Coachella wrapped its 20th anniversary celebration with the customary extravagance and flawlessness that makes it the highest grossing and most famous music festival on the planet.
The colossal event is a high-powered musical mechanism with over eight stages, immense art structures, involved campsites and numerous attractions that keep attendees plenty busy during its consecutive 72-hour weekend runs.
Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of massive stages like the Yuma Tent, Do LaB and Mojave, Hewlett-Packard returned to Coachella this year with a new Dreamland edition of its HP Lounge: a welcome and cool respite where Coachella revelers can relax, recharge, explore new technology and groove to a stellar line-up of dance music all-stars.
In collaboration with HP, Mixmag brought along a few favorites and some surprise guests to perform at the lounge during both weekends. With up-and-coming Southern California selectors paying alongside well-established DJ veterans, weekend one saw performances from the likes of Dâm-Funk, Machinedrum, Daedelus, Öona Dahl, Shigeto, Durante, Pilo, Mndsgn, Abi Getto, Sisters of Sound and more. The surprise guest of the weekend was none other than the mystical dancefloor enchanter, Blond:ish.
The line-up for the HP Lounge's second weekend brought along acts like Astronautica, Rosie 303, Holly and more. This was followed by a rowdy Repopulate Mars takeover with performances from label boss Lee Foss, Anabel Englund, Caleb Calloway and the Lisbona Sisters. On Sunday, the Desert Hearts crew turned things up a notch with consecutive sets from Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs and Rybo b2b Lubelski.
