Website Helps You Decide Whether or Not to Go to Coachella
Lots of Southern California residents have asked themselves, at some point in time, whether or not they should go to Coachella. Some consider hitting up the festival for the community, others for the music, still more for the drugs.
If you're going for the community or the drugs, you'll probably have a good time. But if you have the opportunity to get a ticket, even despite the fact that the festival sold out in three hours this year, you might want to know whether you'll actually like the bands or not before you give up a kidney to get there.
Fortunately, a website has been created that addresses this very question.
ShouldIGoToCoachella.com is a simple concept—it plays seven songs in a row from various Coachella artists, and you click "I like this" or "Not for me" to indicate whether you enjoyed the tune or not. The site then tells you whether you should hit up the six-day, two-weekend festival in Indio or not based on your answers.
