Let’s take it back allllll the way to the year 1993. Jurassic Park graced the silver screen that summer. Bill Clinton became president. Pearl Jam performed at the Empire Polo Club—while boycotting Ticketmaster for its service fees. Six years after Pearl Jam’s boycott, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was born.
The success of that first concert at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, led to Coachella becoming one of the most significant music festivals in the U.S. and around the world.
