As Hanna notes, many festival-goers double or triple-up on outfits on the first weekend of Coachella so that they can post pictures during the second weekend without attending. For Coachella 2019, Hanna took things to the next level. The deception included regular IG stories, a graphic designer who Photoshopped her images, regular outfit changes and a lot of wigs.

While she achieved her goal, it wasn't without a huge amount of effort. She reveals that pulling off the deception required more energy, stress and time than her week-long trip to India.
