The event took place at Poppy Nightclub and celebs such as Kendall Jenner, Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, Rihanna and more attended the fete. Kylie showed up rocking pink hair just mere months after giving birth to her first daughter, Stormi Webster, with beau Travis Scott. Earlier in the week Kylie called herself, “a cool mom,” ala the hit film, ‘Mean Girls.’ The pop up was held to celebrate her new Kourt X Kylie makeup collection, a collaboration between the new mom and her older sister Kourtney Kardashian. The new mom enjoyed her weekend off from mom duties with her beau, Travis Scott and her bestie Jordyn Woods.

Charli XCX, most widely known for her hit single ‘Boom Clap’ and writing the single “Fancy” for Iggy Azalea took the stage in 90’s denim, obvs Lucky Denim. The performance came mere hours before she was set to perform at Coachella! Fans of XCX have seen her transform from punk-grunge to red carpet glam and 90s fashion! They style revolution is just as impressive as her talent musically. 
The party kept the menu simple almost like a backyard BBQ by offering bites such as hot dogs and light fare such as orange-marinated cauliflower while sipping on Omission Beer and Jack Daniels cocktails. The party definitely made a splash and kept attendees intrigued until closing time!

Pandora once again teamed up with T-Mobile to bring the Pandora Indio Invasion to the desert!
The event created a tropical oasis for attendees! Surrounded by greenery with touches of a variety of pinks set the tone for the retreat style party. The event had tons of photo opportunities and lounge room which truly encapsulated the spirit of the event. The light summer cocktail menu had a few refreshing offerings perfect for the high heats. Guests were able to snack on light bites and desserts while either taking a quick dip in the pool or laying out and basking in the sun! 
As if that wasn’t reason enough to check out this event perhaps the high-energy DJ set by Dillon Francis will change your mind.
