Festival schmestival. The party scene that's emerged and evolved around the Coachella Music Fest has gotten nearly as huge and musically plentiful as the main event. This year, our Weekend 1 RSVP list consisted of no less than a dozen big-branded DJ-driven, swag-soaked soirees.

Did we make it to all of them? Of course not. But after hitting up about half, it was clear we'd seen all we needed to, at least when it came to the party peep heap. Indeed, Coachella parties always seem to have "types" you start to run into again and again, so much so that we often have to ask the scenesters we snap and rap with, "Did I meet you earlier?"

Here the Top 10 Types we got toasted with under the Palm Springs sun this weekend (at the Revolver/Dub Frequency/Club Called Rhonda Party at the Ace Hotel, the Armani Exchange Neon Carnival, Jeremy Scott's Adidas Party at the Frank Sinatra House, the Guess Party at the Viceroy and the Hard Rock Lounge at Zoso Hotel).
