One Coachella weekend down, one more to go! The hot music festival tore through Indio, CA, in a flurry of rock performances, mosh pits, fog machines, and gyrating fans last week, and it's round two this weekend. Between the celebrity attendees, glowing art installations, all-star musicians, and uber-fashionable fest attire, the event was truly a feast for the senses. If you weren't able to attend this year or just want to relive the music-filled madness all over again, we've rounded up the coolest snaps from Coachella's first weekend that will have you donning floral headbands and feeling the Palm Desert heat. Jump into the fun now!
With a cool-girl twist on a staple black maxi, this Coachella attendee supplied a look not only worth duplicating for weekend two at the festival, but also one we could safely take to any weekend beyond the desert, too. That's because this showgoer cleverly avoided the basic-black-maxi rut (and any concert-dressing clichés) with a floral blazer and low-heeled ankle-straps. The result is a much more sophisticated ensemble with a hint of the trends that's begging to be taken from the Summer concert scene to your next weekend brunch, happy hour, and well beyond. All the key pieces you need are below, just shop to get the look.

After a successful first weekend, Coachella weekend two is kicking off tomorrow! In honor of the famous festival, we're taking a look back at all the stars who have celebrated over the years.
Best friends Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore hit the grounds arm in arm in 2007, and Beyoncé Knowles danced in the crowd with Maria Shriver in 2010. Last year, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder showed PDA on their way to a show, and Emma Roberts stayed cool in a bikini to rock out in the desert. Click through to see them all, and check back at POPSUGAR for the latest from Coachella 2013!
The POPSUGAR Relax and Refresh Lounge, presented by Olay Fresh Effects, rolled through the desert for weekend one of Coachella and hit the hottest festival spots to celebrate. Check out our fun snaps from the weekend. If you are at Coachella for weekend two, then check out our schedule, and be sure to join us!
It's that time of year again: it's music festival season! Coachella's second weekend kicks off on Friday — with Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza, and more to follow. So what's topping our packing list? A standout crossbody bag, tribal wooden necklaces, and a pair of patent boots, to name a few. Watch on as our reporters Matthew Rodrigues and Allison McNamara talk all things music-festival style. On Allison McNamara: BCBG Max Azria jacket and top, Forever 21 skirt.
We are approaching the second weekend of Coachella and that means just one thing (OK, maybe two): camping! And while some people are worried about their sartorial music festival choices, we are more concerned with our digs. Enter Field Candy and its line of tents ($685-$762).
All six of the designs are creative, original, and wholly unexpected. Want to blend in with a field full of sheep? Sleep inside a giant book? There's a tent for that! We love them all, but our favorite is probably the watermelon tent. There is something so appealing about the idea of retiring to a fresh slice of fruit after a long day in the desert — don't you agree? No matter which one you choose, though, you are guaranteed to stand out in the crowd. Because we all know that's really the most important part of Coachella.
With SXSW under our belts, we're officially in music festival mode. With Coachella weekend two on the horizon — and since fashion has become almost as prominent as the music at the fairgrounds — we're styling up our bohemian best before we hit the desert. Watch today's episode for outfit inspiration — four ways — then, check out our music festival must haves. Shop the outfit looks below!
If you are heading to Coachella for to catch the second weekend, you are likely getting ready right now. As you know, Coachella is as well known for its style as for the music, so we're highlighting fun and functional pieces to bring to the festival — including furniture, accessories, games, and more. With a mix of sturdy, must-have basics and cute, just-because accessories, these aren't your average camping picks. Whether you're camping on site, staying at a nearby house, or channeling the festival vibe in your own backyard, you'll be smitten with these chic pieces for outdoor entertainment.
The first weekend of Coachella has come and gone, but we are still in love with all the cool outfits we spotted at the festival! Between the pool parties and the concerts, there are many moments to make a fashion statement, and celebrities like Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth, and Solange Knowles definitely made good use of their time in the desert. Katy Perry went playful in a printed outfit by Dolce & Gabbana, while Alexa went for an LBD to DJ the Lacoste Live party. Diane Kruger —who was joined by Joshua Jackson and designer Jason Wu — styled up a head-to-toe H&M outfit at the first ever H&M Loves Music party at the Merv Griffin Estate. We also spotted Alexander Wang at the Saguaro Desert Weekender presented by Swatch and Revolve Clothing and at the famed A/X Armani Exchange Neon Carnival.
