If it’s blazingly sunny, skin-tingling hot, and your ears are being massaged by spectacular sounds, then you know it’s Coachella weekend. SPIN.com has its outpost set up at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort, just a stone’s throw from the Coachella gates, and all weekend long, Coachella performers will be stopping in for a quick interview and a respite from the sun. Below, SPIN.com’s Peter Gaston and Daniel Casanova give you the run down in the first of our Coachella video clips. Meanwhile, our Gregg LaGambina and Chad Wadsworth are at the fest, chronicling the action with words and images.
So stay tuned — it’ll be a stellar, long weekend out here in the desert.
You don’t have to be at Coachella to enjoy these sets. You can hang out with our pals at the AT&T blue room all weekend long for live webcasts from the Coachella stages. Note: Complete AT&T blue room webcast schedule not yet confirmed. Stay tuned to SPIN.com for AT&T blue room schedules for each day of Coachella ’07.
