The Festival Headliners You Don't Want To Miss This Summer

Between fresh faces and some old favorites coming out to play, here are the 10 festival headliners you don't want to miss this summer:

1. LCD Soundsystem

After breaking up in 2011, LCD Soundsystem is back and ready to take festival season by storm. After announcing in 2015 that the band has reunited and will be releasing a new album this year, they're slated to headline the Governor's Ball, Coachella, Panorama and Bonnaroo. Get ready to dance yourself clean!

2. Kanye West

Kanye is a legend in his own mind and the chance to see an artist of his magnitude in a festival setting is something you don't want to miss. Catch Ye headlining the final night of the Governor's Ball this June.

3. The Killers

Another headliner at the Governor's Ball this year is The Killers. The band is currently recording a new album and if they follow in the same path they always have it's sure not to disappoint.

4. Dead and Company

Composed in 2015 and consisting of original Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir along with Jeff Chimenti, John Mayer and Oteil Burbridge, Dead and Company are coming together again this summer to headline Bonnaroo.

5. Arcade Fire

Praised for scoring Spike Jonze's, "her" and by the late David Bowie, Arcade Fire's 8 piece band is a force to be reckoned with. They've kept quiet since the 2013 release of Reflektor but seeing as they're headlining Panorama this summer I'm sure they have something up their sleeve.

6. Kendrick Lamar

K Dot bursted into the scene in 2012 with good kid, m.A.A.d city and he's been topping the charts ever since. With seven Grammy's under his belt Kendrick's headlining set at Panorama is going to be a must-see.

7. Major Lazer

Diplo, Walshy Fire and Jillionaire aka Major Lazer took the world by storm last year with "Lean On" and it went on to be the Spotify's most streamed track of all time. With another album on the way and the group set to headline Electric Forest and Co-Headline Panorama it doesn't look like they're slowing down anytime soon.

8. Red Hot Chili Peppers

Who doesn't like the Red Hot Chili Peppers? With classics like Dani California and their eleventh studio album underwork their headlining set at Osheaga is one you don't want to miss.

9. Lana Del Rey

Sultry goddess Lana Del Rey has quickly made a name for herself in the music industry. After co-headlining the Governor's Ball last year and openly stating that she prefers to play outdoor festivals so she can smoke cigarettes while performing it comes as no surprise that she will also be headlining Osheaga.

10. Radiohead

Formed in 1985, Radiohead has become one of the most iconic bands there is. Seeing as we haven't gotten a new album from them since 2011, hopefully their Osheaga headlining set means something new is in store.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
