The Coachella valley was bustling the last two weekends with the official start of festival season, and LA Weekly and the social app Geojam brought the heat, lighting up the desert with parties that kept guests grooving, the drinks flowing and the vibes pulsing — all weekend long.

The parties were hosted by world-renowned skater Nyjah Huston, who manned the DJ table, along with special musical guests DJ Pee .Wee (Anderson .Paak), Autograf, Greg Gatsby and AMÉMÉ, keeping attendees dancing til the break of dawn. (Huston is an investor in Geojam and LA Weekly.)
