Solved! Here's Why Vanessa Hudgens Had to Skip Coachella

You can take the girl out of Coachella, but you can't take Coachella out of the girl! Vanessa Hudgens, who has triumphantly attended the music festival every year since 2011, sadly had to skip this year's event due to work responsibilities. The former Disney star is currently starring in the Broadway production of Gigi, and since the play just opened last Wednesday, it wouldn't have been very professional of her to skip out in favor of a music festival. Vanessa took to social media to announce that she wouldn't be attending Coachella but shared tons of tips for "keeping her spirit alive" on her personal blog. And even though she had to miss out on the fun, Vanessa stayed in the Coachella state of mind while in her Gigi dressing room over the weekend. She shared a series of Instagram videos as she streamed some of the performances and showed off her dance moves to bands like Tame Impala and Milky Chance. Keep reading to see how Vanessa made the most of her "No-chella" weekend, then check out all the stars who did make it to the desert.
