The big wheel in the desert turns again…
No other music festival in the world generates as much excitement as the “Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival” in Indio (California) on the outskirts of Los Angeles. The three-day musical show has been taking place in the desert since 1999.
After having had to be canceled for the past two years due to the corona virus, the Ferris wheel – the secret symbol of Coachella – is finally turning again. This year’s headliners include Harry Styles (28, “As it was”), Billie Eilish (20, “Bad Guy”). Swedish House Mafia (“Don’t You Worry Child”) and The Weeknd (“Blinding Lights”).
But not only does the music trigger real tears of joy from many celebrities and influencers, but the huge art sculptures that are spread throughout the festival area also want to be immortalized in selfies. The hippie look, worn by many visitors, is also legendary: cowboy hats, batik tops and fringed vests are just as popular as holey shirts, floral dresses and rustic boots.
Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio (41) is one of Coachella’s biggest fans. The hardcore fan has already arrived and posed with her friends and ex-footballer Milan Blagojevic (52) for a souvenir photo.
A week ago, the cancellation of rapper Kanye West (44), who was booked as one of the main actors of Coachella, caused a stir. West didn’t give a reason for his sudden cancellation.
Above all, his private issues with ex-wife Kim Kardashian (41) should be behind it all. Among other things, he argued with her via social media and threatened her new friend Pete Davidson (28).
Canadian singer The Weeknd (32), real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, replaced West. His appearance is expected as the grand finale on Sunday night.
