Even though Coachella's line-up this year is one of the best in existence, we still didn't want to go. We'd rather spring for festivals that are more of a music hub than a runway show. But now it's certain, you'll never catch us there. Not until the owner steps down.

According to Uproxx and Afropunk, festival owner Philip Anshutz (who owns sports and entertainment company AEG) has been tied to a right-wing organization and may have even gone as far as using the festival to fund strategies for climate change denial, as well as anti-LGBTQ groups.

Data from the Washington Post has gone as far as revealing that Anshultz has delivered hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of his company proceeds to groups that include the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Family Research Council, and the National Christian Foundation.

"Phil Anschutz's extensive influence in Colorado politics has been known for years, but the degree of his support for anti-LGBTQ groups that fund extremist hate groups like Gordon Kligenschmitt's 'Pray in Jesus Name' is shocking,” ProgressNow Colorado director Ian Silverii said. "At a time in American history when discrimination and violence against LGBTQ citizens is on the rise, support for pro-discrimination groups puts Anschutz on the wrong side of Colorado, and on the wrong side of history."
