Stay in Relaxing Palm Springs for Coachella
Each year at the world-renowned music festival Coachella (April 13-15 and 20-22, 2018), legendary artists and fan favorites croon away in the desert of Indio, CA, to euphoric crowds. Practically a boho fashion show in its own right, the festival is also a whirlwind of memory-making, Instagramming and celebrity spotting. Last year, Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead were in the lineup; Beyoncé postponed her appearance to the upcoming 2018 event.
Tips for Attending:
- The official website houses a whole collection of detailed guides, covering ticket purchases, dining, driving directions and much more. For a festival of this magnitude, advance reading and prep are essential.
- Be sure to set meet-up points with friends; cell reception is notoriously unreliable.
- Make use of the festival app to flag your must-see shows and receive notifications when your favorites are about to hit the stage.
- Dress in layers—desert temperatures drop at night, catching many off-guard.
Drinking and Dining
For a real treat after the food trucks, granola bars and long lines, end the day at Four Saints, where shareable plates, handcrafted cocktails and breathtaking views provide an intimate dining experience.
