Even though Coachella sold out early this year, there’s still good reason to head out to the desert. The parties, once a supplement to the Coachella experience, have now become a comparable (if not better) alternative to the festival. This year over a dozen parties have been announced in the desert, many of which are free and have special performances from artists with time slots at the festival. As we’ve been doing for the last few years, here’s a list we’ve compiled of Coachella 2013 parties. Here we go:
April 11 & 18: There’s no better way to start your Coachella experience than attending FILTER Magazine’s 11th annual Coachella Pre-Party! Stop by for performances by surprise DJs, drinks, and for a great time. The secret location will be announced soon.
April 12-21: Here is Ace Hotel’s Desert Gold event’s official press release.
Each year during Coachella, we really get in the spirit to celebrate music and rad people and getting everybody together. Our hotel in the desert becomes a veritable clubhouse for nice people, artists and good vibes. During this years two Coachella weekends, we’re excited to host our fifth annual Desert Gold at Ace Hotel & Swim Club in sunny Palm Springs, California. Desert Gold offers festival goers the opportunity to relax, enjoy, network and recharge at an inspiring intersection of global creative culture and good vibes. Last years Desert Gold featured an art installation by Steven Harrington and performances by established and up-and-coming musical guests from around the world like Thom Yorke, Flying Lotus, Florence Welch, Questlove and more. This years Desert Gold partners include Third Man Records, Miss Lilys, The Do-Over, NPR Music they’re bringing their A-game to food, music and everything else your heart could desire.
