Amazon has provided a solution for those Coachella festival-goers who may have forgotten essentials like sunscreen, hats or sunglasses, according to the retail giant.

For the first time ever, Amazon will have lockers available at Coachella for delivery. People can order items to be shipped directly to the lockers, either in advance or on the day of the festival.

Amazon’s lockers are self-service kiosks that are geared for convenience, the company said. Regular locker customers who use the service have three calendar days to pick up a package.

Amazon will also have a curated online Coachella store, where people can buy items that are specifically inspired by the festival, such as phone chargers, lip balm and portable fans.

“We want customers to make the most out of their weekend at Coachella,” said Patrick Supanc, Amazon’s worldwide director of lockers and pickup. “Bringing the convenience of Amazon Lockers to Coachella will help customers focus on their experience instead of worrying about forgetting something at home or having to carry it in with them.”

Amazon said the process will be effortless and secure. During checkout, customers will select an Amazon locker as a shipping address. When the package is ready, they will get an email notification and a barcode to use for pickup. The lockers will be located at a designated space, and team members from Amazon will be available to answer any questions or concerns.

Right now, Amazon lockers are in upwards of 900 towns and cities across the United States, and are available at no cost.

Coachella will be spread out over two weekends: April 12-14 and April 19-21. Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande are the headlining acts at the festival. Other acts include Solange, Weezer, Pusha T, Diplo and The 1975.
