Today we have a guest post from our Coachella Corespondent, Anna Eschenburg. She tweets at @4sqdayCoachella and only needs a few more Coachella fans to RSVP so they get some killer foursquare swag! If you are going to the festival, check it out!
For those of you who are unaware, Coachella is a 3-day annual music and arts festival held in Indio, CA at the Empire Polo Fields. From the Gobi, Mojave and Sahara tents, to the Outdoor Theater & Main Coachella stage, Coachella’s selections are non-stop and feature music from many genres (mostly alternative, indie & electronic). Add 75,000 people plus 105-degree weather and you’ve got yourself a weekend full of awesome.
While Coachella on its own is an amazing event, this year on Saturday 4/16, we’re also going to be celebrating Foursquare Day. While our meetup may not be traditional, we’ll definitely have no problem unlocking that epic swarm badge (as long as service holds out from AT&T that is!)
And as long as we get 50 people in we get FREE gear from foursquare! Shirts, pins, stickers, and other great stuff! Join us here!
If you are attending, here are some of my favorite artists that are performing on Saturday: Two Door Cinema Club, The Love Language, Phosphorescent, Mumford & Sons, Laidback Luke, Jenny & Johnny, Foals, Empire of the Sun and of course Arcade Fire.
I certainly can’t wait to sit in the desert, rock my Foursquare Day shirt, while rocking out to Arcade Fire!
