The Coachella Music and Arts Festival is one of the most visually and aurally stunning festivals in North America and after not only one, but two successful weekends in 2012, a newly announced cruise-festival-hybrid, and 2013 advanced passes that sold-out a year in advance - there's no doubt Coachella is among the most successful as well.
