Whether you’re lucky enough to be heading to the desert for three days of musical performances by both top and undiscovered artists or will be eagerly stalking your friends on social media for updates, Coachella is an event that captures the attention of Southern Californians like few other music events do.

The Coachella Valley is in Southern California, so it’s no surprise that many performers are from places you may have been to or recognize.

1. Kindred

San Diego-based Kindred will be serving up vegan cuisine at Coachella this year. If you have VIP tickets to Coachella, you can make reservations for the prix-fixe menu served in their desert lair. If you can’t make it out to the desert, head to their South Park restaurant and listen to this Coachella playlist. It will almost feel like you’re there.
