Anyone who knows me knows that I have an embarrassingly deep love for all things Peter Pan. When I was little I only wore floral, frilly nightgowns and kept my slippers next to the bed at all times just so I would always be prepared if Peter came one to whisk me away. No matter how old I get I will always ride “Peter Pan’s Flight” at Disney, and will cry at any movie with the general theme of growing up / loss of childhood innocence. And I mean CRY.
One of the most defining characteristics about Coachella is that it takes place in the desert. There is absolutely no shade, save for what’s created by tents or various giant sculptures, so the sun beats down hard, making the already hot climate almost unbearable. Loose, light clothing is uniform and the key accessories that will save your trip are a water bottle, sunblock and chapstick (I promise you one of the worst parts of your body to get sunburned are your lips).
