As Coachella kicks off this Spring Break, festival goers are excited after the announcement of this year’s highly anticipated artist lineup. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival takes place in Indio, California for two weekends and offers performances from the music industry’s top artists and extraordinary art structures to add to the upbeat theme of Empire Polo Field. 

The three day festival has many famous artists performing everyday, with headliners for April 10th and 17th including Calvin Harris, Big Sean, Brockhampton, and Megan Thee Stallion. Headliners on April 11th and 18th include Travis Scott, Flume, 21 Savage, DaBaby, and Roddy Ricch. The final days of the weekend festival, April 12th and 19th, include Frank Ocean, Lana Del Ray, Lil Uzi Vert, and Lil Nas X. Coachella has a venue for every type of music fan, however, some attend just for the experience. Sophomore Sophine Kevorkian said, “It’s one of the biggest festivals in the world, so people come to have fun and for the experience. It’s not necessarily about the artists [who are performing].” 

According to Coachella.com, General Admission passes start at $429, while VIP Festival Passes cost $999. With Preferred Parking for $140, festival goers may also purchase the General Admission + Shuttle Combo for $504. Other festival passes are available on the festival’s website. Sophomore Landon Watson said, “The price of the ticket is worth it because the memories you’ll make with your friends there are priceless.” Coachella invites any person, young or old, to come and have a great time.
