    Default Do bands sell their own merchandise at Coachella?

    Will festival vendors be selling band-specific merchandise, or only Coachella-themed shit?

    I needs me a Sleigh Bells tour shirt something awful. Me and approximately 2,136 fourteen-year-old girls trippin' on weak MDMA tablets.

    most bands have merch available at one general merch stand.

    yes they do, but buy early because band specific merch tends to sell out first. many times only available the day they are playing, too.

    I love the tour shirts that include Coachella on the tour dates, like my Jay-Z shirt that says Indio and my daft Punk shirt that says Coachella as their first date!

    keep in mind that they're only sold on the day the band plays.

    this confused me last year, though i was quite drunk.

    Recommended plan of attack: Get there early. Go to merch tent immediately upon arrival. Buy things and bring them back to your locker* (which you already reserved, because you are a savvy festival attendee). At the end of the evening, pick up locker stuff and go home. Repeat the following day.





    *Recommended plan of attack may vary for campers.

    Headliners and larger billed bands will have merch all three days. Basically, they sell it all until it's gone or it's the end of the weekend.

    I am kicking myself for not buying a Major Lazer hoodie last year, but I do love my Coachella football (only assholes call it soccer) scarf.

    Bargain! Shirts at gigs over here range from $40 for smaller bands and $50 for big ones. I can buy double the shirts

    It really is. The amount of shirts there always boggles my mind a little. A lot of people here budget extra because of the goodies offered. Courtney's plan of attack is a good one (get what you want early, store in locker).

    Which begs my next question: Can I reserve a locker in advance or do I need to do that once I'm onsite? The answer is probably somewhere in the FAQ, but you pros are so knowledgable that I trust you more.

    Better hurry - from the FAQ

    Will there be lockers on site?

    There are a very limited amount of lockers available for rent. Please go to: http://lockersonline.com/ .
    Be nice to Lou the Locker guy. He's super cool.

    The lockers will be sold out by the day of the festival. If you don't reserve it online ahead of time, you won't get one. A locker is a necessity IMO, especially if you aren't camping.
    If we're lucky something will happen. Some adversity will happen and something unexpected will happen and you'll get tired and you'll get hungry, you'll have trouble going to the bathroom, and you'll lose your car keys, and all these wonderful things will add up to some powerful experience that 10 years from now we'll say "We lived, we lived." - Wayne Coyne on Coachella

    I actually have a Comedians Of Comedy shirt that was made specifically for Coachella. They weren't allowed to sell them, because they aren't allowed to actually say "Coachella Music & Arts Festival" (or it needs to be properly licensed.) They wound up giving them away.

    Oh, and when you search Google Images for Comedians Of Comedy Coachella Shirt, you get this...
