    Coachella launches this weekend and it's in the Southern California desert. You don't need a doctorate or advanced degree to know that means it's going to be really hot while you rock out. You need to pack some essentials in your knapsack, your fanny pack, your crossbody, your backpack or whatever it is you tote with you.

    You have to keep the load light, yes, but you can't skip out on these items. These are five essential items you must bring with you to Coachella and while some are obvious no-brainers, they are so simple that they are EASY to forget.

    But we can promise that you'll be regretting it if you forget or don't pack any of these items.

    Please note we left water off this list because DUH! Of course you have to hydrate on site, so bring extra money so you can pour water down your gullet continually and never get dehydrated and pass out or get sick!

    Sunblock:


    Bring a tube of SPF 50 or higher sunblock so you can apply liberally. And reapply. Protect that neck, that face, that epidermis. Skin cancer is no joke, and it may not be at the top of your mind, so we're here to put it there, since it's important. It's easy to just bring some sunblock to slather on, so don't skip it.

    Earplugs:


    It's going to get very loud and you want to keep your hearing as protected as possible with a few pairs of earplugs. Whether it's a cheap drugstore pair or a pro pair you laid out some bucks for, make sure you bring earplugs. Stock up on two or three extra pairs if you can. At Coachella, look for DUBS, a new brand of ear protection.
