Coachella’s enchanting spirit means the festival makes its way onto the top of many bucket lists - and for good reason!

The Colorado Desert venue with its blue-toned mountains, tropical palm trees, magical pink and purple sunsets, and the iconic ‘Le Grande Wheel’ lit up in fairy lights at night make for some of the most picturesque sights you’ll ever see at a music festival!
