We love Coachella, loud bands, and getting drunk with celebrities under a hot sun. But it’s not the only way to enjoy April in the California desert. Many festival-goers (like the fans who rave to Jimmy Kimmel over bands that don’t exist) are unaware that directly behind them is a more serious playground in the desert, Joshua Tree.

You get wristbands at Coachella. You get a rope harness in Joshua Tree.
