Effectively proving itself as the king of all music festivals, Coachella has, year after year, surmounted itself right at the top, by putting up a show like no other. Happening right in the middle of the Colorado Desert, at the Coachella valley, there must be a strong reason that so many festival goers make a bee-line for the tickets, right?

Wrong. The reasons are multiple. And today The Sherp is going to list out just why Coachella must be your start to the annual festival season. With its 2015 edition looking so bright, you’ll be wishing you planned for it right at the earliest!

1. The Line-up

The Coachella 2015 line-up is glorious, to say the least. Not only does it see the return of rock giants AC / DC, but it has also packed in some sweet independent support with acts like Father John Misty and Alt-J. They not only have young rapper on the block, Azealia Banks, but also seasoned festival regular, Drake along with Run The Jewels and Lil B. With electronic acts such as Caribou and FKA Twigs, along with the legendary Flying Lotus, it’s safe to say that not one person will leave empty handed. Trust Coachella to know how to punch in the variety with their line-up, like few other festivals can.

2. The next best thing to music? Food

Their Food and Beverage line-up is such an enthusiastic addition to their music. They go from serving vegan pretzels to ramen, basically satisfying any kind of hunger one might have, junk or otherwise. Think pizzas? They have it. Something simple like a granola bar to amp up your energy? They have it too. How about a luxurious meal prepared by superstar celebrity chefs? They have it too, replete with full course accompaniments. Plus, they have teamed up with popular food app, Reserve, where you can actually reserve tables to combat the madness. Now only if you could move lock, stock and barrel to the festival site, right? But Wait.

3. Yes, You can

Camping at Coachella has never been this tempting before. Camping at the desert festival has always been a festival goer’s craze but with their heightened utilities in the 2015 edition, even the elitist cynics would want to give it a go. Not only do they have free showers installed at a high frequency around the camping zones, but free wifi, additional number of portaloos, food and beverage vendors, general stores, cellphone charging points, farmers markets – name it and you have it at the camp sites at Coachella this year. Now don’t you wish you could live there all year long?

4. The Coachella App

It has never been this easy to be at a festival before. The Coachella app not only notifies you about last minute changes, but lets you enjoy the festival as seamlessly as you can. You can add your favourites, and create your handy schedule, with set reminders on the go. Never again will you rush to a stage only find out that your chosen act has ended.

5. It has inspired make-up

Coachella music DJ Mia Moretti has teamed up with popular make-up brand MAC to create a handy festival goer’s make-up capsule. To be released right before Coachella, this announcement is literally worth every fashion forward person’s dream come true! Inspired by Coachella chic style, the make-up capsule is the handiest accessory to have this festival season.
