Coachella's star-studded, multi-day lineup is its raison d’etre, but there are plenty of other things to enjoy at the fest, like these art-filled escapes. Ranging from sound baths, cozy recording rooms, and scavenger hunts, there is plenty to do and see while in the desert.
Chill in a geomagnetic sound bath
About an hour north of the Coachella Valley is the otherworldly Integratron, a dome-topped structure built in the 1950s by a UFO enthusiast who intended for it to house a time travel machine. The space’s location and design make it a geomagnetic and acoustic wonder -- and a favorite of acts like Moby and Arcade Fire, who have played there. The site’s primary attraction, however, is its sound baths (from $30 per person; $250-$900 for a private session), and visitors lucky enough to secure an appointment can enjoy an hour of recorded music and healing sounds. integratron.com
