There is no other festival on this earth that is as popular, as well-known, or as prestigious as Coachella. It’s pretty much a prerequisite to be a fan of pop music or a fan of the movie industry if you want to get into the ‘spirit of Coachella’. Every year around this time millions of fans flock to the streets of Indio, California to attend one of the greatest music festivals in the world. 

The magic of Coachella is, other than just the music, that it is an opportunity to be around people you love, meet new people and make lifelong friends. The festival takes place over the course of a week and there are a variety of activities going on all the time. There are parties to attend, music to enjoy and art exhibitions to see. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to spread the word and get some tickets so you can have the best possible experience.

Purchase A Second Hand Ticket

The first and most obvious thing you can do to get the most from your Coachella experience is to buy a second hand ticket. This will save you both time and money, as well as give you a better chance at getting a good spot. There are a variety of websites that allow you to search for concert tickets by date and location, as well as to browse tickets by band. Some of the websites take privacy concerns into consideration and are fully compliant with the rules set forth by the FTC, so make sure you’re purchasing from a legitimate source. 

Make Sure You Practice Good Health

It’s also important to make sure you’re physically prepared for the big day. Make sure you’re eating healthy and getting plenty of rest. You’ll be more than happy you did, as you’ll be able to enjoy the concert and the overall Coachella experience without having to worry about being sidelined by a cold or the flu.

The year 2018 will mark the 100th anniversary of Coachella and to celebrate they have some amazing lineup this year. Taking a cue from Black women who fought for suffrage and other iconic black female trailblazers who broke barriers to achieve success, the festival has decided to devote an entire day to celebrating the life and legacy of Muse, Bob Marley and the extraordinary women who inspired them.

Take Advantage Of The Different VIP Experiences Available

One of the most iconic and luxurious aspects of Coachella is the VIP experience. You and your guest will have access to exclusive concerts, parties, specialty food and beverage options, prime seating areas and more. If you’d like to make the most of your VIP experience make sure you contact the festival’s VIP Coordinator (via email) well in advance of the event.

Have In Mind Different Sensitive Situations

Certain situations, events or places can make you more prone to getting sick. It’s important to have in mind that you might be more susceptible to certain diseases or maladies if you’re not careful. If you happen to be pregnant or living with someone who is, you should discuss potential exposure to the coronavirus with your personal physician. 

Travel To And Through India

The country of India has been at the forefront of pandemic awareness since the earliest days of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, many countries have restricted or banned travel to and through India in an effort to keep people apart and prevent the spread of the virus. 

However, as an American citizen you have the right to travel wherever you want and the right to return to your home. If you’re considering traveling to India during this time you should consult the State Department about any mandatory quarantines, restrictions or advisories that might be in place.

Research Local History

There is a wealth of local history to be discovered in every town and city. Make sure you go exploring! Many museums and historic sites are open to the public, however, there might be times when they are closed or have shortened their hours. If you want to attend a specific event or exhibition make sure you plan your trip around it.

Check The Local Health Guidelines

The best way to avoid becoming ill is to avoid getting infected with the novel coronavirus in the first place. Make sure you are practicing good hygiene and staying up to date on vaccinations. Avoid touching your face, the nose and the mouth. Practice social distancing and avoid gatherings of more than four people.

Practice Safety

Like most things in life, being safe at Coachella is all about being smart. Make sure you follow the guidelines put forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. You should also be aware of how HIV is transmitted and keep an eye out for potential exposures. If you do end up contracting the virus you will need to follow the guidelines for effective treatment.

Coachella continues to evolve and adapt as a result of the pandemic. They have moved some of their well-known outdoor concerts to indoor spaces and have also changed the layout and the time of day some events are hosted. To stay abreast of all the changes visit the festival’s website or follow them on social media.
