The Sharp Law gives us the insider's tour of Coachella.

Every April, thousands of people flock to Indio for the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Now a days most festivals are so highly publicized they can be a bit cliché — Coachella, however, is populated by a vibrant art community complete with endless entertainment — trendy LA personalities, artist installations, and love-flowing festival culture.

This year marked my 8th year at Coachella. While the festival has certainly changed through the years, it has consistently remained one of the most fun-filled weekends I look forward to each spring.

Music wise, there are so many artists spread out over so many stages it’s impossible to see everyone. Some of my favorite performances this year were Todd Terje, Lykke Li, Marina and the Diamonds, Axwell v Ingrosso, Duke Dumont and Florence and the Machine.

Then there are the parties. This year our favorite retreat was the Soho House Desert House, at the Merv Griffin Ranch Estate. With beautiful sprawling lawns and comfortable desert lounges, it was the ideal spot to kick back and relax from the festival frenzy. Other notable events were Jeremy Scott’s Moschino party at the Interview House, DLX Dayclub and of course the infamous Neon Carnival.

Here are a few of my festival looks.

Jean shorts are hands down the most crucial thing to have on hand. The ones I’m wearing are by J Brand, made from a lightweight flexible material and perfect for the copious amounts of walking in the heat. The temperature tends to drop at night so it’s always good to bring a long sleeve shirt or hoodie if you plan on being at the festival into the evening.

For my pool party look I’m wearing Orlebar Brown x Emilio Pucci swim trunks and easy Orlebar Brown t-shirt with Sama Eyewear sunglasses.

As always Coachella – you were a blast. While I’m sleep deprived and rather dusty, here’s already to being excited for next year!
