The Coachella Festival, held every year in Indio, California, has a reputation for brining in many amazing bands and packing them into a three day weekend. This year is no exception, with bands such as LCD Soundsystem, Spoon, Mew, Camera Obscuara, The xx, Phoenix, Girls, Major Lazer, and a newly reunited Pavement being among the many bands that I am excited about. The festival runs April 16-18, and three-day passes are $269 without service charge, way too much for a college student in Texas to attend. Then again, being here in Austin, we do get South by Southwest. More on that later. For now, here is the poster as is posted on the festival’s website. Start saving now!
