My day at work yesterday went kinda like this:
Big Boss Man — “Here are tickets for Coachella, wanna cover it?”
Me — “ABSOLUTELY.”
BBM — “Cool. Here ya go, the rest is up to you.”
So that in a nutshell is how I ended up here in the middle of the desert in Indio, CA, with no set place to stay, no plan, and pure excitement. And that’s where you come in, this is my first big music festival, and I need some suggestions on what to do and see while I’m here. Help! Coachella, bring it on…
Ello, AMP readers, this is Britt. You may remember me from such mediocre posts as American Idol and the Twitter Wars saga. I somehow scored the coolest opportunity to go out and cover California’s biggest music festival, COACHELLA. So I’ll be out in the sweltering desert to get you guys an inside look at some of the biggest musical acts around right now.
I haven’t had much time to plan anything yet, I’m going into this with no clue on what to expect, but all I know is it’s going to be an action-packed weekend. Here are the bands I have slated to see today, but I need more suggestions from you on what to do and see, share them below!
3 pm: [lastfm]Wale[/lastfm]
3:30 pm: [lastfm]Sleigh Bells[/lastfm]
8 pm: [lastfm]Grizzly Bear[/lastfm]
10 pm: [lastfm]Vampire Weekend[/lastfm]
11 pm: [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm]
I’m definitely going to try to squeeze more in throughout the day, but I’m stoked to see Jay-Z tear the place down and get my hipster groove on to some of my favorite bands right now! It’s going to be exhausting, but I can sleep when I’m dead, right?
I’ll be posting pictures and updates throughout the day, so check back to get the latest from the Coachella headquarters! Let’s do this.
“Young Forever” Jay-Z
