Coachella Festival Tips
If you are driving to the festival, start early (possibly before dawn) to avoid traffic congestion on the way to your destination. At the venue also, it takes time to walk from one stage to another. So, leave early to enjoy your favorite artist’s performance.
Keep yourself hydrated
It’s easy to get dehydrated at Coachella as temperatures are very high. And since there’s also a lot of walking, dancing, and crowds at the festival, ensure to drink as much water as you can. Since they offer free water, bring a big, non-metal, and reusable water bottle with you, and whenever required, fill it at a water refill station at the venue.
It’s a must to wear sunblock at the event- the only way to avoid sunburn. So, carry sunscreen with SPF 60 or higher that protects you from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Book a locker
It’s a great idea to reserve a locker at the event to store essential stuff like warm clothes, comfortable shoes, and medications. Renting a locker is convenient and keeps your things safe.
The music is really loud at the festival, and you don’t want to damage your eardrums. So, use earplugs while enjoying your favorite tunes, especially if you are in the front row of a concert or bringing kids along.
Bring a power bank
Imagine you drained all the battery on your phone, only to find long queues at charging stations on the spot! Yes, these lines at charging stations are usually longer than water-filling stations. So, make sure to bring a good USB battery pack with you.
Pack according to the venue
In addition to the stuff mentioned above, you should also pack dust masks, baby wipes, bandaids, a hat, a bandana, a lip balm, small towels, deodorant, sanitizer, and a small flashlight.
Remember, you are not allowed to bring motorcycles, RVs, buses, motor homes, or U-Haul trucks to the event. It’s best to rent a car for Coachella as it helps you reach the venue comfortably and conveniently as well as lets you plan your further schedule/journey as per your preference. If traveling in a bigger group an SUV rental would be the most suitable car, and if traveling in a smaller group or looking for a budget-friendly vehicle an economy car rental is the best.
