How To Prep For Coachella 2019

Emily Treadgold #7, Festivals Leave a Comment

Festival season is among us and if you’re anything like me and enjoy looking glam while enjoying good music, you’ll know that having the right attire and product is key. Check below for all our product recs as well as who we’re stoked to see! Follow Sam on her journey on Instagram but she'll be on our account all day too. So stay tuned. 

Cute Clothes

Both VICI and Cocobelle have the perfect wardrobe to make sure you’re the best dressed in the dessert. Between light and breathable fabrics and stylish and comfortable sandals, you’ll never want to go to any other source ever again.

Facial Care

Sunscreen is key, but when I’m catching the small acts starting in the afternoon, I need to find the perfect setting spray. Recently, I’ve paid more attention to my product and brand and prefer to buy anything cruelty free. FACE Atelier created a setting spray that is perfect for the desert sun!


I hate having to actually walk back to the bathrooms to wash my hands because I got food on them. But now that I have  Elyptol in my life, I can be safe knowing I’m clean and germ free. This product also contains natural ingredients that are great for my  skin and the environment. The best part is that I can use use Elyptol as frequently as I’d like without drying out my hands!


Definitely pack a water bottle. This year, I’m  pretty stoked about my Santevia Recovery Stick! It activitates when you submerge it in any water bottle or glass. You just shake or stir for 30 seconds, and within within 3-5 minutes  your water will reach optimal pH and chlorine reduction . This hydrogen-rich, antioxidant water speeds muscle, skin, bone, and brain recovery.


Hours of the sun and loud music usually end in with a migraine, but now that I’m testing out Coachella with Migrastil this year, I’m pretty optimistic. This stick contains all-natural ingredients of peppermint, spearmint and lavender oils in a coconut oil base. If I feel a migraine coming on, I just apply a small amount to my temples, forehead and back of my neck. Seriously I have never felt more prepared in my life.

Acts we’re excited to see:

Friday: Childish Gambino, The 1975, Janelle Monae, BLACKPINK, Kacey Musgraves, Ella Mai, SG Lewis, King Princess

Saturday: Kid Cudi, Weezer, J Balvin, Billie Eilish, A R I Z O N A, Bazzi, Maggie Rogers, Tame Impala

Sunday: Ariana Grande, Khalid, Zedd, CHVRCHES, H.E.R, Sofi Tukker, Lizzo, Clairo, Easy Life

Your Playlist From Drax Project:

Drax Project hails from New Zealand, but their song “Woke Up Late” featuring Hailee Steinfield has made waves in America. They’ve opened for acts like Camilla Cabello, Lorde, and Ed Sheeran.

  • Samantha Fong

    At 15 years old, I begged my mom to take me to Walmart to get Taylor Swift's debut deluxe album and I never turned back. This was my very first entry point to stan fandom. Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee I was exposed to a ton of music - from rapping 3 6 Mafia to bopping to Justin Timberlake's solo discography. Now, in LA have a day job working in nonprofit development, but by night, I'm a full-fledged fangirl. I'll listen to generally any genre, but I'm a sucker for a good pop song. If you ever need someone to scream sing Carly Rae Jepsen's E·MO·TION with, I'm your girl. No, I still have not gotten over the One Direction hiatus. Please continue to respect my privacy.
