Coachella Day 1- Friday


oh Coachella! you never know what you’re going to see.


After a quick detour because of a broken bracelet, we made it to the Empire polo fields after 5. (these bracelets are terrible, my sister almost lost hers.) Are you having problems with yours?


Ready or not! Here I come…after a little superglue.


Ms. Lauryn Hill was seriously amazing! We tried to leave to watch Afrojack, but she had us hooked.


just hang me up to dry…Cold War Kids


1st timers Jenn and Nicole livin’ in the moment


The Black Keys killed it. they are my fav!  I’ve seen them before, but last time there was less pushing and shoving by the crowd. Last night, everyone kept on screaming “Turn it Up, Turn it Up” and they did!   The video screens didn’t start working until about 20 minutes into the show…and that’s when the music went up a notch!  Best of the night in my book.

happy birthday Patrick! (he’s the drummer)


Sleigh Bells, Robyn – love love love.  Was it me…or was Kings of Leon not at their best? They were better the last time I saw them in San Diego.


Caught in the Act! glo-stick man dancing


Mumford and Sons, Arcade fire, Erykah Badu, Raphael Saadiq, Broken Social Scene, Steve Angello, Empire of the Sun, Scissor Sisters, Paul Van Dyk, Fedde Le Grand tonight! yes, yes yes! 

-thank you Steve for laminating my schedule… Of course, I lost it after like an hour.

      I tried using the light from my phone to retrace my steps and find it. I just like to think I really made someone’s day when they found the schedule! 😉
