Music-loving Phoneicans have been basking in Coachella's sunshine all week, and this weekend is no different. High-profile acts from the California festival will continue swooping into the Valley of the Sun. It's a great time to be a fan with disposable income.

Local music festivals abound too, from the Under the Bridge Folk Fest to Phochella to the Arizona 420 Festival (Update: now cancelled). There's something for every fan, on every budget.
