the vestal village rises again... good times are coming soon.

Psst... did you know that located south of the shops, restaurants and stores of the Indio Valley there lies a magical place that pops up every Coachella weekend? This place is a land filled with bikini rockin’ hotties and hard bodied fellas. A place where live music and djs play all day and the drinks flow and flow. This land is the VESTAL VILLAGE.

Like all things amazing during Coachella weekend, this magical mini-festival is only accessible with an invite. That invite unlocks the gates to one of the largest pools in the valley, complimented by a lake with the village spread around the field, starting on Friday and ending on Sunday. Inside the village, guests will find many different kiosks and tents that range from beauty touch ups, clothing and swimsuit options (for those that can’t pack appropriately), Vestal sunglasses and watches and much more. Located near the lake is the food court filled with various options to appease the gastric cravings, while all around the pool, satellite bars serve the alcoholic nectars that keep everyone’s tipsy energies on fire. For those die hard Vestal Village fans, camping setups are also available with sign ups starting on Thursday.

If you don’t have an invite or a secret passcode to RSVP, you can try your luck and plead your case to the Vestal Village gate keepers through the rsvp link below.
