    Six years ago, the organizers of the Coachella Music and Arts Festival bet that an enormous two-day European-style concert that bills alternative-rock heroes alongside buzz-worthy new bands and fashionable electronic artists would do the trick. Since then, nearly 50,000 music fans from all over the world have faithfully made the annual pilgrimage to a polo field in Indio (Riverside County) to witness once-in-a-lifetime performances by the likes of Radiohead, the Stooges and Pixies, as well as a slew of lesser-known acts that are just as feverishly worshiped.

Mostly it hits the mark, give or take the odd pointless backstage interview or lingering clip of an inscrutable on-site art installation.
