The Faces of Coachella: 8 People Who Embodied the Music Festival Utopia - EDM.com - The Latest Electronic Dance Music News, Reviews & Artists
Fall in love with these festival gems.

Aside from the amazing music, my favorite part of Coachella are the people. 

Being one of the biggest festivals in the world and the most anticipated event of the year, Coachella cultivated a rainbow festival enthusiasts. The holy land has manifested itself into a lifestyle event, becoming the mecca of fashion, food and great music, old and new. 

Last weekend at Coachella, I met a chef, a devil, a fashionista, a Coachella veteran, a Pinterest enthusiast, a Cardi B fanatic, a Virginia native and an inflatable Tootsie Roll lover… (uh you’ll understand later). 

These people were all unique in their own way but all shared a similar commonality, the love for a new experience. Some of them made me laugh, some surprised me and some left me... a little confused. LOL. 

Check out these 8 beautiful people who embodied the music festival utopia!
