Coachella dominates global festival list
To nobody’s surprise, Coachella was ranked the highest-grossing music festival in the world at $84 million in revenue in 2015. It is so far in the lead that #2 is Outside Lands at just $24 million.
With VIP tickets running $899 and attendance soaring to almost 200,000 music-lovers, it’s no wonder that Coachella dominates the list. In sunny Indio, CA, the event pops off every April and features huge headliners from multiple genres. In 2016, LCD Soundsystem, Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding, Jack U, A$AP Rocky, and even Guns ‘n Roses will take the stage, among dozens of other big-name artists.
The lineup has been released for Beyond Wonderland 2016 in SoCal!

What’s unique about Beyond Wonderland is the set design and theatrics of each stage. The four stages this year are Queens Domain, House of Cards, Cheshire Woods, and Other Realm. Be there on March 18-19 to camp under the stars outside of San Bernadino, California and go down the rabbit hole like Alice… who knows what you’ll find?

Yes, you read that correctly. Dubstep headliner Excision posted this pic on social media showing an Acura trying to cram itself through the main doorway of the venue Distrikt in Victoria, B.C.

Japanese Company releases greatest festival tent ever…
Ever been camping at a festival and your group is spread out over a dozen tiny little cheap backpacker tents? You forget who is who and you keep harassing strangers by banging on the wrong tent door looking for your friends?
Well, now you can get your crew under one huge roof with the “Decagon Modular” made by the Japanese manufacturer “Logos”. Complete with multiple car ports, this tent creates one secure space for your group to make base camp at Coachella or Beyond Wonderland.
Separate modules can be connected into one giant and awesome monstrosity, complete with dining room. Or they can be assembled separately if people want privacy.
Right now it hasn’t hit the market yet, officially, but keep tabs on it and snag one for next festival season...your friends will thank you!
