ALRIGHT EVERYBODY! By now, I know you’ve either seen or heard about Beychella, formerly known as Coachella. I am here to let you in on all the details from beginning to end as well as give you guys some tips to make your experience one to remember.
So first things first, check out the lineup to determine whether the trip and money is going to be worth it. You’re going to want to get as much as you possibly can for the money you’re about to spend.
There are many different packages available so it’s up to you to decide whether you want to camp out, get a hotel, etc. In retrospect, I’d definitely camp out because the combo of California and Coachella traffic is not of this world. Camping vs. traffic. Take your pick.
Once you decide you’re going to go for it, you need to be aware of how many days, hours, and minutes you are away from tickets going on sale because once the flood gates open, every second counts. If I was you, I would open up as many browsers as humanly possible that way when you get this screen below, you’re already 7 browsers deep in this thang.
So once you’ve got your ticket, congratulations are in order and we wait for the most epically packaged box, like so, to come in the mail.
The tickets come with a pamphlet of in-depth details and guidelines ALL THE WAY down to which wrist you should display your wristband on. Super top secret squirrel stuff.
From here you have to download the Coachella app to activate your wristband and ultimately plan your entire experience. This wristband is your golden ticket so definitely make sure you activate it before you actually get out there.
When making your lineup list of artists you want to see it’s important to keep a few things in mind
- Not everybody performs on the same stage
- A lot of these stages are CLEAR ACROSS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FESTIVAL.
- Some artists may perform within 30 mins or an hour of each other
I say that to say, the app will send you a 15 minute notification prior to the performances you want to see and if you think 15 mins is enough time to book it across 18 acres AND get a decent view, you’d be wrong.
Once you actually arrive at the festival, the world is your oyster. It’s definitely a vibe.
There’s people EVERYWHERE! There’s food everywhere. There’s music. It’s just a magical kind of situation.
I do recommend a face mask because the wind can be VERY disrespectful. You can also use it as a multipurpose tool so it’s a win win either way.
That about wraps it up people! Be sure to stay hydrated and wear comfortable clothes. I wish I would’ve taken more videos and pictures but some things are meant to be experienced and just downloaded on your mental hard drive. Sometimes pictures and videos don’t do enough justice as the real deal. I hope this was informational and that you decide to partake in the festivities in the years to come.
Thanks for reading!
