8 surprising things you can not take to Coachella

AEROSOL Suncream and deodorant – no aerosol bottles so make sure that you take the liquid / roll on versions

Chairs or coolers – keep them where you are living

Chains or chain wallets – keep an eye on your jewelry and your wallet if you wear these

Drones – they have been big this year but they can be dangerous so just don’t bring them or they will be confiscated.

Flags – also surprising but makes sense
