What To Do Between Coachella Festival Weekends

posted by Laura Baker-Finch on April 12, 2012

What would make heading to Coachella Music and Arts Festival an even better music experience? Seeing more artists and shows between the two festival weekends, of course! Whether you're lucky enough to attend both weekends and thus need to kill some time for the week between, have a few days to spare before or after the one weekend you are attending, or just reside in the general Los Angeles area - these events are for you.

We've compiled some great shows going on during the two week span of Coachella, mainly in Los Angeles. Most feature artists that can also be found at the festival - Nero at Club Nokia, We Were Promised Jetpacks at The Echo, and Jeff Mangum at the Orpheum Theatre, for example. Thus they're great for Coachella attendees and non-festivalgoers alike. These shows provide the perfect opportunity for those not attending the festival to get a taste of the lineup and for Coachella festivalgoers to relive a fantastic set or catch an artist they missed due to a schedule clash.

Check out our Coachella Events Listings Page for the complete list of shows. We've excluded those that are already sold out, but if you want to try your luck finding tickets for some on sites such as Craigslist, you can check out a more comprehensive event calendar for the Coachella two week span here, courtesy of Goldenvoice Presents April 2012.

For another way to spend your week between Coachellas, consider playing a round of golf - Coachella Valley is famous for it! Head over to our Pro's Guide to Golfing Coachella Valley for some course suggestions.
