Coachella: Weekend 1

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is a thing and it happened. For those who went and survived getting beat by nonstop bass at the Sahara tent, overly expensive food, and gruesome Port-A-Potties: props. For those who caught a mad case of FOMO, I've got you covered...

The first day of Coachella is when I had the most energy. I was easily bouncing from stage to stage and saw every act I planned to see on Friday. The very first performance I caught was A$AP Ferg — he was chill, but for some odd reason I REALLY enjoyed seeing the Cali trio HAIM wailing on their guitars way more than hearing Ferg rap about the trap life. Throughout the day I was able to see DJ Carnage (tight), Woodkid (majestic), and Girl Talk(I told you guys he was going to kill it!) rock day 1 of Coachellz. I ended my night with Outkast. Besides all the weird stuff that was going on with Andre 3000, I enjoyed it.


Coachella strugg levels hit 35% on day 2. According to my 100% iPhone battery, I was ready to hit the polo fields on the early side of the second day to watch Young and Sick, UZ, The Internet, Banks, Julian Casablancas, Dillon Francis, Lorde, and Pharrell. My favorite was definitely Banks. Her engagement with the audience was incredibly organic and consistent throughout her set.


Final day of Coachellz is always bittersweet. I struggled so hard to see everyone from Blood Orange to Arcade Fire. It's official — my sixth year in a row at the massive music and arts festival is a wrap. Now it's time for me to wait another year before once again obsessing over awesome music and spicy pie.
