Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival

Coachella is one of the biggest music festivals in America, definitely the biggest on the West Coast. Coachella Festival started in 1999, headlined by Beck and Tool. It was a 2 day weekend in October, at the Indio Polo Grounds. In 2001 they moved it to April, and Coachella Fest really took off. It’s still held at the Indio Polo Grounds, but in 2007, they expanded it to 3 days. And in 2012 they made the festival have 2 weekends. The 2 weekends have identical lineups. It’s not a bad move for Goldenvoice, the company that runs the festival. Since they have the years top artists in So-Cal for 2 weeks, they fill the weekdays before and in between the festival weekends with concerts. San Diego, Los Angeles, and Pomona have some amazing shows during mid-April. The unfortunate side of the success of Coachella is that the tickets usually sell out within hours of being posted. Shortly after the 2014 Festival ended, a batch of tickets were made available and then sold out, all before a lineup was announced. Unfortunately, the $375 General Admission passes are sold out again this year. Unless you’re a local resident of the Coachella Valley (in which case you can purchase tickets the wednesday before each weekend), you’re going to have to beg, barter, or pay price surges on Craigslist. Despite the craziness of getting a ticket, Coachella fest is an amazing experience. There’s music for all ears, good food, a beautiful backdrop, and tons of good looking people running around. This year is headlined by AC DC, Drake, and Jack White. Other musical acts to check-out are Tame Impala, Kimbra, Angus and Julia Stone, George Ezra, Ratatat, Hozier, Chet Faker, Belle & Sebastian, Father John Misty, FKA Twigs, Mac DeMarco, Jamie XX (one half of the UK group, the XX), Jenny Lewis,  Built to Spill, and the Orwells. If you can’t find yourself a ticket, look online, your favorite band from Coachella is probably playing a couple of concerts in So-Cal in April. See you in the Desert!
