The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2011 is this weekend, in case you were wondering why that guy with the ironic mustache riding a fixed gear bike was suddenly peeing in his ironically tight pants. With headliners like Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire and Kanye West, this year’s concert should be an amazing weekend of great music, terrific weather and too many Ray-Ban sunglasses.
But let’s be a little more realistic: do you really want to brave the elements to watch countless bands perform outside? By elements, we’re talking about exorbitantly priced passes, then even more cash for camping or a hotel room, hours of traffic on the 10 freeway to make it out to the desert, and absolutely no refunds if something bad happens. Plus, you have to shop for a new Coachella 2011 appropriate wardrobe, which means last year’s t-shirt with that 80’s throwback graphic from Threadless won’t work. Can you imagine wearing the same American Apparel outfit twice? Totally embarrassing.
Also, it doesn't help that the music festival is completely sold out. Don't worry though, because that doesn't mean you're out of luck! This year, we bring you the option of staying home without losing out on the Coachella experience, thanks to games like Rock Band, Guitar Hero, DJ Hero and Def Jam Rapstar. Yes, this means you can enjoy the music while also staying indoors with the air conditioning on full blast while not getting trampled by hordes of drunk hipsters. Check out some of the bands playing at Coachella 2011 that available on your video game console for you to start up Living Room Music Festival 2011 right now.
