Coachella Is Back: And So Are The Glitzy Parties

Music lovers were overjoyed to flock to the desert for the affair, and with headliners like Harry Styles, The Weeknd, and Billie Eilish — it was one for the books. But, for the most elite concert-goers, the pre and post parties of Coachella are the real ticket. From Spotify’s late night bash in the desert, to a private party with Jack Harlow, these were the most coveted events at Coachella 2022.

  1. The Red Hot Chili Peppers Kick-Off Concert: A large percentage of festival-goers make the drive from Los Angeles, and on April 14, before the festival even kicked off, The Red Hot Chili Peppers hosted an epic private event halfway between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. The band kicked off Coachella weekend on a high note at the all new Yaamava’ Theater at the Yaamava’ Resort & Casino, performing a set list that was packed with classic hits. The one-night-only concert was the perfect pit-stop for those making the trip to Coachella Valley.

  1. Nylon House: Nylon Magazine has been known to throw an epic Coachella party in years past, and this year was no different. Nylon rented out a gorgeous estate in Coachella valley on night one of the festival, and opened their doors to a slew of celebs, industry execs, and influencers at 10pm. The party carried on into the wee hours of the night, and featured swag bags from E.L.F. cosmetics and an open bar. Celebrities such as Anitta, Emma Chamberlain, Iann Dior, and Bretman Rock stopped by.
  1. Spotify x Swedish House Mafia: Long after the festival dust had settled and the music stopped, Spotify welcomed a select group of VIPs to an ultra-exclusive late night event. The streaming service hosted an epic bash with Swedish House Mafia on the glamorous Zenyara estate, and it was a star-studded night to say the least. Charlie Puth, Doja Cat, and Ty Dolla Sign floated around as guests sipped on craft cocktails and munched on free food – including taco bell! 

  1. Rolling Stone: For those who would rather soak up sun by the pool than the main stage, Rolling Stone hosted a luxurious afternoon at the Arrive Hotel in Palm Springs on April 16. In partnership with Lucky Brand. The glossy mag had endless photo opps and free swag for the VIPs who stopped by.

  1. Zoeasis: Fashion icon Rachel Zoe is known for her always-glamorous Coachella parties, and she really out-did herself this year. Cheekily titled ‘Zoeasis,’ this year’s party was truly a dream-like oasis and was filled with flowers, refreshing cocktails, beauty treatments, and good vibes. 

  1. Liquid IV: Saturday shenanigans continued with Liquid IV throwing a bash of epic proportions on the stunning Old Polo Estate in Coachella Valley. With A-list performers like Jack Harlow and Saweetie hitting the stage, the brand hosted a large group of Hollywood elite.

  1. Soho Desert House: Soho House has locations in a number of major cities like New York and Los Angeles, but they temporarily took over a new property in Coachella valley just miles away from the festival, and it was a relaxing oasis for guests and musical performers to take a load off. Soho ‘Desert House’ featured non-stop live performances and DJ sets, unlimited food & beverages, wellness experiences, and activations from brands like Hugo Boss, Supergoop!, Patron, and more.

  1. Neon Carnival: Arguably one of the most coveted Coachella post-party tickets is the illustrious Neon Carnival. The annual bash is always as colorful as it is over the top, and features a star-studded list of attendees. Paris Hilton hosted the carnival this year, those who were lucky enough to snag an invite got the chance to ride unlimited rides, slurp down craft cocktails, and munch on carnival food.  Oh, and you can’t forget about the endless free swag from partners like Levi’s, Liquid IV, and DirecTV.

  1. Pandora Oasis: Pandora jewellery celebrated all weekend long with a 90’s-inspired house takeover in Indio, California. The brand closed out the weekend in style with a special performance from Charli XCX, who performed an arrangement of her fan favorites as well as songs from her new album. The audience included Pandora’s clientele as well as VIPs like Chloe Kim, Big Freedia, Guapdad 4000, Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, Chris Horan, and more.

With week one behind us, music fans can now look forward to more epic events to come during weekend two. Soho House will once again open up their doors to their Soho Desert House oasis, and women’s clothing company SHEIN will host an official Coachella after party titled Zeuphoria – on Saturday April 23 at the Zenyara Estate. So, break out your best festival fits and get ready for more music and parties of epic proportions.
