The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (commonly called Coachella or the Coachella Festival) is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, in the Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_0

It was co-founded by Paul Tollett and Rick Van Santen in 1999, and is organized by Goldenvoice, a subsidiary of AEG Presents. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_1

The event features musical artists from many genres of music, including rock, pop, indie, hip hop and electronic dance music, as well as art installations and sculptures. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_2

Across the grounds, several stages continuously host live music. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_3

The festival's origins trace back to a 1993 concert that Pearl Jam performed at the Empire Polo Club while boycotting venues controlled by Ticketmaster. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_4

The show validated the site's viability for hosting large events, leading to the inaugural Coachella Festival being held over the course of two days in October 1999, three months after Woodstock '99. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_5

After no event was held in 2000, Coachella returned on an annual basis beginning in April 2001 as a single-day event. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_6

In 2002, the festival reverted to a two-day format. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_7

Coachella was expanded to a third day in 2007 and eventually a second weekend in 2012; it is now held on consecutive three-day weekends in April, with the same lineup each weekend. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_8

Organizers began permitting spectators to camp on the grounds in 2003, one of several expansions and additions in the festival's history. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_9

Coachella showcases popular and established musical artists as well as emerging artists and reunited groups. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_10

It is one of the largest, most famous, and most profitable music festivals in the United States and the world. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_11

Each Coachella staged from 2013 to 2015 set new records for festival attendance and gross revenues. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_12

The 2017 festival was attended by 250,000 people and grossed $114.6 million. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_13

Coachella's success led to Goldenvoice establishing additional music festivals at the site, including the annual Stagecoach country music festival beginning in 2007, the Big 4 thrash metal festival in 2011, and the classic rock-oriented Desert Trip in 2016. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_14

History Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_0

Further information: Coachella Festival line-ups Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_15

On November 5, 1993, Pearl Jam performed for almost 25,000 fans at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_16

The site was selected because the band refused to play in Los Angeles as a result of a dispute with Ticketmaster over service charges applied to ticket purchases. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_17

The show established the polo club's suitability for large-scale events; Paul Tollett, whose concert promotion company Goldenvoice booked the venue for Pearl Jam, said the concert sowed the seeds for an eventual music festival there. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_18

Around 1997, Goldenvoice was struggling to book concerts against larger companies, and they were unable to offer guarantees as high as their competitors, such as SFX Entertainment. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_19

Tollett said, "We were getting our ass kicked financially. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_20

We were losing a lot of bands. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_21

And we couldn't compete with the money." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_22

As a result, the idea of a music festival was conceived, and Tollett began to brainstorm ideas for one with multiple venues. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_23

His intent was to book trendy artists who were not necessarily chart successes: "Maybe if you put a bunch of them together, that might be a magnet for a lot of people." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_24

While attending the 1997 Glastonbury Festival, Tollett handed out pamphlets to artists and talent managers that featured pictures of the Empire Polo Club and pitched a possible festival there. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_25

In contrast to the frequently muddy conditions at Glastonbury caused by rain, he recalled, "We had this pamphlet... showing sunny Coachella. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_26

Everyone was laughing." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_27

After scouting several sites for their festival, Tollett and Goldenvoice co-president Rick Van Santen returned to the Empire Polo Club during the Big Gig festival in 1998. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_28

Impressed by the location's suitability for a festival, they decided to book their event there. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_29

The promoters had hoped to stage their inaugural festival in 1998 but were unable to until the following year. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_30

On July 16, 1999, Goldenvoice announced that the Indio City Council had approved the festival and would provide $90,000 for services such as traffic control and public safety. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_31

The funds came with a guarantee of repayment from the promoter, as the city was keen to avoid incurring another loss; the previous year's Big Gig festival cost Indio $16,000 due to last-minute changes to the lineup and poor attendance. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_32

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was officially announced on July 28 with a preliminary lineup of 40 acts; tickets went on sale on August 7. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_33

Coachella's announcement came just one week after the conclusion of Woodstock '99, a festival in July 1999 that was marred by looting, arson, violence, and rapes. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_34

Goldenvoice's insurance costs increased 40% as a result and the company faced uncertainty regarding Coachella's tickets. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_35

Organizers were already aiming to provide a "high-comfort festival experience" for Coachella but rededicated themselves to those efforts after Woodstock '99. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_36

Advertisements boasted free water fountains, ample restrooms, and misting tents. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_37

Retrospectively, Tollett called the decision to announce a new festival just two months prior to staging it "financial suicide". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_38

1999, 2001–2002 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_1

On October 9–10, 1999, the inaugural Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was held. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_39

Headlining the event were Beck, Tool, and Rage Against the Machine; other acts included the Chemical Brothers, Morrissey, A Perfect Circle, Jurassic 5 and Underworld. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_40

Originally, promoters had hoped to make the event three days (Friday to Sunday) and even considered the UK group Massive Attack as the third-day headliner. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_41

The organizers strove to recreate European music festivals with small crowds in a great setting with plenty of turntables. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_42

By booking acts based on artistry rather than radio popularity, Coachella earned the title of "the anti-Woodstock". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_43

Tickets sold for $50 for each day; about 17,000 tickets sold for the first day, and 20,000 for the second, falling short of the overall attendance goal of 70,000. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_44

Attendees were offered free parking and a free bottle of water upon entrance. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_45

The event went smoothly, with the well-behaved crowd starkly contrasting with the violence that plagued Woodstock '99; the biggest challenges to Coachella concertgoers were temperatures exceeding 100 °F and the decisions of which of the 80-plus acts to attend. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_46

The festival was well regarded among attendees and critics; Pollstar named it festival of the year, and Robert Hilburn of the Los Angeles Times said that it "laid the foundation for what someday may be a legacy of its own". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_47

However, Goldenvoice lost $850,000 on the undertaking, forcing the promoter, in Tollett's words, to "struggle for almost two years to survive as a company". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_48

Prominent acts, including the headliners, agreed to receive deferred compensation. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_49

Goldenvoice reserved tentative dates for October 2000 to reprise the festival, but ultimately canceled for that year; Tollett blamed it on the oversaturation of music festivals in Southern California. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_50

Instead, Goldenvoice partnered with promoter Pasquale Rotella to stage the electronic dance music festival Nocturnal Wonderland at the Empire Polo Club in September 2000. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_51

Goldenvoice opted to bring Coachella back in April 2001 in an attempt to beat the heat. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_52

Ticket prices were raised to $65. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_53

Organizers encountered difficulty booking acts for the festival and due to "available talent", were forced to shorten the festival to a single day. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_54

Issues with securing a headliner threatened to doom the event until Perry Farrell agreed to bring his reunited group Jane's Addiction to the proceedings. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_55

Amidst financial concerns, Tollett agreed to sell Goldenvoice to Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) in March 2001 for $7 million. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_56

AEG, which had opened Staples Center in Los Angeles two years prior, purchased the promoter to help them find shows to book. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_57

The corporation wanted Tollett to continue staging Coachella, understanding that it initially would lose money; Tollett initially retained full control of Coachella as a result of the acquisition. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_58

Like its predecessor, the 2001 festival went smoothly; 32,000 people attended, and despite taking a loss again, Tollett estimates it was a "low, low six-figure sum". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_59

For its third outing, Coachella reverted to a two-day format and took place from April 27–28, 2002. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_60

Tollett said that the event was expanded to a second day after more acts began expressing interest in participating. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_61

With around 60 artists performing, the festival featured headliners Björk and Oasis, along with a reunion of Siouxsie and the Banshees. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_62

Palm Desert natives Queens of the Stone Age became the first local band to play the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_63

Multiple changes were made for that year: one less tent was used, reducing the number of stages from five to four, and a fence in the middle of the polo field was removed to increase the openness of the site. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_64

The strong supporting acts helped prove to the Indio community that the event could bring in money and take place without conflict. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_65

More than 55,000 people attended over the two days, and for the first time, the festival nearly broke even. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_66

2003–2005 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_2

The 2003 festival took place from April 26–27. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_67

Among the 82 acts booked by Goldenvoice were headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beastie Boys, as well as a reunited Iggy Pop and the Stooges. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_68

Performances were held on two outdoor stages and in three tents. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_69

Ticket prices remained $75 per day, but were increased to $140 for a two-day pass. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_70

For the first time, on-site camping was offered; the Indio City Council approved overnight camping at the site, permitting up to four people on each of the 2,252 camping spots. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_71

The festival drew 60,000 people, the largest Coachella crowd to that point. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_72

The festival began to develop worldwide interest and receive national renown. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_73

In late December 2003, Van Santen died at the age of 41 from flu-related complications. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_74

With Tollett left, he sold half of Coachella to AEG in 2004, along with the controlling interest in the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_75

The 2004 event featured a lineup of more than 80 acts, with Radiohead and the Cure as headliners, along with a reunion of the Pixies. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_76

It was Coachella's first sellout, drawing a two-day total of 110,000 people. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_77

For the first time, the festival attracted attendees from all 50 US states. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_78

The event was critically acclaimed; Hilburn called it "the premier pop music festival in the country", while Rolling Stone labeled it "America's Best Music Festival". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_79

Tollett said that 2004 was the turning point for Coachella, and he credited booking Radiohead with elevating the festival's stature and interest among musicians. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_80

However, he also described that year's event as a missed opportunity, as he passed on a chance to expand it to a third day that could have featured David Bowie as a headliner. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_81

The 2005 event ran from April 30 to May 1 and featured Coldplay and Nine Inch Nails as headliners, along with a reunion of Bauhaus. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_82

Approximately 50,000 people attended each day of the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_83

2006–2008 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_3

The 2006 event featured headliners Depeche Mode and Tool. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_84

Two of the most popular performances were Madonna, who played in an overflowing dance tent, and Daft Punk, whose show featuring a pyramid-shaped stage is cited as one of the most memorable performances in Coachella history. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_85

Around 120,000 concertgoers attended the event over two days, garnering Goldenvoice a gross of $9 million. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_86

In 2007, Goldenvoice inaugurated the Stagecoach Festival, an annual country music festival that also takes place at the Empire Polo Club the weekend following Coachella. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_87

The new event helped avert complications with organizing Coachella; the polo club's owner Alex Haagen III had been planning to redevelop the land unless a new profitable event could be created to make a long-term lease with Goldenvoice financially feasible. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_88

Along with the new festival's addition, Coachella was permanently extended to three days in 2007. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_89

The headlining acts were Red Hot Chili Peppers, the reunited Rage Against the Machine, and Björk, all of whom headlined for the second time. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_90

The festival compiled a three-day aggregate attendance of over 186,000, a new best, and grossed $16.3 million. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_91

In 2008, Coachella did not sell out for the first time since 2003. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_92

It featured headliners Prince, Roger Waters, and Jack Johnson. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_93

Waters' inflatable prop pig flew away during his set. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_94

The 2008 festival drew an attendance of 151,666 and grossed $13.8 million, but lost money, due to tickets not selling out and high booking fees paid for Prince and Roger Waters. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_95

2009–2011 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_4

The 2009 festival occurred a week earlier than usual. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_96

The new dates were April 17, 18 and 19. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_97

The event featured headliners Paul McCartney, The Killers, and The Cure. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_98

On Friday, McCartney blew past the festival's strict curfew by 54 minutes. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_99

Sunday, The Cure had their performance end abruptly, with the festival cutting stage power after passing their own curfew by 30 minutes. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_100

Notable performances included Franz Ferdinand, M.I.A. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_101

(whose 2005 encore set in a tent was a first at the fest), Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and rare appearances from artists Leonard Cohen, Dr. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_102 Dog and Throbbing Gristle. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_103

The festival drew an aggregate attendance of 152,962 and grossed $15,328,863. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_104

Organizers eliminated single-day ticket sales for 2010, and instead instituted a new policy offering three-day tickets only, which drew mixed reactions. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_105

Headliners included Jay-Z, Muse and Gorillaz, and reunions of Faith No More and Pavement. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_106

Despite Tollett's reservations about holding a festival in 2010 due to the economy, Coachella drew 75,000 spectators each day that year, for an estimated aggregate attendance of 225,000, surpassing previous records. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_107

Thousands of fans broke through fences, leading to concerns about overcrowding. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_108

The festival grossed $21,703,500. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_109

International travel was disrupted by the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland, resulting in some European acts, such as Frightened Rabbit, Gary Numan and Delphic, canceling their appearances at the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_110

Prior to the 2011 festival, Goldenvoice made several investments and improvements locally to help support Coachella. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_111

In addition to funding an additional lane for Avenue 50, which borders the festival, the promoter cleared additional space on the polo grounds by leveling a 250,000-square-foot area and moving horse stables. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_112

Lighting and security were also enhanced to help the festival run more smoothly. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_113

The headliners for that year's event were Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire, Kanye West, and The Strokes, along with another 190 supporting acts. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_114

The 2011 festival grossed $24,993,698 from 75,000 paid attendees, for an aggregate attendance of 225,000 across the entire three-day weekend. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_115

2012–2014 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_5

On May 31, 2011, Goldenvoice announced that beginning with the 2012 festival, Coachella would be expanded to a second, separately-ticketed weekend, with identical lineups for each. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_116

Explaining the decision, Tollett said that demand for tickets was up in 2011 even after "operations weren't the best [they've] ever had" in 2010 and that he did not want to satisfy that demand by allowing additional attendees to overcrowd the venue. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_117

Rolling Stone called it a "very risky move" and said there was "no guarantee that demand [would be] high enough to sell out the same bill over two consecutive weekends". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_118

Nonetheless, 2012 tickets sold out in less than three hours. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_119

The 2012 festival featured headliners the Black Keys, Radiohead, and a twin billing of Dr. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_120 Dre and Snoop Dogg. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_121

During the latter's performances, a projection of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur appeared on-stage (a voice actor performed his introduction lines) and began performing "Hail Mary" and "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_122

Although the media referred to the technology as a "hologram", the projection was in fact created using the Musion Eyeliner system, which employs a version of Pepper's ghost. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_123

Following the performance, the projection disappeared. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_124

Dr. Dre had asked permission from Shakur's mother Afeni, who said the next day that she was thrilled with the performance. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_125

A projection of deceased singer Nate Dogg was also planned, but Dr. Dre decided against it. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_126

The 2012 festival grossed $47,313,403 from 158,387 paid attendees across the two weekends; 80,726 tickets were sold for the first weekend, and 77,661 for the second. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_127

Prior to the 2013 festival, it was announced that Goldenvoice had reached a deal with the city of Indio to keep the Coachella and Stagecoach Festivals there through 2030. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_128

As part of the agreement, Indio's per-ticket share of revenue would increase from $2.33 per ticket to $5.01. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_129

Headlining the 2013 festival were Blur, The Stone Roses, Phoenix, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_130

General admission tickets sold for $349, a $34 increase from the previous year. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_131

The festival grossed $67.2 million in ticket sales and was attended by 180,000 people, making it the top music festival in the world. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_132

In July 2013, Goldenvoice finalized a $30 million purchase of 280 acres of land surrounding the Empire Polo Club, including the 200-acre Eldorado Polo Club. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_133

The land, previously leased from Eldorado, will be used to provide more space for parking and general use for the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_134

Tollett said the purchase was intended to "help [Goldenvoice] put in some infrastructure so [they] don't have to keep coming back and do the same things each year". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_135

The 2014 festival, held on April 11–13 and April 18–20, featured 184 artists. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_136

A reunited Outkast headlined on Friday, Muse on Saturday, and Arcade Fire on Sunday. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_137

General admission tickets sold out in less than 20 minutes, while all other tickets (including VIP tickets in excess of $5,000) sold out in less than 3 hours. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_138

That year's festival featured 96,500 daily attendees and grossed a record-breaking $78.332 million. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_139

For the fourth consecutive year, Coachella was named the Top Festival at the Billboard Touring Awards. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_140

2015–2017 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_6

The 2015 festival, held on April 10–12 and 17–19, featured headliners AC/DC, Jack White, and Drake, with a surprise appearance by Madonna during the latter's weekend one performance. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_141

General admission tickets again sold out in less than 20 minutes. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_142

The event established new records for tickets sold (198,000) and total gross ($84,264,264) for a festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_143

The festival won Pollstar's award for Major Music Festival of the Year, marking the 10th time in 11 years that Coachella had won the award. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_144

In March 2016, the Indio City Council passed a measure to raise the attendance cap for Coachella from 99,000 to 125,000, stipulating that the capacity would gradually be increased, giving the city time to accommodate the crowds. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_145

Goldenvoice increased the venue size by about 50 acres along Monroe Street, Avenue 50, Avenue 52, and Polo Road. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_146

The 2016 festival was held on April 15–17 and 22–24, and was headlined by a reunited LCD Soundsystem, a reunited Guns N' Roses (with original members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan), and Calvin Harris. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_147

Ice Cube's appearance featured a reunion of N.W.A. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_148 , while Guns N' Roses' first weekend performance featured a guest appearance from Angus Young of AC/DC, who headlined the previous year; the cameo occurred the same day that Rose was announced as the new singer for AC/DC. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_149

Weekend two was marked by several tributes to Prince, the 2008 headliner who died just prior to the weekend's shows. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_150

The festival sold 198,000 tickets and grossed $94.2 million. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_151

In January 2017, reports circulated that AEG owner Philip Anschutz had donated to many right-wing causes, including organizations promoting LGBTQ discrimination and climate change denial. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_152

The news led to calls for fans to boycott the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_153

Anschutz decried the controversy as "fake news", saying he would never knowingly contribute to an anti-LGBTQ organization and would cease donations to any such group of which he became aware. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_154

The 2017 edition of Coachella took place from April 14–16 and April 21–23, and featured Radiohead, Lady Gaga, and Kendrick Lamar as headlining artists. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_155

Beyoncé was originally announced as a headliner but was forced to withdraw at the advice of her doctors after she became pregnant; she announced that she would instead headline the 2018 festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_156

Tickets sold out within a few hours of going on sale. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_157

The event saw the debut of the new daytime-only Sonora tent. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_158

The 2017 festival drew 250,000 attendees and grossed $114.6 million, marking the first time a recurring festival grossed over $100 million. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_159

Between the two weekends of Coachella, scenes for the film A Star Is Born, starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, were filmed on the festival grounds. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_160

2018–present Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_7

The 2018 festival featured headlining performances from The Weeknd, Beyoncé, and Eminem. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_161

Making up for her cancellation the previous year, Beyoncé became the first African-American woman to headline the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_162

Her performances paid tribute to the culture of historically black colleges and universities, featuring a full marching band and majorette dancers, while incorporating various aspects of black Greek life, such as a step show along with strolling by pledges. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_163

The performances were also influenced by black feminism, sampling black authors and featuring on-stage appearances by fellow Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as well as sister Solange Knowles. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_164

Beyoncé's performances received immediate, widespread praise, and were described by many media outlets as historic. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_165

The New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica wrote, "There's not likely to be a more meaningful, absorbing, forceful and radical performance by an American musician this year, or any year soon, than Beyoncé's headlining set". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_166

Her performance garnered 458,000 simultaneous viewers on YouTube to become the festival's most viewed performance to date, and the entire festival had 41 million total viewers, making it the most livestreamed event ever. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_167

A report in Teen Vogue described "rampant" sexual harassment and assault at the 2018 festival, and the author said she was groped 22 times in 10 hours. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_168

In response, Goldenvoice announced a new initiative in January 2019 called "Every One", which comprises "fan resources and policies" to combat sexual misconduct and improve the festival's responses to such behavior. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_169

"Safety ambassadors" were made available to direct attendees to professional counselors, and specially marked locations were added for attendees to seek services or report incidents of sexual misconduct. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_170

One of the program's goals stated, "We are taking deliberate steps to develop a festival culture that is safe and inclusive for everyone". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_171

Coachella celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2019. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_172

Taking place from April 12–14 and 19–21, the festival was headlined by Childish Gambino, Tame Impala, and Ariana Grande. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_173

At 25 years old, Grande became the youngest artist to headline the festival and just its fourth female headliner. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_174

The festival was beset with several challenges. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_175

Justin Timberlake was reportedly slated to headline but had to cancel after bruising his vocal cords. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_176

Goldenvoice was also forced to abandon plans for Kanye West to headline, as they could not accommodate his request to build a giant dome for his performance in the middle of the festival grounds. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_177

West was instead allowed to hold the first public "Sunday Service" performance on Easter on April 21 at the venue's campgrounds. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_178

West and a gospel choir performed an approximately 33-song set list of his songs as well as classic R&B and gospel covers. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_179

The first weekend of the festival suffered audio technical difficulties with several high-profile performances. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_180

The following weekend, The Daily Beast published a report of the alleged "inhumane treatment" of the festival's security guards. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_181

The workers cited poor tent conditions, insufficient food and water, long hours in the harsh sun, minimum wages, and poor communication and coordination between the organizers and the subcontracting security firms. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_182

The 2020 festival was originally scheduled to take place on April 10–12 and April 17–19 with Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott, and Frank Ocean as the headlining acts. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_183

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival was initially postponed until October 9–11 and October 16–18, but in June, Riverside County public health officers announced it and Stagecoach had been cancelled altogether. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_184

On April 10, a documentary profiling the festival's 20-year history, Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert, was released on YouTube to coincide with the original start date of the 2020 event. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_185

Location and festival grounds Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_8

Coachella takes place in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire region's Coachella Valley within the Colorado Desert. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_186

Temperatures during the festival's history have ranged from 106 °F (41 °C) on April 21, 2012, to 43 °F (6 °C) on April 14, 2012. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_187

The festival is hosted at the 78-acre Empire Polo Club; when accounting for land used for parking and camping, the event covers a footprint of approximately 642 acres. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_188

The site is about 125 miles east of Los Angeles. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_189

During the festival, several stages continuously host live music. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_190

Two outdoor stages are used, along with several tents named after deserts. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_191

The primary stages that have been in use since Coachella's inception are: Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_192

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_unordered_list_0

  • Coachella Stage – the main stage that draws the largest crowds. This outdoor stage is where the headlining acts perform.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_0_0
  • Outdoor Theatre – a smaller outdoor stage adjacent to the Coachella StageCoachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_0_1
  • Mojave – a mid-size tent named after the Mojave Desert that hosts acts across multiple genres and varying stages of development. In 2017, it was moved behind an access road. A year later, it received further changes, as it was enlarged and moved again, this time to the Sahara's previous spot near the rose garden.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_0_2
  • Gobi – a mid-size tent named after the Gobi Desert that hosts acts across multiple genres and varying stages of development. Like the Mojave, it was moved behind an access road in 2017.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_0_3
  • Sahara – a large, hangar-like tent named after the Sahara Desert. It generally hosts the top electronic dance music acts. In 2013, the tent was expanded in size, reaching a height of 80 feet. Further changes were made in 2018, as it was built 25 percent larger and relocated west from the row of tents near the Empire Polo Club's rose garden to a spot on the Eldorado Polo Club near the festival entrance. The new location offers more shade and alleviates issues with foot traffic. The stage was also moved from one of the open ends of the structure to one its sides, allowing a wider field of view to attendees.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_0_4

Additional performance areas have been added over time, including: Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_193

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_unordered_list_1

  • Yuma – a small indoor tent introduced in 2013 that primarily hosts emerging DJs. The tent was intended to be "a sophisticated space that dials down the noise and strobe lights in favor of thoughtful sounds and underground acts".Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_1_5
  • Sonora – a small indoor tent introduced in 2017 to host punk rock and Latin actsCoachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_1_6
  • Heineken House – a small venue introduced in 2014. It was dedicated to "legendary musical performances" and "live mash-ups from a wide array of musical artists". Originally designed as a walled structure to provide a club-like atmosphere, it was redesigned in 2019 to feature an open beer garden layout with a slanted roof, eliminating the long waiting lines and giving more visibility to attendees.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_1_7
  • Despacio – a small indoor tent used in 2016. Co-created by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, the venue played "slow-simmering disco and vintage club music" on vinyl with the intention of creating a joyful setting. It featured a 50,000 watt sound system and air conditioning.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_1_8
  • Antarctic – an indoor dome introduced in 2017 to screen 360-degree immersive videos. The structure is 120 feet in diameter, features 11,000 square feet in projection space and air conditioning, and can seat 500 people. Obscura Digital produced the film shown in 2017.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_1_9
  • Oasis Dome – used in 2006 and 2011Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_1_10

Art Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_9

In addition to hosting live music, Coachella is a showcase for visual arts, including installation art and sculpture. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_194

Many of the pieces are interactive, providing a visual treat for attendees. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_195

Throughout the years, the art has grown in scale and outrageousness. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_196

Paul Clemente, Coachella's art director since 2009, said, "I think the level of detail and finish and artistry and scale and complexity and technology, everything is constantly getting notched up, ratcheted up. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_197

We're obviously constantly trying to, for lack of a better word, (to) outdo ourselves and make it better for the fans." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_198

In Coachella's early years, art was mostly recycled from the previous year's Burning Man festival, due to smaller budgets. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_199

Between 2010 and 2015, Goldenvoice shifted its focus from renting pieces to commissioning them specifically for the festival, increasing their budget. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_200

Artists are given access to the grounds just 10 days before the festival, giving them a tight timeframe in which to assemble their pieces. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_201

Due to the high cost of re-assembly, only about half of them appear again outside of Coachella. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_202

Describing the festival's importance to art, Cynthia Washburn of art collective Poetic Kinetics said, "With all the exposure here, I think Coachella is becoming as attractive for artists as it is for the musicians." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_203

In 2013, Clemente considered about 300 art proposals, the most in the festival's history for the time. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_204

Poetic Kinetics has designed several giant moving art installations for past Coachella festivals, including a snail in 2013 ("Helix Poeticus"), an astronaut in 2014 ("Escape Velocity"), and a caterpillar that "metamorphosized" into a butterfly in 2015 ("Papilio Merraculous"). Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_205

The collective reprised the astronaut for the 2019 festival ("Overview Effect"), with weathering affects applied to the design. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_206

Some of the works have been featured at Art Basel, and involved participants from architecture schools, both local and international. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_207

A few of the visual artists, such as Hotshot the Robot, Robochrist Industries, the Tesla Coil (Cauac), Cyclecide, and The Do LaB, alongside avant-garde performance troupe Lucent Dossier Experience, have appeared for several consecutive years. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_208

Poster artist Emek has produced limited edition posters every year since 2007. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_209

Organization Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_10

As the host city to Coachella and the Stagecoach Festival, Indio provides several services such as police and fire protection, private security, medical services, outside law enforcement, and city staff services. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_210

These services for the three weekends of festivals totaled $2.77 million in 2012. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_211

All public safety needs are coordinated by Indio's police department, requiring them to liaise with nearly 12 agencies, including police departments from nearby cities, the sheriff's department, California Highway Patrol, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, American Medical Response, and the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_212

To avoid disturbing local residents, a curfew for music performances is enforced; since 2010, it has been 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, an hour later than the previous curfew, and midnight on Sundays. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_213

Goldenvoice must pay a fine of $1,000 for each minute the festival exceeds the curfew. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_214

Environmental sustainability Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_11

Organizers of Coachella manage its carbon footprint by partnering with the organization Global Inheritance to promote several environmentally friendly initiatives. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_215

Global Inheritance's original project was its "TRASHed :: Art of Recycling" campaign, which challenges local artists to design and decorate recycling bins that are placed across the festival grounds. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_216

Another program is "Carpoolchella"; launched in 2007, it rewards festivalgoers who carpool in groups of four or more and display the word "Carpoolchella" on their cars by entering them in a drawing to win VIP tickets for life. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_217

Through the 2014 festival, the program had 140,000 participants and more than 70 winners of lifetime festival passes. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_218

In 2007, Coachella teamed up with Global Inheritance to start a 10-for-1 recycling program, in which anyone who collects ten empty water bottles receives a free full one. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_219

In 2009, the festival introduced $10 refillable water bottles, which purchasers could refill at water stations inside the festival and within the campgrounds. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_220

Other programs used at the festival include solar powered DJ booths and seesaws used to charge mobile phones. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_221

About 600 staffers are required to collect the litter that accumulates during the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_222

Resources are sorted individually on site before being taken to local landfills and recycling centers. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_223

Goldenvoice maintains a goal to "divert 90 percent of [its] recyclable and compostable materials". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_224

In 2013, staff diverted over 577,720,000 pounds of materials, comprising 36,860 tons of aluminum cans, 105,000 tons of cardboard, 65,360 tons of PET plastic, 47,040 tons of scrap metal, and 34,600 tons of glass. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_225

Camping Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_12

In 2003, Coachella began allowing tent camping as an option for festival lodging. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_226

The campground site is on a polo field adjacent to the venue grounds and has its own entrance on the south side of the venue. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_227

2010 introduced many new features, such as re-entry from the campsite to the festival grounds, parking next to your tent, and recreational vehicle camping spots (recreational vehicle camping was offered one year only). Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_228

For that festival, there were more than 17,000 campers. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_229

At the 2012 event, on-site facilities included recycling, a general store, showers, mobile phone charging stations and an internet cafe with free WiFi. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_230

Talent booking Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_13

Tollett begins to book artists for each festival as early as the previous August. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_231

In addition to agent pitches and artists discovered online, the lineup is culled from acts booked by Goldenvoice for their other 1,800 shows each year. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_232

Tollett uses the promoter's ticketing figures for insight into whom to book, saying: "There are AEG shows all across the country, and I see all their show lists and ticket counts. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_233

So I see little things that are happening maybe before some others, because they don't have that data." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_234

The booking process takes approximately six months. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_235

According to the Los Angeles Times, booking fees for most artists playing the festival allegedly start at $15,000 and extend into the "high six figures." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_236

Top-billed artists for 2010 were expected to receive over $1 million. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_237

Billboard's sources estimated that non-headline acts can earn anywhere from $500 to $100,000. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_238

According to a 2017 profile on Tollett in The New Yorker, that year's headlining performers received $3–4 million. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_239

Beyoncé's 2018 performances and Ariana Grande's 2019 performances reportedly garnered them each $8 million. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_240

In booking the festival, Goldenvoice uses radius clauses that can prevent acts from performing in the vicinity of Coachella for a certain amount of time before and after the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_241

The promoter has allowed some of Coachella's acts to make appearances in the region prior to the festival and between weekends, but only at events and venues owned or controlled by Goldenvoice's parent company AEG; one such example was Jay-Z's concert at Staples Center in 2010. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_242

Goldenvoice now promotes these events, dubbed "Localchella", as a series of small warm-up shows for Coachella in Southern California. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_243

In May 2018, AEG and its subsidiaries were sued by the Oregon-based Soul'D Out Festival for anti-competitive practices related to Coachella's radius clause. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_244

As part of the lawsuit, the clause's details were revealed. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_245

They stipulate that any artist performing at Coachella: Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_246

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_unordered_list_2

  • Cannot perform at any other North American festival from December 15 to May 1.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_2_11
  • Cannot play any hard ticket shows in Southern California from December 15 to May 1.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_2_12
  • Cannot "advertise, publicize or leak" performances for competing festivals in California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, or Arizona, or headlining performances in Southern California taking place after May 1 until after May 7.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_2_13
  • Cannot announce festival appearances for the other 45 US states until after the January announcement of Coachella's lineup, except for South by Southwest, Ultra Music Festival, and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_2_14
  • Cannot publicize concerts in California, Arizona, Washington, or Oregon until after the January announcement of Coachella's lineup, except for performances in Las Vegas casinos.Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_item_2_15

Goldenvoice attempts to release the lineup poster as close to New Year's Day as possible, so that Coachella is the first major festival of the year to announce its lineup. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_247

This gives the promoter a competitive advantage over other festivals, many of which end up sharing headliners by the time they are all announced. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_248

The Coachella lineup poster lists its music artists across several lines in gradually decreasing font sizes in descending order of prominence. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_249

The line on which an artist's name appears as well as their font size is a contentious topic between Goldenvoice and talent agents, as placement on the poster will often dictate an artist's future booking fee. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_250

Tollett said, "We have so many arguments over font sizes. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_251

I literally have over one point size." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_252

Promotion and commercial partnerships Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_14

Organizers were initially resistant to accepting sponsorship deals that would help Coachella turn a higher profit. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_253

In 2003, Tollett estimated that Goldenvoice could earn an additional $300,000 to $500,000 by adding a corporate sponsor to the festival name, but he did not want to violate the purity of the event. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_254

He said, "I hate it when you go to shows and you are bombarded with all this advertising. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_255

It just shows a lack of respect for your audience and the music." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_256

Organizers have relaxed their opposition over the years. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_257

Brewing company Heineken N.V. has maintained a sponsorship with Coachella since 2002, and is the "official brew" of the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_258

The company has sponsored a small performance venue at the festival called the "Heineken House" since 2014, where attendees can drink Heineken beers and keep their cases of Heineken refrigerated. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_259

Clothing retailer H&M added a small sponsored tent on the festival grounds in 2015, where attendees could purchase items from the company's Coachella-inspired clothing line called "H&M Loves Coachella". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_260

Information technology company HP has sponsored the Antarctic dome since 2017, in addition to hosting a promotional tent. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_261

HP's promotions included allowing attendees to design and print bandanas and tote bags, capture light drawing GIFs, design kaleidoscopes, and interact with a motion-reactive wall. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_262

Tollett still objects to having the primary stages and tents sponsored: "I wouldn't let sponsors' logos on the stages. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_263

I feel like when the band is playing it should be you and the band, and it's a sacred moment." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_264

Since 2011, YouTube has live streamed the opening weekend of Coachella. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_265

Viewers can choose from three channels of performances to watch. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_266

In 2014, AXS TV began broadcasting the second weekend on television; over 20 hours of live performances from the 2015 festival were broadcast on AXS TV. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_267

Performances from the 2015 festival were also broadcast live on Sirius XM satellite radio for the first time. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_268

In 2019, YouTube expanded its content for the festival livestream, which included a stream of both weekends of the festival for the first time. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_269

Weekend one included a premiere of Donald Glover's film Guava Island, while weekend two featured Coachella Curated, programming hosted by radio personality Jason Bentley that took "a deep dive into the festival experience" by offering "encore and live performances, artist commentary, mini-docs, animated adventures and more". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_270

For 2016, organizers partnered with Vantage.tv to offer virtual reality (VR) content for the festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_271

Ticket holders received a cardboard VR viewer inspired by Google Cardboard in their Coachella welcome package that can used with the Coachella VR mobile app (available on Android, iOS, and Samsung Gear VR). Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_272

Content includes 360-degree panoramic photos of previous events, virtual tours of the 2016 festival site, interviews, and performances. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_273

That same year, YouTube live streamed performances from weekend two in 360 degrees for viewing with VR headsets. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_274

The success of Coachella has led its organizers to partner with other American music festivals. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_275

In 2003, Goldenvoice agreed to work with the organizers of Field Day, a New York-based festival modeled after Coachella, to help promote and produce the event, although the show was completely overhauled from its original vision. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_276

In September 2014, Goldenvoice announced it had entered into a joint venture with Red Frog Events to help them promote and produce their Firefly Music Festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_277

In January 2015, a similar agreement was reached with the organizers of the Hangout Music Festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_278

Goldenvoice claimed it spent $700,000 in 2015 on "media and related content to promote Coachella". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_279

Brand protection Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_15

Goldenvoice aggressively protects the Coachella brand. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_280

As of April 2018, they filed six lawsuits in the previous two years against outlets that attempted to use the Coachella name or the suffix "chella". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_281

The defendants included the music festival Hoodchella; the film festival Filmchella; energy company Phillips 66, which promoted a Coachella wristband giveaway that the festival's terms of services disallows; Sean Combs's event "Combschella"; Urban Outfitters; and a Whole Foods location in Palm Desert that promoted a "Wholechella" concert and tasting event. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_282

According to Goldenvoice's attorneys in one lawsuit, the litigation is one way the promoter attempts to "extensively police unauthorized use of the Coachella Marks". Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_283

Although the Coachella name has been in use by a town in the Coachella Valley since before the festival was founded, the festival's success has imbued the name with "secondary meaning", allowing Goldenvoice to trademark it. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_284

Impact and legacy Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_section_16

The success of Coachella in its early years proved that American music festivals could work and succeed in a destination form, as opposed to a traveling festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_285

In the years following Coachella's success, many other festivals have followed in its footsteps, copying its format as a destination festival with multiple stages, attractions, art, and camping. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_286

Some of these new festivals have grown to achieve the same success as Coachella, such as, Lollapalooza in Chicago, Governors Ball in New York City, Outside Lands in San Francisco, Stereo Picnic in Bogotá and Bonnaroo in Tennessee. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_287

According to a 2015 ranking by online ticket retailer viagogo, Coachella was the second-most in-demand concert ticket, trailing only the Tomorrowland festival. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_288

Coachella is considered a trendsetter in music and fashion. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_289

Singer Katy Perry said, "The lineup always introduces the best of the year for the rest of the year." Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_290

Coachella has become known for the variety of distinctive apparel worn by attendees, which primarily include eclectic combinations of colors, materials, and ethnic borrowings. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_291

The latter has also resulted in backlash regarding cultural appropriation, particularly for non-natives wearing Native American-inspired headdresses and body paint, as well as African-American and Asian elements. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_292

According to a 2012 economic impact study, Coachella brought $254.4 million to the desert region that year; of that total, Indio received $89.2 million in consumer spending and $1.4 million in tax revenue. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_293

Goldenvoice's other festival at the Empire Polo Club, Stagecoach, has been called a "cousin" of Coachella, but it has grown at a faster pace, eventually selling out for the first time in 2012 with 55,000 attendees. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_294

Together, the two festivals were estimated by experts to have a global impact of $704.75 million in 2016; approximately $403.2 million of that was expected to impact the Coachella Valley, $106 million of which would go to businesses in Indio. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_295

The city was expected to gain $3.18 million in ticket taxes from the two festivals in 2016. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_296

The success of Coachella led to Goldenvoice holding additional music festivals at the Empire Polo Club. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_297

It founded the country music festival Stagecoach in 2007 and continues to hold it on an annual basis. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_298

In 2011, the promoter staged the Big 4 festival, so-named for its quadruple billing of the most prominent bands in thrash metalAnthrax, Megadeth, Metallica, and Slayer. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_299

In 2016, Goldenvoice staged Desert Trip, which featured older rock oriented and legacy acts such as the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, and Bob Dylan. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival_sentence_300
