Some Tips and Tricks:

Coachella Tips & Tricks:

  1. Water, Agua, H20!
    Many Coachella rookies are so excited for their first weekend of Coachella that they forget to drink water! This can be particularly dangerous when mixing dancing, drugs and sun. A good rule of thumb is to drink at least 1 water bottle every 2 hours.
  2. Wear Sun block
    The sunshine and warm weather is what makes Coachella so much fun. But too many of my friends had a good day 1 turn into an awful day 2 and 3 because of a bad sunburn. Lesson learned: lather up! Waterproof SPF 50 is recommended.
  3. Comfortable shoes and clothes
    Many people forget this simple fact: you will be on your feet for at least 13 hours a day during the Coachella weekend. Trendy and fashionable shoes may seem like a cool idea for the first hour or so, but by the time it’s midnight you will wish you had worn something more practical. Also, many people tend to forgot that deserts get very cold at night. Always bring something warm for the night time. You will thank me for this one!
  4. Take a photo of your contact information
    If you plan on bringing a digital camera, make sure to snap a pic of your name and phone number. If someone finds your camera and peers through your photos, they’ll know who to contact. Most everyone at Coachella seems to be one of the few places were 100% of the people are nice. Over the years at Coachella, I’ve lost my debit card, cell phone, ID and car keys. All items were returned to the lost and found!
  5. Buy merchandise on the first day
    The Coachella merchandise tent turns into a zoo everynight as all the fetival goers are heading for the exits. I’ve personally waited in a merch line for 30 minutes only to learn that the shirt I wanted was sold out. The trick here is to buy your merch at the beginning of the first day.
  1. Have a physical meeting spot with for you and your friends
    “The ferris wheel ticket booth”, “back left corner of the Mojave tent” and the “entrance to the Heineken beer garden” are all examples of unique physical spots that you can meet your friends should you get separated. See tip #7
  2. Text affirmative statements
    Cell phone reception at Coachella is spotty at best because rural Indio’s cell tower infrastructure was not designed to handle 85,000 cell phones in such a small area. So never text “where are you?” to a friend because it could be hours before they receive it. And when you get a response, your plans could have changed. Instead, text an affirmative statement like “meet at the merch tent at 8:00pm”
  3. Bring a small flashlight
    Not only is this an essential item for Coachella campers, but a small flashlight is very useful for the festival as well. Coachella veterans know that it is easy to lose your group of friends while walking through the crowds at night. If you have a flashlight (preferably one with a blinker) the leader of your group can hold it up while walking through the crowds so that the rest of the group won’t lose site of him/her.
  4. Beware the beer garden
    Drinking lot’s of alcohol and 100 degree weather don’t mix well. Save the boozin’ until the sun goes down. Plus, the $8 beers don’t feel too good on the wallet.
  5. Bring a positive attitude
    Everyone comes to Coachella to see their favorite bands and to have a good time. Accordingly, everyone is in a great mood (probably the best mood they’ll be in all year). Don’t bring eggy vibes and ruin other peoples good times. Think about the other festival goers and don’t be selfish. Don’t block other people’s view of the stage with a sign or your girlfriend on your shoulders. Don’t push and shove to make your way to the front of the stage. If you want to be up close for your favorite band, get their early!
  1. Bring Earplugs – The music is LOUD! Especially if you’re in the front row of the mainstage.  I never understood why people stand directly in front of the speakers in the Sahara without ear protection.  After All, that ringing in your ear after the festival ispermanent hearing damage.If you want to be able to enjoy the music 30 years from now, you MUST wear ear protection at Coachella (and all other concerts).  I recommend theHearos High Fidelity Musician’s ear plugs because they’re cheap and effective.  And they come with a free case.  These earplugs won’t muffle the music, but instead, bring it down to a reasonable and safe decibel level.
  2. Bring porta-pottie necessities – The Coachella porta-potties are notoriously dirty and smelly.  Stepping into a small human waste box that has been baking in 100°+ heat all day is quite an experience.  If you’re camping, be sure to bring extra seat covers (grab some from a local fast food restaurant on your way out to the festival), toilet paper, baby wipes and hand sanitizer.
  3. Be prepared for allergic reactions  – Bring your anti-allergy medicine because the dry dust and grass on the festival grounds irritates most people’s eyes and throat.
  4. Save your cell phone battery – It’s very annoying to lose your group of friends only to discover your cell phone is dead.  There are no charging stations in the festival grounds (but there are some at the campgrounds).  So, turn off your wi-fi, bluetooth, data and close all of your iPhone background apps.  You don’t need any of these battery draining features while you’re at the festival.  Enjoy the music, don’t sit around taking instagrams of the ferris wheel all day.
  5. Put medication in original bottle – Unless you want your birth control pill to be mistaken for an ecstasy biscuit and to be confiscated by security, be sure to keep your meds in the prescription bottle.  Even worse still, you’re detained by the police for trying to smuggle drugs into the festival.
  6. Condoms & breath mints
  7. Leave for the festival early every morning – If you’re staying at a hotel or condominium, as oppose to camping, make sure to leave for the festival very early.  Traffic can get very congested around the Polo Fields.  I stayed at La Quinta Resort my first year (just a few miles away) and it took me almost 2 hours to get to the Festival.
  1. Rent a locker – Non-campers should consider renting a locker (use this site to book a locker).  It’s a good idea to keep a warm sweater, or even jeans, in your locker so that you can be prepared for the cold desert nights.  The locker is also a great place to store any beers that you might have snuck into the festival grounds.
  2. Remember it takes time to get from stage to stage – If there’s a band you really want to see, make sure you leave early to get there.  It can take a good 30 minutes to walk between the Sahara tent and the mainstage when it’s crowded.
  3. Don’t buy or sell drugs from/to strangers –  There are lots of undercover cops at Coachella looking to buy drugs from friendly festival goers.  Don’t let your weekend be ruined by spending a night in the Indio police station.  Besides, drugs are bad (see the Naked Wizard video below).  If you do find yourself in trouble with the law at Coachella, be sure to contact Forest Wilkerson, a La Quinta-based defense attorney who has experience in dealing with Coachella-related incidents.  Her office can be reached (available night and weekends) at 760-777-4322.  Save this number to your phone’s contacts now!
  4. Print out the setlist (bonus tip!) – Festival staff do hand out set time pamphlets, but don’t spend time looking for one.  Print out the set times before you arrive and highlight the artists you want to see.  Making a plan is the best way to maximize your time

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.  A MESSAGE FROM ROLLINGTUFF.COM:

**For reasons beyond our control, our Party at the Legacy Villa Pools will be canceled.**

The real reason is because the Legacy Villas Freaked out after they saw how many people were attending and made the event no longer open to the public. Renters, homeowners and guests of homeowners only. We would apologize to all of our fans for trying to make it out but it’s not our fault and you should all get an apology from the Legacy Villas.

We could have still thrown the party but we don’t like people telling us how to throw our own parties, we throw our parties the way we want to. So we unfortunately would rather pull out than throw a half ass party where its not open to the public. Sorry to all of the guest who we were excited to party along with us but ROLLINGTUFF doesn’t throw half ass parties.

yours truly,

the crew from ROLLINGTUFF
