As the time of year meant for letting loose and basking in the warm air and sunshine, summertime fun and music festival go hand-in-hand, complete with live music, dancing and general revelry. Lucky for us, the music fest circuit is kicking into high gear and L.A. is hosting some of the hottest ones this summer for your enjoyment. This year we have long-running festivals holding it down and a couple of newbies breaking onto the scene, all of which cover the whole music fest spectrum, from the unst-unst, rave-y, PLUR-filled ones to the psychedelic hippy-ish retreats. We've pored over the plethora of events and narrowed it down to the ones you can't miss, so pay attention as we guide to the best music festivals to hit this summer in the L.A. area.

New York City’s cultural center of gravity has officially hopped the L train. First stop, Williamsburg. Not so long ago, “Bridge and Tunnel” was a term that Manhattanites used to denigrate their borough brethren. Now, many Brooklynites use “B&T” to snarkily refer to their undesirable Manhattan neighbors. The times, they are a changin’. Today, the cultural cognoscente can fly into JFK and have a hip NYC vacation without ever stepping foot on Manhattan. And, Australian born, Manhattan bred, Dumbo residing Peter Lawrence is just the sort of global nomad who can help cement the trend by giving these “adventurous travelers” what he refers to as “practical luxury” at the Wythe Hotel.
Form follows function, and the Wythe Hotel’s “practical luxury” hospitality has picked up the plot where post-Schrager Manhattan hotels left off. The Wythe is all Brooklyn, all the time, in the best way. And come on, be honest, aren’t we all just a little tired of Manhattan? Williamsburg may very well be the 4th largest city in America, but it’s also well on it’s way to becoming the hippest, if it isn’t already.
The free trade coffee that is Williamsburg has been brewing for a long time, and Peter Lawrence is encouraging you to wake up (at the Wythe Hotel) and smell the coffee – on their hand made-in-Brooklyn custom beds.

We had a chance to sit down with her and get the scoop on her Halloween costumes, the New York City Ballet, and much more! More»

Take a look inside... More»
