Set around the eight stages, and while music keeps its dominance at the festival, a series of very innovative large-scaled art installations sits at the core of the festival that ca make the event more exciting and be experienced. 

Coachella presents several real-time events as well as music and artistic sculptures including food & beverages, on-site camping, off-site camping, competitions and sustainability and charity activities.

Even though the main focus is of course the music, with dozens of acts performing, from reunited crowd-pleasers like Guns N’ Roses and LCD Soundsystem, to contemporary artistic installations are the most funny part of Coachella. Coachella's installations turn into an art game throughout the festival designed by well known artists from all around.
