It’s that magical time of year when the beautiful people converge on grassy lawns and desert oases to worship at the feet of the music gods. Welcome to festival season. SXSW and WMC have come and gone but Coachella – the mother of all festivals – starts tonight for its two-weekend, 3 day madness. Whether you’re excited to relax & lounge in Palm Springs or you’re anxiously waiting to see your favorite headliners, Coachella style & essentials are almost as important as the festival lineup itself. Take a look through what Blueprint identifies as Coachella must-haves for this weekend & next –
Because the perfect Coachella #selfie is a must to make everyone jealous back here in Raincouver.
It’ll be easy to mix comfort with swag in these Nikes from our friends at Livestock.
A much more Vancouver-inspired way to stay shaded in the Sahara tent.
This one from Kenzo has secret compartments, whatever goods you choose to keep discreet into the polo field grounds is all you.
Because nothing is more Coachella-chic than a floppy hat. With this one, it’ll be different than the hundreds you’ll see on site this weekend.
Blocking out the haters in shades only worthy for Palm Desert.
Because sometimes we’re too lazy to change our look from the pool to the grounds. We’d like to call this swimsuit “two birds, one stone”.
Self-Explanitory – And also happened to be one of the most popular confiscated items at Coachella 2013 last year.
