Coachella’s Livecast: Was It Worth Watching?

coachella

There are a lot of angles with which to discuss Coachella Live on Youtube.  I tried to check it out periodically over the weekend because, to my knowledge, this amount of live coverage of a festival hasn’t been attempted until now.  I saw a little bit of everything, and came away impressed in some areas and not so impressed in others.

It has now been a full week since I walked onto the Polo Fields of Indio, where Mitchell, Sean, and I arrived at our tent at 4 AM, demanding that the rest of the crew awaken to join us in celebrating our arrival and the weekend of fun, music, and debauchery ahead of us with some cold brews.

Last weekend was no exception, and I have found myself gravitating to the most memorable music from Coachella weekend, whether it was a part of the music festival or not.

How does one review a Coachella? It is hard because you are taking a weekend that is very much a personal experience that involves close friends, music, and the good times you create (or don’t). Some people go to try and catch as many concerts as possible in three days. Some merely use it as an opportunity to explore how many drugs they can fill their body with in three days.

Old farts go to feel young and seem hip. I even heard Bear Grylls showed up to film an episode of Man vs Festivals in order to properly demonstrate exactly how to drink copious amounts of alcohol in 108 degree weather without dying (I think the trick had something to do with mixing every drink with pickle juice). Personally, I only go for the Ferris wheel.
