Write this down!

Coachella 2019 kicks off on April 12 and before it arrives, we asked the BuzzFeed Community to spill all their secrets and hacks to share with first-time attendees.

Here's what they had to say:

1. If you're camping on festival grounds, bring warm clothes and lots of blankets.

2. You're going to need a ton of ice.

3. If you walk far enough, you'll find special luxury bathrooms.

4. BUT if you decide to use the Porta Potties, you'll need to bring some tools.

5. Think of hair styles that won't require much hassle or an outlet.

6. Decide on meeting spots beforehand, just in case you and your friends want to split up.

7. Make sure your campsite is secure.

8. Cool off with a lightweight fan.

9. Set alarms.

10. Airplane mode will save you battery time.

11. Beware of dust!

12. Save money and stay hydrated by bringing your own reusable plastic water bottle.

13. Time stamps will become your best friend.

14. Bring extra cash for food or eat before you arrive.

15. When it comes to shoes, think comfort over style.

16. Go easy on the makeup, because the sun might melt it off.

18. Shower timing is crucial.
