Like everything, things evolve and that includes Coachella. I first attended the festival in Indio five years ago and things are very different today. Every year it seems EDM and hip-hop have an expanding presence at the festival. Though neither are favorites of mine, I can appreciate a good variety of music. This year’s lineup took a lot of criticism and some said the worst in years, though every Coachella I have attended never disappoints. This one did not. Having been to many festivals across the world I can honestly say Coachella is a model for how to put on a festival. Despite the increased corporate presence, Coachella runs like a well-oiled machine. It may be in fashion to knock it, but there’s no denying any festival is as good as you make it.
