Music festivals — including Coachella and Electric Daisy Carnival — haven't been this popular since the hippie days of the 1960s. Now gearing up to add another to the growing roster of festival dates is none other than vintner, Eataly-owner, massive star in Italy, and Mario Batali partner-in-crime Joe Bastianich.

Last year, Joe hosted a mini music festival at his restaurant and bed & breakfast Orsone in the Northern Italian town of Cividale del Friuli. Perhaps this year he will bring the festival stateside? Eater has reached out to the Bastianich group for more information. Here's Joe on the guitar at last year's fest:
