Get the critical intel to get yourself to the best Coachella adjacent parties

So if you aren't going to Coachella this year don't fret, there are plenty of other things to do in Palm Springs and Indio on the first weekend. We call it Fauxchella, and we are sticking to it. From celebrity filled private villas to the more friendly vibes of Vestal Village, there is something for everyone at the Faux. Get your hustle on because they are not all easy to get into, but well worth it. Here is our very complete list of events for weekend one.

BASE CAMP - DAY 1:  Coming to Coachella and need a place to stay but turned off by ridiculously high prices of $400 - $800 per night at crappy price-gouging motels/hotels??? Then BASE CAMP is your solution with campsites available as low as $175.00 per person for the whole weekend (weekends 1 & 2)! Base Camp was created to offer a new experience to festival goers and various party monsters… located at the Lago Vista Ranch, Base Camp promises to deliver resort style living in the middle of the desert during your Coachella weekend. From the sandy beach lagoon, to the pool and jacuzzi, to the various sponsored activities, pop-ups and even hot air balloon rides, B-Campers and party goers will have easy access to various alcoholic libations and delicious vittles from established restaurants. Base Camp will even have the option for “ROOM SERVICE” for campers. Yes, you read that correctly. You’re in your tent, you’re hungry but you don’t want to walk half an acre to the food area…call a provided number, make your order and voila...from kitchen to tent delivery. How could you go wrong? On top of the tremendous value for campers, Base Camp will be throwing 3 days of pool/lake parties, on BOTH WEEKENDS, featuring special guest DJs and performing artists for B-Campers and guests who are smart enough to RSVP.  Care to join in the daytime parties?  Friday - Sunday: 12 pm - 6 pm: RSVP HERE: http://www.welcometobasecamp.com
