Photos & Words | Coachella

Yesterday was day one of Coachella, and Uphoric has got you covered from the utter epicness that this festival is. Coachella boasts everything from gorgeous views (scenery, art and people) to a lineup that brings the best of dance music, modern pop and classics to their 5+ stages. This year’s offering includes the reunion of LCD Soundsystem and Guns N Roses along with pop and dance mega, Calvin Harris. Sprinkled across the other stages include countless fan favorites in every genre. Check out some of our photo highlights from weekend one below and stay tuned for more.


Pool unicorns bask in the desert sun in the early afternoon at the Galore Magazine party where we started our day


Up close and personal with JayKode, one of the early acts to rock the DoLab stage at Coachella


All hands up for JayKode


The DoLab stage is arguably the most artistic in the festival world, like a rainbow festival creature


Thousands move around the festival in the mid-day sun


Shadows grow long as the sun begins to set over the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival

Heineken House rocking in the afternoon


Drenched in green, the Heineken House is the ideal place to cool off with a beer in the hot afternoon desert sun…


…oh, and the music is great too!

The Heineken House was slammed for Crizzly’s set

The iconic Coachella ferris wheel looms above the festival grounds in the hazy afternoon sun


This festival is chock full of interesting art installations and incredible scenery


Of Monsters and Men play out to a massive crowd at the Coachella Main Stage


One of the massive installations reads Besame Mucho – sitting at the back of the Main Stage area


A$AP Rocky brought a massive crowd to the Outdoor stage – we couldn’t even get close


Underworld effectively tore the roof off of the Sahara tent, nobody was standing still, everyone was dancing


Ellie Goulding lit up the Coachella Main Stage with hit after hit


Jack Ü (Skrillex x Diplo) debuted a massive new production last night at the Outdoor stage, the likes of a massive classic mac computer adorned the stage with the super DJs sitting on top


One of the most anticipated acts of the weekend, the official reunion of LCD Soundsystem graced MainStage with some of their classics as well as some surprise covers (of Guns and Roses and the late David Bowie)


We started off our second day by heading to the BMF pool party, complete with flower crowds, #WHHSH beer and flying hamburgers


Icona Pop even stopped by for a few songs and a drink


After the sun set, we wandered over to Coachella, where Halsley had just gotten to the Outdoor stage


Her set was literally on fire


We then ran over to the Sahara tent to catch the last few minutes of Vince Staples…


…before Snails took the stage and slaughtered everyone with bombs of bass


Walking back to the Main Stage (to catch GnR) we saw a commotion happening in the smallest Coachella stage, the Gobi stage


Upon further inspection, we saw that it was Rüfüs Du Sol tearing the roof off the place


We passed by some funky artwork under the twinkle of the desert sky (and some flying balloons)


Finally, the main event, GnR took the stage together (back again after many long years)
