This past weekend marked the start of Coachella 2012. The huge music festival in Southern California that happens each spring features music from all sorts of genres: rap, hip hop, indie, techno, pop, electro, R&B.... the list goes on. To top it all off, everyone camps out around the festival site, making it the biggest sleepover you could imagine in the middle of the California desert.
While I wish I was there enjoying the two weekend long insanity, I'm afraid I am still stuck in Pennsylvania going to class, doing work, and all that the grad school party entails. However, I'm happy to report that there are plenty of opportunities to live vicariously through the festival goers! Check out some of my current favorite clips and stories from Coachella 2012...
Tupac was brought back as a hologram?
Fitz and the Tantrums performed the ever-catchy "Moneygrabber"
Andrew Bird's romantic strings
The talented front woman for St. Vincent jammed out to "Cruel"
Bon Iver (or is it Bonny Bear?) played a dreamy version of "Minnesota, WI"
Plus plenty more musical wonders that you can watch by live stream. Enjoy the temporary mental vacation to Southern California!
