“Disappointing photos show what Coachella is like in real life”

I went 3 times back when it was more Alt/Punk bands and yes this nails it!

My Coachella memories - hot, dusty, dehydrated, standing in lines, sitting in dirt/grass hopefully in the shade, long walk to get in from your car, long walk in the dark to leave and try to find your car (no shuttle), waiting over an hour to get out of the parking lot the first night, left early to avoid that (and missed headliners the other nights), expensive everything, lots and lots of people, seeing bands from far away, crappy food, good music...

“Disappointing photos show what Coachella is like in real life”

Coachella in Indio, California, is one of the most famous music festivals.

Insider's music team found the reality was not exactly how it appeared on social media.

It's dusty, the food is expensive, and much of the day is spent sitting or weaving through crowds.
