Yes, I’m late, but as pre-sale tickets have recently sold out I thought I’d reflect on my first Coachella experience.
First of all Coachella is beautiful, like really, really pretty, almost unreal, and although Palm Springs is a pain to get to its totally worth it. If any of you ragers out there have purchased tickets I highly suggest getting a house like now. Unless you like camping, dusty storms and sleeping on the ground. Plus after a long day of raging who doesn’t want to come home, take a nice shower and settle down with a nice cup of easy mac. Once you’ve secured your house, you’ll need to get started on your outfits. My suggestion is to go with something small and that you don’t mind getting dirty, lets remember you are in the dessert where temperatures regularly go above 100 degrees and in a place where porta potty explosions are not an uncommon occurrence.
Another suggestion: Take at least 2 days off when you get back, if you’re like me and an east coast dweller when you come back you’re body will have a had time not only adjusting to the time difference but the weather as well. The day I flew back to New York from Coachella it was rainy and 30 degrees, needless to say I was not a happy camper. Be prepared to go through serious Coachella withdrawals, symptoms include, stalking social media for information regarding week 2, re-listening to all your favorite sets on SoundCloud and excessive napping.
Godspeed my ragers!
