[PLAYLIST] Coachella 2014
It's that time of year again! Coachella Festival is technically (at least in the LA-kid's world) the big kick-off event to start the US summer festival season, and really what better way to start it all than in the middle of the California desert in the deliciously hazy, sweltering heat.
We are not attending the festival this year, however our very wonderful WWM team member, Michelle will be there capturing all of the action. We thought it was only fitting to make a playlist of the top acts to see (in our humble opinion) if you are heading out in to the desert, this weekend or next. A bit of mothering advice - drink lots of water, lather on the sunscreen, keep your shirt ON and um... try not to let your weekend turn in to BROCHELLA*.
If we had to pick, some of the not-to-miss acts for the weekend (excluding headliners) would be: Young & Sick, Jagwar Ma, The Preatures, Warpaint, Washed Out, Bombay Bicycle Club, Syd Arthur, Daughter, Blood Orange, James Vincent McMorrow & Courtney Barnett.
*NB: We camped next to a group of bros last year. From memory, they had written 'BROCHELLA' on the side of their van in neon paint, they played awful rave music (none of these artists, we are pretty sure, were even on the 2013 line-up) until 5am with their van doors open, and at some point there was an almost-naked girl dancing on the top of their van. We are definitely not still bitter about this experience a whole year later...
