Coachella is an iconic annual music festival held in Indio, California across two weekends, every April. Coachella 2019 is set to take place on April 12 – 14 and April 19 – 21. Over the years, attending Coachella has become more than just a music festival with your favorite artists taking the stage. It’s a pilgrimage for tens of thousands of music and fashion lovers across the world. Who’s on the line-up list this year? Childish Gambino, Tame Impala, and Ariana Grande just to name a few! If you are looking forward to a weekend of a nonstop rollercoaster of music, partying, fashion and feasting at Coachella, here’s how to do it right:

  • Watch your favourite artists perform and dance to their music!
  • Indulge in delicious food and don’t forget to try corn dogs and fish tacos.
  • Don’t hold back when it comes to fashion, Coachella is a place to express yourself and wear whatever you want.
  • Cool off with some chilled beer at the Heineken House.
  • Besides music, Coachella is also about performing and visual arts. The festival features multiple Centrepieces that are part of the idyllic dreamland. Feel free to check them out.
  • Ladies can get free beauty makeovers at large H&M and Sephora tents.
  • Watch the mesmerising fireworks on the last day of the festival.

How much are Coachella tickets?

The ticket prices start $429 onwards with a shuttle pass included. VIP admission is $999, and VIP parking is $150.

How to get there?

Book your flight tickets to Palm Springs International which is the closest airport to Indio. Once you land, take the Coachella airport shuttle and head straight to the venue. If you’re staying at one of the hotels near Indio, the shuttles can drop you to the same.

How to Prep for Coachella?

  • Carry a water bottle with you at all times

The dry desert air, the sun, the dancing and alcohol can leave you dehydrated in no time.

  • Wear sunblock

The desert sun is very harsh and can cause severe sunburns.

  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes

There’s going to be a lot of bouncing and dancing, so make sure to wear shoes and clothes that will let you move around comfortably. Also, don’t forget to pack layers as the temperatures can dip drastically at night.

  • Buy merchandise on the first day

This is because the merchandise tents can get extremely crowded at night.

  • Bring earplugs

The music can get really LOUD. Especially if you’re standing near the front row of the mainstage.

  • Leave for the festival early every morning

If you’re staying at a hotel, make sure to leave for the festival very early. Traffic can get very congested during the latter part of the day.

  • Get Traveler’s Insurance 

Travelling overseas is always laden with risks. A missed flight, a sudden illness or injury can destroy your Coachella plans and cause severe financial losses. By taking up a travel insurance policy, you can protect yourself against the financial risks of travel.

Coachella is more than just a music festival, it is a celebration of art, culture and good vibes. Apply for a Bajaj Allianz travel insurance plan online instantly on Finserv MARKETS and enjoy your Coachella trip to the fullest!

Also be aware of the benefits of travel insurance which you will get after applying for it.
