全球節慶 | 本集 精彩教學影片(講解老師:Shane & Bernice 老師)

A must-attend event for lovers of music, art, fashion, and fun

    The Coachella Festival is one of the world’s largest events for music, art, and fashion. When the festival began in 1999, it was a two-day event centering on alternative music. Tickets were only US$50, with parking and a bottle of water included. Attendance was low, so the organizers lost a lot of money in the first year. However, they followed their vision, improved some details, and came back in 2001 with greater success.

    Coachella is hosted every year in Indio, California. The first event was held in October, but audiences and performers found the weather too hot. In 2001, the dates of the festival were changed to April. Now, Coachella marks the beginning of festival season on the West Coast, and it has become an important destination for artists and fans. Ticket prices have increased with the scale of the festival, and it has grown to a large event that takes place on six stages over the course of two weekends. Many people stay at the campground or arrive in a vehicle that they can also sleep in. About half a million people attend the festival every year.

音樂、藝術、時尚及娛樂愛好者必訪的音樂節
  科切拉音樂節是世界上最大的音樂、藝術和時尚活動之一。該音樂節於 1999 年開始舉辦時,是個為期兩天、聚焦於另類音樂的活動。門票僅要價五十美元,包含停車費和一瓶水。出席人數很少,所以主辦單位第一年就損失了很多錢。然而,他們遵循自己的願景,改善了一些細節,並在 2001 年捲土重來且大獲成功。
  科切拉音樂節每年在加州的印地奧舉行。首屆活動是在十月舉行,但觀眾和表演者認為天氣太炎熱了。2001 年,音樂節的日期更改至四月。如今,科切拉音樂節代表美國西海岸音樂季的開始,並成為藝人與歌迷重要的去處。票價隨著音樂節的規模擴大而上漲,音樂節已發展成一項大型活動,在兩個週末的期間於六個舞臺舉行。許多人會在露營地過夜或行駛可在裡面睡覺的車輛抵達現場。每年約有五十萬人參加這場音樂節。
