Earlier today Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival announced their 2017 lineup for both weekends which will be April 14-16 and April 21-23 and..it’s REALLY good you guys! The festival FOMO will be strong this year with this one. Are you going? Who are you most excited to see? If I were to go I would be most excited about: Radiohead, Glass Animals, Beyonce, Phantogram (obviously), Galantis, Kaytranada, What So Not, Jai Wolf, Marshmello, Real Estate, Big Gigantic, Royksopp, Schoolboy Q, Mac Miller, Banks, Jagwar Ma, Grouplove, Mac Demarco, and a lot more (so basically thew whole damn lineup!). I’m actually a little surprised to not see Flume on the list since he seems to be scheduled for quite a few festivals earlier in the year. Hmm perhaps he will be a late addition? Tickets will be going on sale tomorrow (Wednesday, January 4th, 2017) at 11:00AM PST. Click here for more information. Let me know your thoughts and check out the full lineup below!
Every year when music festival season comes around I start to feel the “too many festivals, not enough resources” blues. I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about. Even though I know I can’t go to all these festivals, there is a part of me (the part that’s seriously in denial) that prefers to play pretend in the form of making my personalized “bands to see” list. If you’ve been to a festival, you’ve made this list, and if you haven’t…well you’re just not very organized. I know that when I go to Lollapalooza every year my favorite thing to do while I wait for the festival to get here is to pick and choose which bands I want to see since there a few hundred to choose from and almost all of them are great!
Coachella is a very special Festival to me. I’ve never been but it seems like Lolla…AMPLIFIED. Also there are tons of celebrities there which doesn’t hurt either. I am hoping to be able to cross Coachella off of my bucket list in the next year or two. Until then, here is who I would see if I were going to be there this weekend…
Once again it’s THAT time of year where Lollapalooza is right around the corner and as per usual I am starting to make my many lists I tend to make to get ready (what to pack, what to buy, band schedule, etc.). August 2010 was my first Lolla trip and since then I am making it a tradition to go every year, this year will be my third! Each time I attend a music festival, I learn more and more about how to be be better prepared. I thought I would get together all of the information I’ve picked up along the way and compile a list for you, if you want it, or even just for myself to look back on each year. Whether you are headed to Lolla like me, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Sasquatch or any other music festival…this list will most likely apply to you. I hope it helps you get ready for some of the greatest musical events you’ll ever experience! Without further ado (not “adieu”, I looked it up) here is list..
