COACHELLA 2018 ROUNDUP

April 20, 2018

After last year’s fiasco with a festival that never ended happening, this year I was lucky enough to attend Coachella for the second time.

My experience wasn’t all that different from the one in 2016, but this time the list of artists I wanted to see was way bigger and the scheduling conflicts had me pretty bummed. Since last time I had experienced weekend 2 I felt like I needed to see what weekend 1 was all about.

With Beyoncé being a headliner, I understood immediately that her show would end up being one of the biggest acts in the history of the festival, and because of that I had to sacrifice some performances that I would have loved to check out. In the end I can say it was 100% worth it though; her concert was surreal and it’s hands down the best music concert I have attended in my life.

Even though I tend to avoid this type of events (I’m not a fan of being in a hurry, staying long hours outdoors in the sun and being in the same place with literally hundreds of thousands of people), Coachella is definitely in a whole different category and it’s worth every single minute you spend on the grounds. I’ve been asked before how many times do I plan to attend the festival and I’m not really sure I have an answer. The best one I can give right now is that given the opportunity, I will do it all over again as many times as I’m able to.

For now, I leave you with the recap of the bands I saw and the clothes I wore. I shared a ton of Instagram Stories with more moments from the weekend. I hope you enjoy them!

Her set was amazing and it made it totally worth it being on my feet for more than five hours waiting for her because I ended up seeing her from very close. It still feels like a dream.

Después del fiasco que viví el año pasado con un festival que nunca sucedió, este año tuve la suerte de regresar por segunda vez a Coachella.

Mi experiencia no fue tan diferente de cuando fui en 2016, sólo que ahora definitivamente había más artistas que quería ver y los horarios terminaron siendo un caos, además de que en esta ocasión fui al Weekend 1 en lugar del 2. Con Beyoncé como headliner sabía que su set sería uno de los más grandes en la historia del festival y por lo mismo tuve que sacrificar otros performances que me gustaría haber visto, pero en general toda la experiencia valió la pena.

Aunque por lo general suelo evitar este tipo de eventos masivos por la gente y la correteada (entre otras cosas), definitivamente Coachella está en otra categoría y vale cada minuto que estás ahí. Me han preguntado que cuántas veces planeo ir en la vida, y la verdad es que no estoy seguro. Mi mejor respuesta hasta ahora es que si tengo la oportunidad, no duraré en repetir el viaje cuantas veces pueda.

Por lo pronto les dejé mi recap de las bandas que vi y la ropa que usé. En Instagram compartí un montón de historias con una probadita de los shows, ¡espero las disfruten!
