· Ace Hotel and Swim Club
The pool area of this hotel will be hopping during the fest. Last year, the nearby Palm Springs hotel provided music fans with booze sno-cones, a pop-up Levi's store, ping pong and, of course, lots of tunes poolside from live bands.
· Riviera Resort and Spa
For more poolside action, take a shuttle from the festival to the Riviera. Music Loves Fashion will have a party each day of the fest alongside the hotel's star-shaped pool. There will be more than 40 DJs performing (including Joel Madden) and some fashion shows. Paris Hilton partied at the '09 Music Loves Fashion shindig, so look for her here again.
If you were lucky enough to snag a spot at one of the now-sold-out campsites, the camping area will for sure be one big party. Although no glass liquor bottles are permitted, a "reasonable amount of beer" is allowed. So bring a case for yourself and mingle with the other music heads. The campgrounds will also host Down & Derby, an old-school roller-skating party. DJs will rock roller-rink hits from the '70s and '80s. Burlesque star Dita Von Teese was spotted around here in '09, and we hope she returns for 2010.
