Coachella Festival starts this weekend!

Standard

South By Southwest (SXSW) rip-roared its way through Austin, Texas in March and now we have another monster-sized festival coming to the US in April!

It’s almost time for Coachella!!!

Coachella

Coachella is a famous music festival held in Indio, California that’s 130 miles from LA and a mere 23 miles from Palm Springs International Airport!

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival AKA Coachella is an annual two-weekend, three-day music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club.

action_PoloThat’s right! It’s held on a huge Polo Field in Indio Valley California! How cool is that?!

It looks like the most beautiful place for a music festival!

Coachella will be rolling out this weekend: April 11-13 and then will return the following weekend April 18-20!!!

If you live in California and are interested in going to the show, I would recommend getting on Craigslist, Stubhub, and eBay all at the same time right now because the festival is SOLD OUT!

By the way, fashion is just about as big as the music at Coachella…especially for the ladies:

First of all, let me just say that the MOST EXCITING THING on this entire festival list is OutKast!!! You don’t understand swagger until you know Andre 3000  and Big Boi 😉

They’re headlining both Fridays & reunited only for Coachella for the first time since 2006!

As far as Saturdays go, you have to completely fangirl right now just like me over Muse!!!

Left to right: Calvin Harris, Disclosure, Lana Del Rey, & Krewella are my Sunday favorites!

I saw Krewella in Nashville and they absolutely blew my mind! SO GOOD 😀 and I’M SO PROUD that they will be making a splash during Coachella 2014.

This year’s Coachella tickets sold out in less than three hours!!! However I wanted to make a note that advertisers are getting pretty smart with the celebrities at Coachella!

Lea Michele from Glee is going to receive $20,000 from Lacoste to wear their clothes, while “Spring Breakers” star Vanessa Hudgens is getting paid $15,000 by McDonald’s to promote their image!

Word is that celebrities can be paid up to $50,000 for attending Coachella!!! My first and only thought is: “Like they need it!” 😀

Word on the street is that Joe Jonas wants close to $20,000 in order to attend!

Demi Lovato and Nylon Magazine December Issue CelebrationI wonder if he shaved off this mustache yet!  #EWWWW

Besides amazing acts and overly paid celebrities, Coachella boasts art installation as well:
