List will be updated as events are announced. Stay tuned!
Coachella is one of the the most popular and hyped music festival in the world, bringing music lovers, celebrities, scenesters, and artists from all corners for two weekends of good vibes in the sweltering desert. In addition to the concerts, Coachella also brings a gang of parties and events to Indio, as brands try to up their cool factor by associating themselves with one of the most popular cultural events in the world. Some people only head to Coachella for the parties and not even the festival itself. Everyone knows who’s playing (and if you don’t why are you even going?). so here’s some of the happenings during Coachella 2015 weekend(s).
Culture Collide: Not A Pool Party (4/9)
Culture Collide and a few cool brands: GoPro, Lagunitas, and Bandsintown, present a non-pool party (California only has a year’s supply of water left!) at the Hard Rock Hotel to kick off the Coachella festivities. RSVP here.
Neon Carnival (4/11)
Paper and Pacsun team up with Bolthouse productions to present probably the best party outside of Coachella, Neon Carnival. Expect carnival rides, games, and the scenesters of Hollywood to be in attendance. Neon Carnival will also have prolific party DJs on deck in addition to Don Julio tequlia infused drinks. I remember I got a call directly from Brent Bolthouse one year asking my to change a typo in a post I wrote about Neon Carnival. A man of detail. Anyways, no real RSVP details, just come early and try to work the door.
Pandora Indio Invasion Unleashed by T-Mobile (4/11)
Pandora and T-Mobile invite you to the ultimate spot to cool off before heading over to the Festival grounds. Relax by the pool, enjoy a hosted bar, hors d’oeuvres, and get your body moving with DJ sets by Questlove & SOSUPERSAM. RSVP here.
Lacoste #LiveBeautifully Desert Pool Party (4/11)
Lacsote throws probably one of the better events during Coachella weekend with their annual pool party. Expect a lot of inflatable alligators, refreshments, good looking folks hanging around the pool, and overall good vibes. RSVP here.
Vestal Village (Weekend 1)
Watchmaker Vestal is hosting a private event somewhere in Indio, as details are secret and you need a special code to RSVP to the event. Base on last year’s event, it should be a chill time. Maybe, if you buy a watch, you’ll gain access? They’re actually pretty sleek and affordable.
Refinery 29 x A-OK Collective: Paradiso 2015 (4/11 & 4/12)
Online fashion source Refinery 29 and creative agency A-OK Collective are hosting a weekend of style of fashion and dreams at the Saguaro Hotel during the first weekend of Coachella. RSVP here.
Desert Gold @ the Ace Hotel (Both Weekends)
It’s the 7th anniversary of Desert Gold and they’re celebrating with festivities spanning both Coachella weekends at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. More details here.
Annie Mac Presents Pool Party (4/18)
DJ and BBC 1 Host Annie Mac presents a pool party with some of her famous friends at the Hacienda Hotel. Pretty solid lineup with Duke Dumont, Jamie XX, and Kaytranada. Tickets are sold here.
The Do Over Desert Sundays (4/12 & 4/19)
The Do-Over, adidas Originals and Serato team up for for two massively glorious Coachella weekends. Celebrating it’s fifth annual stand at the Commune of Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs, The Do-Over is sure to be your best time on Sunday, or any other day. RSVP here.
LED Day Club (Both Weekends)
San Diego based event/ entertainment group MyLifeEveryday and Goldenvoice (Coachella’s producers) presents a pool party series at the Hilton Palm Springs featuring a very impressive lineup of DJs (Odesza, Flosstradamus, Skrillex & Friends days should be awesome). Events take place both weekends and is a great option to beat the heat. More details and tickets can be found here.
