Photoset: Coachella Weekend 1

By Valheria Rocha

A couple of weeks ago, I went to Coachella Weekend 1 with my brother. It was the first musical festival I’ve ever been to, and it did not disappoint. It was an amazing adventure with lots of good music, weird people and weird food (both good weird and weird weird), no sleep, lots of sand and dust and sunscreen, and enough memories for a lifetime.

Tacocat: We walked in as they were finishing their last two songs. They had on funky clothes, were playing good beats, and brought out the Katy Perry sharks from the Superbowl. Amazing.

Shannon and the Clams. THIS BAND IS SO GOOD. SO SO GOOD. I’d been wanting to see them for a while and I was able to get front row spots to witness Shannon’s magic. She’s a queen.

Future: Brought out Migos and Drake. I cried real tears. Need I say more?

Gaga. The Queen. Slayed my entire existence. 2 seconds on the stage and I forgot how sad I was about Beyonce cancelling. Amazing show. Powerhouse of a woman. She played all the favorites plus a new song and all while she wore the most amazing glittery outfits to ever exist. 15/10 would see again in concert.

Hinds. I’ve been following Hinds for a while and was SO excited to see them but sadly, I got sunscreen or dust or something in my eye right before the show and my eye wouldn’t stop crying. I had to go get my eye washed at the medical tent and missed 98% of their show. When we went back, we had lost our front row spots and they had let everyone dance on stage with them. UGH. Don’t even want to talk about it anymore, but I still love Hinds!

Grouplove. SO GOOOOD. So much fun, so much love on that stage. They were so amazing to watch. They have so much chemistry, it’s just a bunch of best friends in a band. They also sound exactly the same live as they do on their recordings. Also Christian Zucconi (blonde guy and singer) is beautiful and his partner Hannah Hooper is a total BADASS.

Lorde. What a lil queeeeen! She is so fun and so talented. She really takes control of the stage, which is amazing because she’s a single act and she’s tiny! Sang all the faves and some new songs including this one called Liability, which I can’t stop listening to. It hits sooo hard. Guarantee everyone’s felt like it at least once in their life. GO LISTEN!!

Tennis: This band is so magical. Her voice is amazing, and their vibes are outta this world. Also their branding/aesthetic is ON POINT.
