But you don't have to watch it on TV – you can experience the magic for yourself, along with the countless attractions of the amazing cities that host it from year to year.
World Golf Championships Dell Match Play Austin
– The WGC Dell Technologies Match Play golf tournament is one of the premier PGA events. The WGC Dell Match Play event is a favorite amongst golf fans thanks to its unique format, which features a match play structure rather than the stroke format that is used in most PGA tournaments. The knockout format is something completely different when it comes to the PGA calendar, and its intriguing matchups and intense play make it a fun event to watch. The Austin, Texas based event is one of the four World Golf Championship competitions played during the year. The 2018 event will tee off on March 21 through March 25.
Champions League Football
– The UEFA Champions League pits the best football clubs in the world against each other. Played midweek during the domestic league season in Europe, the Champions League is contested by each European country's top clubs. The 2018 Champions League Final will take place in Kiev, Ukraine. The high stakes match will be played on Saturday May 26th. It will not only culminate the Champions League season, but it will put an exclamation point on the year for all the top domestic leagues. As always, the Champions League is a must-see event for football fans. No matter which team a fan supports, the Champions League always showcases the best clubs and players in the game.

Of course, golf is the main attraction, and a trip to the Masters is biggest event a golf fan can experience.
Coachella Music and Arts Festival

Located amidst the desert landscapes in Coachella Valley, this colorful festival is spread across six days on two consecutive weekends and features a star-studded lineup of indie, electronica and hip-hop artists. Although the festival is undoubtedly the main attraction, Coachella generates an incredibly vibrant atmosphere which flows into the Palm Springs region with exclusive parties, events, and general excitement at every turn. While most music festivals promise unforgettable acts and electrifying performances, not many take place in such a mystical environment and few can rival the spirited experience you will find at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival.
