Countdown to Coachella: 15 Days

It's that time of the year again--FESTIVAL SEASON! I live for festivals and now that SXSW is over, my next and most favorite music festival of all is upon us April 15, 16, and 17 in Indio, California--COACHELLA! Bands will continue to add to the line-up, and I am on the edge of my seat to see the last minute acts.

This year already appears to be a little different from last year, with the smaller amount of tickets being released, making it a complete sell-out within a week. The new high security wristband 3-day-only passes are going to make things quite interesting for pedestrians and attempted crashers with the new high security wristbands, as there will be security checks up to 1 mile around the perimeter. Meaning if you don't have a pass, you can't even get close this year. There are also some cool new promotions floating around, including H&M's Conscious Bus. Sign up for your chance to win a ride from LA to Coachella and back here.
In case you are still itching for tickets, there are still some online opportunities, but be prepared for quite a mark-up. Gilt City and Stub Hub are offering tickets well above %300 face value.

If you were smart and got your tickets right away, I will see you there. Below is the Coachella Grounds Legend to help you map out your journey. My must-see list is: Empire of the Sun, Robyn, Crystal Castles, Cut Copy, Two Door Cinema Club, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, CSS, and Foster the People.
