If Coachella isn’t a utopian Gen Z fantasy we don’t know what is.
Taking a look at how most never get to see it YouTuber Charlie Chang went to the iconic music festival to interview a bunch of guests staying at the Safari Campgrounds which he described as the most exclusive experience offered at the festival.
In the video Charlie interviews a bunch of VIPs about how they managed to get the exclusive tix and how Gen Zs might one day get a piece of the action.
And just to be clear – when we say exclusive, we mean it.
We’re talking $9,000 for a basic tent, and a luxurious ‘yurt’ costs up to $33-40,000 for a four-night stay.

Naturally, Chang was curious about how the Safari Campground’s guests were managing to afford the insanely priced tickets.
He was specifically interested to hear what they did for a living and also what kind of life advice they had for others.
Their answers were revealing of the modern tech-driven economy young people are finding success in today and provide a snapshot of how the world of work is changing this decade.
We pulled a few pretty solid words of wisdom for Gen Zs on how to make the most of the modern economy.
For example, Grace started her own successful make-up business in Calgary and had some simple, yet effective words of advice for Gen Zs.
“Whatever it is you wanna do… just go out there and do it. You only have one life. Why not do what you wanna do?”
And if she could have received any advice when she started out as an entrepreneur?
“That I can do anything if I put my mind to it.”
Meanwhile, 28-year-old Niraj’s pretty inspirational rise from indulging in his gaming hobby in London to running Minecraft’s gaming studio in LA (right?!) is a testament to creating a career from your passions.
And his advice was pretty simple.
“Do what you love! Honestly, I did what I really liked. I played games (and made a career out of it).”
And finally, at 30 years old Ethan was asked what he’d tell his 20-year-old self and he said: “Stop worrying. Worrying is such a waste of time.”
And his final advice to young people now?
“You’re valuable. Act like it.”
