Festival season is well under way. With the first weekend of Coachella taking place last weekend and the second coming in just a few days, the excitement for future festivals set for this year, has begun! Of course the array of stylish celebs attending Coachella had us taking mental notes of what is in this festival season, and maybe even led you to begin shopping. They do say there’s nothing like the present. Whether you’re into rock ‘n’ roll or alternative music we have a festival for everyone in this year’s “Festival Guide”. Let’s get started…
