If you have been scouring the internet off late or stalking celebrities on Instagram, the one buzz-word that everyone is talking about is Coachella! While most of us are mesmerized by the picturesque locales and serious fashion inspiration, not many know that Coachella is actually the popular term for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival.
Coachella is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley. The event features many genres of music, including rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic dance music, as well as art installations and sculptures. Across the grounds, several stages continuously host live music.
Coachella typically takes place over 2 or 3 weekends in the month of April, and is one of the largest and most successful Arts and Music festivals in the United States. It takes place in the Colorado Desert and draws crowds from all over the country irrespective of the scorching heat.
Rings a bell? Dubai, which houses people from all over the world with varied tastes yet a common sentiment of living life to the fullest – would gladly lap up a concept like Coachella. Revving up those hummers and 4 wheels drives for a music fest held in the middle of the desert? Hell yeah! The city has witnessed Live performances by a gamut of international stars in the past, and having a chance to watch so many of them in action over the Emirati weekend would be nothing short of a thrilling experience!
There is no other book that the city loves, more than the Guinness Book of World Records. And if Coachella happened in Dubai, you would expect to see more and more records created and broken every year. Longest live performance, tallest guitar figurine, largest turnout of international artistes, world’s largest LED display for a music concert relayed on none other than the Burj Khalifa – you name it.
And when it comes to fashion, the city will get yet another reason to strut it’s love for labels, with scores of fashionistas turning up in their best bits! Comfort is key in this Dubai heat, and you would expect them to keep it chic and short for Coachella. Take cue from what our most loved style icons are wearing for this year’s festival.
