So, it has been hot on the press this week but did any of you lucky people get to go? I think that the festival season has now officially been kicked off with this amazing festival.
Apparently 2Pac came back to life! http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1683238/tupac-coachella-hologram-.jhtml
Not sure if you saw this article. And as Jaguar has so kindly shown in another thread on the 'Grapevine' section, you can watch Coachella live! Yay!
What do you think of the 2Pac thing? In good taste? Or was it in bad? I am not sure...I guess if you are a big die-hard (excuse the pun) fan then it could be seen to be bad. But am sure the younguns of today thought it was amazing!
This is also a great article that lists all the surprises of the weekend http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/17/arts/music/part-1-of-coachella-festiva...
I didn't realise that many bands then go on to play clubs and things in LA after...it appears to be a great way for these bands to get their names out there!
It had such a diverse mix of people playing and I think that one of the things Coachella has become famous for is its celebrity following. I saw pictures in the paper of Katy Perry, Fergie and even Vanessa Hudgens. What does annoy me though is that because they are at a festival they all think that they have to act like hippies.
Not sure if any of you girls out there saw the pictures of Vanessa Hudgens outfits. They really were quite stupid! Sorry, but just because you are at a festival doesn't mean that you need to dress like you are taking LSD and act like a loser. Sorry, I sound really bitter don't I ?!
I don't mean to be, but you are there to listen to great acts and not to prance around looking like a reject from 'That 70's show'! Rant over...looking forward to hearing what you all have to say on the matter!
