What to Bring 

Here are a few of our festival must-haves – all of which adhere to Coachella’s rulebook.  

  • Backpacks are allowed at Coachella. They don’t have to be clear, but they can’t be larger than 18″ x 13″ x 8.5”.
  • Make sure your phone is fully charged and consider investing in a reliable portable power bank. 
  • Metal water bottles and liquids are not allowed when entering the festival grounds, so bring a good re-usable plastic bottle to fill up inside at various water stations. Stay hydrated!  
  • Once the sun goes down in the desert, it can get chilly, so bring layers.  
  • Large picnic blankets are not allowed, but you can bring smaller towels when you need to sit & rest your dancing feet. We recommend towels that are lightweight and absorbent.  
  • Wear sunscreen and bring a hat if you plan on attending the festival during the day. Please note aerosol cans of sunscreen are not allowed.  
  • Consider purchasing quality earplugs to protect your ears from the long-term effects of the fantastic but loud tunes at Coachella.

Coachella 2024 Food, Drink, & Experiences 

Musical performances and art installations aren’t the only things worth looking forward to at Coachella. 

Top restaurants and chefs from LA and around the country will keep festival-goers fed and fueled with several pop-up eateries. Gluten free and vegetarian options will be available.  

There will also be plenty of exciting drink options for Coachella’s 21+ guests. Multiple bars and speakeasies can be found throughout the festival grounds, including Cocktails & Dreams and the Craft Beer Barn as well as a spirit-free bottle shop. 

Outstanding in the Field dinners are also returning this year, delivering sit-down, multi-course, family-style meal experiences from award-winning chefs in Coachella’s VIP Rose Garden.  


Coachella offers shuttle passes for $140 +fees, but these can sell out in advance, so if you want to use the shuttle make sure to purchase passes as soon as possible. The shuttles depart regularly from local hotels and other “park and ride” locations. 


Parking at Coachella is free, but we recommend carpooling. Day parking is first come/first serve. Once lots are full, you will be directed to a nearby, off-site location.
