If you live in or around southern California, this past weekend there is no avoiding the word “Coachella” in all aspects of your life, filling up your Facebook and Twitter feeds, advertised on Pandora, most likely over half of your friends are there!

So if you’re not there, it’s kind of a lame weekend… unless you decide to throw your own “make your own Coachella party” at home, which is exactly what I did!

Those few friends left hanging around Los Angeles this weekend joined up at my house for food, drinks, music and glow sticks!

Things you will need:

  • Glow sticks, in the form of necklaces, bracelets, whatever you can get your hands on!
  • Music, I think this one is pretty obvious!  I used the “Coachella 2012” station on Pandora, but you can set it to whatever Music Festival theme you’re going for (EX: SXSW, EDC, WMC)!
  • Food and drinks (menu below)

Since traditional music festivals involve camping out, on the menu were “sophisticated substitutes” for traditional camp fire foods including:

Each day this week I will post a recipe from the party so that you’ll be well prepared to throw your own perfect music festival party!  Happy Camping Ya’ll 🙂
