As temperatures hit the mid-90s on the final day of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio’s Weekend 1, some music fans hit the pools at local hotels.

While the festival takes place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, many Coachella pre-parties are held at hotel pools throughout the area. Two of the greatest are the promoter of Coachella Annual Goldenvoice Day Club in Palm Springs at the Hilton Palm Springs and desert gold, which takes over the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs. These events offer festival ticket holders a chance to cool off before the big event and give those who didn’t get tickets to the big show the chance to experience some of the action.
