With midterms around the corner students are already thinking of ways to procrastinate. Coachella and Stagecoach being one of them.
These music celebrations range in different genres like Indie, Country, and Rap.
Festival season is a great way to meet and experience artists that are unlikely to be heard of otherwise.
Students elaborate on the festival favorites this year ranging from the main headliners to the rookies.
Calvin Harris’s “Feels so close,” inspired by Guns N’ Roses song “Sweet Child O Mine,” is a great addition to this playlist since both artists will be at Coachella, uniting two generations.
Electronic and techno songs by DJ’s like Zedd and Disclosure get everyone pumped as well as rap songs by Ice Cube and A$AP Rocky.
“Festivals are valuable because you get to see so many artists, three days of music lovers coming together,” said student Diego Gutierrez.
Newcomer to the Coachella lineup is Alessia Cara has lyrics that can make an outsider feel understood and connect with her audience.
“I really love Alessia Cara, she creates lyrics out of what you’re feeling inside,” said student Michelle Iraheta.
Music can be universal, by listening to songs that relate to you, and concerts create an environment that bring people together who share the same love of music as you.
“Listening to music alone is personal but when you are at a concert you are with people that enjoy the same music, and are singing along with you and back to the artist.” said student Diaz Jackson.
Be sure to listen to this playlist to get the same feel, even if you aren’t going to a music festival this season.
