The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual three-day music and arts festival, founded by Paul Tollett, organized by Goldenvoice, and held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley. The event features many genres of music, including rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic music, as well as large sculptural art. Across the grounds, several constructed stages continuously host live music for the duration of the festival. The main stages are: Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, and the Sahara Tent (2006 and 2011 also featured the addition of a smaller Oasis Dome).
The festival is renowned for showcasing many popular and emerging musical artists, as well as established artists and reunited groups. Notable appearances include: Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, Prince, Paul McCartney, Arcade Fire, The Killers, Duran Duran, Radiohead, Oasis, Daft Punk, Roger Waters, Madonna, The Cure, Florence and the Machine, Kanye West, The Black Keys, Rage Against the Machine, Beck, Gorillaz, Björk, Nine Inch Nails, The Strokes, The Chemical Brothers, Pavement, Blur, MGMT, The White Stripes, Jay-Z, Tool, The Prodigy, Beastie Boys, Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Bon Iver.
The Coachella Music Festival takes place in a desert setting (the city of Indio is a part of the California Desert), with daytime temperatures frequently rising to over 110 °F (43 °C). Yikes!
