We’re like, so enlightened right now

There was a time when music festivals were all about being sweaty, smelly and caked in mud. You could abandon the make-up for a weekend, survive off baby wipes and some lip balm and dance around in your wellies to all your favourite bands.

Then celebs got in on the action – the types who before wouldn’t have been caught dead within an acre of a portaloo, or pitching a tent. But hey, when there’s social media and VIP areas, it's a pretty different ballgame.

And with the influx of celebs, came a batch of clichés that we see popping up every time it's festival season. And for some reason, Coachella is the cliché leader.

Here are some of our favourites...

Flower garlands, flower garlands... and more flower garlands

Oh my god! You’re such a hippy! Or in the Manson family!

Fake DJ sets

We don't think Calvin Harris needs to watch his back *just yet*

They’re part of the uniform. Bonjour wedgies.

New hair, don’t care

Because going to Coachella makes you edgy and brave.

I’m so enlightened, man

Yeah man, hanging out in the VIP area with all the free booze and beautiful people will make you feel extra in tune with all your chakras.

Oh, would you look at how pretty we are

Unless your festival selfie looks like messy-haired, dirty-fingernailed, sunburnt filth, we don’t believe you were there.
