A mega gallery of portraits of Coachella performers, from Alt-J to The xx.
Coachella has become an institution. With more than 140 bands and artists, playing two weekends in the middle of the desert two hours from LA, the festival is a massive and hectic experience in every way, even more so for the artists. That's why we sent photographer Catie Laffoon out to capture them in this unique environment. What she came back with does not seem humanly possible -- intimate photographs of dozens of artists in the makeshift and often serendipitous studio of the Coachella festival grounds. Enjoy.
