Coachella Conclusions

For the uninitiated, Coachella exists in our minds as the site of the conspicuous ferris wheel Instagram, hippie chic reincarnated (think flower crowns, fringe, crop tops and crochet), oh and some pretty awesome performers.  This year, I decided to see what all the fuss was about.  So, here's a few conclusions from spending four nights in the desert:

1. I never want to see another flower crown again.
2. I cannot eat McDonald’s for at least a few months but McGriddle and Oreo McFlurry, thank you for being there when I needed you most.
3. Drone delivery…can this be a thing, please?  Just imagine you’re on hour five of I-5, and all of a sudden there goes In ‘n Out delivered through your sun roof.  The future, people!
4. No, you weren't hallucinating when you saw the astronaut at the back of Dillon Francis' set.  It was mobile.

5. A mid-festival trip to the spa truly makes camping palatable.  But really, a serious thank you is in order to Uber and the Miramonte Resort& Spa for the Saturday morning steam room, Jacuzzi, massage and shower.  It’s no surprise Saturday was my favorite day by far.  Here's correlation and causation at its finest.
6. Yo EDM-lovers and Sahara tent enthusiasts, I’m really happy for you, imma let you finish, but Pharell and RL Grime had two of the best sets of all time.
7. Write the location of your campsite on your hand in Sharpie so that you don't spend two hours at the end of a 8+ hour day hopelessly wandering around looking for your spot.  Or buy a Mophie so that your phone doesn't die.
8. There's really nothing quite like when the sun sets over the Main Stage and the installation art is in its full glory.
9. No matter how much Airborne you take, you will get sick.  Allot a day of bed rest upon return.
