Here Is The Coachella 2018 Fashion & Packing Guide

| March 16, 2018

Coachella fashion is a festival topic across the internet everywhere. Celebrities whip out their designer festival trends and magazines even predict what they will wear. However, we at iEDM are about practicality.

We think you should consider comfort first, since you will be dancing non-stop for hours on end. Then we believe you should let your inner self shine with epic rave wear, that you can't always let out in your daily life. Wear the rainbow, get trippy, be weird, be you. Festivals are about self-expression, so go with fun themes and dress to be your truest self. 

Indio is a city in the desert in the in the Coachella Valley region, which averages high 90s in April. Opt for tank tops and crop tops, but bring a hoodie just in case the desert temps drop once the sun goes down. 

Most importantly, have fun with your wardrobe. Rock the unusual pieces you can't seem to find the right occasion for. And don't forget to pack those essentials, like a backpack and a festival blanket or tapestry

Here is the 2018 Coachella Fashion & Packing Guide: 


1. Be Black Light Ready 

Let your outfit be part of the magic as you wander through the festival grounds. When you enter a black light area or are raging at a stage during those deep blue lights, let your outfit illuminate with the production. You are adding to the experience by being art yourself. Check out more Black Light Ready styles HERE


2. Be The Unicorn That You Are 

Festivals are a place to shine. If you are a vibrant unicorn, dress like a unicorn. Or maybe you're a silly sloth, embrace your inner sloth life. Or if you just wanna kitten around, opt for the Cat Collection


3. Dress For Those California Vibes 

Nothing screams Coachella more than palm trees and tropical feels. We've all the seen the epic Coachella sunset photos with silhouettes of palm trees decorating the sky alongside the ferris wheel. Wear palm trees and blend right in to the atmosphere. 


4. Let Your Style Flow Out Of This World

Coachella is for dreamers. It's perfect for late night conversations about the universe with someone you will never seen again. Dress out of this world with galaxy prints and blast off your weekend with good vibes. From booty shorts to trippy t-shirts, there is a nebula for everyone. Make your space booty bounce right out of this dimension. 


5. Stay Safe AND Stylish  


Every festival-goer needs a hydration backpack to survive a multi-day event without having to buy a water after every set. Refillable and convenient, hydration packs are lightweight and provide you with 2 liters of water. It conserves pollution from plastic water bottles and saves you cash, because water refill stations are free. For Coachella, don't get a basic one, stand out from the crowd with a holographic one. 


6. Pull Out Those Weekend Shorts 

It's the freakin' weekend and you're about to have some fun! Coachella is a festival vacation paradise and your clothing should match those weekend vibes. Whip out those weekend shorts with trippy and vibrant designs. Save those solid colors for Monday, Coachella is a place for expression.  


7. Tank Top Season Is Here

Show off those tattoos with a tank top. It will be plenty warm, so let your arms get their golden tan for summer. Don't forget your bandana to protect you from dust, remember Coachella does technically take place in the desert. 


8. Have A Hoodie Ready In Case You Get Cold

The weather forecast should be beautiful, however once the sun sets, the breezy desert can shock you with the temperature drop and there's nothing worse than being cold at a festival. Pack a hoodie or a zip-up just in case those desert nights get chilly. 


9. The Trippier, The Better 

Festivals are a great time to get lose and get a little weird. Rock that Cheshire Cat T-Shirt you love while you fall down the rabbit hole of Coachella. Check out more Trippy Designs HERE.


10. Glow Out In The Crowd

When the sun goes down, the freaks come out. Let your inner freak SHINE on the dance floor with an entrancing space whip. They are fun to play with, great to share, and perfect for mesmerizing by-standers. Find your perfect LED toy in the Glow Factory HERE


11. Don't Forget A Blanket To Chill On

During the daytime, you are going to want a blanket to rest on while you vibe with friends to great music. At least one friend in the group needs to have a designated festival blanket that you take with you stage to stage as r a home base for your squad. Roll one up on this Chill Blanket


12. Shine Bright Like A Diamond   

The number one festival trend right now are kaleidoscope glasses. They look trippy and are fun to put on and watch the production prism before your eyes. During the daytime they aren't the most practical, however whip them out for those selfies because they look amazing. 


Coachella offers an eclectic line up, so be a part of the eclectic crowd with your style. We are counting down the days until we get two unforgettable weekends of some of the best performances of a lifetime. Check out the Coachella 2018 Lineup HERE
