The Coachella Valley is a desert valley located in Southern California. It’s home to a few famous resort cities like Palm Desert and Palm Spring, but what makes it even more famous, at least in the last decade is the Coachella Festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, as this event is officially called, as a music and arts festival that is organized every year at the famous Empire Polo Club located in the small city of Indio.
Coachella Festival – Basic Information
It is interesting that even though this festival was held for the first time in 1999, there was an event back in 1993 which set the foundation for this spectacle. Namely, back in 1993, it was Pearl Jam that performed at the Empire Polo Club and they did this because they don’t want to perform in venues controlled by Ticketmaster. Six years later, the first Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was held.
The festival is organized by Goldenvoice and it was co-founded by Rick Van Santen and Paul Tollett. There were a few different popular bands at the festival in 1999 which grabbed the attention of the public like Rage Against the Machine, Morrissey, Tool, the Chemical Brothers, and Beck. Due to some technical issues, the festival was not held in 2000, but it continued in 2001 and now visitors can enjoy great music and art, in general, every year.
The Coachella Music and Arts Festival in 2018 started on April 12th and ended on April 21st. According to some sources, this was one of the best editions of the festival in years. Obviously, Beyonce was the main star of the festival. It’s interesting that she didn’t appear on the first weekend as scheduled and appeared the next weekend, but it looks like this change made things even more exciting.
Of course, there were a few other top performers on this festival like Jamiroquai, St. Vincent. Kygo, SZA, Vince Staples, Jean-Michel Jarre, Eminem, A Perfect Circle, Fleet Foxed, HAIM and more. There were also some smaller sets which were ideal for those looking for a more relaxed atmosphere. Many new artists got a chance to show their talents in Coachella this year too. But, it was not just the music and artwork that made people feel satisfied at this festival. There were many great places where people could buy delicious food and desserts for example.
We can freely say that this festival is becoming one of the top annual festivals in the world. Thousands of visitors that were part of this year’s Coachella Festival will definitely agree with this claim.
