From March to October, music lovers around the world celebrate “festival season” by descending upon dessert sands, lakeside parks, verdant fields and art district parking lots, seeking top-tier talent across rock, pop, hip-hop, dance and more.

While the chance to see Beyonce on the main stage or a long-sought comeback (Blink 182 with Tom Delonge, anyone?) is special in itself, a full day or four in the hot sun, sharing bathrooms with a few thousand strangers isn’t always the picture of a perfect day. That’s what VIP tickets are for, and some VIP packages are more luxe than others.

The undisputed King of music festivals, the April festival in Coachella’s Indio Valley, CA., is perhaps the most famous musical gathering in the world. Not only does it bring out an artist or band’s best performance of a lifetime, it also breaks fashion trends, lures innumerable A-listers, and comes with some truly life-saving amenities. Rub shoulders with celebrities in the Coachella VIP and take full advantage of preferred parking lots, specialty food and drink vendors, air-conditioned restrooms and shaded seating areas. There are full cash bars just for VIP with shorter lines, as well as glamping options, and two very-special VIP sections offering Michelin-starred bites and more.
