Now let’s see what Jee has to say about her experience.
It was an amazing experience!!!! It was very exhilarating to be in the crowds with music lovers. It was a dream come true to see Guns N’ Roses because they are a timeless band. The atmosphere was really lively and fun. Even though my feet were killing me at the end of each day, it was all worth it. The VIP pass was really helpful because there were no lines for restrooms, water stations or food vendors. Also, it was easy to get in and out of the festival through the VIP area. I really enjoyed resting at the tents because of the nice cushions and the availability of outlets. There were so many beautiful, well-dressed people. It gave me an idea of what the trends for summer would be. The resort and the shuttle made the experience comfortable. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. I will cherish this past weekend forever.
It was the whole experience, but if I had to be specific, it would be the second day. The lineup was absolutely amazing, with performers like CHVRCHES, Disclosure, Ice Cube and Gun N’ Roses. Those five hours were the most memorable for me. The artists gave very good performances and got the crowd going.
Who was your favorite band?
I would say Disclosure because Sam Smith and Lorde were the guests. It was a very good surprise that made the crowd excited, and everyone was just dancing. The stages were very pretty with the lights and the screens.
The top 3 festival trends this year were crochet everything (dresses, crop tops, shorts), circle-frame sunglasses and space buns.
Oh my goodness, I never, ever expected to see so many celebrities. I saw Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, Kylie Jenner, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wiz Khalifa, Taylor Swift, Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman, Joe Jonas, The Weeknd, Bella Hadid, Sylvester Stallone, Tyler the Creator, Cindy Crawford and her daughter Kaia, and more.
Now that you just got back, do you have any tips for people going to Coachella?
It is very important to drink water because there were so many people passing out—I kept seeing security going back and forth to carry people out. Wear your most comfortable shoes. Don’t sacrifice comfort for fashion because at the end of the night your feet will be killing you, and you won’t be able to enjoy the performances. Cell phone service is not dependable, especially during prime times, so make sure to set up a meeting spot with your friends in case you lose each other. Also, bring cleansing wipes to wipe off all the dirt, and bring a bandana to cover your face during sand storms. The most important thing is to just have fun because those three days will fly by fast!
