The first weekend at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California nearly blew everyone in the desert, literally. The wind was so bad that it almost turned the music festival into a dust bowl. Headling artists, Pharrell Williams and Lorde, drew some of the biggest crowds at the Outdoor Theatre Stage despite the gusty winds. However, it looked as though everyone was generally having a good time. Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Gwen Stefani made surprise appearances, which was amazing. I think it’s safe to say that concert goers hope that the wind doesn’t make any more surprise appearances and try to ruin the festival next weekend for weekend two.
