The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is 2013’s first big tribal gathering for music fans in the United States. More than 50 bands will be playing for two consecutive weekends on April 12th to the 14th and 19th to the 21st at The Empire Polo Grounds in beautiful Indio, California.
Most people are satisfied by going to the festival with general admission tickets. That’s not for me. I always buy all-access VIP passes from VIP Concierge. Why? Because, for me, VIP passes completely enrich the experience in many ways, mostly due to the additional creature comforts and perks that are available to VIP pass holders. With all-access passes, you get to hang out in two separate private areas. One is adjacent to the main stage. The other is in the Rose Garden, beside the Sahara Tent. Here’s a list of five benefits you get with VIP passes to Coachella from VIP Concierge.
Five Benefits of VIP Passes To Coachella
- Each of the private areas comes equipped with a full cash bar. You can kick back under a big, shady umbrella and have a “Sex on the Beach” while you listen to the tunes. When you finish your drink, all you have to do is say, “Same again.”
- The private areas have more restrooms. This is definitely a case where less is not more. Festivals attract people, and people need restrooms—the more, the merrier.
- To maintain your strength, you need fuel. The restricted areas have extra food and beverage vendors, so that you can stay well-fed and hydrated.
- Both private zones have picnic tables and couches where you can relax and just enjoy the party atmosphere. You’ll meet other people who have VIP passes. You’ll probably get to meet some of the musicians too.
- You can watch the show from the side VIP area, so you get a completely unique vantage point. You notice different things when you can see the band from the side. You can also watch the crowd. There’s nothing like people-watching at a California music festival.
I always buy my VIP passes to Coachella well in advance. Now that I’m used to the next level of service, I want to remain a VIP.
Don’t get me wrong. I used to really love going to the festivals and getting sunburned and muddy and waiting in line to use the restroom (OK, I’m kidding about that one). A little shade quickly takes the edge off a sweltering day. Having VIP passes makes the festival seem less like a Boy Scout jamboree and more like a happening event.
I’m looking forward to seeing a bunch of bands this year that I have heard of but have never seen in concert. Of course, I can’t wait for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but after they play, then the show’s over. I always hate it when Coachella ends, but at least I know there will be another one next year, and I’ll get my all-access passes from VIP Concierge.
