The music festival has been going since 1999, and tickets for the Coachella festival are invariably in high demand. The roots of the festival can be traced back to a show performed by world-famous US alternative rock band Pearl Jam, who refused to play Los Angeles venues at the time due to a dispute about ticket sales, selecting the Empire Polo Club in Indio to play a show there. This led to the idea of staging a full festival at the site. The initiative did not come to fruition until 1999, when the first Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was held, three months after the notorious Woodstock ‘99 festival. Early promotion efforts marketed the festival as the sunny counterpart to the muddy Glastonbury Festival in England.
The line-up the first year featured artists who were popular at the time including Beck, Rage Against the Machine and Tool. Subsequent festivals were headlined by such legendary acts as Oasis, Radiohead, Coldplay, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, The Stone Roses, The Rolling Stones and AC/DC. The festival has been expanding ever since its inception, and despite recurrent concerns – on the part of music magazine Rolling Stone for example – that the event might not sell out, it has done just that each successive year.
What sets Coachella apart from most other festivals are its initiatives in the way of environmental friendliness and sustainability, where it tries to minimise its carbon footprint, as well as its tendency to book acts based on artistry rather than radio airplay. In addition, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival commissions the display of massive art installations on the festival grounds each year, which give the surroundings a magical touch. Coachella has truly established itself as a leading festival that reflects movements and trends in the world of music, and in rock, indie, hip hop and electronic dance music in particular.
