For the past few years I have been watching Coachella happen on social media. The thought of going out to the middle of the desert for a music festival seemed so cool to me. For those of y'all that have been living under a rock, Coachella is a the largest music and art festival in the U.S. which started in 1999 and takes place in Indio, California.
Last year, one of my best friends had the opportunity to go. At the time, we were working on our first remodel project. I remember listening to the live stream while sanding cabinets thinking.....we are going to be there next year. I am a strong believer of putting things you want in to the atmosphere.
Fast forward, a year later, the huz and I were at Coachella with that same best friend and her fiancé. To say it was an awesome experience is an understatement. For someone that is not a huge fan of large crowds, I am actually surprised that we enjoyed it as much as we did. The festival is very spread out. There are seven stages with various artists performing at different times. There is just so much to do and see which helps break up the crowd.
I was very happy with the food options which ranged from vegan, gluten free, fresh, healthy and of course some junk food if you are in to that. There were also art installations scattered around the festival grounds. We spent our breaks during the day sharing our interpretations of each piece with one other. The entire valley is surrounded by beautiful mountains and palm trees. It's a great location for a festival.
If you are the least bit interested in attending Coachella you should totally do it! Experience it for yourself. We had a blast! There were a few performers we were excited to see but let's be honest....Beyonce stole the show!! She sang and danced for two hours straight without missing a beat. She is so amazing!
It was so neat to spend the weekend in a little musical pocket of time where your only concern is what you are going to eat, what time the next performance starts and what aqua fresca you are going to try next.
Below are a few pictures of our trip. Thanks for stopping by!
