Coachella: The Craving and Creating of Festivals

For us Trippers in the Northern Hemisphere, festival season is finally here!! I am personally ecstatic because I am en route to my very first Coachella music festival in Indio, California! (I have dreamed of this day for seven years.) Three days of hot sun, cold beer, good company, and live music from all over the world. Does it get any better? Actually, it might...


In preparation for this epic event, I have memorized the lineup, listened to the old faves and new finds, coordinated transportation and accommodation, and of course, shopped! However, I have recently discovered so much more to be excited about. I owe this excitement to the workings of The Creators Project and all the preparation they have been doing for this weekend. Be warned: their website, blog and videos will suck you in and if you aren't about to attend this year's festival, you will experience unsolicited fascination with a side of extreme envy. So proceed with caution.


While I have been all about the music (and the clothes), now I am anticipating so much more to this wonderous weekend. Had I experienced my first Coachella when I was 18 years old, my ears may have been blown away by the sound, but my eyes would have missed out. This year, all senses get a treat thanks to the combined efforts of all artists. I think it's safe to say that it was worth the wait. I'll let you know...
