With thousands of music lovers flocking to the desert for Coachella, the weekend festival is finally upon us. We’ve rounded up a few key apps for your survival during your stay in Indio.
Official Coachella 2012 is the app that has all of your need-to-know basics: artist info, set times, a “favorites” list to help you personalize your Coachella experience by choosing your sets, and a detailed map.
If you’ve ever been to any sort of concert before, you know that eventually someone is bound to get separated from the group. Glympse is a free location share app, because everyone needs help navigating through the seemingly endless crowds from time to time!
Even though it’s not going to be the stereotypical scorching hot desert you imagine, staying hydrated is still the key to having endurance all weekend long. You don’t want to miss out on your highly anticipated shows because you’re drained and dehydrated, do you? Instead of grabbing that Red Bull, reach for some H20! Water Your Body app tracks water consumption and then plots it so that over time, so you can correlate your hydration level with how you feel. The app is also equipped with alarms to remind you when it’s time to re-up, since you’ll probably forget during all the jam sessions.
Whether you’re blanking at what the song title is, or just hear a side stage song that intrigues you, Shazam is your savior. The app captures a song, live or recorded, to find the name of the track and artist.
