If you still think of music festivals as scruffy and unsophisticated raves, you are pretty wrong. They have now become havens of luxury, where you can spend $12,000 to enjoy a weekend of music. The festival season is upon us, and from April till the end of the summer we will have a wide range of choice. First up of the most over-the-top festival in the World is the Coachella.
Coachella | April 14-16 and April 21-23 in Indio, California
The line-up has been announced: Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, Lorde, The xx, Bon Iver and the very pregnant Beyoncé.
On April 14, 2017, one of the most famous festival opens its gates again. Thousands of music enthusiasts, fashionistas and celebrities will be en route to the Californian desert to celebrate music, art and life.
Over the years this festival have become bigger and better. It is the place to be, but if you desire to try a certain lifestyle, to be surrounded by “the right” crowd and to enjoy yourself like a celebrity for a weekend, then you must be very well willing to pay a certain amount to ensure a memorable VIP experience.
According to Coachella.com, the officially purchased VIP wristbands offer access to two VIP areas. The first one is a large VIP area next to the main stage, with organic food trucks, tents and ATMs within a relaxed and uncrowded atmosphere, and from there you have a view of the main stage. The other VIP area, called “Rose Garden”, is smaller and is on the other side of the festival grounds where you can enjoy a $225 four-course meal cooked by celebrity chefs.
If you want to live the festival in high style, you can choose to stay in the Safari, an exclusive area, away from all other on-site camping. It is a $7,500 air conditioned Shikar-style tent with free adjacent private parking lot.
You will also have access to festival “guest” viewing areas, golf cart transportation to festival stages, dedicated security, outdoor chairs, shade tents, outdoor lighting, games and everything you need to enjoy luxurious weekend of music.
Unfortunately, for this year passes are no longer available, but we can expect plenty of tweets and Instagram stories from the Coachella ground. Two months to go, the countdown has begun.
