5 Things You’ll Find Inside the Coachella Wristband & Ticket Box

The Coachella wristbands have arrived! Our Coachella ticket boxes are here, so to celebrate I thought I’d take you through what’s in there, in anticipation…

What's in the Coachella Wristband box?

The arrival of the Coachella box proves that this festival likes to do things a little differently from most!

At Glastonbury you swap your ticket for a wristband at the gate. At Dour Festival we had a simple print out, and the same again for Field Day. But, for Coachella you get a 300g box, filled with goodies and the promise of an OTT experience in two weeks time, so long as you follow all the wristband rules that is, and trust me there are a lot of them.

What’s in the Coachella box?

With everything from the Coachella bracelet, to the Coachella Welcome Guide – here’s what you can expect from the Coachella wristband box.

1. The Coachella Welcome Guide

The 34-page Coachella Welcome Guide lays them all out for you, along with camping tips, parking advice and a description of all the food and drink stalls you can look forward to. There’s also a whole page on how to activate your Coachella wristband correctly.

No pressure.

You definitely need to do this before you go to Coachella though, so there’s no faffing at the gate.

2. A ‘Create Your Own Coachella Snail’ set

At Coachella they have this massive snail that goes around the main arena leaving a weird residue behind. Well, they did the year we went. It sounds very odd, but in the Coachella wristband box they give you a set to make your own.

Sure this will be a fun activity for the Coachella road trip we have planned.

I feel like every year they’ll have a new novelty thing to create in the Coachella wristband box, just to get you excited for the festival. We didn’t end up making these till we got to the USA, but a fun thing to talk about anyway!

Tips for Coachella

3. A ‘Coachella’ sticker

One for the car window on the road trip from the Coachella box. You can stick this wherever you like – laptop, window at home, bike, anywhere. WE saved ours for the back of the car for our road trip driving there.

Great way to show other drivers where you’re headed, and get in the Coachella mood!

4. A Coachella calendar set

I guess to remind ourselves of the good times long after it’s over. Nice though, and nice touch, but neither of us ended up using our Coachella calendars after to be honest.

5. The Coachella wristbands

With all the rules and regulations on the Coachella wristbands I was a bit nervous to take it out of the plastic packet, but I had a little play to see how it would look on my wrist…

Major jealous of this one - Coachella has been on my list for the last three years but convincing my friends to fork out has been tricky. Can't wait to hear about it!
