It’s that time of year again when you throw on your muscle tee or flower crown, or both if you’re feeling brave, and make your way out to the middle of the desert because Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Weekend One is just about here.

It’s hard to ignore the massive festival that draws in thousands and floods your social media timelines with tons of photos with “#Coachella” written in the caption. Whether you have yet to attend or have gone many times, there are several things to look forward to during this three-day festival.

Here are four things to look forward at Coachella 2017 that will guarantee you have a good time:

1. Neon Carnival

If you haven’t been to it, you have at least heard of the Neon Carnival. This year, Brent Bolthouse, the creator of The Bungalow, will bring back the invite-only desert bash for its eighth year in a row featuring new games, rides and its continued partnerships with the likes of the Levi’s Brand, which will headline the event once again, and the return of Tequila Don Julio for the third time.

This time around, along with their wristbands, guests will be required to show their complimentary Lokai bracelet for entry into the carnival. Once inside, they can enjoy the Bud Light space where they can cool off and grab a drink, the hip hair styling stations hosted by Batiste Dry Shampoo and other services. Guests will experience this all while enjoying the sounds of Kayper, DJ Politik, Jesse Marco and DJ Ruckus. The Neon Carnival begins April 15 at 10 p.m.

Past celebrity attendees include Nina Dobrev, Taylor Swift, A$AP Rocky, Shay Mitchell, Leonardo DiCaprio, Rihanna, Zedd, Karlie Kloss and Karrueche Tran among others.

2. Parties

If you happen to get an invite, Coachella can be much much more than a music festival due to epic parties that are hosted in the desert. Typically attend by your favorite celebrity with amazing DJ’s and hosts, your experience can easily turn into a luxurious one if you are lucky enough to attend one of these events.

Katy Perry’s Easter Day Brunch

On Sunday, Katy Perry will make sure you don’t spend Easter alone when she hosts an Easter Day “Recovery” Brunch in La Quinta, California from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. local time. While there, guest can check out the exclusive pop-up debuting the Katy Perry Footwear collection, drink vitamin elixirs, hit the oxygen bar and relax with reflexology massages. Those who stick around will later be able to participate in the Cover Girl Easter egg hunt with the sounds of DJ sets by Mia Moretti, Balthazar Getty and Bobby French playing in the background.

REVOLVE Festival

REVOLVE will present the #REVOLVEFestival for its second year in a row, running on Saturday and Sunday between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time. The daytime desert parties will feature special guests along with brand activations and multiple performances. REVOLVE will partner with Billboard, which will host interviews and live content. Those who can’t snag an invite can tune in from home at Billboard for updates on the event. Last year, #REVOLVEFestival attendees included Ashley Benson Shay Mitchell, Kendall Jenner, Travis Scott and Leonardo DiCaprio, just to name a few.

3. The festival experience

Sure, you can sleep on the ground in a tent any day but to camp out in the desert and feel the overall vibe of Coachella is a one of a kind experience, from the fashion to the pop-up shops to that random dude who stepped on your foot and didn’t say “excuse me.” It is here that you learn some of your favorite stars are just like you, enjoying the music, refilling their water bottle and if you’re lucky enough, you can end up behind one of them in line as they try to grab a bite to eat before a set starts.

4. Music

Obviously, people look forward to the performances that take place during Coachella with some even uttering “I’m just here for the music.” From bands like Glass Animals and Lemon Twigs to world famous artists like Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga, there is sure to be an act hitting the stage that a festival goer is bound to love.

Coachella, Weekend One takes place from April 14 to April 16.
