Meanwhile, Variety reports that Soul'd Out Productions have recently filed an antitrust lawsuit against Coachella, AEG Presents, and Goldenvoice, claiming that the festival's radius clause, which restricts where artists are allowed to play before and after an event, is akin to an illegal monopoly.
So its the first weekend of Coachella, and once again they're bringing an insanely diverse line-up so there's literally something for everyone.
Nicholas F. Aldrich, one of Soul'd Out's lawyer stated that since the festival (Coachella) sells out months in advance, it doesn't benefit much. Youtube will be live streaming the music festival for the eighth year. Harris and Abdulhadi reached out to Goldenvoice to ask for a waiver, but the rep refused to give them one. With over 100,000 fans attending each of its two weekends, Coachella is a premier festival destination attracting visitors from across the region and around the world.
"The unlawful radius clause in their contracts with Coachella as the sole reason they can not do so", said Aldrich in reference to the artists they invited. When not airing live performances, SiriusXM will air highlights from the previous day, as well as continuously playing the music of emerging and established artists who are scheduled to perform at Coachella. Kygo, Cash Cash, Alison Wonderland, and Party Favour are amongst the sets that you will be able to experience through the airwaves. Every year, the festival takes place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire's Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert. In number 22 is Pharrell Williams' 2014 performance of "Hollaback Girl" with Gwen Stefani.
In 2012, M83 performed "Midnight City", and the band's routine has been ranked as the top 20 best show at Coachella.
