I attended Coachella in Indio, California this weekend with 6 others. We camped out, and it was a first for all of us; a first at Coachella and a first camping out in the dessert. 

The Bad:
  • Drenched in sweat in the day, shivering cold at night; that's what happens when you camp in the desert.
  • Lines, lines, lines. and more lines. for just about everything; food, bathroom, water, entrance...
  • Lost:
    • 2 sunglasses were sacrificed
    • as well as my new camera that the bf got for me... =(
  • 3 hour shower lines, which means, no showers for yours truly. i'm not kidding when i say we were roughing it
  • phone died after 1 day...
The Good:
  • Got to see:  
    • Phoenix, Temper Trap, Passion Pit, MUSE, Jay-Z & Beyonce, MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Little Boots, She & Him, Gorillaz, and Jonsi.
  • Had a backup camera (yay me for over-packing)
  • Above par concession food including fresh coconuts, kettle corn, veggie wraps, and yummy garlic fries
  • Found the best viewing spots on 2nd day, closest to stage with amazing view of band, while still sitting.
  • Once in a life-time experience, probably won't be repeated again in a long time.
  • Came home to a generous gift box of make-up products from Skin Care Rx!
