Coachella 101: Step to Survival

Lace and suede are flying off of the shelves of your favorite clothing stores. Vanessa Hudgens is somewhere picking out body jewels and buying hair extensions. There is a floral/hippy epidemic on your Instagram/Twitter/Tumblr that is particularly obnoxious. Obviously, this can only mean that we are in the midst of Coachella Season. It's happening. Be cool.

For the next 2 weekends, Indio, CA, home to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, will be overrun with music lovers and party-goers from all over the globe. Weekend 1 and Weekend 2 are both identical 3 day festivals, with 12 hours of concerts and events, and after-parties that stretch into the wee hours of the morning.

This year, the musical lineup consists of artists like Drake, The Weeknd, AC/DC, Hozier and Florence and the Machine. If you've managed to score tickets, I know you're probably counting the days. But, whether this is your first year or your 5th year, there are a few steps you should take to make sure you remember this weekend for all of the right reasons.
