Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival

This pas weekend had to be one of the most memorable weekends of my life. Friday morning at 6 am my mom, sister, friends and I all set out on a road trip to the desert. Our destination was to the Coachella music festival in Indio, held yearly in April. I had been looking forward to this weekend since I got my tickets on the pre-sale months ago. And I was most definitely not disappointed.

Santa Barbara Bowl: Music, Good Vibes, and a View

We are lucky enough to have a gorgeous concert venue here in SB. The Santa Barbara bowl hosts a large variety of artists where locals of all ages can enjoy the music and nice atmosphere the bowl provides. This venue is outdoors and located on SB’s riviera, so that concert goers also have a perfect view of the ocean during the concert season, from around April to October.

IMG_3603My first time visiting the bowl was during September this year to watch the Lumineers perform. Although my seat for this concert was at the very top of the bowl, I was able to enjoy it all the same. The seats were perfect for this mellow concert, where I could just sing along to some of my favorite songs and enjoy the presence of my little sister and my mom, who accompanied me to this concert.

The second concert I’ve seen at the bowl was Passion Pit, which was SUCH a fun concert. The combination of being with a great group of girls, being in the pit and the great music made for a perfect night. Having a general admission ticket is by far the best place to be when it comes to an up beat, dancey concert like Passion Pit. The performance was amazing.

The seating chart for the bowl pictured to the left. Although the seats in the back seem soo far away from the front, the bowl is actually pretty small. No matter where you’re seated for a concert you can still feel close to the performer.
