Photos from Weekend 1 of Coachella by Mr Turk

I experienced Coachella from afar, watching my Twitter and Facebook feeds for updates and reading coverage from Pop & Hiss, Soundcheck, and more. As everyone settles back into post-Coachella life, it’s still fun to relive it via photos so here are a few courtesy of KCRW DJ Anne Litt’s Coachella buddy Mr. Turk.

(We’ll have more from photographer Piper Ferguson later this week AND you can check out sets from festival standouts Band of Skulls and Andrew Bird on Morning Becomes Eclectic this week!)
