    Question Coachella & Electronic Music

    My favorite aspect about Coachella is the tremendous variety of music spanning so many genres and styles! I feel like it's not only a festival for me to enjoy what I already love, but also the chance check out bands and performers I may not otherwise discover or see live.

    With that said, I'm just curious about how you guys feel about the inclusion and rise of dance music artists/DJs at this festival over the years. Last year was actually my first time and by and large I felt Coachella's community was very accepting of EDM, our culture, and I felt very welcome there! However, I did overhear and notice some resentment against "rave music" and how it shouldn't be at the festival.

    What are your feelings?

    Maybe take a look at some of the initial lineups of Coachella before penning this sort of hard hitting journalism?

    Also, a quick journalism note, you should usually specify about who you are including when you use the term "our" as a possessor. Designating ownership over something is usually a tepidly perilous endeavor.

    Well I saw the lineup of course and a few of the topics on here! I'll be there the second weekend and I'm just trying to get a general sense of people's attitudes here regarding how the festival has evolved.

    There were just as many EDM artists last year as this year. Look at Coachella's past lineups.

    Maybe try reading things that have been posted on here for years before posting your own self indulgent thread.

    Yeah I was there last year at Sahara when Paul McCartney was raging on stage with Afrojack! As a huge fan myself, I loved knowing that a Beatle loves this weird and energetic music.

    Electronic music has always been and always will be a huge part of Coachella. In fact, one could say the festival started out electronic-heavy and is only now leaning more towards indie/alternative acts. Do your research brudduh.

    It's not an offensive thing. I am literally giving you advice as to how journalism and figuring out things and learning works. Do some research if you're interested in learning certain things about a certain place, experience, and source of information.

    The majority of people on this board are huge dicks. Pay no mind, there is literally nothing you couldve written in the OP that someone wouldnt have scoffed at.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm new here and relatively new to Coachella too (this will be my second year in a row).
