Women lie on the grass listening to Irish singer-songwriter Hozier at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Organised against the backdrop of the Southern California desert, Coachella is the first major date on the summer live music calendar.

The annual desert festival, which began in 1999 as a celebration of indie and alternative rock, has grown into one of the top music events in North America, drawing crowds of more than 80,000 people.
