The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual two-weekend, three-day music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert. The event features many different genres of music and attracts the biggest names in music today, as well as art installations and sculptures. There are several stages that continuously host live music across the grounds, the main stages being: Coachella Stage, Outdoor Stage, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, Sahara Tent, Oasis Dome, and Yuma Stage. Notable appearances in the past include: Amy Winehouse, Prince, Paul McCartney, Arcade Fire, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Madonna, Jay-Z The Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Daft Punk, Rage Against the Machine, and so many more. It has become one of the largest, most famous, and most profitable music festivals in the world.
Music is the reason that everyone attends Coachella each and every year. Not only because the festival plats host to some of the greatest musical performers in the world, but because something might happen that is truly historic and may never happen again. In 2012, during the performances of legendary rappers Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, a projection of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur came up from under the stage and performed two of his songs. It was a moment that rocked popular culture and changed the idea of what musical performances can be in the future. The festival is also dedicated to visual arts, including installation art and sculpture. Most of the pieces are interactive, providing a visual treat to the attendees walking around the festival grounds. Each year some of the most progressive and innovative artists attend Coachella and showcase their newest pieces of art. Coachella is a must for anyone who loves popular music and art.
There is a lot to do between watching the live performances and looking at the fantastic pieces of art. There are 3 legged races, bad dancing competitions, Berlin style ping pong parties, beauty bars, corn hole tournaments, art studios, dodgeball, a Ferris wheel, early bird raffles, a Fruttare hangout, staring contests, Twister, a spelling bee, a joke contest, a limbo contest, massages, dance parties, phone charging lounges, relay races, pinball, rock paper scissors tournaments, the Spotify social, a water balloon toss, yoga/pilates, and if you can believe it, so much more. If you get bored while at Coachella, we truly do not know what to tell you. The festival is an entertainment supernova, with something fun and exciting to do wherever you turn, literally. Buy your tickets and be ready to have a once in a lifetime experience!
