music Coachella: Not a music festival anymore?


Recommended Posts

Everypony here has probably heard of Coachella and are aware that it's currently going on. But what you aren't aware of is how the focus has shifted from the musicians and artists and onto whatever celebrities are going to show up, what fashion will be worn, what will be trending, etc. Being at the event carries more weight than going and actually seeing someone perform. It's become a red carpet type of attraction. 

This wouldn't be a problem, if it wasn't so successful. People are paying a fortune just to brag that they were at Coachella and that business model may translate to other festivals. It's already made it's way to Woodstock. 

So what do you all think of Coachella focusing on anything other than music and should we be worried that it's focus on celebrities, fashion and pop culture may effect how other music festivals function?
