Cochella CA

Often misspelled as Cochella; Coachella, California is a small, agriculture desert town just east of Indio, way out past the green lawns of Palm Springs CA. Date palm groves, on the north edge of the Salton Sea. No one had ever heard of this area before the large, commercial, music festival took over. This concert event is a SoCal ritual for Spring, out in the desert east of Los Angeles; it attracts thousands every year with top performers always headlining.
