Arguably one of the biggest festivals in North America, Coachella boasts hundreds of musical acts over three days across two weekends in April. It’s an entire experience unto itself.
In this new series, I’ll take you through some things you first-timers will want to know about preparing for the big weekend! And even if you’re a festival veteran, you might pick up some new tips so read on.
The main reason, if not the only reason, that masses of people trek out to the hot, windy desert in Indio is for the music. There are big acts and new, up-and-coming acts that grace the wonderfully designed stages around the polo fields.
Coachella is an excellent place to find new artists that you might never have heard of before. I looked up every single act on the lineup and chose some songs from artists that I was interested in.
Some personal favorites:
- Florence + the Machine
- The Weeknd
- Clean Bandit
Some newly discovered awesomeness:
- Angus & Julia Stone
- Glass Animals
