Weekend two of the year’s first big music festival, Coachella, is upon us. Last night, The Black Keys headlined for the second time. Tonight, Radiohead takes the stage, while Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg will round out another thrilling three days of aural hedonism tomorrow.
Cheapflights are big fans of Coachella. Check out the I Want to Wednesday feature posted a couple of weeks back for a quick lowdown on the festival. Sadly, despite our kind requests, pleas and even grovels, we weren’t able to secure ourselves one of the highly coveted weekend passes.
If you attended Coachella last weekend, you’re probably suffering from withdrawal symptoms already. Those who’ve been before but couldn’t get tickets will no doubt be overwhelmingly jealous of those partying hard as we speak and the rest of us are left with the feeling that we really ought to be at the Empire Polo Club this time next year.
We’re hoping this Coachella 2012 playlist will help you through the weekend, whether you need an outlet for your festival envy, a way to overcome withdrawals or basic inspiration to take the plunge and make the trip next year.
