The festival is split over two weekends and showcases many different genres of music, as well as installation art and sculptures. If you’re a music fan, you will definitely find the lineup extremely impressive. This year will see the likes of Drake, David Guetta, George Ezra, Florence and the Machine, and Jamie XX performing on its stages. In terms of food, expect to be amazed by the high level of quality and creativity in the dishes on offer. They also pay extra attention to different dietary needs, and will be catering vegan, raw vegan, kosher and gluten free food as well. In addition to the standard beverages that you would expend to find at a festival, you will also be able to enjoy curated cocktails, speciality wines, craft beers and much more.
Another exciting event happening this April in Palm Desert is the Indian Wells Art Festival, which has been voted as one of the best art shows by a variety of magazines. The festival takes place in the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, which is where the BNP Paribas Open Tennis Tournament is held, and is a $75 million state of the art facility that is surrounded by a backdrop of gorgeous mountain landscapes. Over 200 award winning artists will gather here to showcase their work. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, and you will be able to purchase them to take home with you. As well as traditional paintings and drawings, you will also be able to buy ceramics, sculptures, jewellery and other hand-crafted goods.

Since November, there has been an event on the first Friday of every month at El Paseo Boulevard called Cruise Night, where people could drive their cars to the location and cruise with other car owners. This event will only be taking place until May, so April is your last chance to enjoy the experience. For car enthusiasts, the event will be a delight for their eyes, with a vast array of classic vehicles on display. It is also a great social event, and you will be able to meet some friendly, likeminded people.
