The Best Alternatives to Coachella

It's that time of the year again. Coachella is everywhere and everything. But, it doesn't have to be. If you didn't get the opportunity to snag tickets to Coachella this weekend for a million and one dollars, it's really okay. There are a ton of fun alternatives! And if you did splurge on the desert festival, we hope you had a blast! We do, however, BEG you to look yourself in the mirror before you caption your next Instagram photo, "coachillen."Avoid the Coachella madness with these fun, convenient, and affordable alternatives:1) Broke LA (formerly known as Brokechella)This year, BROKE LA returns to Downtown LA at 695 S Santa Fe Ave. The interactive music and arts fest will host five stages, a few of our favorite LA vendors, dope art installations, and the introduction of "BROKE FILM".2) Local LA ConcertsThere's always a lot of overspill from Coachella, as most artists are traveling through LA on their way to the desert. Check out some of the great forthcoming shows happening this month via Oh My Rockness.  3) Outdoor Movie ScreeningsRooftop Cinema Club provides regular screenings of classics and new films at a variety of outdoor venues throughout the city.4) LA Beer HopIf you're looking for an excuse to drink some brews, Beer Hop offers brewery tours on the weekends, offering three tours that focus on different LA neighborhoods: East/Central LA, South Bay and Long Beach.
