The Deal: Coachella
This year, we did things differently. Normally, the grounds at Indio get my undivided attention, but with inspired events, social-space snagging brands, and an influx of folks flocking to the fest, there were a bunch of bashes worth the crashes (Harpers Bazaar + Neon Carnival to name a few!)
On the tune front, it was the new Yuma tent (full of tech house sounds, some from the father himself - Richie Hawtin) that fueled my fuel band; the Sahara Tent continued to impress with hard hitting acts like Hardwell, Benny Benassi and Fedde Le Grand.
But there’s still something about the stages - lined along the grassy lawn that make Coachella so unique. And having the The XX, Lumineers, Wu Tang and Red Hot Chilli Peppers perform? Well that certainly made the trek worthwhile… even in a sandstorm.
