Coachella Parties

By now, it's no secret that there's a lot more to Coachella than just the music performances. Stars assimilate from across the globe to show off their boho best, and when they're not crushing the music festival like they would a star-studded red carpet, they're off enjoying the many soirees and shindigs that populate the tents in Palm Springs. After all, they'll need many occasions to show off all of their festival-wear!

While certain parties are VIP-only, there're plenty of events that all Coachella goers can access, no invite necessary (first stop: the Sephora beauty bar!). Go ahead—check out the complete list of Coachella 2015 parties!
