It´s finally that time of the year. Coachella is approaching and it´s time for one of the happiest weekends of the year. This year we will be attending weekend 1, the opening weekend, when the most unannounced artist come to join the headliners on stage and when the he celebrities from L.A come out in the desert outside of Palm Springs to enjoy all the positive vibes that only ´chella can bring! This year we are teaming up with the talented photographer Sam Dameshek, videographer Connor Brashier and the beautiful Valentina Bilbao to capture the best moments of the festival. Be sure to follow us on Instagram @andreasingeman for their account takeover.
Here is our guide to the first day of this years Coachella:
16:10 @Coachella stage: Years & Years are playing at the main stage this year. You should let this trio from London be your opening act to Coachella. They will definitely get you in the right mood
Now you should grab yourself a beer in one of the beer gardens and watch the ambience at the festival as the sun is low and lightening up the surrounding mountains in red colour.
18:40 @Coachelle stage: Of Monsters and Men are playing at the best time of the day. Be there!
19:15 @ Mojave: BØRNS is playing her nice tunes. You should head there directly after Of Monsterns and Men
Now M83 starts playing at Coachella stage at 19:55. They are one of our favourites, but this year we would recommend something else:
20:20: @Gobi: Norwegian super kid Lido is playing his first ever Coachella gig. You will love his catchy tunes. We promise.
As you walk back to the beer tent by the Coachella stage, you should stop of for a minute and listen as Sufjan Stevens is playing his melancholic songs at our favourite stage, the Outdoor. Then grab som food. You are probably hungry by now ; )
22:05: @Outdoor: Jack U are playing at Outdoor, and the party officially kicks off. Rumours are telling us that Justin Bieber will join them on stage. Woohoo; )
22:45: @Gobi: Lemaitre keeps the party going, This Norwegian electronic pop duo is something you wouldn't miss. Gobi stage is totally going Norwegian this year. We like!
Before hooking up with you friend for the night and heading back to your Palm Springs hotel for some late night party by the pool, there is one more concert to end off your first day at Coachella:
23:05: @Sahara: The bad ass kids Rae Sremmurd will end off your day at the Coachella grounds with a bang. Be ready to jump!
Be sure to dress to impress and enjoy! If you already bought your Andreas Ingeman watch: wear it! If we see you we´ll buy you a beer (or give you a hug!).
