(theguardian) Thirty years ago Gary Tovar ran California's largest marijuana operation, smuggling famous varieties such as Acapulco gold and Thai stick into the US and distributing Afghan seeds to growers in California to kickstart the homegrown industry.
A music fan, he took the name of one strain, Goldenvoice, for the name of his concert business which specialised in bringing British punk bands to Southern California – the same company that this weekend will put on America’s answer to Glastonbury on a polo field outside Indio in the Mojave desert.
Tovar, now close to 60, will be at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival as he is every year, enjoying the spectacle from his all-access golfcart. Coachella is the most profitable festival on the US circuit and now wildly popular with the Hollywood set. The LA Times calls it “more than an event, it’s a state of mind” and “the biggest gift to fashion since Kate Middleton.”
