Coachella 2015

People on Drugs Review the Art at Coachella

By Aimee Murillo

When Coachella coverage bounces around every year, there's plenty of focus on the headliners, buzz bands, fashion, and the people in attendance, but very little mention is paid to the attractive visual art displays that dot the polo grounds. This year, 14 new installations made their debut at the festival and sparked interest and conversation among attendees. It seemed imperative to get some outside perspective on these pieces, and being that Coachella is event where it seems everyone's under the influence of something, we asked some people in their inebriated states to discuss their views of the art.

Turns out, festival goers can be pretty deep about art in their inebriated states (or really random), so these interviews have been edited a bit for length and clarity.
