What is Coachella?

If you’re like me and your social networking sites (for me: tumblr, twitter, instagram) are being flooded with the hashtag #coachella and you’re seeing pics of fabulously/funkily dressed celebrities and you’re wondering where and what is this haven, then allow me to explain.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is a three day music and arts festival at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California every year and is organised by Goldenvoice. The first Coachellafest was held on 9-10 October, 1999 with the first visual arts aspect introduced in 2003.

The Lineup this year included Band of Horses, Beach House, Ben Howard, Biffy Clyro, Franz Ferdinand, Jamie XX, Local Natives, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Passion Pit, The Lumineers, The Airborne Toxic Event, The XX, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, etc.

Checking out the lineup, this festival looked amazing and I know that it’s probably like every other music festival but I feel like Coachella is something you HAVE TO DO at point in your life.

Also, where else can you dress up like this Not in Ireland 😦 (I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with maxi skirts and California styles)
