Coachella – What’s Happening At This Year’s Festival?

Honestly, does it matter? Coachella is epic every year, and this year promises to be no different! If you’re still wondering about going, you obviously haven’t booked yourself on a commercial flight yet. Luckily for you, there is always the option to fly in on your own private jet from Exclusive Charter Service, which would fit right into the musical extravagance that is Coachella.

The festival takes place in Indio, California.  There are palm trees, distant mountains, an average high of 86 degrees Fahrenheit – but that’s not what makes Coachella so addictive. The grand thing about Coachella is that it really doesn’t matter what kind of music you like. There’s a little something for everyone. Pop or EDM, country or heavy metal – Coachella hosts bands and singers across the spectrum.

Some of the acts that are expected to rock loud and large at Coachella 2016 include Grammy nominee Courtney Barnett, Bright Lights blues singer Gary Clark Jr. and Ice Cube. As it promises to be a good day, maybe Ice Cube’s N.W.A pals will show up too. Of course, the reunited Guns ‘n’ Roses are going to be legendary as headliners. Slash and Duff McKagan, are back and the magic waiting to happen is almost beyond the ken of imagination.

Take a moment please. *Breathe*

Another reunion to look out for is LCD Soundsystem – back after a five-year hiatus. They are headlining. Some major dance acts to look out for include Calvin Harris, Disclosure, Zedd, M83, Major Lazer and Flume. Skillrex and Diplo are going to be there as well.  And 2016’s a first for Jack Ü, so they’ll definitely be bringing their A-game.

Then there are the women artists who are looking stronger than ever before. Halsey I, who sold-out Madison Square Garden, has a rabid fan base and is going to make some noise. Then there’s Ellie Goulding who is cranking out hit after hit, Yellow flicker beat Lourde, who likes to hop up on stage during other people’s sets, and Lana Del Rey, who’s certainly heating things up (as if Coachella needed to get any hotter). Songwriter-singer Sia can be expected to do the unexpected and maybe obscure her face on stage. Oh wait! That’s expected of her…

Other performers who are rumored to be coming up with new albums include M83, The Kills, Run The Jewels and Rhye. And when you’ve had just enough and need to soak in the setting sun, Sufjan Stevens will follow former Coachella artists Bon Iver and The Shins with some soft music.

Really, there’s so much music happening it’s almost impossible to not find the kind of music that keeps the music burning in your head. In addition, Indio, California has the clearest bluest skies, and Coachella attracts A-list celebrities. Last year saw Kylie Jenner, Paris Hilton, Jaden Smith, Diane Kruger and Nina Dobrev make an appearance. Leonardo di Caprio was spotted fist pumping at the Neon Carnival and pretty much unable to resist the energy and the music.

Coachella hosts one of the most diverse and exciting music line-ups of the season and some unique art installations. Coachella is so awesome it merits flying in on your own private jet from Exclusive Charter Service. So, what are you waiting for?
