Photos: Coachella Day Three
With this set, I felt like things had come full circle. The first show I shot for Pitchfork (back in October of last year) was Justice at Canes. The final show of Coachella that I shot for them was also Justice, in the Sahara tent.
Having shot them before, I knew that being in the photo pit would be useless – and probably also packed. So I scouted out the disabled platform (I’m probably going to hell for this), made friends with the security guard, and managed to get up there for 5 minutes to take some over-the-crowd shots. Mind you, I made sure not to stand in a single person’s way.
After that, I was on my way to my car. Leaving the polo field grounds, I heard Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.” floating across the air and thought that was the perfect note to leave things on. But then I heard someone blasting Daft Punk from their car stereo as I was walking towards my car. And then it took me only 10 minutes to get out of the lot and back on the road to Palm Springs.
