Best of Coachella 2012 – My Favs!

April 16, 2012

Gotta love modern technology. Anyone who couldn’t attend Coachella 2012 in person (like me!) was able to watch the entire festival live streamed on YouTube. Uploads of every moment have steadily poured in so you can catch it all by simply searching for it on YouTube or subscribing to Coachella’s official channel here.

I saw some AMAZING musicians. These were my ultimate favourites and why:

St. Vincent – I was inspired

Bon Iver – I cried

Mazzy Star – I remembered (nostalgia)

(waiting for an upload of her full set!)

Explosions In the Sky – I was mesmerized

YOUTUBE YANKED THE VID SO CHECK OUT THIS LIVE PERF FROM BELGIAM:

Radiohead – I re-lived (more nostalgia)

Those were my top 5! Other favs included Florence + the Machine, SBTRKT and Beats Antique. The dancers at Beats Antique were phenomenal!

I really could feel the energy of the crowd and the musicians through the screen. However, there’s nothing better than being there LIVE! All those emotions are magnified to overwhelming extents. I hope to be there within the next couple of years

St. Vincent was my main discovery. Annie Erin Clark’s approach to music floored me and filled me with inspiration. I love her voice, her energy and the raw nature of her lyrical delivery. A lot of her set reminded me of a poetry reading at an underground hot spot. She’s also outlandishly beautiful and brave. The crowd surfing at Coachella rocked!

I love festivals like Coachella, where music and unity are celebrated. ♥
