Coachella starts this weekend! It is one the most fun (and certainly the most celeb-packed) music festivals of the year, but it's also $350 for a weekend pass and is located in the desert. So.

But don't give up so fast. It's totally easy to feel like you're at Coachella without boarding a flight. Give these five tips a try and be sure to send us a mental postcard from Indio, CA.

Photos: The Must-Have Accessories to Nail Your Festival Look.

1. Watch on YouTube.

You can stream the festival live on You won't have to miss a minute of those performances!

2. Turn it up.

Feel like you're there by opening the windows (finally!) and blasting some of the featured artists of the festival, like the Lumineers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (who have a new album out next week).

3. Wear some flowers in your hair.

You can pull it off, too, flower child! Let V. Hudge be your festival spirit guide.

4. Follow Coachella-loving celebs on Instagram.

Emma Roberts (@emmaroberts6), Beyonce, (@beyonce), Nina Dobrev (@ninadobrev), Lauren Conrad (@laurenconrad), and of course Vanessa Hudgens (@vanessahudgens) are just a few of the celebs that wil surely be posting blissed-out pics very soon!

5. Relive last year's greatest moment.

Two words: Tupac hologram.
