The 2024 Shara Tent: more steel, new location, bigger and better
Jason Brown, who is in charge behind the scenes, told everyone that the Sahara Tent is being moved to a new location between Avenue 51 and Polo Road. Imagine that—music resonating in the desert and good vibes bouncing off the walls of a brand-new building.
We are in the process of moving the Sahara tent this year. We’re going into a whole new area of the venue that we’ve never been into.
The new Sahara Tent is a full-on makeover. It’s all about steel, baby! Don’t bother with weak aluminum—this bad boy is made to last. It’s a huge building—320 feet long—and ready to handle anything.
Before starting in December we’ve been putting in these underground footings for a structure that’s 320 ft long in all we poured about 156 trucks worth of concrete equaling 1,500 tons. We had to start each night at 3 in the morning so that we didn’t just completely clog up the city streets of Indio with traffic. The old Sahara was an aluminum structure and we are transitioning into a steel structure. There’s so much more weight capacity that we can do. There’s so much more production elements that we can do so we’re going to be more than ready for an artist like Peggy Goo who who brings whatever she wants to bring to the show – Jason Brown, VP of Artist Production at Goldenvoice, Coachella’s organizer
