Chell makes a comeback after two years
The mega event that is the unique blend of music and fashion is coming back after being in absentia for two years and everyone who is anyone has it marked on the calendar. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is set for April 15-17 and April 22-24 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, only about 20 minutes from Palm Springs, California.
The first Coachella in 1999, drew about 20,000 people in each of its two days. By 2012, the festival became so popular, a second weekend of performances was added. The event has evolved with musical trends and unlike other festivals which espoused something – for instance, peace and love were Woodstock’s catch words – Coachella doesn’t have a raison d’etre, but rather is free from identity constraints.
A Hippie-ish Vibe
What you’ll find many women wearing to the event are more bohemian-inspired pieces based loosely on a hippie lifestyle – free-flowing dresses; skirts; cut-offs; bikini and crocheted, cropped halter tops; layered necklaces and beads; ankle bracelets; aviator sunglasses decked out with plastic daisies; tie-dyed backpacks and crowns made of flowers. Coachella markets itself as one of the world’s most “Instagrammable'' events and rightly so.
What to Wear to Coachella
It’s important to decide what kind of style you want to convey. Is it bohemian, sexy, cute, western or something else? Coachella is considered a place where the fashion and music trends are set for the year. Have fun with your look and make it uniquely you! Here are some reminders:
Remember, you’re in the desert. It’s hot. Dress in lightweight fabrics and summer styles, such as crop tops and mini shorts.
· This is the time and place to be bold, so wear bright colors and cool, retro patterns.
· Keep footwear chic and comfortable with boots, sandals or sneakers and make sure your tender tootsies can “breathe.”
· Always add accessories, such as jewelry, hats, belts and sunglasses.
Everyone Blends In
Coachella draws in hordes of people from around the world, including some of the most famous and fashionable celebrities. From musicians and actresses to reality TV stars and models, A-listers of all types flock to this desert festival, making it an incredible source of style inspiration. Of course the performers are the main draw, but Coachella is the only music festival where you might see celebrities roaming around freely embracing their inner bohemian spirit, mingling among a crowd of about 500,000 revelers. One way you don’t want to blend in is in where you’re staying during the Coachella festival. For that, you deserve the 14,000 square feet of sultry, stunning luxury Villa Aurelia offers set amid the desert mountains. This modern, sleek Rancho Mirage home sits on three acres of beautifully manicured terrain with a jaw-dropping view of the city in the distance. When you’re not enjoying your time at Coachella, relax by the pool with your favorite cocktail.
Who’s On the Marqueé this year?
The Coachella lineup never disappoints and this year is no exception. Headliners are Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, and Ye (the artist formerly known as Kanye West). They close each night of the desert extravaganza with dance, pop, rap, fanfare and lots of surprise guests. Other heavy hitters include EDM supergroup, Swedish House Mafia; 21 Savage; Doja; Disclosure; Banda MS; Karol G; and Anitta.
Billie Eilish first gained recognition for her song, Ocean Eyes, in 2015 at a mere 14 years of age. Her rise to fame has been continual and she became the youngest person to ever win a Grammy for album of the year in 2020. She’ll make history at this year’s Coachella, too, where the 20-year-old will be the youngest headliner the event has ever had.
Harry Styles, 27, first rose to fame as one of the members of the boy band, One Direction. He launched his solo career in 2016 and also took up acting. He made a splash in 2017 with his debut single, Sign of the Times, and a self-titled album.
Ye (formerly Kanye West)
Ye (Kanye West) made his mark on the music industry as a producer for leading artists. He showcased his own abilities with his 2004 debut, College Dropout, and cemented his place in the hip hop world with such chart-topping albums as Late Registration, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Ye. The 45-year-old has won more than 10 Grammys.
