Thank you for your understanding.


I've always loved music and events. It has always been my dream to work a massive event and, this past April, my wish came true: I worked Guest Services for Coachella & Stagecoach 2017. I attended the job fair Goldenvoice had during the month of February and was one of the fortunate people who was called back. It was one of the coolest experiences in my life! 💁🎡🌴🎶

I've attended Coachella before as a guest, but it was really fun to work behind-the-scenes and meet so many amazing people in the process. I can't say enough good things about everyone who was part of our team. Every single one of the people working there loved working there and being a part of something so big & fun!

In here, I want to share with you the fun we had working both events (Coachella & Stagecoach).
Enjoy! 😘

COACHELLA
WEEKEND 1

This was the craziest day of the entire 3 weekends. It's the very first day of Coachella!
There is an incredible amount of energy in the air. Everyone (guests & employees alike) are excited to get the festival season started...

I worked inside the Rose Garden (a.k.a. VIP 2). I was stationed in Kiosk #4 for the entire 3 weeks. We got to meet a bunch of people from all walks of life, had some very interesting conversations, and worked while having fun along the way. We also got to see & meet some celebrities too. It was amazing! 😊 My favorite celebrity that we talked to was Paul Tollett who was there with his friends walking the grounds and taking in all the sights. 

The best part of the whole thing was that I made wonderful friends and connections in the process. These are people who I am still in touch with to this day. I cherish that more than anything else from the entire experience.
