Coachellin' 2012

I have finally got my pictures together and am ready to present to you my first and AMAZING Coachella 2012 experience! The festival started Friday at 11am and continued constantly right through till Sunday night ending at 1am..... talk about a lot of partying.  I was going into this experience with a complete open mind, not knowing much of what happens at this festival except tons of people, great music, and it takes place in the middle of nowhere is the city limits of Coachella.  So here goes......
When we arrived on Friday the weather was super rainy and cold! yes COLD! how could this be,  it has been 85+ in Arizona and California for the past month,  all of a sudden the weather decides to drop to 50 something at night? Yes, minor set back but thats ok.  Saturday and Sunday the weather was just perfect so no complaints!
I LOVE ferris wheels! They are so photogenic and remind me of olden day happiness. The shot above was taken walking into the festival grounds. 
Peace, Love, Coachella!
FASHION!!! Probably one of the biggest aspect to Coachella.... well for me anyways! It was so great to see all the different ensembles that were on display. lace, crochet, floral, neon, pastels, jeans.... to die for.  Think of  a Free People add.  perfection!! On the flip side,  I did witness some craz outfits.  People in no shoes, no shirts, fish tights, rinestones in places I didnt know rinestones went,. people dressed as animals.  Yes you name it,  I saw it! 
The bamboo structure outside the Sahara tent!
The artists that preformed were unbelievable.  There was no disappointment at all.  Just to name a few of my favs, Sebastian (DJ), The Black Keys, Sweetish House Mafia, Grace Potter, The Shins, David Guetta with guest appearance from Usher, The Hives,  Calvin Harris with guest appearance from Rihanna,  and the best of alll Snoop Dog and Dr. Dre with guest appearances by EMINEM, 50 cent, Wiz Khalifa, oh and apparently Tupac!!
My favorite place to hang at Coachella is the Sahara tent.  As you can see in the pictures above it is one great big bright dance party!!
lots of dancing all weekend!!
Until next year Coachella! I will always remember this experience!!
