coachoose your own adventure



the folks over at
coachella.com have a nifty little app (coachooser) to help you map out your plan of attack this weekend (i think there is one for your iphone as well). this makes it a heck of a lot easier to make my picks/recommendations (bold outline in pics below) for all of you. you’ll notice that some of my picks overlap with others. it was too hard for me to decide, so i’m leaving it up to you.


unfortunately, i won’t be able to attend this years festival, but i hope all of you that do have a fantastic time.


friday picks

saturday picks
