Who, what, where, when, why (Coachella edition)

It’s really quite simple.  I’ve said it before and I will probably say it again.

Get to Coachella.  If not this year, then next year.  And if not next year, then the year after that.  Plan it now.  You will not be disappointed.

Coachella co-founder Paul Tollett gave an enlightening interview this morning on KCRW which provides great insight on why the festival is truly a must-see for all music lovers.

This year marks the 10th anniversary and, while the headliners may not match the all-time roster, the fact is that the festival’s lifeblood is in the incredible number of great small- and medium-sized bands and DJ’s that fill the stages and tents over the three days of the festival. 

That coupled with the amazing setting and great care that Tollett and the Goldenvoice staff take in providing the best experience possible.

For a quick glimpse of what it is all about, check out this clip of Arcade Fire at the 2005 festival from the Coachella movie.  Even the excellent overview that the movie provides cannot match the experience of being there in-person.  Do it.

And check out the first issue of the Coachella Digital Magazine.  24 days and counting until this year’s version.
