    Yahoo!, which has been flailing about as a search engine and web product developer for years, will launch its own international music festival. The event will be called "Yahoo! on the Road," and will have featured artists like Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and special guests Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean and Trey Songz.

    There will be a total of 21 dates on the tour, with 14 of them being domestic. Seven dates will canvas Europe.

    Yahoo! claimed that the event will be "a daily mobile entertainment and innovation festival this spring/summer featuring the world's hottest bands, comedians, and surprise guests."

    Sounds cool to us!
