The final countdown has begun and nothing makes us more antsy than knowing only a few more days of school work stand between us and our unofficial “holiday weekend.” Last week, the city of Indio granted approval for Goldenvoice to extend their annual music festivals on the polo fields through 2030 and also expand to hold 15,000 more attendees by next year. As loyal Coachella fans rejoice over the news, we couldn’t be more excited to return to the holy land. By now we’re checking off what to pack and who to see, aside from mentally preparing for the heat waves that await us, BUT before we hit the road…we leave you with one more cheat sheet to festival success!
The sun is shining, heat waves are approaching, and wristband packages continue to flood our instagram feeds stamped with hashtag Coachella…With Miami Music Week and Ultra coverage coming to an end, we welcome Coachella 2013 with open arms and offer festival goers a two hour mixtape to get you acquainted with this year’s boast worthy lineup! We recently caught up with Los Angeles native and progressive house up and comer Sean Wallace when he released his perfectly composed and bass heavy “Denzal Park VS Chase & Status” mashup and since then, he’s been on that studio grind to deliver fans something special. Jam-packed with our most anticipated acts from every niche and genre, this mix offers something for everyone and we’re hoping it will inspire both Coachella veterans and rookies to venture out and expand their musical taste as they map out their 3 day weekend!
