In a few days, music lovers from all over head to the Indio desert of California for the 17th edition of Coachella, two back-to-back weekends of bands, artists and DJs at what's been deemed by many as the holy grail of festivals.

Radiohead, Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar top the line-up this year, bolstered by impressive support acts like The XX, Richie Hawtin, Hans Zimmer, Skepta, Dixon, Loco Dice, The Belleville Three and many, many more.

The festival is consistently revered for its line-ups that capture a tell-tale snapshot of the most exciting acts across each year since its inaugural edition in 1999. Mixmag dug up some treasured photos from acts across the ages at Coachella including vintage shots of Richie Hawtin playing the first Coachella, The Prodigy in 2002, memorable moments emblazoned in dance music history like Daft Punk's pyramid stage in 2006, Tupac's revival in 2012 and more.

Flip through Coachella photos and revisit the festival across the years above.
