Attending Coachella can be a lot like contending for the crown of Westeros: the competition is severe, whether you're attempting to snatch the Iron Throne or score a coveted Artist Pass. So, what better way for us to forecast your typical day on the Indio Polo Grounds than with GIFS from our favorite fantasy melodrama. Enjoy.
