Your 2023 Guide to Coachella's Best Pop-Ups, Events and After Parties

Here's what to expect from Coachella 2023's top parties and events.

Springtime in SoCal means a trip to the desert for both Angelenos and tourists. As thousands attend music's most popular event, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, many of today's top brands are throwing their own unofficial parties. From live performances and brand activations to pop-ups and sponsored gatherings, lucky festival goers can take a break from the tents to visit these star-studded events. 

Coachella Valley's surrounding cities- Cathedral City, La Quinta, Palm Springs, and Thermal- will be covered with fans, influencers, and high-profile celebrities planning to attend these non-Goldenvoice events. Major invite-only events, including Nylon House, Neon Carnival, and Revolve Festival, are also returning to the desert.
