Although each year brings on some guarantees, there are some slightly different variables each year that play into the weekend equation. Keep scrolling for everything we expect to happen at Coachella 2017!

Art Installations = The Only Shade In Sight

You'll be able to get a much-needed break from the desert rays with the handy dandy art installations that pepper the festival grounds. Sure, go ahead and pretend like you're just taking a cute Insta pic, but we all know that you want a break from the direct sunlight.

 

You'll Snap a Photo With the Balloon Chain

You know you're in the right place when the Balloon Chain is around. Everyone loves the chance to grab onto a balloon an snap a photo. Even though it's just a balloon… not all balloons are attached to strings that stretch thousands of feet!

You'll Run Into Multiple Insta-Famous People

If you find yourself thinking, "I know that person, but how?" then it's probably someone you follow on Instagram. Celebs of all kinds walk the grounds of Coachella, and you're more than likely to run into your fair share of Insta-famous people, whether they're makeup artists, models or just plain talented at photographing delicious food.

 

The Food Selection Will Be Super Delicious… and Super $$$

If the mouthwatering display of food trucks from last year is any hint of what we can expect this year, come hungry. Food just tastes so much better after you've been dancing to your fave artists for hours. The one hold up? These booths are pricey.

Artist Obscura Will Have the Most Gram-Worthy Installation

Back in 2014, artist Obscura brought the 'gram game with the installation, #Lightweaver. We predict that their large-scale project will be just as flashy and colorful. We also predict these art pics will be paired with the hashtag, #nofilter.

You'll Definitely See These Celebs (or at Least Know They're in the Vicinity)

Certain celebs are some of the most dedicated Coachella fans. Due to their annual presence, you're most likely to catch a glimpse of Vanessa Hudgens, Emma Roberts, Katy Perry and Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

Temporary Tattoos Will Have a New Look

While we all love flash tattoos for their metallic shimmer, we predict that Milk Makeup's temporary tattoo stamp will be the biggest form of body art at this year's festival. These tats are the perfect accessory to add to your tiny backpack while you jam all weekend long.

 

Hans Zimmer Will Put You In a Movie Marathon Mood

The lineup this year chock-full of amazing artists, from headliners Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar, to Lorde and Grace Mitchell. But we're also super excited to hear the musical stylings of Hans Zimmer. Can't quite place this artist? That's because he's a composer known for writing the scores to many of your favorite films. Watching this set will doubtlessly put you in the mood for a movie marathon with Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King and The Dark Knight on the list.

 

Beyonce Will Make an Appearance During "Telephone"

We all know that Bey's doctor didn't sign off on her permission slip to perform at Coachella because twins, but we have our fingers and toes crossed that she'll step on stage to accompany Lady Gaga during their song, "Telephone."

 

For our final prediction, we bet you have at least one flower crown packed in your weekend bag. Check out THESE adorable animals wearing flower crowns channeling total Coachella vibes.
