We’re only 2 weeks away from this year’s Coachella Music Festival, where nearly 200,000 festival go-ers will transform into music hungry desert dwellers under the blazing California sun. Be prepared with our Coachella survival kit because partying in the desert is no joke:

  • A hat that covers your shoulders
  • Your carefully selected lineup schedule
  • A refillable water bottle
  • Cash to refuel on cool watermelon and coconut water
  • A smartphone + Coachella app
  • Your BFFs to get the party started
  • Flash Tattoos Desert Dweller Collection
  • Sunglasses
  • Comfortable ankle boots (if anyone has ever jumped on your toes during a song, you’ll know why)
  • Pura Vida Bracelets Desert Dunes Style Pack – a must!

The Takeaway: What We Can Learn from Music Festivals

March 11, 2015 — by Griffin Thall

Who doesn’t love a good party? And when you throw in some of the world’s best DJs, locations and thousands of amped up festival go-ers, you’ve got a recipe for fun. Here’s what we can learn from music festivals:

Keep an open mind. You may go into a festival with the goal of seeing musicians and DJs you’ve loved forever, but always leave room to explore new music and genres. Just like in life, open up to the possibilities for new and different experiences. You never know what you might like and the interesting people you may meet encounter!

Dance like no one’s watching. It sounds so cliche, but letting go of the fear of being judged on how you express yourself is a very liberating experience. So dance however you want to dance as much as you can!

Enjoy the music and live free. Listening to music is scientifically proven to elevate our moods and decrease stress. It reminds us to be present and really “tune in” to the moment whether we’re by ourselves or with 10,000 or our closest party friends.

It’s all about good vibes and great people. Sometimes music festivals get a bad reputation, but it’s actually the opposite. Everyone you meet is there to have a good time, be happy and have fun. And isn’t this how we should wake up feeling every day? Whether we’re at Coachella or getting out of bed on a Monday morning, we should be excited to be living and look forward to every day.
