Juxtapoz at Coachella 2011Juxtapoz // Friday, 22 Apr 2011
A weekend away to the desert mid-April for music, lil sun in the skin, art installs, and VIPs of all kinds geared me up for the 2011 spring and summer music season. This particular inaugural event being Coachella. Note: Indian garb and hippy chic top the list of 2011 music fest looks du jour. Also, apparently, sea captains, which, in the middle of the desert ... got me.
Each band killed it, whether you'd heard of 'em or not, and the art installations scattered through the Empire Polo Fields did more than just look pretty or involve the crowd (like the Creator's Project), but helped in some cases provide desperately needed shade and respite from the devil that was the sun. So here's a taste of Coachella through my eyes. —Erin Dyer
