The Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California is a dream come true. I couldn't go before because I was in school and taking time off during mid April was not an option for me. Once I finished school I was caught in the working dilemma "No time off". But this was the year, some of my closest friends and I made plans for a road trip to Palm Springs. So began an epic holiday full of great band sets, music, palm trees, sun, sand storms and cava.
Weekend 1, this ensemble was easy to wear and I really didn't look like I fit in to the festival, with all the bohemian, cut off shorts and hippie flower lovers out there. Nothing like standing out in a crowd of people. When I saw this minimal, colourless monument in the middle of the grounds at Coachella, I knew I would use it for a post. At night, different images and colours would be projected on to its walls.
There were around 85,000 people everyday, of all ages, sizes, races and fashion tastes. There are no words to describe the feeling of live music and seeing someone you admire perform so close to you. The highlights for me each day were as follow: Friday the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Karen O. oozed confidence, coolness and alpha female power (her leather jacket was to die for). Saturday Moby's, DJ set made me dance my heart out. On Sunday, Grimes (Claire Bouchard) killed it, I love her sound and her one woman show. I am going to do another post about Coachella next week because there is lots to say and share - more pictures to come.
