For 17 straight years and no sign of stopping, Coachella, one of the largest music and arts festivals in the United States, went down in the hot California desert. That said, no matter how many times we attend (8x, but who’s counting), the festival always finds new ways to surpass our expectations. From the eclectic music selection to the larger-than-life art installations, what is there honestly not to love?
Coachella first gained momentum and credibility because of its emphasis on musical artistry instead of radio pop charts (hard to believe the company struggled to survive financially during the first two years). Since then, the crowd has grown tremendously, and the festival has evolved into a music and fashion mecca; an indispensable part of the Southern California experience.
During the three consecutive days of fun, chaos, and all sorts of crazy entertainment that take place inside of the festival grounds, there is no end to the activities sprawled outside in the 100 square miles around the Empire Polo Fields where fortune 500 companies have taken a liking to sponsoring out-of-this-world parties.
This year, we were fortunate to be invited to the Bootsy Bellows pool party, hosted by McDonalds and Chevrolet where - you guessed it - guests are picked up in Corvettes and fed french fries at the Bootsy Bellow Estate. Teenage style icons Kylie and Kendall Jenner were in attendance seeking shade under the VIP canopies. Off in the distance we spot The Weekend and not far from him, Bella Hadid. Pinch us because we still can’t believe this is real. Well, it’s as real as it is exclusive but let us tell you - worth it!
