Taking place in the iconic Empire Polo Field in Indio, Southern California, Coachella is widely considered to be among the most exciting and dynamic popular music festivals in the world. Attracting visitors from far and wide each year, this desert-based festival features headlining acts plucked from the wishlists of music fans across the globe, and always promises to be a truly unforgettable adventure in the sun-baked and expansive festival site.
With the headline acts just released, Frank Ocean is expected to be the main draw at Coachella 2023.
This year’s festival is also set to feature Calvin Harris, Bad Bunny, BlackPink, Björk, Porter Robinson, and hundreds more coveted performers. Coachella’s organizers take deep pride in showcasing the very best of the global popular music scene. However, it’s not all about the music. The world’s most Instagrammable festival also features amazing hospitality options, incredible dishes from an array of talented street food chefs, all-night discos, mind-expanding esoteria and the chance to soak up the atmosphere at this undeniably iconic event.
Due to its relatively remote location, there isn’t much of an afterparty scene at Coachella. However, the music never stops within the festival site, and no matter your taste or style, you’ll find something to enjoy while there.
Should you be sticking around the following weekend, you’ll find plenty of luxurious pool parties and events in the wake of the festival; SHEIN’s all-day event and Coachella-adjacent party Zeuphoria at Zenyara Estates has gained legendary status, and Soho Desert House brings its oasis to the desert for an RSVP event like no other.
