Glow on, ladies!

True, the unofficial queen of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Vanessa Hudgens, won't be heading to the annual hippie-fab affair this year. (She's too busy being a leading lady in Gigi on Broadway, of course!) But that doesn't mean she's leaving her boho style-loving fans hanging.

The former Disney star, 26, took to Tumblr to share her tips for making the most of the outdoor wonderland, and it's all about soaking up the vibes.

"Even though dressing up is fun, Coachella is about making new memories while listening to good live music,” the raven-haired beauty wrote. "At some point, take your shoes off. Feel the grass under your feet. The music coursing thru your body. The sun on your face. Have so much fun love bugs!"

But then, Austin Butler's love (who previously dated Zac Efron) added an important note on the must-have accessory for the two-weekend event. "P.S. Bring as many light up things you can find. Glow sticks, rave toys, anything," Hudgens continued. While she admitted that it's "fun [to wave] around glow sticks," the actress pointed out their more practical use, too: "It helps at night so you and your friends can stick together!"
