Located in the California desert, in the Coachella Valley near the base of Mt. San Jacinto, Palm Springs is a resort community of about 48,000 people, popular for its golfing, tennis and other outdoor activities. Despite its relatively small size, its resort-area status encourages a vibrant music scene and nightlife to entertain vacationers. Besides being home to numerous live music venues and recording studios which accommodate the local scene, two major music festivals–Stagecoach Country Music Festival and Coachella Music and Arts Festival–are held just outside of Palm Springs each year, attracting many thousands of music fans to the area. Coachella alone is one of the nation’s most predominant festivals, featuring bands from a wide range of genres.

The frequent musical activity in the Palm Springs makes it a great spot to learn audio engineering, music production, recording or live audio–and the RECORDING CONNECTION can get you in the heart of the action.
