For all those who may not know or heard of Coachella, it is definitely something you need to check out! Set in Indio, CA (a little over 2 hours from LA – if you’re not caught in the horrific traffic), Coachella is a 3 day music & arts festival that has been held once a year since 1999. 2012 became the first year where 2 consecutive weekends were offered, April 13-15 & April 20-22 & tickets were sold out in 3 hours! This years artists included Gotye, The Black Keys, Eminem & even deceased rapper Tupac Shakur (in a hologram form, but still!). While past performers have included Kanye West, Jack Johnson, M.I.A., Tiesto, Madonna & so on.
This annual weekend has attracted people not only for the abundance of musical talent, but also for the chance to have a camp-out on site, go celebrity watching &/or stalking & go shopping for hippie-bohemian staples. The weekend is usually a scorcher, which means it is socially acceptable to look like you’re ready for the beach. If you’re thinking about possibly attending next years, take a look at the attire of celebs & fellow Coachella attendees. Just don’t forget your hair maintenance, especially if you’re planning on wearing little to nothing for a whole weekend!
