Come April, hundreds of thousands of people descend upon California's Indio desert for one thing and one thing only: Coachella. Nowadays, though, Coachella means so much more than just the music festival. It means exclusive parties, luxury lounges, and a crazy-bright thing called Neon Carnival. This year, we carried on our tradition of throwing two blowouts: the Midnight Garden Party and Sunday Recovery Brunch. For one night and one sunny afternoon, we transformed a private estate in Bermuda Dunes into a NYLON haven, complete with braid and beauty stations, photo booths, special DJ guests, UMAMI burgers, feet painting, juices, hair tattoos, custom Silver Car pillows, and a Freeform bus bar located on an experiential campground, in celebration of its new show, Dead of Summer (premiering this summer). There, celebrities like Peyton List, Margaux Brooke and Brittany Furlan were spotted glamping. (Kristen Stewart, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hailey Baldwin, and Owen Wilson were also in attendance.) Oh, and there was an adult beverage for everyone. Tequila? Look no further than Tequila Avion. Beer? Heineken. Vodka? Absolut. And Cupcake Vineyards popped the bubbly. Sure, sure the festival was fun but there was magic to be made outside of the grounds and we provided it in full—glittery pink and all. So, while that jet lag begins to settle in, check out how we do Coachella, in the gallery ahead. See you next year.
