It was an amazing good time at Coachella 2014 opening weekend (April 11-12) at The Saguaro Desert Weekender parties. There were so many parties to talk about and be proud to be invited to, but we have the exclusive on the Saguaro! Our favorite party weekend was put on at The Saguaro Palm Springs. The two-day non-stop blowout celebration was hosted by the crème de la crème of the sophisticated music and lifestyle scene: The dFm, Hello Stranger, Rolling Stone, Opening Ceremony, Rhonda International, and DJ Harvey.
Celebrities and VIP guests, that's me, experienced a daytime pool party featuring a live set from world renowned DJ’s and artists. On the first day of The Saguaro Desert Weekender Beyonce's sister Solange relaxed in the Opening Ceremony X TEVA Lounge and bounced to the performance of FKA Twigs, while everyone enjoyed complimentary drinks and gifts from Reyka Vodka, Miller High Life, Hornitos, 47 Brand t-shirts, Klorane, Keds, and Square.
For those guests who were able to get up early each morning, like me, because I do not drink, they were able to enjoy free CorePower Yoga sessions before the day’s festivities began. All of the happening hotel guests received the newest snapbacks and vintage t-shirts at the 47 Brand lounge. Michelle Branch was all over these!
Friday night everyone was treated to FKA Twigs (exclusive live performance) plus DJ sets by Kingdom, Prince Will, Total Freedom and P. Morris. Then Saturday night RHONDA QUEEN OF THE DESERT held her crown while super sexy international DJ Luminaries threw down and a torrent of talent from Rhonda International dominated the night with Newbody, Chromie, James del Barco, Goddollars, and Paradise.
At the pool for most of the weekend celebrities were congregated. Solange, Robin Antin, Michelle Branch, Blake Anderson, Laura Vandervoot, Edison Chen, Sophie Dickens, Oliver Trevena, Trombone Shorty, Chit Chat, DJ Heidi, Dev Hynes and Alexandra Starlight & Zachary James were all in the thick of the excitement throughout Friday and Saturday.
The pool was where all the action was. Solange just had to put her fork down and take a break from eating kale at Saguaro's Tintos to enjoy British artist FKA Twig's set. She danced poolside where Robin Antin founder of Pussycat Dolls and Lauren Bennett danced and partied the entire time as well. Laura Vandervoort from "Bitten" and Oliver Trevena arrived and got cozy together in the "Hornitos, Reyka Vodka & Miller Lite" VIP area. Who knew?
Blake Anderson from Workaholics requesting to get hair braided at Klorane's braid bar. He also enjoyed reyka vodka while listening to FKA Twigs. He checked out the gifting suite and left with a bag full of Teva gear.
Everyone got excited when Lana Del Rey's band attended the Saguaro Desert Weekender, the day before hitting the stage at Coachella. Miss Del Rey could not attend as she was keeping it low key before her show. That was a bummer for the stargazers.
The first Coachella 2014 weekend at The Saguaro Resort is one heck of a party. Take a gander at the photos in the slideshow. This is the place to party for Coachella 2014 music festival! The good news is you do not have to wait until next year to enjoy The Weekender! The party continues this coming weekend for part 2!
