Warm weather and sunshine are making their way back into our lives and that means music festival season is upon us. With the high demand for live music and the benefits of performing in vast outdoor venues, just about any musician you can think of is bound to be on a festival roster. Pop music and style have always intersected in one way or another, and music festivals are no exception. Festivals have become true events showcasing not only music, but fashion as well. The most notable musical festival of the past decade has undoubtedly been the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Coachella is a two-weekend music festival that takes place in mid April in Indio, California. The performance rosters of both weekends are usually very impressive. If you find yourself attending a festival such as Coachella, it’s important to make sure of one thing: wear something comfortable. Sure, you want to stay true to your style. That’s totally understandable. But you may want to rethink wearing those high platform shoes or that trendy leather skirt. The average April daytime temperature in Indio is about 90 degrees Fahrenheit. And you must keep in mind that Coachella is a large multi-area festival, so you will do some walking. In. That. Heat.
