Similarly to how organizers of the sold-out extravaganza are able to place a ban on hula hoops, air horns, selfie sticks and other things that are perfectly legal, concert promoters Goldenvoice have chose to adopt an anti-marijuana policy.

As of the first day of the new year (Jan. 1), anyone over the age of 21 in California is legally allowed to smoke weed on private properties, as well as at licensed businesses - an expansion of the previously legalized medical marijuana in the state.

"Sorry bro. Marijuana or marijuana products aren't allowed inside the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival".

Nope. Organizers behind the festival aren't changing their festival rules.

"The promoter has a standing right to the property, and they can determine what can and cannot be brought onto the premises", he said.

It is also worth noting that while most cities and counties in California are 420 friendly, Indio, CA is also not allowing selling, cultivating, or distributing weed or smoking it freely.

There may be no dispensaries in Indio, but there are in the neighboring towns and savvy Coachella goers will get things started in Cathedral City or Desert Hot Springs.
