Coachella 2013

Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (better known as Coachella) is back for another amazing year of fun in Indio, California.

The first Coachella event took place in 1999, but it wasn't until 2001 that Coachella became an annual event. The festival was once a two-day event that entertained 10,000 attendees. Today, Coachella has evolved into a two-weekend festival, with over 80,000 - 85,000 flocking in.

Attendees of Coachella can camp on-site, or stay in the beautiful surrounding area for the weekend's events. Regardless of where one decides to rest their heads, anyone who attends Coachella should be prepared to experience music from the best acts in the world, spectacular art installations, and delicious local fare.
