Coachella day 1! START NA!

So para ma knows nyo ang ganap.. i have included the performance sked here… From bottom to top sya. So for this day ang main headliners is M83, The Horrors, but syempre ang pinakabongga yung mainstage… SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA!

Eto din yung map para d kayo maligaw pag explain ko…

Play this! Para mafeel nyo ang ganap and kung sino sila! 🙂

Ok, aminan na. I don’t know most of the artists performing but yun na nga gow lang ng gow para matuto nga ako. OHH D BA! I’m really much of a concert type of girl, yung mga musicfest baguhan lang ako dito. haha! Si V talaga ang knows na knows itich.

So sige, let’s start off with Palm Springs. From LA, we drove for about 2 hours to reach Palm Springs. We got there about 10pm the night before and may party na nagaganap sa coachella events. But deadma na gurl, dapat full batt ako for first day!

Palm springs is really pretty. Obviously, maraming palm tress. haha! UUYY! akala nyo maraming Palm as in kamay noh? choz!

We stayed in Palmsprings and coachella is about 45 minutes away! This is our resort/hotel RENAISSANCE.

Medyo malamig parin compared sa best in init satin pero, avail na talaga sila sa swimming ganap!

WE GOT OUR VIP PASSES! YIPPEE FOR THAT! So ang casting namin is David Milan, Ino Caluza of Viktor jeans, V and me!

This is their welcome pack! May festival guide, wristbands which you cannot take off for the 3 days of festival (so yes, ililigo mo sya) and map! And may cute diorama din na kajoin! A for effort!

Medyo d namin knows what to expect but thanks to pareng google na best in ganap. Sabi nya 50% chances of rain daw.

V!

AYAN! Ayaw paawat! Sabi ngang uulan eh, naghanging pa! Sabi ni V, paano kung umulan? Sabi ko.. eh d pwede ako magswimming! hahah!

Sige lang ng sige!

We got the package so it’s good kasi d namin bet magdrive palagi to the festival grounds. The bus runs every 20 minutes so perfect!

Ang bongga lang ng palm springs!

When we got there, majinitey! Since ayokong mag PAWIS hilton.. change outfit! Remember, one trick is to always have a back up outfit for festivals!

May bobo move din kami, we didn’t know the difference between the VIP pass and normal pass. So best in sama lang kami sa tao. We could have avoided this line. But deadma, kodakan time!

Another note, SLR and cameras with interchangeable lens bawal din. SO make sure may point and shoot camera kayo.

Since blockbuster hit ang coachella, they also offer camping facilities near the festival grounds!

Also yung mga friendshipeys namin sa US ang nagturo, the best thing about the Coachella culture is that ang daming ganap na parties everywhere. Mostly invitation only, so make sure to tell your friends na to get your names on the list. Si milan, best in avail, deadma sa walang tulog.. pinuntahan talaga nya ang mgaganap after the concert. Some parties are even during the festival. And also the parties are usually in a secret locations- starstudded kasi lagi! Like the party Milan went to, may meeting place lang then when they see your name sa list, may shuttle to bring you to the venue.

After the security check and all. eto na! Nakapasok na kami!

SUSKO ANG LAKI! So wag kayong magsasabi meet mo ako sa dulo or sa tabi ng puno. D magwowork dito! haha!

They usually “card” us asians, kasi ang youngness ng itsura natin! choz! So make sure you go to an ID check booth. Para may wristband ka na 🙂

Madami ding lafang! So avail lang!

BABAD SA ARAW!

Make sure to clean up after you eat! Bawal ang sanay sa yayey ditich!

The bars are in one area. Bawal drinks sa venue! Ok narin kasi hindi madumi sa festival grounds. Maririnig mo parin naman ang ganap!

Tip: If you are planning to drink ng maaga. Gawin nyo na sa balur or hotel. Medyo pricey ang drinks nila. We call that PRE-GAME

BILISAN MO SA PHOTO MILAN! Tommy na akitch!

After going around, we finally saw found the VIP Area. The VIP area , 2 lang, and beside 2 of the main stages- COACHELLA MAIN and SAHARA. And I would say worth it ang VIP pass coz you can eat, drink, chill and see the ganap sa stage na yun. But yung outdoor stage, Gobi (very indi toh) and Sahara (mix music) walang VIP area na malapit. Eh since beginner lang ako, wala naman akong nagperform dun noh! haha!

PAPULIS NYO NA NGA TOH! AYAW PAAWAT!

The famous ferris wheel!

Eto yung extrang ganap. Hindi naman toh stage- it’s called the DO LAB, but parang basaan party lang! haha!

Padilim na! Baka yan na si JULANIS MORRISTTE! Pabasa parin sila ng pabasa!

We checked out some of the stages, since indi si V.. gow kami sa GOBI stage kahit d ko knows!

Yung mukhang d alam ang ganap. Haha!

Syempre d ko masabi sa inyo sino sya, d ko nga rin kilala eh! haha!

Around the area, maraming ganap! Mga ganito!

Isa sa performer… hahahha! D ko ulit knows!

Ayan si V, mukhang knows nya. Msaya sya eh! haha!

This is the VIP area beside the Sahara tent. Yung sahara tent very dance ang ganap, so very active ang kembot dito. haha!

At keri pati jumping shots! D mahahalatang pang photo lang. choz!

Puro taasan ng kamay so make sure handa kayo! haha!

D + V

Tinawanan nila ako, dala ko na naman yung banig ko. haha!

Hindi hinuhuli ng pulis ang nakahubad. At lalong hindi din bastos ang nakahubad. Make sure lang ganyan kayo ka-cut! haha!

More basaan! victor BASA na silang lahat! D ko sya inavail, baka lamigin ako!

After that, we went to the OUTDOOR STAGE. Hindi malalayo ang stages ha!

See the diff? Mas relax ang tao dito 🙂 Hindi taasan ng kamay! Hindi parang may pabitin ang ganap!

V and Ino

Pagbored.. hala retouch!

This band, neon indian daw sabi ni V. San ang indian???

Hmmnn… baka sya.. pwede naman syang pumasang indian. choz!

Tipid sa upuan! haha!

GROUP SHOT!

Ok, here’s the thing… nung si V and Ino nagstay sa stage. Nagpunta na akong VIP area para lumafang… guess what. Celebrity time na pala! Ang daming utash! We first sa the guy EMIL from Speed racer.. since medyo nagulat ako d ako nakaphoto. haha!

Then I saw this guy..ERIC BALFOUR from 24 na series, Eddie from THE OC, and i think nasa Texas chainsaw massacre din sya. I called him name, syempre chika ng konti biglang labas ng camera. Haha!

May isa pang artista! Si V! bwahahahha!

Next up.. COLIN HANKS! Anak ni Tom Hanks and madami din syang ganap like Dexter and Madmen.

So honestly.. dun ko narealize… MAY FUTURE KAMI DITO! So magstalk nalang kami! haha! D ko pa naman kilala ang artists so chika muna kami dito! haha! ang coachella naging FANS DAY! haha!

While reviewing my photos… eto pa nahuli ko! Haha! I had to ZOOM it in for you guys. Ang d kilala yan, hindi cool dahil d alam ang Baywatch! haha!

I checked the performer… d ko parin knows! haha! Balik sa tent ulit! Sabi ni V, Arctic Monkeys daw. D naman sila mukhang unggoy. Choz!

Naki join ako ng slight! haha!

Then eto na.. when i got back sa VIP tent some girls complimented my outfit.. nung nasight namin… GUSTO KONG MAHIMATAY! TOP MOWDELS! So chinika ko na!

HANNE GABY ODIELLE and Jacquelyn Jablonski! I love them both! Ang bait nila. Ininvite pa nila kami to chill with them! Hoy, d ako magpapakafeeling na friends na kami..haha! But FAN GIRL MODE AKO! As in kumain kami with them!

NADAGDAGAN PA! KASIA STRUSS!

Jacquelyn

D BA? Sino naman hindi maloloka nun! So note to self… UMEFFORT SA OUTFIT! So after our chitchat and ganap with them. Super nice nila. When they found out we are from Manila, they were so excited to tell me that they know Bryan boy! So ako naman, best in tawag kay Bryan. Hindi ininda na madaling araw ata satin! haha!

So after i went to the bar to get a drink, medyo may pila.. tapos may super sweet couple beside me… When the girl started talking to me.. Nakita ko si Milan lumaki yung mata. Tapos sabay.. hinahanap ang camera! Too bad we left it sa table! Iniisip ko.. mukha syang familiar habang kinakausap nya ako.. THEN THERE! NAALALA KO NA SINETCH ITEY! NINA AND IAN of VAMPIRE DIARIES!

Trust me when you see them, ang hirap din talaga makilala ng mga celebs!

Sorry for the photos… camera phone lang! Here when Milan stepped back and Nina was talking to me.

Palapit ako kay Milan to get anda. Sya ang treasurer…

Then chinika nya pa kami more. Eto na yung mga stolen shots ni Milan. Remember, medyo boo-boo din kasi maging stalker ng celebs. So since busy na sila maglabingan, d ko na kinulet for a photo. haha! So paparazzi shots of Milan nalang!

Check ulit.. wala pa si V. Hintay sa tent!

And we saw SKYE FERREIRA! Singer sya.. check nyo sa youtube 🙂

So finally V arrived and we decided to move to the grounds na

Coachella is so pretty at night!
