It is highly unlikely, especially if you live in California, that you’ve never heard of Coachella. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual festival held in Indio, California. It was first held in April of 1999 and has been recurring each year since 2001. The festival is a 3-day weekend event held across two consecutive weekends. The festival features big-name artists each year, up-and-coming singers, and reunited groups. The music is incredible each year, with headliners ranging from Childish Gambino, Beyonce, and AC/DC. The music ranges across rock, pop, indie, electronic, and other genres. Not only is the music important to the festival, but the art displayed through sculptures and fashion by the attendees is incredibly unique as well.
Many of the art installations are interactive making it fun for the festival-goers. The art has grown throughout the years, increasing in size and numbers throughout the festival grounds. One of the astonishing facts about the art is that the artists only have 10-days prior to the festival to place and finish up all their pieces. The scale and detail of the pieces outweigh that of the previous year’s, and the budgets become bigger too.
The clothing and accessories by everyone at the festival have become a staple part of Coachella’s reputation as well. Attendees wear very extravagant clothing that would not be normally seen in the streets of your city. People have made Coachella into the exception for all fashion rules as they pull out their most grandiose outfits, making a statement to the world, and their social media feeds. The Coachella Festival is a hugely anticipated event each year for thousands of guests, many who are celebrities themselves. Due to a large number of attendees, if you’re trying to get into the festival, you might be waiting for hours in traffic while getting into the festival. This is why Lohman Helicopter Tours has made getting into the festival easy by flying you and your group out in style in little time.
