Held in the desert setting of California's Coachella Valley, the first Coachella music festival took place in 1999. With a lineup that included Beck, Jurassic 5, and Rage Against the Machine, the original event attracted about 10,000 people across two days.
In 2012, the festival sold out in hours, featuring big-name headliners like Radiohead, The Black Keys, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg — plus a hologram projection of Tupac and surprise appearances by Eminem, Rihanna, Usher, and more. This year's big headliners include OutKast, Arcade Fire, and Pharrell.
