A festival not to be missed.... Coachella Music Festival

If you are a live music fan who loves big festival experiences that are one of a kind and totally unique, then Coachella is an event that you really need to attend. Occurring annually at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, this music and arts festival is traditionally a three day event in April that features a wide range of several different genres of music that includes Rock, Pop, Hip-Hop and Electronica and that has run since 2001...

Artists who have featured in previous years include Eminem, Prince, Sir Paul McCartney and Rage Against The Machine amongst many others and this year’s most notable and talked about event yet saw one of the first ever projected holograms take the stage for a performance. During the course of Dr.Dre and Snoop Dogg’s set, a projection of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur appeared for a unique, one of a kind performance that left audiences gasping as Tupac performed his hits “Hail Mary” and “2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted” from beyond the grave. Though next year’s line-up has yet to be announced, there can be little doubt that organizers are already looking to top this years’ experience and the festival is due to be based over two consecutive weekends starting April 12-14 and ending on April 19-21.

Since 2002, Coachella has offered both on and off-site camping with luxury “Safari” tents available on-site that offer either one or two queen sized beds, a lounge area and real Air Conditioning. These are designed to provide festival goers with a luxury hotel experience whilst still offering the experience of camping. Many very decent and reasonable hotel packages are also available and the festival even provides a coach service for those residing in neighboring hotel accommodation with pre-determined drop off/ pick-up points convenient to the festival.

Recently it was announced that Coachella was also returning for two weekends in December of this year when the festival is due to take over the cruise ship Celebrity Silhouette. Artists already confirmed for this unique event include Pulp, Hot Chip and D.J Harvey with many more due to be announced. The cruise ship is part of the World renowned luxury Solstice class and features 12 dining venues, 9 bars and multiple live music settings amongst its attractions. This looks to be the most unique Coachella experience yet and advanced sales are proving to be snapped up quickly indeed!

Overall, Coachella is looking to be a festival set to go from strength to strength in future years and an event not to be missed by hardcore festival fans. And travel to California has never been easier with lots of reasonably-priced regular flights now available from Heathrow Airport and Stansted Airport!
