If you are lucky enough to be attending Coachella this year, it’s great to know that having the best (and not to mention stress-free) trip possible isn’t always about planning stylish outfits and comfortable shoes. Packing and prepping your bag with some life-saving items (we’re talking phone chargers and bandanas) is equally important, especially since you are going to be in the hot desert sun for three days straight.
Phone chargers and sunblock aside, it’s also wise to bring along items like handy wipes and facial mists. If you’re staying on-site at the Coachella campgrounds, access to showers may bring about long lines you don’t want to deal with. Water bottle rules can be tricky, so adding the allowed plastic and reusable bottles to your Coachella packing list is a must. If you aren’t heading out to Coachella this time around, this list is a good reference if you’re attending other future festivals like Bonnaroo and Electric Daisy Carnival.
To make your Coachella experience as enjoyable and painless as possible, here are 19 last-minute items to get from Amazon Prime.
