Coachella is typically the most sought after festival of the year. It begins on April 14 and ends April 23, and is held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California and people paid between $399 to $899 to attend.. Coachella gives people the opportunity to see many of their favorite artists perform live in a single weekend and attracts a huge crowd of about 125,000 young people looking for fun. Some famous artists that performed this year include Kendrick Lamar, Lil Uzi Vert, Kehlani, and many more.
Senior Matthew Horwitz attended Coachella and was asked what the experience was like:
Was this your first time going?
This was my first time going and it was definitely worth it. The whole atmosphere of the event was very upbeat and everybody seemed really happy to see some of their favorite artists perform.
What were some of your favorite artists that performed?
I can’t say I had a favorite artist who performed just because so many of my favorites were there. One of the best ones was Kendrick Lamar. He didn’t just rap for us, he put on a show. What made his show intriguing were the songs he performed and he even brought out Travis Scott which got everyone really hyped.
What artists would you want to see next year?
I think Kodak Black would’ve been fun to see. Some classic rock groups would be awesome to see too.
How do you think could Coachella improve next year?
I thought it was perfect. The only thing I would like to see is if they could maybe add a couple more tents for shade, other than that, it lived up to everything I imagined it would be. I loved it.
