Coachella Musings

I had always wanted to go to Coachella…it's always just seemed like a Woodstock type of event that I couldn't miss in my lifetime. My mom missed out on Woodstock because her dad wouldn't let her go and she's always regretted it…meanwhile my Dad made it there with his twin and it's been a highlight of his life. To compare the two events isn't exactly right but I must say I'm so glad I experienced it.
The allure of bands I'd been dying to see,  some much needed sunshine away from the stresses of everyday city life, and the chance to hang out with some of my best friends sealed the deal for me. And to top it off, Calvin Harris played on my actual birthday! 
My favorite performances included Chromeo, Zedd, Calvin Harris and Pharrell. We averaged about seven shows per day so we really saw a mix of acts from rappers to EDM (my personal favorite). The weather was hot but not unbearable…however the sandstorm that hit Saturday night took my voice away for a solid two days. Lesson learned…you need to bring a scarf. 
Now that I'm home, I still can't get Chromeo's song "Jealous" out of my head and I keep replaying the awesome videos I took over and over. I'm already trying to relive it and it's only been a week! Coachella is an experience I will remember forever and one that I highly recommend to anyone that loves music, dancing and sunshine.
