Here's a breakdown of our six favorite Coachella Weekend 1 events:

Pre-festival
Airbnb Experiences 

If you found yourself in Palm Springs or Indio for a day or two before the festival began, you were fortunate enough to have access to one of the many Airbnb Experiences in the surrounding areas that put you in total zen-mode before the madness of Coachella ensued.

The Indio-area experiences this year included a medicinal plant hike through Yucca Valley (3.5 miles of natural, untouched land), a hot spring sunset (yes — Airbnb Experiences hosts will literally bring you out to a natural hot spring in the desert!), and an off-road ride in Joshua Tree sans waiting on massive park entrance lines.

With most a maximum of an hour away from where guests were staying, Airbnb Experiences was the best way to relax pre-festival while still getting a chance to take in the natural beauty of the Indio area in an authentic and hands-on way beyond the festival grounds.

For a full list of the Experiences offered, visit here.

Friday
Zoeasis

We kicked off our Friday evening at one of our favorite stops each year — The Zoe Report and Rachel Zoe’s fifth annual ZOEasis style retreat at The Parker Palm Springs. 

This year's setup was larger than previous years thanks to a gorgeous set of extra space being opened behind the the beauty lounge.

The Sephora Beauty Lounge which included countless activations including skincare, makeup and hair services provided by Amika, IGK, Supergoop!, and Sol de Janeiro — we were still rocking our festival braids from the event all the way into Sunday!

Guests sipped on frosé provided by Sunseeker rosé along with hand-crafted cocktails and fresh popsicles provided by Swatch in promotion with the brand’s new Energy Boost Collection.

Guests also took home custom Kendra Scott jewelry pieces from The Color Bar and were treated to custom fashion and product sketches from Zappos’ The Style Room.

Notable attendees included Victoria Justice, Kiernan Shipka, Alisha Boe, Paris Berelc, and Vanessa Morgan. 

Friday
Midnight Garden Party at The NYLON Estate

The NYLON Estate party was a night to remember, set back on a massive private estate in Bermuda Dunes that guests were shuttled to after a secret shuttle pickup location was revealed, making the party nearly impossibly to find unless you were lucky enough to be on the list.

Guests sipped on cocktails and kombucha around the massive pool while enjoying ShoeDazzle’s new collaboration with Erika Jayne who performed her own DJ set later that night.

A social-media worthy art installation on the tennis courts by Uninterrupted helped light up the scene between dance floors and food trucks.

Other notable guests included JoJo, Erika Jayne, Johnny Wujek, Markus Molinari, Pookie, Alisha Boe, Ashlee Simpson, Evan Ross, the cast of the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'. 

Saturday
Lucky Brand + Rolling Stone Live Present Desert Jam 2019

Lucky and Rolling Stone kicked off their third annual Desert Jam at the Arrive hotel on Saturday. 

In VIP, guests were treated to notable activations such as selecting two free Lucky Brand items of their choice (We chose the perfect denim jackets for Spring), a customization station for clothing items, a pair of Foster Grant sunglasses, a photoshoot area with a professional photographer and two different bars running specialty Jack Daniels and Ciroc cocktails.

We enjoyed the added privacy of the VIP lounge — the separation from the rest of the party made for a nice breakaway from the main pool area and really added a level of intimacy.

In the main area, the poolside stage featured live performances by X Ambassadors, Drax Project, Jax Jones and Ama Lou as guests sunbathed, danced and cooled down with CORE water.

Notable guests included Olivia Culpo, Ashlee Simpson, Evan Ross, Camille Kostek, Tom Sandoval and Brandi Cyrus.

Saturday
Moschino x The Sims 

Our favorite stop of the weekend, Jeremy Scott’s annual Moschino afterparty did anything put disappoint. This year, it was run in collaboration with popular virtual game, ‘The Sims’, in honor of the two brands’ latest capsule collaboration.

The bash transformed guests to what felt like an adult playground complete with a full-sized rolling rink and giant double slides where we slid down on potato sacks. Quick bites like tater tots and small burgers were served by Sonic which added to the whimsical, childlike feel and hit the spot after what had been a long day of dancing, sunbathing and partying. 

Perhaps the highlight for guests was the VIP experience provided by KAOS, the new night and dayclub by the Palms. The two-level KAOS installation overlooked the main stage on the grounds where guests danced the night away to sets by Diplo, ATRAK, Mazturbate and Saweetie. KAOS, which underwent its grand opening just one weekend prior to Coachella Weekend 1, has asserted itself as a force to be reckoned with by creating a buzz-worthy brand through its entertainment initiatives and Las Vegas facilities, which includes a 73,000 square foot dayclub and a 29,000 square foot nightclub. 

Hypnotizing pictures of Stella Maxwell flashed across the screen behind the LED main stage, alternating with images of Moschino’s logo — ironically, both Jeremy Scott and Stella Maxwell were seen grooving in the VIP section as the music played on.

Other notable attendees included Kiernan Shipka, Hennessy Carolina, Rowan Blanchard, Tommy Dorfman, Jasmine Sanders, Danielle Herrington and Nikita Dragun.

Saturday
Cash App Dome

The Cash App Dome afterparty was one of the most innovative party sets to roll out on Coachella valley during Weekend 1. 

The dome itself featured immersive video mapping while attendees sipped on adult juice boxes (debatably ten times more fun than the ones we had when we were little.)

Old ATM machines covered in graffiti served as the perfect Instagram photo-app before Quavo’s surprise performance around 1 a.m.

Other notable guests and performers included DJ Taco, Fai Khadra, Hank Korsan, Slick Woods.
