Can You Bring Vapes to Coachella?

First off, let’s deal with the million dollar question: Can you bring vapes to Coachella? The answer is yes and no. On the Coachella website you can find that under the “Health and Safety, Rules” section is listed the items that are allowed into the venue. In the list of items that are allowed in, we can find the following:

  •  YES E-Cigs and Vape Pens 
    • No AVPs, Mods or Liquid Refills for Vapes

As you can see, bringing Vapes into Coachella is allowed but they have to be specific types of vapes. Vape pens and e-cigs are allowed into the venue, but advanced personal vapes (APVs), box mods, and liquid refills (what we assume must be bottles of e-liquid) are prohibited. Since vape pens and e-cigs might be harder to find due to being out of fashion, we suggest you rely on pod systems and disposables since these will be perfect for Coachella and should be allowed in since most look similar to vape pens and e-cigs. 

We also say that ultimately what you can and can’t bring inside will be decided by security since they have the final say on what you can get inside and this can vary from person to person. 

Choose Between Disposables or Pod Systems

As stated earlier in this blog, vapes can be brought into Coachella but only vape pens and e-cigs. If you happen to have an older vape pen then you’re in luck, however, vape pens and e-cigs that are similar in shape to writing pens are harder to find, so we suggest that you are better off using pod systems and disposables. Which brings us to the next question: which one is better? 

Pod systems are better as a long term investment since they tend to be better quality and should last for years. They might also be easier to carry since they tend to be smaller. However, there is one thing that might cause a problem and that is that pod systems require that you bring a separate nicotine salts vape juice bottle so the vape can last you for at least a weekend. And as we read previously on the Coachella website, no liquid refills are allowed. Depending on how much e-liquid your pod system can hold, you might not need to bring a nicotine salt bottle but for pod systems that don’t hold enough e-liquid or nicotine salts, this could be a problem. 

Disposables, on the other hand, were made to be had over a weekend and many models nowadays hold plenty of e-liquid and have massive puff counts that will last for weeks. Some of the latest disposable models can also be recharged which means you can enjoy the whole weekend without fear of the battery dying. 

Our advice for what vape to bring to the Coachella music festival? Buy a disposable, that way if you bring it and can’t get it past security, you won’t be losing an expensive device, and since most disposables look more like e-cigs and vape pens, it’s more likely that the disposables have a higher chance of making it inside the festival. Still, whether you want to bring a pod system or a disposable is up to you, but we believe these two are the best options. 

Remember Vape Etiquette

Just because Coachella is outdoors and you can vape technically anywhere does not mean that you should throw caution, or vapor, to the wind. You should still be conscientious of where you vape and exhale. If you are going to vape, remember to avoid big crowds and exhaling vapor in someone’s face, and if you are inside someone’s tent get permission first before using your vape.  

If you find yourself in the front row surrounded by people and want to take a hit of your vape, we recommend stealth vaping. In our blog, Tips To Vape When Going To A Concert we go over exactly how to pull this off. 

In essence, you’ll want to exhale into your shirt so the vapor dissipates and goes directly to the floor. There’s more to this technique, so make sure to check out the blog above to learn exactly how to pull this off. 

Bring Along a Power Bank

Whether you bring a pod system or disposables to Coachella, something that is a must-have is a power bank. With a power bank you’ll be able to not only charge your phone but also your device. Whether it’s a pod system or a rechargeable disposable, chances are that if you are staying the whole weekend you’ll need to charge your devices. With a power bank you won’t have to stand in line in the charging stations; you can simply plug in your devices and let them charge before your favorite artist takes the stage.
