Rain or shine the festival starts at 11 a.m. and goes until aftert midnight each day. not only is there a large line-up of musical talent such as 'Outcast, Muse, and Arcade Fire' but there will be activities restaurant pop-ups, craft food makers, a collection of clothing and collectibles, and lots more to keep everyone entertained.

Going to the Coachella Valley Festival this weekend consider taking some extra time, before or after, and visit some of the surrounding attractions such as;

1. Desert Christ Park which overlooks the high desert town of Yucca about 53 miles north of the Coachella Valley, is at 56200 Sunnyslope Dr Yucca Valley, CA. The highlights of this area are over 40 snow white statues and images portraying the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. This is the perfect time to visit as the park was originally dedicated on Easter Sunday in 1951. Admission to the historical park is free and it is open during daylight hours all year.

2. Landers is just beyond Yucca Valley, about 59 miles from the Coachella Valley, This is where you will find the 'Intergration' at 2477 Belfield Blvd, a place where George Van Tassle created the "Intergration Signature Experience". This is a sound bath that gives deep relaxation, rejunevation and introspection during 60 minutes of combined music from crystal bowls played live and recorded music. Check out this interesting experience here.
