Just because you didn't score a Coachella wristband this year, doesn't mean you had to miss out on the Coachella Valley fun. In fact there where are enough pool parties, day clubs, and after-hours events to keep you partying all weekend long while seeing some of your favorite acts on the Coachella bill outside of it's Empire Polo Field gates. As round two of the festival creeps up on us however, don't expect the party scene to be as grandiose as it was last weekend. Most of the lavish (and celeb-filled) soirees such as the Lacoste or Vestal Village only pop up on weekend one. Here's what we saw in the Palm Springs heat over the past weekend to give you a better idea of the Coachella party scene and maybe help you better plan your pilgrimage to the desert next year.
