Fodor's Review

Among Southern California's biggest parties, the festival draws hundreds of thousands of rock music fans to Indio each April for two weekends of live concerts. Headliners include acts such as Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Lorde, Phantogram, Jack Johnson, and Radiohead. Many attendees camp on-site, but to give your ears a rest post-concert you might want to stay at a nearby hotel. The festival sells out before the lineup is announced, so expect to pay big bucks if you haven't purchased tickets by late fall.
