  • The Lost And Found Of Coachella 2014 [22 Photos]

    With around 90,000 people attending each day of the 2014 Coachella Festival, there’s a good chance that a few things would be left behind. The good news is that the swell folks out there in California have collected and documented everything they found and have put the info up on the Coachella website. The bad news is that you only have 3 months to claim your stuff before it’s donated to charity. There are plenty of car keys, prescription glasses, and digital cameras, but the most incredible find has to be the birth certificate from Pakistan. It seems like if you brought your foreign birth certificate to a music festival, you must have had a really good reason. And leaving without it probably caused you lots of trouble. So if you lost your Pakistani birth certificate or a cool flask with an anchor on it, be sure to claim your junk at Coachella Lost and Found.

  • The Lost and Found of Coachella 2013

    Every year the Coachella cleanup crew finds hundreds of wallets, ID cards, bags, sunglasses and other valuable handheld items strewn around Indio’s iconic polo fields. The event organizer Goldenvoice displays all the lost goods on their website, describing them as “casualties to a weekend of hard partying; a rare chance to root around people’s pockets without them knowing” (weirdly, “young men from Australia and New Zealand have an especially hard time holding onto their driver’s licenses”). Goldenvoice waits three months before donating everything to charity, so you’ve got about five weeks left.

  • RSVLTS Crash The Super Sexy “Volt Valley” Coachella Pool Party [136 Photos + GIFS]

    The “Volt Valley” Coachella pool party is the be-all, end-all place for celebrities and beautiful people to congregate before heading over to the festival grounds. Naturally, since we are super sexy in our new RSVLTS t-shirts, we were in attendance to do some zip lining, eat a few burgers from STK and try some delicious Patron infused ice cream cookie sandwiches. We also got to rip some pregame shots with Michael Peña, otherwise known as Nick Memphis in the incredibly underrated flick Shooter. Great dude and as you’ll see below he’s got a good eye for saucy poolside cell phone photos.

  • RSVLTS Coachella Adventure [75 HQ Photos]

    This past weekend we went to the first weekend of Coachella Arts and Music Festival at Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, Ca. At the festival we saw some incredible bands perform, met hundreds of music fans, went celebrity spotting in the various VIP sections and drank icy cool beers in the Heineken Dome. Luckily we were able to score a coveted photo pass that allowed us to be one of the few publications allowed to roam around with a professional camera. We used a Nikon 5200 with a 16-35mm lens which helped us capture these excellent pictures. If you spot yourself or someone you know feel free to download the pictures and share on Facebook. 

  • Insiders Look At Heineken’s Coachella Dome Dance Party [15 HQ Photos]

    Here is a pro tip for anyone attending weekend two of Coachella. Beat the heat, enjoy good music and get a quick beer at the Heineken Domes. Beyond providing the only wi-fi access on the entire festival grounds and music from DJs like White Noize, the Heineken Domes are also chilled with massive air conditioners providing concert goers relief from the heat and a pretty epic dance party. We spent a lot of time in the Domes over the weekend and if you couldn’t make it out to the festival here is what you missed.

  • Coachella-type Music Festival Coming To Arizona In September

    The Canyon Moon Ranch, located just outside of Phoenix in Florence, AZ, is home to the annual Country Thunder Festival every April. The year-round entertainment facility, which includes a 55,000-square-foot pavilion, recently announced that it will host Liquid Sol. The Coachella-like multigenre music festival will come September 19-21 to Canyon Moon Ranch’s sprawling festival grounds, which can accommodate camping for thousands. Harry Luge, whose family owns the property, did not give any further details but stay tuned as he said they are still finalizing the lineup.

  • Could Coachella Have Reunited Nirvana With A Hologram Of Kurt Cobain?

    When Coachella released their “Bloom” teaser video (below) on Wednesday we thought there was a chance Golden Voice, the promoters of Coachella, would bring the living members of Nirvana, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, together to support a reunion of the band fronted by a hologram version of Kurt Cobain. Wishful thinking but not all that unrealistic. Novoselic and Grohl performed together for the first time in over 20 years at the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert and the 1993 “In Utero” concert (above) and the MTV Unplugged show offer great video footage that could have been turned into a hologram. It wasn’t meant to be but maybe next year? Since the 2Pac performance in 2012 was such a hit and fake Coachella line-up posters are all over the web someone put together this gem featuring an all hologram line-up.

  • Coachella 2013 Line-up Guide: Confirmed Acts And Dispelling Rumors

    Coachella will be announcing their 2013 two weekend line-up in the next few hours or days (at the most). Get excited. Here are some pictures from Coachella 2012. With Governors Ball dropping a bomb on the music industry today it’s now Coachella’s turn to awe us.  We’ve been following Twitter religiously for confirmations and dispelling of rumors. Here is a feed of what we’re seeing. 

  • The Rolling Stones To Headline Coachella?

    The producers of Coachella won’t be releasing the 2013 line-up until later this month but if a cryptic photo of a big round rock in an empty field on the festival’s grounds is any indication we might assume that The Rolling Stones will be headlining this year’s festival. See also: 40 Incredible High-Res Photos from Coachella 2012 >> Rolling Stone (the magazine) also said that, “The Stones themselves listed Coachella 2013 in the tour section of their mobile app for a brief time late last year, though Mick Jagger told Rolling Stone that he didn’t know how it got there.” See also: There Was No Shortage Of Bikini Girls At Coachella 2012 [60 Photos] >> It has been 44 years since the Stones have played an American festival but music insiders are speculating that the band is planning a massive tour to  honor their 50th anniversary as Keith Richard said,”We barely got off the starting blocks” when referring to their series of shows in the Tri-State area.

  • An Incredible Amount of Valuable Stuff Was Lost At Coachella…

    It has been 30 days since Coachella took place and the promoters have hit Facebook in an attempt to return all the lost stuff top their rightful owners. It is mind-blowing how many keys, glasses, wallets, phones, bags and valuable cameras were lost and unclaimed. They posted pictures of the lost items online in hopes that their owners will see them and claim. If these don’t make you face palm nothing will.   

  • A Reckless Coachella Experience

    Young and Reckless enjoyed an incredible Coachella experience in 2012. You probably know this already from the amazing pictures we posted up.  From dance parties in the Sahara tent to watching Tupac perform live, they managed to have an amazing time and cannot wait to return in 2013.

  • 40 Incredible High-Res Photos from Coachella 2012

    Week one of Coachella Arts and Music Festival is officially in the books. The hologram performance from Tupac was definitely the winner of the weekend – watch the HD video here. If you weren’t able to make it out this past weekend head down to Indio, CA because they are doing it all over again next weekend – same line-up and everything. Celebrities were out in full force, The Hoff was spotted amongst the crown, and so were the Coachella girls in bikinis. The weather didn’t exactly cooperate the first two days, windy with some rain but it didn’t seem to dampen the moods of the party goers as you’ll see in the following pictures.

  • Watch M83’s Full Coachella Set

    M83 is definitely one of our favorite new bands on the scene. I say new because the band has been making music for over a decade but it wasn’t until M83’s latest album “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming” was released in October 2011 that we really caught wind of them – better late than never, right? Here is video from their entire Coachella set. At one point Katy Perry jumps up on stage to make a quick guest appearance. On it’s surface a Katy Perry appearance sounds like it could have really lamed out their set but it only added to the fun.
