Coachella – The event, music fans are gearing up for

The Coachella valley music and arts festival, commonly known as Coachella, is a multiday annual music and arts festival held at Empire Polo club at India California. It is a festival with live and continuous music of different genre in a single venue. As announced by Golden voice in 2011, this year festival is going to be held over two weekends starting this year.

Though it is held over two weekends, the music, performers and art are the same except for a different audience. This is done solely due to overwhelming response, so that the show can reach more people. Though it is quite a challenge to recreate the same experience in two consecutive weekends, organizers are confident of nailing it.

Tye Comer, Editor of Billboard.com told Reuters that Coachella has pushed boundaries in the past and also redefined what festivals are about usually. It has given a new color and dimension to the festivals held anywhere else in the world.

The Annual Big Chill Festival Called Off

Due to the lack of interest shown by artists and the poor confirmation provided by them, The Big Chill festival has been cancelled. The managing director of Festival Republic blames the unavailability of the right kind of artists. Scheduling conflicts and that coupled with artist unavailability, the festival that happens every summer in Herefordshire, London had to be scrubbed.

The Big Chill is more than just a music festival. It all began in 1994, as a series of parties at the Union Chapel, London. It then became an outdoor festival in 1995. Even then it was an unlicensed event. Only in 1996 it became a licensed event and the festival happened unsuccessfully at Norfolk. In 1998 it moved to the Larmer Tree Gardens, England and stayed there for 5 years. It’s during this time the festival established itself and became popular for its unusual combination of food, visuals, line-ups, masseuses, healers and alternative therapists.
