The Coachella Music Festival has grown into one of the biggest outdoor art and music festivals in the United States, blending alternative, indie rock, electronica and hip-hop into its stellar lineups. The festival started back in 1999 when Paul Tollet and Rick Van Santen of Goldenvoice Productions brought together their idea of merging various musical genres. The inaugural show featured a compelling list of artists including Tool, The Chemical Brothers, Beck, Rage Against the Machine and Jurassic 5, but the concert ended up racking $800,000 worth of debt for Goldenvoice. As a result, the company was sold to Anschultz Entertainment Group, which brought back the festival in 2001 with headliner Jane's Addiction.
In addition to providing a wide range of lodging and accommodations, the Coachella Music Festival has also set up many additional comforts. There are shuttles that go to area supermarkets, a farmer's market, yoga classes and plenty of other engaging activities. Additionally, there is a food court with vegan and non-vegan food, a general store and plenty of water fountains on the grounds. Coachella appeals to artistic types - you can paint using iridescent paint in the Art in the Dark Workshop or try to create a craft out of discarded products in the Recycle Goods Workshop. With this impressive list of activities, attendees will have a hard time packing them all into one day. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Coachella Music Festival tickets.

Coachella Festival 1 1
Amazing service, would definitely recommend! I recently purchased Coachella tickets to the second weekend. I left it too just over two weeks before the festival to purchase them from Ticket City. Due to no fault than my own the tickets had not arrived at my apartment yet upon calling Ticket City (Sean) he helped me locate the tickets and redirect them to where I was staying. He kept me updated and dealt directly with Fedex. He was super helpful and was always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that I was able to attend. If you have any problems, Ticket City is extremely helpful, easy to get a hold of and made what was a scary situation a very pleasant experience. Thanks again, Coachella was amazing! April 25, 2012
