Here’s some of the key musical acts performing at Coachella this year:

There will be plenty more acts to art events to see and hear at this years event.
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival used to be a three-day held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley (hence the name) The best thing about Coachella is that it features MANY genres of music including rock, indie, Hip Hop and electronic music as well as large sculptural art.
There are always several stages/tents set-up throughout the grounds, each playing different genres continuously, so there is always something for everyone’s different tastes. Back on May 31 of last year, Goldenvoice announced that the festival will be held over two separate weekends, starting in 2012.
The Coachella Festival location is set in the desert (part of the California Desert), which means festival goers will need to consume a lot of water as temps frequently hit over 100 degrees during the day, with no clouds and few places to find shade.
