Coachella Music and Arts Festival Details
Since its humble West Coast beginnings in 1999, Coachella has grown to become one the most highly-anticipated musical gatherings in the world, and a place for both fans and celebrities to see and be seen (for better or worse). Held annually at Empire Polo Field in Indio, CA, the festival has actually gotten so popular that in 2012 it expanded to two full weekends of entertainment. The start of Coachella marks the kick-off of festival season, with it generally taking place during the middle two weekends in April. It’s no wonder why the event draws in so many concert-goers, as its headliners generally represent a “who’s who” in popular music across all genres. The 2017 list of artists includes Radiohead, Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar and the XX, plus Lorde, Bon Iver, Future and a host more.
