My amazing younger daughter (the older one is amazing, too! ) called me yesterday to announce she just bought my birthday gift: 4 tickets to the 3-day Coachella concert in the desert in October. That is frikkin' awesome!
That is an amazing gift! And though you didn't ask for any suggestions, I would totally suggest getting a shuttle pass from the Valley Music Travel group. The shuttles have their own special route out of the venue, and it's pretty seamless (as they do it for all their festivals--Coachella has about 110K people, Stagecoach is closer to 80K). And we just stayed at La Quinta for Stagecoach last month, which is pretty much the closest resort that is available. And it was awesome. Plenty of pools, food, and space to relax. You will have an excellent, amazing time.
