The first weekend of the two-weekend 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival concluded late last night.  With several thousand more people than ever attending this year's Coachella, traffic jams leaving Indio could be longer than usual, as attendees crowd onto Inland Southern California freeways trying to get home. 

Up to 125,000 people per day crowded onto the Coachella festival grounds this weekend. All of those people were expected to crowd onto area freeways on their way home today.
