The annual Coachella Music Festival attracts around 100,000 fans per day from all corners of the music, fashion and entertainment world. This Wristband Access and Party Guide will provide you with a quick read of the essentials to get the most out of your trip to Coachella.
Types of wristbands at Coachella
GA wristbands - GA entrance to the venue and day parking lots for all three days.
VIP wristbands - Allows the user access to the venue and all three venue VIP areas. The main VIP area which can be spotted with the white tents is located just next to the main stage. The 2nd VIP area is called the Rose Garden and has plenty of VIP amenities such as speciality food and beverage vendors. Food and beverages are not included but available on a cash basis. The 3rd VIP area is located just east of the Indio Central Market which are located next to the Sonora & Gobi tents.
Artist Guest wristbands - What differentiates a VIP wristband from an Artist Guest Pass? For the Artist Guest Wristband there is a separate green guest wristband that does not have an RFID chip which gets you backstage priviliges such as being able to access the viewing pits located on the left side of the stage. Artist Guest Passes also give the holders a private entrance that makes getting the party started a quick and hassle-free process. Once you’re in, you have access to the Artist Compound – a tropical oasis directly behind the main stage with open bars and grassy pathways that connect to each band’s trailer. How do you get Artist Guest Passes? Thanks to connections we have in the entertainment world, we have access to a small number of Artist Guest Passes which we provide to our clients each year.
