Coachella Festival Will Draw the Stars – Scarlett? Lea? – to the Desert

The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival kicks off its three-day reign Friday night – and that means one thing: The stars are decamping to the desert, to rock out to an eclectic roster of bands, including Kings of Leon, Grammy-winners Arcade Fire, Kanye West, Duran Duran and others.

The annual festival in Indio, Calif., has drawn out a starry array of music fans, including Lindsay Lohan and Kirsten Dunst, for poolside parties as well as the music. Sources tell PEOPLE that Scarlett Johansson, who performed at Coachella with Jesus and Mary Chain in 2007, is likely to attend this year too, this time with new beau Sean Penn.

Also expected to attend: Glee stars Lea Michele and Darren Criss, as well as a Who’s Who of Young Hollywood, including Zac Efron, Emma Roberts and Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard, who have been there in the past.

With the temperatures in Indio, Calif., reaching the high 90s over the weekend, concertgoers will have to balance comfort with style.

Cougar Town star Busy Philipps Tweeted a photo of her closet, writing, “So, this is the pile of clothes I’m bringing to Coachella. For 3 days. I’m maybe ridiculous.”

And Whitney Port has been Tweeting up a storm in anticipation of the concert. “Obviously not Coachella ready yet! (I look like a Palm Springs lady who lunches),” she wrote Thursday evening. The reality star also Tweeted out a style guide, and wrote a blog post, helping to make “packing for some of you a less stressful experience.”
