By  |  0 Comments

If you’re going to Coachella this weekend, you’re bound to be wowed by the insanely diverse range of high-end food and big-name chefs like Chef Roy Choi.

Few things go better together than great music and great food, and festivals like Coachella are raising the culinary bar to a whole new level. From gourmet pizza to multi-course meals, there’s something for everyone.

We remember going to Coachella in 2003 and there wasn’t a single vegan station on the property. Times have changed!

Check out this food-inspired Coachella poster by & Food is the New Rock.
