We are excited to begin the 2014 Coachella season and as always, your epic artistic visions will be a huge part of the show. We are looking for installation ideas that have one or any combination of the following elements: immersive environments, large scale sculpture, fire, water/misting components, interactive, large scale architectural shade structures, projection mapping and video projects, performance art, etc....all with killer night time lighting. The deadline for submissions will be midnight mountain time on September 15, 2013. We will make our final selections for the show by November 1. Coachella takes place on acres of unobstructed flat grass so there are no real limits...we have had installations and shade structures as large as an acre and sculptures as tall as 125 ft. We are not looking for 2D art (paintings or photographs) or other work on a human scale that can easily get lost in a crowd. Normally the installations selected are head and shoulders above the crowd and visible day and night from hundreds of feet away. It's better if they are not climbable. Please do a google image search for "Coachella art" to see examples of past installations or email me at if you have any question as to whether or not your work might be appropriate for the show. We are looking mostly for new ideas to commission for 2014 but I am interested in knowing what you have available off the shelf, regardless of where it has shown in the past. Any art selected will be shown at both Coachella weekends April 11-13 and April 18-20, 2014. You or qualified members of your crew must be on site at all times doors are open. We will continue to require engineering stamps for some of our installations to insure they withstand the local wind ratings in Indio, Ca. and are safe in any conditions for our large crowds. Please design with this in mind. This need will be determined on a case by case basis. Please remember if you think you may require an engineering stamp you need to budget for this expense as well. Any information is extremely helpful in determining a good fit for the show but please include at least the following if possible: 1. the name and a detailed description of the installation 2. any reference photos, drawings, models or video reference 3. dimensions of each piece (please do not include any buffer space you think may be necessary) 4. a detailed lighting plan 5. fire installation? type and quantity of fuel used 6. finish materials 7. cost* of fabrication, delivery, setup and expenses *Cost is "all in" including your travel for both weekends. We will supply any heavy equipment needed for installation, generators, fuel, any safety fencing or barricade required, a place to camp with hot showers and an agreed upon amount of crew wristbands for both weekends. All proposals are due by Sunday night September 15, 2013 at midnight mountain time but please send them in as soon as they are ready. Feel free to contact me with any questions via email at
