The final countdown is on… Coachella starts this Friday, April 13th… and for the first time in it’s history, will repeat the following weekend on April 20th-April 22nd. Angie and I have had our share of Coachella experiences in the past… an event that needs to be done at least once… or several times in your life.
This years line up includes heavy hitters Radiohead, Black Keys, Bon Iver, The Shins, and some I’d really love to see, like SBTRKT, Flying Lotus, Justice, M.Ward and more, more, more. There is usually a last minute awesome performance from someone huge, who knows?
Nearly every year, we’ve collaborated with the Coachella Boutique to create fresh Poketo designs for one of the biggest music festivals in the world. This year, it’s a cool little notebook to ramble, jot, and draw your experiences, dreams, and hot weather hallucinations… and if you are practical, remember to write down the set lists from each of the shows. Here is a past Coachella shot of Angie figuring out our next move… writing times and sets on paper… proof that this little notebook is going to come in handy.
One thing I love about this book is that the graphics on each side is inverted from the other… so, when you pull out the notebook it’s oriented correctly. All you have to do is decide… Coachella or Dreams? I’m thinking Coachella Dreams.
Above are a few pics from Coachella 2009. That was a great year… we spent the day lounging poolside at the La Quinta, rolled into Coachella at dusk to catch Fleet Foxes and then ended the night with MSTRKRFT.
Below are some of the past Poketo x Coachella designs in years past…
