The show has evolved in surprising ways since it began as a desert setting for the best alternative rock, hip-hop, and EDM of the moment. No single timeline could contain its full story, but some moments have been especially meaningful, and co-founder and president of promoter Goldenvoice Productions Paul Tollett helps weigh in on how the festival evolved.
