Brooke Bertuzzi is a designer at R&R Partners, but she’s also one of the most entertaining and outrageous Las Vegans on Twitter (@BrookeInVegas). Her feed provides consistent comedic relief throughout the day (frankly, we wonder how she gets any work done) on a variety of subjects. There’s office humor: “The HR department called me in for a meeting this morning. My only defense is that that’s how I really eat a banana.” Relationships: “You know, fairy tales should come with a warning label: Handsome prince may eventually start acting like a toad again.” Family: “Teaching my mother how to use the computer is like teaching a dog how to ride a bike. With no handlebars. On a trampoline. In space. Stoned.” And plain old silliness: “I’m ashamed of what I’ve done for a Klondike bar.” You won’t necessarily learn anything from this Twitter addict, but she is a must-follow. Bertuzzi does comes with a warning, though: “If you’re easily offended, then I’m not the girl for you.”

Gorillaz are coming to Las Vegas for the first time ever. 2016’s Grammy winner for best new artist, Chance the Rapper, will return.

And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
