The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA, just next to Palm Springs, in the middle of the desert. You will basically find all kinds of music, including rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic dance music, as well as art installations and sculptures. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and the ambiance created with the desert surrounding the stages is so particular and unique.
Coachella showcases popular and established musical artists, as well as emerging artists and reunited groups. From a single day annual event in 2001, it became one of the most famous music event festivals across the globe, with consecutive 3-day weekends in April, each weekend having identical lineups. The 2017 edition of Coachella will take place from April 14–16 and April 21–23, and will feature Radiohead, Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar as headlining artists.  Other artists set to play the festival include The XX, Travis Scott, Father John Misty, Empire of the Sun, Bon Iver, Future, DJ Snake, Lorde, Justice, New Order, and so many others… Tickets, as usual, sold out within a few hours of going on sale. Almost 200,000 people over the 2 weekends will be wowed, amazed and blown away! Lucky them!!
