The biggest and best women’s event of the year kicks off on March 29th: Club Skirt’s Dinah Shore! Dubbed as the “largest queer female party and music festival in the world”, The Dinah Shore experience is one you don’t ever want to miss. If you didn’t scoop your tickets in time for this year’s event, you can find everything you need to know for 2018 by visiting thedinah.com. You’ve got time to prep!
For those of you finding yourself traveling to Dinah’s host city of Palm Springs, CA for the first time, we want to make sure you have the best experience possible and get the most out of your time spent with over 20,000+ other LBT queer women and celebs from all across the world! Based on the experiences and advice of past Dinah-goers, we’ve put together a list of things you should definitely take into consideration when arriving at what’s about to be the best weekend of your life.
1) Avoid the nerves!
When we said there will be thousands of LBT and queer women partying it up with you at Dinah, we weren’t joking. That can be pretty intimidating, but don’t let it stop you from enjoying the experience. There are people there from all walks of life and of every shape, size, color, and creed – meet them! Don’t be shy, everyone is there to have a good time, and you should too!
2) Stay hydrated.
Palm Springs is hot hot hot – and that’s not just because of all the babes you’re bound to see when you get there. It’s also because Palm Springs is in the desert, and the stifling weather mixed with pool parties, drinking, dancing, and exhaustion (we’re sure), you’re going to need to stay on top of your water intake! Good for the body, good for the soul.
3) Go with a friend or two.
If it really is your first time going to The Dinah, take someone with you, like ElloSteph did! Or meet up with friends there. That way, when you’re trying to navigate your way around and figure the experience out, you’ll have someone to talk to, hang with, and meet others with.
4) Don’t forget the sunscreen!
Too many times have women at The Dinah suffered through bad tan lines and sunburns because they failed to lather up! Don’t be one of the lobster women- reapply every hour or so, especially if you’ll be getting in the pool!
5) Don’t skip events.
Really. Go to everything The Dinah weekend has to offer – you won’t be disappointed. Each event appeals to everyone, from the film festival to the white party to the comedy show, plus some of the best talent and hottest guest appearances than you’ll get anywhere! Why miss any of it?
6) Try not to go too hard!
The idea of partying all day and all night with tons of beautiful women is super exciting, but if you want to go to everything you’ll need to remind yourself that it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Don’t drink yourself into a midday hangover and become too exhausted to function. Take it easy, and make sure you hydrate between those cocktails!
Long story short, you make your own magic – your experience is going to be however you play it, and we just want to make sure you’ve got your mind ready for the best weekend possible!
