Coachella Weekend One Party Recap!

Written by David Mendez. Published: April 16 2019


Every year in April, Coachella takes the music, entertainment, and social media world by storm. And while the official music festival is the epicenter, it’s the exclusive brand-sponsored Coachella parties held outside festival grounds in the beautiful desert oasis backdrop of Indio, California, on multimillion dollar estates where celebrities and influencers like Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Jaden Smith, Hailey Bieber, Emily Ratajkowski, and many more soak in the desert sun and let loose for a weekend of fun.


These are our top 3 Favorite parties from Coachella 2019 Weekend One!


The Bootsy Bellows Party, presented by McDonald’s & PacSun, was the place to be this year before hitting the festival at night. Known as a Coachella staple for Young Hollywood’s biggest names to escape the desert heat and lounge poolside, it's become one of the most exclusive parties to be invited to, and this year’s party was no different as A-list talent and trendsetters Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Hailey Bieber all showed up and showed out looking their best. One of the great things about Bootsy Belows is that partygoers get to enjoy a day of McDonald’s and Pac Sun activations where you get free swag, epic photo opportunities to get the perfect Instagram shot, and don’t forget fan favorites like Chicken Nuggets and the World Famous Fries. And if the free swag wasn’t enough, Bootsy Belows had one of the hottest hip-hop artists in the game, Rich The Kid, come through and kill a set for everyone lucky enough to be invited.



Neon Carnival
For 10 years, Neon Carnival has hosted the best Coachella after-party where Hollywood’s elite escape the festival and party the night away. The Neon Carnival is an incredible outdoor carnival-inspired dance party equipped with its very own Ferris Wheel and an assortment of other carnival rides and games. After taking advantage of all the neon light photo opps, getting your thrills filled on the carnival rides, and eating the best gourmet food and craft drinks, you can head to the main area of the carnival that takes you to a massive DJ stage and dance floor where Hollywood’s biggest names laughed and danced until the early morning the next day. Recognized as one of the most exclusive parties in the world, catered for A-List celebrities, influencers, and industry insiders, the Neon Carnival guest list included Leonardo DiCaprio, Janelle Monae, and Odell Beckham Jr.

If Neon Carnival is the best Coachella after-party, the #REVOLVEfestival has taken the top spot as the best day party -- a week-long, celebrity and influencer-filled event where the trendiest and most fashion-forward group of attendees party and take advantage of all the Instagram-worthy photo opps. As the party name suggests, this is indeed a mini-music festival where guests can hop on carnival rides, enjoy gourmet bites, drink at all the open bars, and get free swag! And after taking in all the Coachella vibes that REVOLVE and other sponsored brand activations provide, you can head to the main stage (yes, they have their own stage) and dance the day and night away to tThe #REVOLVEfestival lineup that featured sets by SZA, Rae Sremmurd, Cardi B, and 2Chainz. If you're at Coachella, the #REVOLVEfestival is definitely the place to be and be seen, and this year's guest list included Shay Mitchell, Brooklyn Beckham, Peyton List, Madison Beer, Olivia Culpo, and more.
