What should I bring to Coachella?

Heading to the desert and wondering what to bring? As Coachella veterans, we’ve compiled a list of items to bring over the years. In general we recommend you travel light and try to be as comfortable as possible – this will ensure that you have the best Coachella experience.

Essential items to bring to Coachella:

  • ID + Wristband and passes (shuttle camping etc) (duh)
  • Sunscreen (spray bottles are not allowed in the venue)
  • Light jacket – it sometimes gets cold at night.
  • Comfortable shoes – never bring news shoes to Coachella! You’re going to be on your feet for up to 8 hours – comfort is paramount!
  • Earplugs – especially needed in Yuma and Sahara tents.
  • Cash / credit cards – Apple / Google pay is also available but it occasionally goes down
  • Water bottle / camel backs – these need to be empty when you go into the festival – no glass or metal bottles

  • USB power bank / battery (for recharging on the go)
  • Blanket (for sitting down)
