to choose between Coachella and Bonnaroo?
The lineup: Knowing who’s on the bill may help you decide. For the time being, Bad Bunny is only available at Coachella. Bonnaroo, on the other hand, has Kendrick Lamar and the Foo Fighters. In addition, a more diverse lineup with more country acts is likely.
Do you prefer the desert or the farm? Coachella takes place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, which is located in the Sonoran desert about 130 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. Choose Bonnaroo if you prefer camping. It is set on a 700-acre farm in Tennessee, about 60 miles southeast of Nashville. You can camp at Coachella, but there are also numerous hotels nearby.
Weather: The desert can get hot. However, it can be hot and humid in Tennessee in June.
