I feel like a lot of people have heard about the infamous Coachella music festival, but no one really knows much about its history. Paul Tollett founded Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in 1999. The festival showcases a range of music genres from electronic, house, rock, indie, r&b to hip-hop. Coachella is one of the most famous and largest music festivals in the world. Due to its popularity, the festival has consecutive three-day weekends in April (Weekend One and Weekend Two). I attended Coachella Weekend Two and the line up is below:
With so many artists and DJs performing – it is impossible to see every single one of them, especially if they perform at the same time at different stages. As much as I wanted to see everyone, I only saw half of the performers. Some highlights were Zedd, A$AP Rocky, Grimes and G-Eazy. And yes, I went to all 7 stages: Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, the Sahara Tent, the Do-Lab and the Heineken House. These stages were far from each other, which I don’t mind. But I have to warn you, it’s a lot of walking – so wear comfortable shoes.
What I wore:
Unfortunately, I did not attend Day 3 since my boyfriend and I only wanted to go for two days. Thank goodness though, I don’t know how I’d be able to handle three straight days of partying (haha).
If you plan to go to Coachella or any other music festivals that is in the deserts, make sure you pack these items:
– a bandana to shield yourself from all of the dust – sunglasses for the sun – sun block for your skin – an external battery pack – water pack – allergy medication
I didn’t know how windy and dusty it was going to be in Indio, so I did not pack a bandana. But trust me, this little handkerchief would be your lifesaver and best friend when it gets super windy. I believe that this is probably why I got sick after Coachella. All in all, it was an unforgettable music festival – it’s definitely an experience that you need to experience for yourself!
