A Full Recap to Coachella’s Best Pool & After-Parties

The LA Girl team welcomed Coachella and festival season by celebrating with some of the best in music, fashion and lifestyle. If you’ve got Festival FOMO, cure it here by checking out where we went, who we saw, and what these parties had to offer. Let’s just say we can’t wait till next year.

Camp Poosh

Kourtney Kardashian Barker threw the ultimate 90’s camp experience – Camp Poosh- at Coachella and we had an absolute blast at this desert hotspot (our full rundown here). The throwback vibes were complete with DIY Caboodle crafts, photo ops in a bunk tent, and DJ picks from the past. With amazing snacks, an ear piercing station, and of course Kendall Jenner’s 818 Tequila, we could not get enough of the oasis.

Revolve Festival Day 1 & Day 2

Revolve Festival brought its star-studded event with the h.wood Group back for its 6th year. Day 1 was epic. If you don’t believe us, check out our full recap. Equally epic, was Day 2. There were even more big celebrity names ( we hear Leonardo DiCaprio was there) and models like Hailey Bieber, Irina Shayk, and Olivia Culpo. Plus they had more  innovative and chic branded activations and the performance lineup on the main stage included artists such as 21 Savage, City Girls, Coi Leray, and DJ Murda Beatz.  Kendall Jenner’s 818 Tequila also made an appearance to serve up some delicious cocktails.

Sonic Desert Presented by Coca-Cola Creations

This year’s first ever Sonic Desert Presented by Coca-Cola Creations brought mystical oasis vibes with the hottest pool party, featuring DJ Roxy Ferrari. Coca-Cola brought limited edition flavors for guests to try, while smartwater hydrated everyone too. Drip IV Therapy was also there  to deliver vitamin-infused blends to kept guests thriving all day. Kumo Luxe haircare kept everyone picture perfect and Dang Brother Pizza kept everyone full for the night ahead. DriveH2’s zero emissions movement was also in full swing by EIN which gave a glimpse into a more sustainable future. They had everyone color in  a “dry erase” white hydrogen fuel cell Mirai and a limited edition designed DriveH2 vehicle.

SHEIN’s Zeuphoria

The popular fashion e-retailer SHEIN hosted Zeuphoria at Zenyara Estate. This all-day event of Weekend 2 included quite the lineup with performances by Anderson.Paak, Fisher, Kaytranda, and more. With VIP guest like Tove Lo, Tyga, and 24Goldn, the party was on all day and night. Guests enjoyed cocktails by Don Julio Tequila and Heineken Silver.

Desert Gold 2023

Ace Hotel & Swim Club kicked off Coachella season with a party in The Amigo Room and pumping with music from New York Based record label DFA records. Outside, the party kept going as guests enjoyed dancing poolside to sets all weekend from Andre Power’s Link Up to LA based community radio station dublab. We headed outside the first day to catch the sunshine in our fashionable two piece. Speaking of fashion, Desert Gold brought in LA’s eyewear brand Akila for all your sunny needs and people got the chance to see the debut of a brand new art install, titled Superbloom, from artist Kim Sielbeck. You can see it now on the Commune wall of the hotel.

Tao Group Hospitality returned to the desert for TAO Desert Nights Presented by Jeeter. The invite-only event delivered an unforgettable night. Guests like Diddy and his son Christian Combs, Post Malone, Madison Pettis, Diplo, Becky G, Saweetie, and many more enjoyed a vibrant outdoor nighttime afterparty with a world-class performance by Tale of Us, a makeup and accessories after-hours glam bar, and photobooth activation presented by Urban Outfitters and FujiFilm. Sipping on cocktails by Casamigos, guests watched Red Bull Air Force team members sky dive into the party and skim across the water to land on the beach at Zenyara. Tao always guarantees lit experiences and high vibes, and they definitely delivered.

The Oasis at Casa Cody

The hotel takeover at the Casa Cody Palm Springs (the oldest operating hotel in Palm Springs) had artists and influencers staying and playing together for a good cause. Day 1 involved private programming for Original Creative Agency (OCA) and the United Nations at the hotel. Day 2 brought all the fun with a private poolside party benefiting FEMME HOUSE, a non-profit organization that fosters more equitable opportunity for women and gender-expansive individuals in the technical and behind the scenes areas of music. Guests danced to sets by music’s Honey and Mia Moretti, and enjoyed refreshments by CORE, Healthaid Kombucha, plus cocktails from Aperol and Casa Dragones Tequila. Safe to say they brought the heat to the desert.
