I’m back from my favorite place on the planet. I was in Indio, CA for the last 4 days at the Coachella Valley Music Festival. This shit was bananas I tell you. First off the fest sold out the week before which left a lot of people in a tizzy to scrape up a quick ticket, so the festival itself was just a mad house. Secondly, the line-up was ridiculous. The headliners, Jay-Z, Gorillaz, and Muse, were all artists people had been talking about playing at Coachella for years. Like every year, Coachella kicked my ass with its 90+ degree weather when I’m roaming from stage to stage for 10 hours. I will continue to talk about the festival more this week. I’ll be posting photos, hopefully some more exclusives, and clips from the likes of Club 75, Gorillaz, and more. You can’t see acts like this at any other festival, but Golden Bloggen is here to show you what you missed.
One of the biggest surprises 0f the festival was the late addition of Die Antwoord. The strange South African Youtube sensation stepped on the Coachella main stage late Saturday night for a 20-minute set. It was one of the best things at the festival. It’s inspiring that a small band can blow up on Youtube and then turn that into a legit music career. The rapping is a little off and a bit kitchy, but the beats hit hard, and that tiny girl can dance like a beast. They will also be playing at HARD’s M.I.A. show this July.
