Let’s face it – it is nearly impossible to scroll through any form of social media during the weekends of April 14-23 without seeing floods of content surrounding “one of the most critically acclaimed” music and arts festivals in the world – Coachella. Since its first show in 1999 – a two-day event drawing a crowd of about twenty thousand each day, losing close to one million dollars – Coachella’s increasing popularity has evolved so much that by 2012 it offered a second-weekend of the festival. Currently, the sold-out event draws crowds of about 600,000[4] and is known to be one of the most profitable music festivals in the United States and all over the world.
