Coachella Music and Arts Festival Details
What started as a festival in California on October 9, 1999 would soon turn into a cultural phenomenon for years to come. The Coachella Music & Arts Festival is not just an event, it’s a way of life. With “Coachella” fashion lines popping up and more hype surrounding the festival with every year, people get lost in all of the pulsating energy that Coachella creates.
Back in 1999, Coachella was a two-day festival with headliners Beck and Rage Against the Machine. After that first festival in October, the event moved to the month of April. It wasn’t until 2007 that the Coachella Music & Arts Festival went on for three days rather than two. With more people drawn to the festival from all over the country, it only made sense for Coachella to expand by a day.
And then, in 2012, something even bigger happened. No longer was Coachella just a festival that happened one weekend in California each year. Now, Coachella is the festival– and it lasts for two weekends. Guests can opt to get passes for one weekend or the other, or just a day or two during each weekend event. It depends on who’s playing and who you most want to see– the choice is yours, but tickets sell out fast!
Coachella is more of an experience than a music festival. Folks dress up in their most fashionable summer boho attire and embark on a weekend (or two) of great music, incredible food, flowing drinks, and gorgeous art. In fact, each year, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival commissions several original, large-scale, art installations to be peppered throughout the festival.
Unlike other festivals, like NYC’s Governors Ball Music Festival, Coachella offers on-site camping for those interested! From safari tents to car camping, people travel near and far for this once-in-a-lifetime festival experience.

If you’re looking for a low-key event, this is not the spot for you! Folks who attend Coachella are energized, passionate, and ready to let loose and have fun. It’s a bit like Disneyland- there’s so much to see and do, and you’ll even see families in attendance. Coachella has grown so much in nearly two decades and, at this rate, it will only continue to be a must-attend event for any true festival lover.
