However, Coachella 2018 has made Absolut Vodka their official Vodka!

Coachella was founded by Paul Tollett and Rick Van Santen and is organised by Anschutz Entertainment Group.The first Coachella Festival was 9th-10th October 1999 and their headliners were: Beck, Tool, Rage Against the Machine, The Chemical Brothers and Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals. Each ticket was only $50 and 25,000 people attended, however, they were hoping for 70,000 people to attend, because of this, Coachella made a loss of $850,000 and didn’t put on a festival in 2000, because it struggled to survive as a company, because of the massive loss. In 2001, Coachella made a return and had headliners such as: Jane’s Addiction, Fatboy Slim, Weezer, The Chemical Brothers and Paul Oakenfold. It was $65 per day, over a period of 2 days, 35,000 people attended, meaning that it had grown in size since their first event. Ever since 2001, Coachella has been running annually and each year, the event gets bigger, better and more popular with performers, celebrities going to watch and people who just want an awesome weekend! It has extended from a 2 day event to 3 days and this year, it starts on 13th April and ends on 22nd April! A whole 2 weekends full of fantastic music, where almost, if not over 200,000 people will attend! There is a variety of music that is played at Coachella, including: EDM (Electronic Dance Music), Indie, Rock and Hip Hop.
