Coachella Parties 2018: Complete list of pool parties and after parties

coachella parties 2018
Coachella parties have gotten bigger and better over the years, and in some cases, are becoming an attraction all of their own. It seems that every year, more and more people are coming to the Palm Springs area during the Coachella weekend simply for the parties, and passing on the festival.

While established parties like Neon Carnival, Revolve Festival, Bootsy Bellows and Jeremy Scott are getting more popular and therefore more difficult to get into, there are tons of brand events and smaller parties to choose from.

What to expect at Coachella Parties?

Most of events are sponsored by a major fashion, beauty or music brand, which means the budgets are big! Almost all of the parties have open bars, free catered food, a pool, a music performance, activation tents, and free giveaways.

At some of the more exclusive parties (Neon, Revolve, Foray) you will be partying with celebrities or some of the artists that are playing at Coachella later in the day.

How to get into parties

Many of the parties are not open to the public, but are invite-only or a RSVP is required. It helps to know someone “in the industry” that is somehow connected with the event. That will be your best bet.

That said, it is possible to get into some of these parties even if you’re not on the list. First you need to know the location, and you’ll need to arrive early. Once the events have hit capacity, the security is very strict about not letting anyone else in.

Second, you need to act the part. Don’t come to the events wearing sandals, a baseball cap, sports jersey etc. Generally, you’ll need to dress the part, which means dressing trendy.

Third, be nice. It’s amazing how far a smile can go. If you’re nice to the event staff and security, and don’t come in a big group, you might have a shot of getting into one of the Coachella 2018 parties.

It is important to note that none of these events are sanctioned, affiliated or organized by Coachella or its producers. These parties are put-on by separate promoters and entities. Buying an entrance to one of these parties does not grant you access to the actual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Is your party not on the list? No worries, contact me to get it added!
