Investments and Improvements
The festival made several investments and improvements this year since there were problems the year before. Coachella tightened up security with wristbands that were scanned within entry. As dance music started exploding in the US this year, Coachella took notice and brought Skrillex, Afrojack, Steve Angello, Axwell, Duck Sauce and more to the festival.
