Meet our good friend Alden.
We love Alden: she just got back from weekend one at Coachella music festival, and she took the time to chat with us about music, style and Luna Flor. What’s Luna Flor, you ask? Read on to find out…
Who were your favorite acts from weekend 1?
Hard to say! But I was so stoked to see Major Lazer, Zella Day, Rhye, BORNS, Bob Moses and A$AP Rocky.
What’s your #1 Festival Style Don’t?
Don’t wear something that makes you so uncomfortable you can’t enjoy the festival…no doubt one of my favorite things about Coachella is running around, not being held back and feeling free. It’s not worth it to “suffer for fashion” at a special event like this.
If you could permanently ban flower crowns, would you? What would you like to see replace them?
I would definitely ban them (sorry to offend anyone!) In a world were anything is possible, I would like to see everyone have a headpiece or accessory that could somehow emulare their most creative thoughts and true happiness. That might sound insane, but it would be such a joy to see, and not to mention fascinating! I’d like to see crazy stars, moons and feather headpieces replace flower crowns. What does that look like specifically? See for yourself:
Sandals or booties?
In terms of running around the festival…sandals all the way!! I run fast when I’m trying to catch my favorite bands, or when I just want to jump and play.
Snapchat or Instagram?
That’s a hard one…Instagram allows me to create a real photo which I love, and snapchat is so good for catching playful and crazy moments as they come. I would probably say Instagram, just because I find that Snapchat is nonstop and tends to take me away from being in the moment when I get a little overboard with it.
If you had the opportunity to organize a new music festival, what would it be called?
That’s another hard one…! I could spend 3 months figuring that out. But off the top of my head, let’s go with Lunar Flora.
Where would it go down? Who’s on the lineup?
It would go down in the desert, maybe Yucca Valley. It would have rad desert houses, tepees, air streams, and tents all around. Bonfires, food trucks, art installations, art stations where people can paint and make things…everything you could ever want to do!
In terms of lineup, I’d try and book artists like Khruangbin, Fleetwood Mac, Allah Las, The Growlers, The Lumineers, Kygo, Sorcha Richardson, Alina Baraz, Alt-J, Odesza, Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Leon Bridges and MO.
