A lot of people hate Coachella, and I get it. Plenty of things to hate. I don’t need to list those things because you know them.
Despite all this bullshit that definitely upsets me, I love this event.
The biggest reason I love Coachella is because I live in Phoenix and we never get these bands to come here. I don’t have the luxury of living in a high demand market such as LA, NYC or Chicago. With Coachella, I not only get to see these bands but I get to see them all in a weekend.
Saying that I, or anyone for that matter, love music is a well known remark. So yes, if I get to dedicate a weekend to just listening to music with friends, how could I not love it.
When it comes to all that other crap that people hate about Coachella, just ignore that crap. Who cares. I’m not about to let someone/something else get in the way of me having a good time. Yes it sucks having to witness frat guys/sorority girls in tank tops bitch about bands they never took the time to listen to, but I didn’t spend over $300 to pay attention to a stranger moan and groan.
Sure this whole “Coachella diet” and all the blog hype about the festival sucks but the same shit happens with other festivals similar to Coachella.
So just worry about having fun rather than what other people think.
