Ear candy. Festival fashion, filled with sparkles, feathers, and color. Jaw-dropping art. A picturesque desert location, just off Palm Springs. These are just some of the things that attendees look forward to, year after year, at Coachella, considered as one of the best festivals around the world in April.
This annual music festival is held at the stunning grounds of the Empire Polo Club, which transforms into a music and arts paradise.
‘Both established and up-and-coming names in indie, rock, EDM, and hip-hop create a delightful auditory experience that will have you dancing for hours.’
The first Coachella was held in 1999, and today it is recognized as one of the biggest and most famous music festivals in the world. It’s THE place to be during spring, so don’t be left behind with FOMO next year. It’s featured the Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beyonce, Radiohead, Belle and Sebastian, The Flaming Lips, Coldplay, Madonna, and many other timeless acts. Watch out fort the 2019 lineup which will not disappoint.
The event’s success has made it a benchmark for American music festivals, which many have tried to duplicate. It is the ultimate destination festival in the United States, where attendees can revel in the beautiful outdoors, indulge in art, come in crazy festival attire, and have the party of a lifetime over two weekends. Plus, there are more than a hundred vendors selling festival food that most other events can only dream of offering: wood-fired pizza, handmade burgers, street tacos, and even gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian delights. Craft beers and curated cocktails from talented mixologists will serve as your party fuel. Don’t drink? There’s kombucha too! Yes, seriously: they’ve thought of everything.
Coachella is held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, east of Palm Springs in California. There are General Admission tickets, VIP admission, and tickets enhanced with shuttle pass and parking.
Get around efficiently by option for the shuttles that are offered via Valley Music Travel, valid for all days of the festival. You can also make use of the national bus services offered by Greyhound, and the train and bus stops of Amtrak. If you’re traveling with a group, your best bet is to rent a car. Rideshares, taxis, and limousines will also be available.
