Playlist: Our Hits From Coachella 2016
Since 1999, every year in April the world of music and fashion gathers in Indio, California. In the Coachella Valley, to be precise, the place after which one of the most spectacular festivals on the calendar is named. This year brings the eagerly awaited comeback of Guns N’Roses – just one of the highlights at Coachella 2016. It took us a whole afternoon to listen to songs from the entire line-up, but we did it. So here it is, the official Allude festival playlist. Enjoy!
