Next stop: the Coachella Festival! For those who doesn’t know it, Coachella is a huge music and art festival in the desert outside Palm Springs. I have always wanted to visit this festival, as they always seem to manage to put together a lineup no other festival can compete with, so at first it was kind of hard for me to comprehend that I was finally there.
I don’t really know where to begin to describe the experience, the music, the people, the fashion, the beautiful festival site with all the art installations, the relentless desert sun, the sandstorms at night… Let’s just say, it met my expectations and more.
We watched some great gigs by Lykke Li, Interpol, Belle and Sebastian, Father John Misty, Florence + The Machine, Ryan Adams, Built to Spill, Jenny Lewis, Ride, etc, etc. But I think what we both will take with us is the feeling of being there, in the middle of the desert, enjoying the music together with tens of thousands of others. It was truly an experience I will never forget, and I hope I will get the chance to return.
