Beating the Coachella Crud

Veterans of the Coachella music festival have come up with a few tips over the years to help protect attendees from the variety of illnesses dubbed the Coachella Crud:

  • Wear a bandana to cover your nose and mouth as you walk through the dusty field, especially when it's windy.
  • Take allergy medicine.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Take Emergen-C, Airborne or any variation of multi-vitamins to help bolster your immune system.
  • Shower every night after Coachella to get the dirt off.
  • Get some actual sleep while at Coachella.
  • Get even more sleep after you get back from Coachella.
  • Try using a Neti Pot or saline nasal sprays for your nose.
  • Take an extra day off work or school if you can to recover.
  • For the Coachella Comedown, blast your favorite Coachella tunes to re-live the best moments of the festival as you readjust to the daily grind of life.
