Approximately 99,000 people attended Coachella every day during the California music festival's six-day run last month, the Los Angeles Times reports. When you combine that many people with drugs, sun, and the power of music, you're going to get more than a few lost pairs of sunglasses. Fortunately, according to LAist, festival-organizer Goldenvoice has just opened a massive digital lost-and-found for Coachella-goers on Crowdfind. The collections for the first weekend and second weekend of Coachella contain more than 1,100 lost items. That includes "lost drivers licenses, sunglasses, car keys, backpacks, phones, GoPros, wallets, and other things," the Pasadena Star-News reports. Sadly, our lost youth wasn't in there.
