Since its foundation in 1999, the annual three day music and arts festival has had a knack for pulling in rock and electronic headliners. Set in Indio's desert, California, the annual three-day music and arts festival features surreal sideshows and a mountain-fringed setting that make this event the most eagerly awaited festival in the US.
Big-name international acts contrast with the friendly small town atmosphere of the event. The laid-back air of Coachella resembles that of a free hippy festival. Cafe tents stand alongside vegan food stalls. Coachella embodies the true spirit of festivals: camping, communion, music, arts and fun.
About 10,000 international music lovers head to Coachella Festival for the time of their lives. On the outskirts of the arena, Bikini-clad Californians catch the burlesque acts until vaudevillian performers splash them with gigantic water-guns.
When the sun shines, festival-goers take a time out in the shade of colourful mechanised sunflowers. Then at dusk they form circles around bonfires on the campsite and start barbecuing. That is when the alternative party begins.
If you want to be close to the performers and stay at a luxurious campsite, book early for an elegant Safari tent, which includes king beds, carpets, air-conditioning and VIP wristbands that give you access to special shuttles into the venue and backstage.
