One of the annual extravaganzas in Southern California is the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival which starts this weekend April 11-13 and continues onto next weekend April 18-20. Last year, upwards of 90,000 people attended each day of the event. Featuring 166 music acts, including Beck, Ellie Goulding, Outkast, The Cult, and many others, the event also holds much significance for the fashion and culinary arts industries. In any case, Coachella is a big deal. Appropriately, the LA Times data desk produced some compelling data visualizations, “Coachella by the numbers,” which break down the performers by genre, gender, and geographic location. Check out the other visualizations HERE.
