Event Highlight: Coachella
Posted by Veronica Hodur on April 12, 2017
Coachella is right around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited! This amazing festival may be best known for its musical lineups (Lady Gaga is set to perform this year) but it also celebrates artistry in all forms. Many sculptors are contracted to bring their largest pieces to litter the landscape. Past years have featured pieces that interacted with sound, light or even the desert itself with kinetic pieces that would sway in the wind.
This desert community that congregates once a year is filled with artists, fashionistas and culinary treats of all kinds! If you simply type 'Coachella' into Pinterest you will find dozens of inspiration boards to get the creative juices flowing. The outfits vary from comfortable shorts and floppy hats to ward off the desert heat to full neon designs elaborately painted as a sign of self-expression.
Performers of all kinds gather to show off their amazing skills, you can find hula-hoopers, stilt walkers or flying aerialists all over the beautiful desert backdrop. As well as plenty of others just dancing or having fun.
The festival is two weekends April 14-16th and April 21st-23rd. The tickets are sold out right now but if you are going or plan on going next year it’s never too early or too late to plan! You can take a look at their website here for more info and if you’re looking for sunhats or something a little more artistic we have tons of styles that would fit right in!
