Candice’s Coachella Survival Guide

a few tips and tricks I learned over the years

The best music festival by far is Coachella and they just announced this years line up. It looks incredible!!!! Arcade Fire headlining Sunday, Muse Saturday, and an Outkast reunion on Friday. Other bands playing include Lorde, Queens, Foster the People, MGMT, Broken Bells, Neko Case, Beck, Neutral Milk Hotel, and the list goes on and on. I have been to Coachella 3 times so here are a few tips and tricks I learned over the years.

What are your music festival tips? Let us know in the comments.

Number 1. And I cannot stress this enough is to SHOWER AT NIGHT. There is hot water and no line ups. If you bring your towel and shampoo to the show and bail right after the last song…you can get in and out in 15 minutes.

Number 2. BRING A FLASHLIGHT AT NIGHT. There are no lights in the Port o Pottys and they get pretty gross at the end of the day.

Number 3. When you need an afternoon nap…find the rose garden. There are no stages nearby and it’s a pretty calming chunk of grass to sleep on. You WILL get tired in the afternoon. The hot Indio sun kicks you outta the tent at 7am and the heat never gives.

Bonus tip. Hit up the fresh farmers market in the morning. You can get a delicious organic iced coffee and some fruit. There are also some killer breakfast burritos available. If you are lucky, someone will start up an impromptu yoga class on the grass. It is the best way to get your festival day going.
