10 Things - Coachella 2012

Sunday night wrapped up the final day of the annual Coachella music festival. Compiled of two identical, back to back weekends, Coachella brought a million people a day onto steamy polo grounds in Palm Springs, California. With headliners Radiohead, Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre and the Black Keys, in addition to the return of At The Drive In, and performances by another 60 bands, the line up was enough to sell out both weekends of the festival in just a few hours.

 

For me, it was an introduction to Coachella. Being from Chicago but living in LA, the past few years I’ve remained loyal to Lollapalooza. So when it comes time to buy a $300 concert ticket, I’ve stuck with the humidity stricken, lake front festival in the windy city. But last weekend on the invite of a friend, I not only got to go to Coachella, but I got to camp there. I am still trying to figure out if that was an opportunity or a punishment. Either way, it was a whole lot of fun and – whether I wanted to or not – I learned a few things along the way.
