While this year's Coachella may disappoint with what appears to be a well-worn band lineup, die-hard fans of the 10-plus-year-old music festival will keep returning in droves to Indio, Calif., where it all goes down. Sure, there's the standard roughing-it-for-a-weekend lodging such as campsites and dodgy motels. But if you plan to keep returning—veteran acts and all—perhaps it's high time to make a commitment and plunk some cash down on the sweet, sweet digs that this fair town has to offer. There's less than three months 'til Kings of Leon takes the stage, so act fast.
? Please ignore the horrid—and we mean horrid with a capital "H"—damask wallpaper in the bathroom and focus your attention on the panoramic views, the outdoor BBQ setup, and the fire pit that make this place fit for a whole crew of pumped-up concert-goers. $549K is a small price to pay to be king of the afterparty, but no need to shell out for the additional $40K for the furniture—never mind the aesthetic, it would just get wrecked in the revelry.
? Part of the same development as the first listing, at 2,868 square feet this $569K number is the largest in the community. There's room to house tagalongs if all three bedrooms are full: the master bedroom's capacious walk-in closet offers just the floor to pass out on. And about those interiors: what would self-professed lavish-interiors lover (and repeat Coachella headliner) Kanye West have to say?
? Nothing clears a hazy head quite like a brisk walk through the great outdoors—toss in a small white ball and you've got it made. Set beside a water hole of Indian Springs Golf Course, this three-bed pad, though nondescript at best, comes complete with a pool, patio, and open kitchen that can accommodate entertaining up the wazoo. Ask: $329K.
? As for the best and last: $1.45M is all it takes to gain a 7,651-square-foot gated manse with extravagances such as a "majestic" horse sculpture, two stone lions, a pool, spa, and putting green. Need a moment of peace and quiet, a respite from all that music, perhaps? Not to worry: there's "an extra room for meditation," according to the listing. Let's just hope it comes with an iPod hookup to relive the magic.
