Coachella 2016

We're a little over a week away from the 2016 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival! If you want to get specific it's only 8 days, 22 hours, and 23 minutes away (I wrote that on 4/6/16 at 2:59pm CST, you'll have to do the math from here on out...)! If you can't tell I'm just a tad bit excited to leave next weekend. I mean, how many times a year can you run off to the deserts of California and release your inner-hipster for the weekend? Well if you have a full time job anyways, not that many!

The lineup has been public for awhile now, but I figured I'd post it and see what people's thoughts were. I know many people would consider me a very "mainstream" music fan, so I probably only about 1/3 of the groups on the list. My musical horizons are in for a HUGE expansion next weekend! As for my "mainstream" tastes, I'm pretty excited to see:

  • Ellie Goulding
  • G-Eazy
  • Rae Sremmurd
  • Years & Years
  • Guns N' Roses
  • Ice Cube
  • A$AP Rocky
  • Calvin Harris
  • Major Lazer
  • The 1975
  • The Chainsmokers

I believe the key to an event like this is to go with people that have different tastes in music. I know for a fact my girlfriend Elizabeth listens to some off-the-wall stuff. You throw in a couple of her friends from Los Angeles (Yes, I'm referencing you Anna & Colin) who love EDM (Electronic Dance Music) and VOILA! You've got a radio loving, underground listening, rave crazed dream team of sorts.

Let's just say, It'll be one for the ages.
