The first weekend is considered the best
Now that Coachella is split into two weekends, the first weekend is the most sought after, though the lineup is identical.
The Sahara Tent is legendary for electronic music performances
Check out the DoLab too.
Camp if you want the full Coachella experience
You’ll need a camping pass in addition to your ticket. If you need a break, nearby hotels are a more relaxing option as most have pools (and some good pool parties).
Don’t miss the art
Interactive large-scale art pieces from Burning Man and beyond dot the polo fields.
Decompress after Coachella
Check out Joshua Tree National Park, a short drive from Indio, and a nice time of year for desert wildflowers.
