8 Parties That Will Make You Wish You'd Been At Coachella

Coachella has become almost as well known for the parties surrounding the festival as it has for the talent at the festival. In fact, some people skip paying the hefty ticket fee and just trek out to the desert to hit the parties. Not surprisingly, there was no shortage of parties during the first weekend of Coachella this year.

The sweltering desert heat had a lot to do with the theme of most parties – pool parties. But, not all bashes were held poolside. One of the most popular parties at Coachella, Neon Carnival, was (surprise!) a carnival theme. No matter what the theme of the bash was, however, if it didn’t have a VIP studded guest list, it wasn’t much buzzed about. The most talked about shindigs at Coachella boasted impressive guests lists. Leonardo DiCaprio, Katy Perry, and Jared Leto were just a few of the celebrities who made appearances at different parties over the weekend.

The parties did not disappoint either. Ferris wheel rides, massage rooms, pop-up shops, touch-up stations, boat rides, and Stingray test drives, oh my. Every party had something unique to offer. Some bashes even offered guests a ride home. The hosts of the most popular Coachella parties thought of everything... well, almost. No one offered attendees a hangover cure.

8 Neon Carnival

Presented by NYLON, Olay Fresh Effects, and GUESS, Neon Carnival was THE bash of the weekend. Jared Leto and his much talked about zebra pants made an appearance at Neon Carnival, and you know a party is cool when Jared Leto shows up.

7 Lacoste Pool Party

Lacoste’s pool party, held at a private estate within walking distance of Coachella’s Empire Polo Field, has become one of the more popular pool parties for celebrities and festivalgoers. The two-day soiree provided lucky invitees and celebs - including Katy Perry, Joe Jonas, Lea Michele, and Emma Roberts - a place to relax and unwind from the craziness of Coachella.

6 H&M Loves Music Party

At this year’s H&M Loves Music Party, Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson hugged, the fire department showed up, and designer Alexander Wang announced his collaboration with the Swedish design house. Held at the Indio Performing Arts Center on Saturday (April 12, 2014), the party boasted more than 700 guests and performances by Major Lazer, Iggy Azalea, and Just Blaze. Kate Bosworth, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Florence Welch, and Lorde were just a few of the celebs that stopped by the H&M Loves Music party.

5 McDonald's & Stingray Desert Pool Party

What do you get when two American institutions, McDonald’s and Corvette, host a party? Lots of hamburgers, a chance to test-drive a 2014 Stingray, and of course, a bevy of celebrities.

McDonald’s and Corvette united together in the desert to celebrate the launch of McDonald’s new Bacon Clubhouse burger and Corvette’s 2014 Stingray. The poolside bash, held at the Bootsy Bellows Estate in Palm Springs, was filled with stars looking to test drive a Corvette or looking to sink their teeth into a Bacon Clubhouse burger. DiCaprio was seen chowing down on a burger and fries, and later, took a spin in one of several Stingray’s on hand for the event.

4 Guess Hotel Party

The Guess Hotel bash, a two-day poolside party held at the Viceroy, gave guests the chance to take a dip in a pool filled with inflatable toys and listen to an impressive list of performers, such as Calvin Harris, Pharrell Williams and Ellie Goulding.

3 Soho Desert House Pop-Up

One of the most exclusive private members’ clubs in the world – Soho House – set up shop in the desert (for a bit of time, at least). Soho House Desert was a luxurious retreat for those looking to relax and unwind.  A bevy of VIPs, including Nina Dobrev, and Alunageorge, made their way to the party.

2 Harper’s Bazaar Coachella Lunch

1 The Music Lounge at the Ingleside Inn

It Girl, DJ Mia Moretti, was one just one of the hosts at the three day long party, which was held at one of Palm Springs oldest establishments, the Ingleside Inn. (Nas and Jermaine Dupri also hosted The Music Lounge party.)

Katy Perry, who has clearly been party-hopping, showed up to support Moretti and was seen sipping cocktails next to the DJ booth. Some of the other celebrities seen roaming the grounds of the Inn during the three-day event included Jennie Garth, stylist Johnny Wujek, Chloe Norgaard, Jamie Chung, Eliza Taylor, DJ Todd Edwards, and Lindsey Morgan.
