early to make it to Indio
for the first minutes of the ultimate summer music experience. One festival
pass gets you into the Empire Polo Club for three unforgettable days of music.
Passes for each weekend of the festival are sold separately. However, you’ll
get to see all of the bands that will be performing on the five main stages.
Between shows, enjoy world-class refreshments and organic fare. Food at the
festival is provided by the popular Kogi Food Truck and Coachella pizza veterans
Spicy Pie. There will also be food trucks in the VIP areas and near The Terrace
and Cantina. Coachella is probably the only festival where vegan, vegetarian
and gluten-free food is always available. Plus, there’s an open bar, and free
water is provided to keep the masses hydrated.

The festival is managed by Goldenvoice, a division of AEG, so all aspects of
the festival are well organized. It’s still a good idea to get a festival map,
and create a concert lineup, so you know where you want to be to see your
favorite performers when they hit the stage.

partiers, plan on walking several miles each day. Good, comfortable walking
shoes are a must-have item. For guys, country club-casual apparel is encouraged
along with lots of jeans, T-shirts, and light-colored shorts. For ladies,
shorts, breezy tops and long flowing dresses worn over shorts or bikinis are
popular. It gets chilly once the sun goes down on the desert, so carry extra
layers. At Coachella, everyone wants to listen to good music and stay
comfortable. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen and sunglasses in your Coachella
survival kit. And certainly don’t forget to get your 2013 VIP passes to
Coachella before they’re gone.
