If you’re anything like me (and I pray to God, you’re not), an event like Coachella annoys the living hell out of you. Not present anywhere in my soul is the need to connect with 75,000 or so of my fellow human beings, rather disdain for the heat, the stench of B.O., and the stark reality that there was never a scenario where I’d be anywhere near the stage, instead, forced to watch the entire event on large monitors stationed on the outskirts of the audience pool.
Also, I’m really cheap. ($375 a ticket!? Fuck that.)
Thankfully, misanthropes – such as myself – have the internet to sooth our Coachella-curiosity. This weekend’s three-day long festival was also simulcast on YouTube, meaning plenty of streams are now archived to relive again and again.
So, after the break, enjoy a curated list of sets from this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
