10 non-Coachella music festivals worth attending in 2019

brooklynvegan.com - 04-15


Arguably the biggest U.S. festival, Coachella, goes down this weekend. It’s about to be the talk of the music world for the next two weeks or so, but if you’re not going, try not to have too much FOMO. Not only is the livestream basically an international event of its own, Coachella usually sells out before the lineup is even announced. (There are actually some weekend two tickets back on sale, but weekend one — which always has the biggest surprises — is long sold out.) It’s kinda like that Yogi Berra quote, “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.” Coachella is still gigantic and still books tons of great music, but serious music fans are understandably distancing themselves from actually attending — it’s often not worth the hassle.
