Movie Info

Filmmaker Drew Thomas brings California's popular Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival to the screen with a different kind of musical documentary that not only showcases performances by some of the hottest acts to take the stage, but offers interviews with such musical icons as Beck, Joshua Homme, Mos Def, and Perry Farrell as well. From English icon Morrissey's performance at the inaugural Coachella Festival back in 1999 to Canadian indie rockers the Arcade Fire's electric 2005 set, the musical acts featured here run the gamut from hip-hop to alternative and virtually everything in between. Other artists featured include the Pixies, the Flaming Lips, Kool Keith, Radiohead, Saul Williams, and Squarepusher.

  • Unlike D.A. Pennebaker's great concert documentaries such as Monterey Pop and Don't Look Back, Coachella doesn't quite capture the stretches of tedium and fits of excitement that come with actually being at an event like this ...

  • A well-made, if insignificant, film about a well-managed, significant music festival.

    Jun 11, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Captures some musical moments that are worth the price of admission and a box of popcorn, such as the Mars Volta going buck wild or the Pixies' triumphant showing in 2004.

    Apr 7, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Coachella" is an eminently worthy snapshot for contemporary music fans, not just of the festival but of the best in modern music
