  • 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.
