Coachella is awesome, but you need to make sure you do it right for it to be that way. If you follow these 10 tips on how to do Coachella, then you should be in the clear to have the best weekend of your life.

  1. Book your hotel ahead of time. The Vagabond Inn Palm Springs is only 20 miles from the event and one of the more affordable options, so book those rooms ASAP
  2. Plan out your travel time. Figure out how long it will take to get to the venue so that you don't miss your favorite artist. The Coachella Shuttle Stops at the Hilton Palm Springs which is only a 5-minute Uber ride from the Vagabond Inn.
  3. Make sure you EAT! Have a good meal before you go to the festival. Food is expensive inside the venue and the Vagabond Inn offers a free continental breakfast to all guests. There is also a convenience store where you can buy drinks and snacks.
  4. Know what to NOT wear. Don't wear heels people. You will be walking all day in the heat and your feet will hate you.
  5. Also, know what TO wear. Bring a sweater or something light to throw on when it gets dark because it will cool down.
  6. WATER, WATER, WATER, and don't forget it!
  7. Charge your phone. The nice thing about staying in a hotel vs camping is you can easily make sure your phone or camera is fully charged each day.
  8. Rent a locker once you're there. If you want to bring anything to change into or you just have a lot of stuff that you don't want to carry around all day, renting a locker can save your life.
  9. Use the Coachella App! Yes, Coachella has an app where you can put your schedule together and find out when and where your favorite artist is performing. It also shows you where the lounges are… some of them even have AC.
  10. Make friends, dance your head off, and be respectful. This is a place for you to make incredible memories. Have fun and be smart!
