Anthony’s Take: I’m bummed that I’ll be away this weekend. The lineup looks great and with the presale there is a good discount. If it works for you and you’re a cardholder, book now.

Anthony’s Credit Card Pick: The Chase Sapphire Reserve® is a great premium card with lots of benefits including a $300 Annual Travel Credit as reimbursement for travel purchases charged to your card each account anniversary year; 1:1 point transfer to leading airline and hotel loyalty programs including Hyatt and United;
