which means it’s the season to set the Seder table with Manischewitz, Matzo and Maror, as we commemorate our ancestors who found their freedom. Our sweet-tooth friends can add some dessert to the mix with a special menu of kosher treats, including macaroons, flourless cake or caramel matzo crunch! L’chaim!
TOYOTA GRAND PRIX OF LONG BEACH
Head on over to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, the beachside city’s biggest weekend of the year. More than 175,000 spectators will fill the grandstands to take in seven turbo-charged races over three consecutive weekends, from the IndyCar Series street course to a 10-lap Pro/Celebrity Race for charity. The event, which started in 1975 as a Formula 5000 race, is the longest-running major “street” race held in North America. A lifestyle expo and two concerts, including the Saturday Rock-N-Roar Concert starring Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe, round out the weekend.
