You've Got to Hit These 18 LA Springtime Events

Sponsored by

Spring in LA -- what's not to love? Outdoor festivals, warmer temps, and the outfits (lack of outfits?) that accompany both. In other words, it's the best. And here are 18 things you've gotta do before it's over.

Nowruz Festival

This free (FREE!) Persian New Year fest will have great food & an outdoor concert from a "groundbreaking Iranian rock band." Also, not sure if we mentioned this but... FREE!!!!!!

Micah Wexler @ Colony Palms

The crazy-lauded chef behind Wexler's Deli is popping up at one of Palm Springs' best hotels for a gin-paired dinner. Epic road trip, anyone?

The Music of David Lynch

Your favorite ultra-weirdo collabs with other weirdos like The Flaming Lips on a one-off performance of music from his movies/TV (including the Twin Peaks theme song, the Angelo Badalamenti score to Blue Velvet, and Mulholland Drive's "Llorando").
