Inside the Crazy Coachella !

Coachella Music Festival  is the answer to Glastonbury, welcoming a huge bill of acts (184 this year) from across most popular music genres, including rock, hip hop, dance and indie.
Roughly 90,000 passes are sold for both three-day weekends – a cumulative amount that is over 10 times the population of the tiny city of Coachella, and roughly equal to the population of the whole Coachella Valley area. That said, the festival is smaller than Glastonbury, which has sold 135,000 weekend tickets this year.
Which bands and musicins to watchout for this year ?
Hip-hop’s coolest duo Outkast make their long-awaited return with a Coachella headline slot – their first live show for eight years. They’re joined as headliners by stadium prog-rock heavyweights Muse, and Canadian troupe Arcade Fire, whose recent Reflektor album added a danceable new-wave pulse to their epic art rock.
Only a fool would pass up the opportunity to see Pharrell Williams while he’s at the peak of his pop powers. His Saturday night slots should be one big “happy” party.
For more laid back thrill, try Beck: his gorgeous, serene new album Morning Phase sounds like some great lost Laurel Canyon folk classic.
Elsewhere, catching reformed Minneapolis punk-rock heroes The Replacements is a must (if they can hold things together for long enough to make it on stage), as is making time for teen pop empress Lorde and US rapper Nas, who is celebrating 20 years of his seminal hip hop album, Illmatic. Indie fans would be well-advised to catch Jeff Mangum’s cult psychedelic folk act Neutral Milk Hotel, who have reformed and are playing gigs for the first time in 14 years. Also keep an eye out for Neko Case, Waxahatchee, Superchunk, Little Dragon, Goat, A$AP Ferg and Bombay Bicycle Club.
Baltimore synth-rockers Future Islands are finally getting the recognition they deserve thanks to their excellent fourth album, Singles, so a triumphant Coachella seems inevitable. Aside from them, Australian slacker-rock poet Courtney Barnett, Chicagoan upstart Chance the Rapper, and shivery RnB newcomer Banks are three to watch.
There are loads of Brits on the bill – from arch art-rock seducer Bryan Ferry to Brit Awards-conquerors Ellie Goulding and Bastille. Perhaps the most exciting British act is Blood Orange – a.k.a. Devonte Hynes – who is best known for producing singers Solange Knowles and Sky Ferreira’s forays into plaintive Eighties pop. His album, Cupid Deluxe, blends the bleary synths and funk guitar of Prince with throbbing RnB beats and jazzy experimentation. Live, he could go two ways: will he give Coachella a raucous pop carnival, or moody navel-gazing? Either way, it’ll be worth finding out. If that doesn’t sound like your thing, CHVRCHES, Disclosure, Frank Turner, Laura Mvula and Rudimental are among the other UK acts on the bill.
Who are the stylish crowds so far at the Coachella this year ?
We have a host of big names from the music industry as well the young and restless from hollywood attending this year, bohamian, gypsies style and short crop tops with style statement jewelleries and boots and cow boy hats ruled the roost. We can see Katy Perry hanging out with pals in her new green hairdo, Selena Gomez clicking selfies with Kendell and Kylie Jenner, Vanessa Hudgens her gypsy style pouting out for the cameras,Rita Ora in her braided style and Jared Leto the Oscar winner enjoying the warm weather with the festivities. Popular stars of 'Pretty Little Liars' Ashley Benson, Shay Mitchelle and Troian Bellisario were seen posing for a pretty picture together.
We are waiting to see if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart attend the festivity together this year giving their fans a chance to believe they are still together!
