Two weekends of desert debauchery, musical mischief, and raucous revelry await.
CoachellaEmpire Polo Club (Indio, CA, United States) Map it $375
Alright, we’ll admit it: Coachella has upped its game this year and, yes, we’ll concur: It’s a good look. In addition to providing services ranging from “boutique” shopping to a farmers’ market, the festival is catering (quite literally) to foodies with new gourmet culinary concessions. LA hotspot Night + Market is one of the restaurants included in the “Stripped Back”-inspired refined street food selection, while Bäco Mercat, Bar Amá and Orsa & Winston will be representing amongst the VIPs. The festival will also welcome a specialty craft beer area, plus top-notch cocktails curated by the mixologists of various 213 establishments run by LA’s very own Cedd Moses. And, lest we forget to mention music: This year’s line-up is as eclectic as always – and while the naysayers may grumble about bands being passé, the program covers so much ground and spans so many genres even the most stubborn music snobs will delight in at least a few acts on the bill. While both weekends of desert debauchery are pretty much sold out, there’s a chance you may still be able to get in if you can stand to fork over $600 for a special ticket that includes a four-course dinner, courtesy of Outstanding in the Field, or bite the bullet and pull the trigger on a $1,024 VIP pass.
