Coachella Is So Popular, They’re Probably Expanding To The Fall

first_imgRegardless of your musical preferences, most everyone is familiar with Coachella. The annual event has become a mainstay in the festival circuit, attracting so many fans that they added a second weekend back in 2012, and haven’t looked back since. In fact, according to a new report, they’re looking forward at a third Coachella event to be held in the fall.According to the Phoenix Desert Sun, Coachella promoters Goldenvoice have an agreement with the city of Indio, CA to hold up to five events there, annually. Between the two Coachella weekends and Stagecoach Country Music Festival, there’s still room for two more events on the calendar. Those two events could be the fall counterparts to Coachella and Stagecoach, if all goes to plan.The report says that “significant progress” has been made on the additional events, with the city eager to expand its reputation as “The City of Festivals.” According to Indio mayor Glenn Miller, “It brings a different group into the community that wouldn’t be here in the summer heat, so it brings in money, business and jobs to the city.”Considering the estimated $1.4 million that each festival brings to the town, it seems quite reasonable to believe that more Coachellas are coming to Indio soon. Not to mention the Panorama Festival event that Goldenvoice is bringing to New York, NY. Good festival tidings are ahead.This year’s Coachella boasts a lineup with Guns N Roses, LCD Soundsystem and Calvin Harris at the top.[Via The Desert Sun]last_img read more

ICC World Cup ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Joe Root slams 15th century to put England on course vs Pakistan

first_imghighlights For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Joe Root became the first centurion in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as he and Jos Buttler, who is also nearing a century put England in the driver’s seat in the clash against Pakistan at Trent Bridge on Monday. Root, the Test skipper, played brilliantly and notched up his 15th century and seventh at home and shared a partnership of 130 with Buttler to put England on course to achieve the highest successful chase in the history of the World Cups. Root came to bat when Jason Roy had been trapped LBW by Shadab Khan for 8 and he started off with a bang by cutting the legspinner for a boundary to the third man fence.In the fifth over bowled by Mohammad Amir, Root edged a full ball and Babar Azam at slip put down a simple chance. At that time, Root was on 9 and he made Pakistan pay. Despite losing the aggressive Jonny Bairstow for 32, Root ensured he scored at a steady pace and his strike-rate was over 100 for most of the innings. The Yorkshire right-hander calmly notched up his fifty and despite losing Ben Stokes, Root found great company in Jos Buttler.With Buttler finding the boundary on a regular basis, Root found confidence by blasting a six off Shoaib Malik and the partnership with Buttler went past 100. Root neared his century when he pulled Hasan Ali to the deep square leg fence for a boundary and he quickly made progress through the nineties. Root reached his century in calm fashion by chopping Wahab Riaz to the off side and getting a single for his seventh century at home.The partnership with Buttler looked to take the game away from Pakistn but on 107, Root cut a quick and short delivery from Shadab Khan to be caught at backward point by Mohammad Hafeez. Earlier, Pakistan notched up 348/8, their second-highest score in World Cups thanks to a brilliant knock of 84 from Mohammad Hafeez and attacking fifties from Sarfaraz Ahmed and Babar Azam. England had won their earlier game against South Africa by 104 runs while Pakistan got their tournament off to a poor start by losing heavily to the West Indies. A win for England will put them in a great position while a victory for Pakistan will revive their campaign after a very tough match against the West Indies.center_img Joe Root smashed his 15th century in ODIs.Root and Jos Buttler shared a century partnership.Pakistan’s 348/8 is their second-highest score in World Cups.last_img read more
