To Coachella or Not to Coachella?

With the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival only a month a way, it’s time to decide whether to go or not. Tickets for the three-day event out in Indio, Calif. cost $270. Then there’s the camping cost — $55 for car or tent camping, $200 for an on site camping spot with gear provided by Coleman, an insane $5000 for a luxury safari tent (that’s for two, it’s $1000 for each additional person) and $79 for a hotel shuttle (keep in mind, that doesn’t include the price of the hotel).

Long story short, it’s a pricy adventure, so you better make sure it’s worth it. Fortunately, Coachella always manages to draw a staggering assortment of artists to the Southern California desert and this year is no exception. These are just some of the hits from the bajillion artists playing this year.
