The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival starts Friday, and that means hundreds of thousands of smartphone users will descend on Indio.

After a three-hour survey of Coachella 2013, the changes on the grounds are many, chief among them a new feeling of permanence. The festival, now in its 14th year, is visibly changed and is showing signs of its new extended commitment to the Indio location: There's a new (sixth) stage, a more festive grand entryway and a better organized food and merchandising area. The dance tents have phenomenal surround sound and a massive light system that in the dark will surely trip out many of the ultra-excited dance kids already sweaty at 3 p.m. COACHELLA 2013: What to see and do  |  Timeline  |  Full coverage Security has certainly changed, at least in my experience.
