In 1993, a rock band named Pearl Jam held a concert on an under-developed piece of land in Indo, California, in order to boycott Ticketmaster and the auditoriums they controlled in southern California. Six years later, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was founded in the same location. The festival lasts three days and features artists from many different genres of music.
This year, the lineup is absurd. Just to name a few of my favorites…
Jay-Z, LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend, Grizzly Bear, Passion Pit, Yeasayer, Ra Ra Riot, Sleigh Bells, Wale, Tiesto, MGMT, The Dead Weather, Hot Chip, The Dirty Projectors, The xx, Camera Obscura, Beach House, Thom Yorke, Phoenix, Spoon, Matt & Kim, Mike Snow, and Florence + The Machine.
You’ve got to be kidding me..
