The second weekend of April is officially here and that could only mean one thing.... Coachella

Now in its 20th year, the desert festival brings together the most in-demand artists, the who's who of Hollywood and approximately 250,000 more music fans for six total days of fun in the sun. This year's gathering is already shaping up to be historic, with headliners Ariana GrandeChildish Gambino and Tame Impala poised to rock out. Plus, Kanye West will bring his spiritually-inclined entourage for an Easter "Sunday Service" performance on April 21. 

So if you've ever been lucky enough to snag a Coachella wristband within seconds of them selling out, or have mustered the strength to not only brave the crowds but also Indio's temperatures, you'll understand why it's become a unique tradition for so many. 

As we gear up for the festivities, check out 10 of Coachella's most memorable moments of all time below:
