Just a few hours away from the Los Angeles area in the Inland Empire, Coachella 2014 kicks off over two music-filled weekends in April.
Music lovers from all over Los Angeles and the entire state will congregate in the Palm Springs Desert over two weekends (April 11-13 and 18-20) to indulge their eclectic music tastes: musicians diverge between established headliners (OutKast and Beck) to emerging artists (Lorde and Zedd) to underground standouts (Skrillex and Neutral Milk Hotel).
Beyond the recognized all-stars, the outdoor music festival includes over 170 artists that promise to deliver surprises.
Tickets come in the form of 3-day Passes, and while the official website states the passes are already sold-out both weekends, fans can still find tickets via online ticket distributors, including StubHub, and Tickets Now, as pass-buyers resell their own passes. Buyers can expect to pay upwards of $350 for weekend passes, but prices vary according to the seller. Organizers encourage concertgoers to purchase shuttle passes in addition to 3-day passes, as the stages are remotely located in this desert venue.
The popularity of the Festival may be attributed to its combination of divergent music genres, including pop, rock, hip-hop and rap, and electronic, as well as its continuous yet separate stage performances.
