The 20th anniversary of Coachella promised an exciting lineup. Fashion-minded folk from far and wide flocked to Indio, California, to kick up some dust in the desert, as their favorite artists took the stage. The 2019 headliners included Childish Gambino, Tame Impala, and Ariana Grande, but performances from BLACKPINK, Lizzo, Weezer, and Parcels surely pleased the crowds. As did an impromptu NSYNC reunion and Coachella debuts by a number of leading ladies — including Billie Eilish, Rosalía, Soccer Mommy, and Clairo. Not only has Coachella become the biggest music festival in the country, but its attendees, many of whom return year after year, have come to define festival fashion as we know it. For better, or for worse. And the perfectly sunny weather had festival-goers feeling extra adventurous. Though we're sure the metallic platforms, crop tops, and booty shorts would've been on display either way. i-D hit the fields of the Empire Polo Club to capture all the best looks on film.
