Music is in the air this month in California’s very own “City of Festivals,” Indio, California. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, commonly known simply as Coachella, kicks-off the festivities today with a three-day extravaganza of rock music, art, films and camping ending on April 17th. The musical mayhem ensues with Stagecoach, a country music festival, which takes place April 30th – May 1st.
It was hot and heavy in the desert as the California Country Music Festival played on this past weekend. Despite the heat that you could probably fry an egg in, Stagecoach-goers still wore their country bests with boots and hats galore. On my way to Stagecoach I had wondered what sort of fashion sense these country folk might have, and I was pleasantly surprised to see such a plethora of styles and trends--not to mention shirtless cowboys and bikini-clad babes.
