 Time to bust out your best flower crown and hope that the Tupac hologram will make an appearance. Coachella, the hugely ballyhooed annual music festival in California’s Colorado Desert, is back with another stacked food and drink lineup. The first weekend of the festival just wrapped up, but the second sold-out weekend is coming up April 22-24. If you happen to have tickets and care about the food as much as the music, a series of dinners hosted with celebrated chefs such as Antonia Lofaso, Kris Morningstar, Francisco Ruano, Michael Voltaggio, Brendan Collins, Jamie DeRosa and more are available. In between watching LCD Soundsystem (no, James Murphy will not be supplying the festival’s wine) and Beach House, check out some of these food stalls because you need to feed and hydrate yourself while in the desert.
