1. Empire Polo Club (Coachella)
City: Indio, Calif.
Address: 81-800 Ave. 51
Complex began in 2002; that same year, Coachella, a music and arts festival located in the California Desert, began to accumulate the buzz that made it what it is now: a trendsetting event so popular that this year they added a second weekend. During the Complex Decade, Coachella has hosted Jay-Z, LCD Soundsystem, M.I.A., Gorillaz, and, most significantly, Kanye West. In 2011, he put on the biggest, most theatrical show the festival has ever scene, playing songs from his entire discography and pulling out all conceivable stops: a modern dance troupe, cranes, lights, and most importantly, 'Ye, front and center. Despite all the set-dressing and stage-swelling extras, this was a one-man show. Raise your hand if you copped the bracelets Kanye wore during his set. We thought so.
