10 Music Festivals to go to Other than Coachella

images.jpeg

Didn’t get Coachella tickets this year? YEAH, ME NEITHER. Don’t worry - you certainly weren’t alone. The Coachella 2018 general admission tickets sold out in a matter of seconds. Just to be clear, we’re not talking about days, hours or minutes, but SECONDS. You would think that for a festival expecting upwards of 250,000 people, there would be enough tickets to go around. Yet somehow, myself and hundreds of thousands of music lovers across the globe who waited in line on the Coachella website we’re exceedingly disappointed. And based off of the emotional distress I endured within the 45-minute period of waiting online in that stupid “dancing man” portal, no part of me is willing to suffer through the PTSD flashbacks just to try to MAYBE get tickets again for the spring of 2019. However, the good news is, there are plenty of amazing music festivals happening in 2018 that can fulfill the Coachella experience you and I won’t be having.
