Asia is a secret playground for musicians. Music festivals are rampant in the summer months, and huge international acts share the stage with obscure but equally good local artists. The best part about music festivals in this part of the world is that they have yet to develop a mainstream following like that of Glastonbury or Coachella, making tickets accessible and affordable.

All other music festivals, eat your heart out. With two weekends of musical goodness filled with interesting fashion, weird people, lots of unmentionable substances and insane parties, Coachella will always have a place in our heart. It's also one of the most visually stimulating festivals on the circuit. The natural beauty of the Palm Springs desert makes for the best backdrop to thousands of festival goers doing their thing. Take a look at our take on the beloved festival, and check out the rest of Neel Patel's rad pics on his experience here.
With the first weekend of Coachella in the books already, it might be understandable to think that the music community was going into a four-day hibernation to gear up for Friday. However, Goldenvoice is instead seizing the opportunity of having so many big-name bands sticking around for the week and throwing incredible shows all over the greater L.A. area, including possibly the greatest week of shows Pomona has ever seen.

Some good news for those of you unable to partake in either of the two back-to-back Coachella weekends next month. As of Monday, the festival's producer Goldenvoice unveiled a fully-loaded schedule of shows in the L.A. area in the days surrounding the desert music festival. They've deemed the two-week live music extravaganza "Goldenvoice Presents April 2012." Whether you're getting in on Coachella action next month or have opted out this year, if you're into this year's lineup at all, you're probably going to want to take a look at the artists they've scheduled to perform in these supplemental shows since most of them are playing the festival this year.
