The Hidden Must-Do's To Add To Your Coachella Bucket List

It's that time to pack our bags, decorate our cars, and head down to Indio, California for an unforgettable weekend of music, art and festivities in the Coachella Valley. Coachella-goers from all over the world are eagerly preparing for the event that we have been highly anticipating since the moment it ended one year ago. While we are all well-aware of the lineup and will be spending most of our time running from set to set, there are many activities that could easily be over-looked but definitely worth your time. The Coachella experience is full of hidden opportunities to add to the adventure. Here are some things to add to your Coachella bucket list that you probably didn't know about.

Activity Field of Dreams


Location: Camp

This field will hold many activities such as 4 Corners, Spring Olympics hosted by the World Dodgeball Society, Dodgeball Tournaments, Hula Hoop contests, Balloon Toss, Giant Foosball, Bad-Dancing contest and much much more. If you get the win in any of these events, Coachella guarantees you prizes, bragging rights, and bad tans. Who would want to miss this?

Activities Tent

Location: Camp (Lot 8)

Open Thursday 9 A.M. – 3 A.M. and Fri – Sun 7:00 A.M. - 3 A.M.

The activities are kicking off Thursday morning at 7am-5pm with the Early Bird Raffle where you can win prizes for just showing up. These prizes include VIP upgrades and merchandise. There are also various contests such as ping pong, twister, giant jingo, and cornhole. If you're trying to unwind, you can take advantage of the power stations, lounge, and wellness area. The wellness center (open 8am-3pm) has a team to pamper your needs. Enjoy the spa, essential oil blends, foot soaks, iridology readings, and massages for 1$ a minute. Cash and Credit Cards are accepted.

Or enjoy the night activities from 11 P.M. - 1 A.M. with live DJs and continued competitions. One DJ to checkout is DJ Moustache who will be playing all-vinyl sets Thursday 11 P.M. - 1 A.M. and Sunday 11 P.M. - 1 A.M.

Barber Shop and Beauty Bar

Guys can get straight razor shaves and haircuts in the Barber Shop. Girls, get your hair done at the Beauty Bar, where they are offering blow outs and other such services. And the best part is, it's all free.

Coachella Art Studios

H&M Loves Coachella

Take an air-conditioned visit to the H&M tent where you can complete your festival look and shop the H&M Loves Coachella Collection. The tent isn't only for shopping, however. You can get water refills, participate in the interactive video booth, or connect with the charging station or Wi-Fi. You can also donate your old clothes to be recycled and receive 30 percent off your next purchase.

Heineken House


The Heineken House is "bringing the Old School into the New School" with surprise performers and a stacked lineup. But get this, your dance moves will light up the party. What does that mean? The Heineken House has a sustainable dance floor that converts your energy into usable energy generating the lighting for the venue. If you're 21 or over, be sure to check this off your list.

At the end of their last episode, "Grey's Anatomy" teased the return of another character from Meredith's past. After the return of Patrick Dempsey's, Derek Shepherd, Grey's fans know that no one is off-limits.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.

All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.

At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
