So, you're super-excited about going to Coachella. If you're anything like me, you're very late to the party, and you are heading out to Indio Valley for the first time. You're so excited, you think you're all prepared, and then you find out there are day parties off the festival campus. What?
The Hilton Palm Springs Hotel comes to life every day of the festival proper, Friday through Sunday both weekends, April 14-16 and April 21-23, and it sounds like these day parties are rather dope. Programming for 2017 includes a hefty lineup of diverse talent.
Weekend 1 is the domain of Nicky Romero Friday, followed by an OWSLA pool party takeover (yes, Skrillex will be there), capped by beats from SOUND Nightclub. Weekend 2 brings a Mad Decent opener, Madeon on Saturday, and Dillon Francis with all kinds of bass and funk closing out the whole wild ride. These are just the headliners, too. There are more artists to be announced.
You must be 21 or older to attend. Sponsors include Keineken, Milagro Tequila, Whispering Angel Rose, Dole, and Hyrda Genius (hence the 21+ rule). Tickets are available in single day and weekend pass options. Check below for full details.
