You have one week to get desert-ready for this year’s Cochella. Last year with temperatures in the 90’s you are going to need more than knowing the lyrics to every David Guetta song to get you though 72 hrs of shadeless days and camping nights. Below is a list to help you survive

FOR YOUR HEAD

First, let’s talk about your head…The Bailey Western’s Chasin will keep the sun off and also keep you cool with it venting holes.

If you are looking for a hat with a more classic look but also something that will stand out in the crowd try the Zanzibar. It is sturdy enough to shield the sun and light enough to let some air in.

FOR YOUR POCKET

Zip-Around Leather Wallet- It’s slim, but easily handles all the cash and cards guys usually stuff into a bulky billfold, and the added zipper ensures everything inside stays put. Plus you’ll look good pulling it out to pay for your $20 beer

FOR YOUR SKIN

kielhs

Facial Fuel UV Guard- High level SPF 50 broad-spectrum guards men from daily damage and premature aging. The Caffeine and Vitamins C & E will make you selfie ready, by invigorating tired and dull skin.

FOR YOUR EYEBALLS

warby

Warby Parker’s Quentin has a polarized lens and a keyhole bridge with style for days. They also won’t break the bank and prevent you from completely losing your mind when you drop them crowd surfing.

FOR YOUR SLEEP

tent

Coachella Safari Tent- This habitat for two with a queen bed, outlets and air-conditioning, is the perfect place to enjoy a breezy escape from the scorching indie pandemonium.

With the tent you’ll also get VIP wristbands that grant you shuttle service and backstage access. And there’s a 2am noise curfew in these parts which means you’ll wake up refreshed and ready to properly chat up the ladies at the beer tent.

FOR A DISTRACTION

frisbe

Sometimes bands don’t take the stage on time and when this happens, find an open patch of grass and pull out this frisbee made by WHAM-O.
