Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival

Fashion, celebrities, music and flower crowns are some of the things many people associate with Coachella. Stars such as Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Bella Thorne, Kaia Gerber, Emily Ratajkowski and Brooklyn Beckham all appear in the latest styles for the festival. This year Coachellians will be listening to musicians such as Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, BANKS, Bastille, Lorde, Galantis, Tove Lo and Kiiara.

Previously, artists such as Kid Cudi, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, The Lumineers, Of Monsters of Men, The Vaccines, Lana Del Rey and the Killers have performed at The Governors Ball. The Governor’s Ball was created when Jordan Wolowitz and Alex Young were growing up and always saw festivals come and go. They finally decided that they wanted to create a music festival in the city so it would be a convenience to everyone.

Lollapalooza is one of the top music festivals along with Coachella and Bonnaroo. Some rumored performers are Chance the Rapper, Daft Punk, Foo Fighters, Galantis, Guns N’ Roses, Lorde, Tove Lo and Vampire Weekend. The lineup is expected to be released over the summer.
