The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (Coachella) is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA. Coachella was co-founded in 1999 by Paul Tollett and Rick Van Santen, and is organized by Goldenvoice. The festival features different genres of music, including rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic dance music, as well as art installations and sculptures.
The main stages are the: Coachella Stage, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, Outdoor Theatre, Sahara Tent, and the Yuma stage.
The origins of the Coachella Festival date back to 1993, when rock bands Tool and Pearl Jam performed at California’s Empire Polo Club. Six years later, the first Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was launched at the site. The first festival drew a crowd of 25,000 people.
The festival was moved to April to provide relief from the area’s high temperatures, and it was extended to two days. The changes worked; the crowds grew larger year after year to the point where Coachella has become one of the most popular music festivals in the country. The 2015 festival sold 198,000 tickets and grossed $84.3 million, both records.
Some of the acts that have appeared throughout the years include Leonard Cohen, Depeche Mode, Madonna, Muse, Jay-Z, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Don’t miss your chance to see the hottest acts in music today.
