This weekend, the fourth annual Montauk Music Festival kicked off summer 2013 without skipping a beat. From May 16-19, indie musicians took to local venues for the volunteer-run, grassroots live music festival. Among the festival's featured musicians were folk, pop, rock, and hip hop artists. If you're looking to relive the weekend's most Instagram-worthy moments (or if you didn't make it out East), we've rounded up some of the festival's finest photos, from sand to stage! More»
Whether you're an experienced EDM concert-goer or a first-timer, Ultra music festival is all about having the right outfit. If sporting pasties and furry boots aren't really your thing, take a look at these 10 accessories we picked out. From chic headbands to studded fanny packs, here are the essentials for any girl heading to Miami this weekend. More»
If each festival has its own identity, what, exactly, is FYF Fest? Is it a fashionable trust-fund hipster like Coachella? A shitkickin' good old boy like Stagecoach? An impressively drugged-out nudist like Burning Man? Well, as we learned last weekend, the FYF Fest is more like that friend of yours who got a six-figure financial job but still blacks out and pukes on himself on the weekends. In other words, it's bigger and fancier than ever, but the DIY attitude it was founded on is still alive and well. More»
We absolutely love summer music festivals, but even we have to admit that the world of hip-hop has been rather underrepresented. Sure, Dre & Snoop tore the roof off at Coachella, but other than that it wasn't what we would have called a thoroughly funky affair. And while we more than appreciated the Action Bronson cameo at HARD L.A., once again, it was more a happy change-of-pace rather than the general tone of things. Which is why Rock The Bells, which like its contemporaries expanded this year to a multi-day affair, remains absolutely essential. Here's a look at some of the best moments from this weekend's installment at San Bernardino's NOS Events Center. More»

Hey, you with the tan lines and the Corolla that's still sporting Connecticut plates. Welcome to L.A. We know you've been talking up SoCal to all your Emerson buddies ever since you landed an internship in the WME mailroom, but now you're out here and you're trying to mine your extensive knowledge of Entourage to think of things to do this summer. One small snafu: you're not a movie star yet, and that $11.63 an hour that Ari's paying you isn't going to support the groovy lifestyle of bangin' club nights that you had envisioned. Lucky for you, L.A. is chock full of great things to do on a budget and we've got the low-down on 10 full days of fun for under $20. More»
Asia is a secret playground for musicians. Music festivals are rampant in the summer months, and huge international acts share the stage with obscure but equally good local artists. The best part about music festivals in this part of the world is that they have yet to develop a mainstream following like that of Glastonbury or Coachella, making tickets accessible and affordable. On the artistic side of things, musicians who play at these festivals often drop the superficial act largely due to the absence of the paparazzi and the presence of fans that are truly there for the music, rather than the festival brand. Here are some festivals coming up in the summer that are worth booking your flights for. More»
With SXSW wrapped up, Ultra wound down, and Coachella right around the corner, Music Festival Season is hitting its stride. But where to go? There are a lot of options, and unless you're a Shah of Sunset, chances are you can't afford the cross-country tour to make it to them all. Don't worry though, we have spent a great deal of time researching all the festivals that you should be considering, and have the rundown on all the Whos, Whats, Whens and Wheres to help you decide which music fests to hit this season. So sit back, relax, and start searching for your credit card as we bring you Guest of a Guest's Guide to the Best of Music Fest Season. More»
Sunset Junction or no Sunset Junction, the Summer of Live Music rolls on. But with nothing happening in Silver Lake and Hurricane Irene bearing down on the East Coast, you might have to really get out of town to have some fun. So why not cash in your frequent flier miles and jet over to Leeds, about 200 miles north of London, where one half of the annual Leeds & Reading Festivals (two coordinated, simultaneous music festivals in separate cities) is currently raging. I'll warn you now, the weather sucks over there too, but as these photos from the Festival's official Flickr prove, the show goes on.

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
