Coachella Parties — 2010 Edition

Posted on 07 April 2010 by shaunt


The Coachella experience is not complete without checking out the other parties happening in the desert.

Alright, troops―you know the drill. It’s that time of year again when your best buds at Anthem rally together for our annual Coachella desert decimation. We’ve been knocking your socks off, blasting you with music provided to you by some of the finest internal DJ’s around, liquoring you up with bars equipped with bottomless wells, and hooking you up with all sorts of radical products our sponsoring partners in crime throw our way.

We’re switching properties once again, and while we can’t tell you where we’ll be shacking up for the weekend of April 17, we can give you two keywords you’ll keep hearing for the next two weeks: LA GOON. That’s right, people―we’re taking it up a notch with the incorporation of a Tarzan, King Of the Jungle-style lagoon as our centerpiece. The usual accommodations will be duly provided, too, of course, from a huge pool to a bar fit to serve kings and queens. For both those of you who know the debauchery we dish out and the folks out there who have only heard about our festivities and haven’t actually been alike, let’s look at some photos and videos from our past successes…

Drooling yet? We are.

No RSVP information yet. Stay tuned.
