40 acts. There are plenty more that could be added. LOTS! Notice I only have one of the three headliners there. That's by design. You already know if you want to see them or not.
Last year I saw pieces of 27 acts on Week 1 and 23 on Week 2 (yes, I did a log of who I saw). Some I spent more time at than others. You will too. You may see 18 acts all weekend. That’s if you hustle. It’s not easy. We’ve all been there. Ease yourself in and get to what you can. Get there early on Friday and soak up all the fun stuff. Get it out of the way to avoid the lines and let your friends know what’s worth checking and bypassing. Also, so you can get deep with the music. Check out the JBL tent for fun picture taking nonsense. Stake out food, beverage, and facilities. Be sure to check out the secret Mexican restaurant in the Craft Beer area. AC, bathrooms, shade, Tequila. All necessities of life.
With the release of the set times it looks to be completely frustrating to try and see everything. It's just impossible. Thank god for two weekends! It's not easy though and if you can't make it both, simplify. See what you want. Discover what you can. Enjoy it all. Coachella is meant to give you an "experience" like no other. Don't over think it. Just enjoy the music, the art, people watch, talk with everyone, hydrate, and get lost in it all. That’s the point.
EvilTapo will be on the grounds both weekends. Find us!
