It's official: Over the next several weeks, you can expect approximately 80% of your inbox, news feeds, and social media to be flooded with every single way to get festival-ready. There'll be no shortage of desert survival tricks, beauty hacks, and fashion tips—but what's the point of it all if you don't have a packed itinerary to document it all for the 'gram make the most of your two-hour trek east?

Just like last year, we're doing you a solid and rounding up the best Coachella parties and events (most of them unsanctioned by Goldenvoice, the festival's producer) happening during weekends one and two. From celebrity-faved Neon Carnival to Rhonda's epic rager (featuring a DJ set by Virgil Abloh, no less) to fashionable favorites like #RevolveFestival and Zoeasis and even the coolest kid-friendly poolside party, we expect they'll be packed with plenty of #sponcon photo opps, superstar sightings, merch giveaways, and more.

Keep reading for the top unofficial Coachella happenings you'll want to RSVP for (or sweet talk your way into)—and don't forget to bookmark this page as we'll be updating the list as the event invites land in our inboxes in the coming weeks.

Oh, and one last thing: Let's all agree to leave our feathered headdresses, bindis, and otherwise cultural appropriation-y stuff at home, okay?
