While I was looking forward to the festival once again (Spicy pies…mmm), I couldn’t stop thinking about the unpredictable weather in Indio. Last year for the first weekend, Jesse and I were unprepared to say the least. We didn’t bring a small blanket, a backpack, a sweater, or a Camelbak to hydrate (H2O is $2). The wind picked up Saturday night; so needless to say, the lines at the gift shop were full of people trying to get sweaters (including us ☹).
This year we went a bit more prepared with a thin blanket, sweaters, a backpack (to sneak “Water” into the main terrace…lol), and Jesse’s Camelbak. We decided to leave the blanket back at the hotel because the rules stated “No Blankets” even though we seen plenty at the festival.
Jesse and I decided to check in on Thursday so we wouldn’t be rushing Friday morning. Fruttare hooked us up with some Coachella VIP passes. Along with all the great artists that played, there was plenty of art that caught my eye like the giant robot that I Instagrammed, and the lethargic-moving spaceman. My favorite was the Cryo-chrome (spinning room). The line didn’t stop all weekend just like at the Fruttare tent. Whoever missed the tent, missed out on their amazing coconut bars. Delish!
The performances were awesome. The DJ’s really had the crowds jumping all weekend. My favorite performances were Outkast, Lorde, and Ellie Goulding. And yes I missed several performances like: Nas, Jay-Z, Beyonce & and Pharell…ughh!
Overall, the Coachella was unforgettable. The food, music, and venue did not disappoint. I am looking forward to next year already. I wish they had the lineups prior to buying tickets though. Thanks again for checking out my blog. Make sure to comment down below.
