Coachella 2017 Weekend Recap
Posted on 28 April 2017
If you're active on social media, you might have seen a post (or ten) about Coachella 2017 this month. Just as it does every year, Coachella attracted thousands of people to the desert for a weekend of arts and music from various genres. While we saw the return of some crowd favorites such as Radiohead, The XX, Kendrick Lamar, and Lorde, there was also some new artists to join the lineup from household names like Lady Gaga to upcoming artists such as Mura Masa. What makes Coachella groundbreaking is that it was the pioneer of music festivals to have a lineup of talent from all over the musical spectrum, which makes it a perfect weekend for music discovery. While it is the music that attracts crowds, the artists themselves have used the festival to bring out surprise guests, drop new singles, and perform remixes of their own songs and others. This is what elevates Coachella from simply just a music festival to theatrical performance art. If you weren't able to make it out to the festival this year, don't worry we have collected some of our favorite images from the festival along with a playlist to share with you. Enjoy!

Every year Coachella sets up art installations that are just as fun to look as they are for posing with for all those Instagram pictures. The Chiaozza Gardens by artist duo Chiaozza resembled something from a fictional story and made for a beautiful site at the festival grounds. At night time lights reflected off the statues giving them a completely new look.

The Do Lab returned to Coachella with their iconic colorful tents and made for the perfect place to catch some shade and dance to some electronic music. Another great feature of the Do Lab is ariel dancers which definitely added an entertaining twist!

When we say that the night time acts were lit, we also mean that literally. Usually the most popular headliners perform at night and draw in the largest crowds. Seeing crowds of people from all over come together for an artist truly displays the unifying power of music.
