Coachella 2014 was as much of a social gathering, as it was an arts and music festival, this year. I have been to numerous Coachellas, starting with the first annual, Coachella ’99 – and I have always enjoyed just being a fan. I felt that this year’s Coachella definitely put people’s appetite for individualistic social media on display. Littered with eye-popping outfits and hard-bodies, drones and GoPros, and selfie shutterbugs – Coachella was dominated by EDM – and yet, high profile DJs like Skrillex, Flosstradamus, and Calvin Harris were the observers. In this pop culture movement, the entertaining line between performer and audience is blurred.
