Coachella is a music festival in the Coachella Valley in Southern California 

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is held in Indio, California each April. The festival began in 1999 and has been a success ever since, barring a few hiccups. The lineup is stacked with rock, indie, hip-hop, dance, and more. Headliners are almost always a hit. But how long are the performances? Here are some of the details. Read on to learn how to get there and where to stay. 

It is open to all ages 

On Friday, the Outdoor Theatre will host the first act of the weekend: Flume. This will be followed by Megan Thee Stallion and Billie Eilish. Flume is the most anticipated performance of the weekend. Flume will headline the show at 8:35 p.m., while Megan Thee Stallion will perform at 10:05 p.m. and Billie Eilish will close out day two at 11:30 p.m. 

It lasts for two weekends 

The second weekend at Coachella is packed with explosive acts. Special guests and new music filled the bill. SiriusXM hits got a live set, and Billie Eilish performed an acoustic cover of Paramore’s “Misery Business.” 

It has a strict radius clause 

In addition to limiting outside festivals from scheduling artists, the radius clause that accompanies Coachella performances can make the scheduling process for artists more difficult. The enactment of such a clause is contrary to state law, which forbids restrictions on competition among festivals. A court ruling is expected to make the clause unenforceable. The plaintiffs are seeking a ruling that the clause is unconstitutional. 

It has an AI-generated hologram as a guest artist 

Holograms are images produced through the interference of light beams and are often made up of many objects. In recent years, artists such as Tupac Shakur have become popular as hologram guests at concerts. The team that recreated Tupac’s hologram for Coachella 2012 used thousands of images of the late rapper and body scans of other people to create the hologram. The holograms are being developed using AI, but there are still some skeptics about whether these artists should be represented in such a manner. 

It has a glamping area 

If you’ve ever been to a music festival, you’ve probably heard about Coachella, but you might not know that the entire festival is a glamping experience. There’s even a glamping area at this year’s festival, where luxury tents and RVs are available for rent. Located behind the main festival venue, Safari Campground is surrounded by lush palm trees and mountain views, and offers amenities such as private bathrooms and golf cart shuttles to the stages.
