Coachella in Indio, California is the most famous music festival in the world.
However, the insider’s music team has discovered that it does not accurately indicate how reality will look on social media.
The area is dusty, food is expensive, and most of the day is spent sitting and weaving in the crowd.
The first taste of the festival is not very picturesque.
The walk from the parking lot is long, boring and very dusty.
Festival workers try to reduce dust with water, which often creates a puddle of mud.
Walkback gets worse.
Many people got lost trying to find their car and were forced to get through unmarked areas.
Some people took off their shoes because their legs hurt.
The festival procession is always long.
The line to buy products is particularly tough.
You can wait more than 40 minutes to buy expensive food.
This cheese pizza slice cost $ 11.
Ordering this french fries and onion rings costs $ 26.
The table and seating areas are so small that people usually eat on the ground.
In fact, people spend far more time sitting on the ground than you would expect.
The sun is so strong that people just sit in the shade and skip shows and activities.
It’s so hot that some people can’t stand approaching the stage even if they want to see a performance.
It can also be difficult to get to the stage due to the large VIP section that is banned from patrons.
Much of the day is spent weaving through the crowd.
Those crowds leave garbage everywhere.
The experience can be overwhelming and exhausting.
