As you may know by now, I went to Coachella two weekends ago. While it already feels like an eternity ago, I’m still basking in the festival afterglow. It may have been the company of my two best friends, or near perfect weather, or performances by LCD Soundsystem, Ice Cube (NWA Reunion!) and Disclosure, but this may have been my best Coachella yet. Three years down, and I’m still overwhelmed by the sensations – you are treated to a feast of people watching, music, art, food and fashion. My pictures don’t do the energy justice, but I wanted to share my favorite photos of the fest.
Maybe my favorite pic of the trip – we made multiple trips to the popsicle stand.
Upon arriving, we were greeted by a dust storm and alien desert landscape. The bandanas couldn’t prevent a Coachella-cough, but they did make for some great Mad Max-esque photos.
Each year I look forward to the different art installations. Besame Mucho was a fan and instagram favorite.
Coachella hair, don’t care.
I swear, I think the lighting is just more flattering in California. We took too many Ferris wheel selfies to count. I just love the pure joy on our faces – festival love!
Sunset is by far the best time to catch a show. Some of my favorite sets were at that time – Chvrches, Disclosure and The 1975.
I introduced my friend M to In n Out. The experience was legendary. I don’t know if we were just ravenous from the day of travel, but we inhaled the burgers in silence punctuated with shameless “OH MA GAH”s.
The Outdoor Stage was marred by sound issues during the Cold War Kids and Edward Sharpe sets, but it still made for great photos.
Another epic sunset. Living in California, I definitely took these for granted. I made sure to take in my fill that weekend, especially when you have a picturesque carnival ride dotting the skyline.
My forever friends L and M! They met each other for the first time that weekend, and there is no better feeling than your besties also becoming friends. Literally the best friends to travel with – no drama and always ready for an adventure.
Another great art installation, that also provided a shady spot to rest.
Girl gang! I always say this will be my last Coachella since it’s so expensive, but every year I’m reminded of why I’m so addicted. I can’t wait to make my desert return!
