It’s about the time of year again…That’s right, folks – it’s festival season! We’re gearing up for all the season’s best events, including New York’s own Gov Ball and Panorama NYC, classics like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, plus more from the likes of Sweetlife, Firefly and even Glastonbury across the pond. And how could we forget Coachella?
Arguably one of the biggest music festivals in the US, Coachella is held over 2 weekends (April 15-17 and April 22-24). With headliners like LCD Soundsystem, Guns N’ Roses, Calvin Harris, A$AP Rocky, the 1975 and more, there’s plenty to do and eat. But like all music festivals, Coachella can be exhausting so you’ve got to come prepared.
First things first: hydration is key. It’s inevitably going to be hot and you’ll probably be drinking, so it’s imperative to bring a water bottle. On behalf of the planet, you should bring a reusable bottle. On behalf of your own well-being, you should bring an insulated bottle to keep your liquids cold. Lucky for you, S’well bottles take care of both. Plus, the 9oz S’well is the perfect size for toting around. If you’re planning on bringing your fest best, we recommend the Galaxy Collection. The iridescent finish of these bottles bring just the right vibe.
Other festival essentials include a portable phone charger, small bag or fanny pack, reliable pair of sunnies, layers (especially at Coachella, where the temp can quickly drop at sundown) and a comfortable pair of shoes.
Don’t forget to catch us at Coachella this weekend on Snapchat or Twitter. Stay tuned to see how it goes. Happy festing, everyone! Stay cool.

The S’well marketing team is heading down to Austin, Texas this weekend for the South by Southwest film, music, and interactive media festival. In its entirety, the festival lasts 9 days and covers everything from film premieres and major musical acts to media presentations and emerging technologies. It’s definitely not our first rodeo so we’ve come to view ourselves as SXSW veterans. Here’s a list of essentials that always help to get the most out of the festival experience:
A bag to tote your essentials around in. This Pop Quiz Backpack from Herschel is a perfect day bag, just big enough to carry all of the necessities and cool enough to make a statement.
Sensible shoes are a must-have. The Adidas Superstar Foundation Shoes are the perfect mix between comfort and style.
Sunglasses are a necessity in the Austin sun. The People Cove II sunglasses from Retrosuperfuture offer a contemporary and versatile shape for all-day wear.
A portable phone charger to make sure you’re always powered up. We’re obsessed with the Triple C Primo Universal Power Bank. It’s sleek, stylish, and works with basically any portable electronic device.
Earphones for when you want to catch up on the latest SERIAL episode. These ME05 Earphones from Master & Dynamic are incredibly comfortable and provide for a high-quality audio experience.
Snacks to hold you over. We’re partial to the Wild Blueberry Pistachio bar from this bar saves lives.
Texas is HOT, so hydration is always key. Lucky for us, we know good and well how to ensure proper hydration: S’well Bottles. We’re releasing a new Limited Edition S’well bottle called ‘Austin Night’, a designer collaboration with Yoon Hyup for SXSW. Austin Night will be available to purchase online at swellbottle.com on Monday March 14th.
