Well dirty dancers of the best coast, it is that time of year again when we all venture to the arid lands of Indio, California. The Polo Fields await the masses of people that will swarm the festival grounds within 24 hours. With so much to see in just one weekend, we advise you to get your schedule right so you can see as much of the great tunage as possible.
SATURDAY = WEAR YOUR GDD SHIRT DAY! We will have surprises for the people we see rockin them.
We would also like to announce that 10 of 11 members of Gotta Dance Dirty™ will be in attendance, and you better believe there will be a little league photo-op organized (Sorry Freddie, we know you’re there in spirit!).
I know I said I’d have a mix for you in time, but I honestly didn’t get what I would have wanted done for you. It will be a spring mix that will come very shortly, I promise. BUT! To hold you over and more importantly to get you’re engines revved, our good buddy Ecto-Cooler has put together a huge Coachella Mix for you dirty dancers. Download from the soundcloud icon!
