Sitting on the sofa last Friday night with a bowl of Ramen, you pause mid-slurp…a tremor in the balance? It couldn’t be.
You rush to the window and a girlish gasp liberates itself from your lips; your worst fears are confirmed. Not a trend-setting hipster in sight! Except maybe that homeless guy in a poncho…still not sure about ponchos. Hmmm.
You look to the heavens, fall to your knees, and with a temple-throbbing determination, howl the words,
“MUST GET TO COACHELLAAAAAAA!”
Yes, it’s true. The hipsters have flocked their fashion senses off to the polo grounds at Indio, California for this year’s mother of all music-fests: Coachella. If you’re like us and feeling a major drag in Melrose Ave mojo, then get your “Carpoolchella” together and make for the epicenter of cool. But first, scroll down and take a look at our must-have survival kit for the event and don’t forget to download Antengo’s free app to find these items and more.
COMPLETE COACHELLA SURVIVAL KIT
First time doing Coachella? Last year was a massive fail? No prob. Antengo’s here to hook you up with some essentials to survive the three-day desert madness.
Don’t forget the tickets, bro. DON’T. Your friends WILL abandon you in the car. Okay, now that that’s out of the way, lets move on.
If last years Coachella tent smells like beer, Febreze, and glob knows what, then snag yourself a new home base and stop holding your breath.
It’s the desert. It’s bright, you’re hungover, and these shades conquer both troubles while also giving you pervy x-ray vision. Okay, maybe not. But at least now you can get away with the staring.
It’s a bag. It holds your junk and the junk of seven other people who don’t like to carry bags.
A Coachella weekend without a cooler is like a– ah, screw the analogy – it’s just plain blasphemous. Rest your Coconut waters and other sweet baby beverages in this chill bassinet.
Although your smartphone might make a rad 21st century “lighter” to wave around entrancingly to that perfect indie set list, its not going to make the cut when it comes to quality pictures. Get yourself a decent camera, and show your Facebook friends what they’re missing. It’s a sure way to increasing your JCC (Jealous Comment Count).
Coachella means business. So bring your best suit. Let your free-loving aura hang loose and feel free to call that mist machine experience your shower for the day. Suit up!
Being mistaken for a celebrity incognito is one of the best things that could happen to you in your life, next to actually being someone of value to society. The hat and shades combo will cover up all that yo momma didn’t give you and make people wonder, “hey…is that person attractive and influential?” Yes. Yes, I appear to be.
