We were wrong.
The Brazilian flip-flop brand has designed a limited-edition style that will be stocked in the hotel's minibars for guests in town for the three-day rock fest.
"Ace Hotel & Swim Club Palm Springs is the quintessential spring destination," James Anstey, Director of Marketing at Havaianas, says in a press release.
"To celebrate, we've created an exclusive product that brings a touch of Brazil to the desert."
And what does a "touch of Brazil" look like? The unisex flip-flop ($22 a pair) boasts a simple but chic style with a white base and black straps, inspired by the brand's original design, plus a coyote pin representing the hotel's mascot.
Fifty limited-edition Ace Hotel flip-flops will be sold online at Us.Havaianas.com to give non-guests a shot at getting in on the action.
We can't think of a better way to beat the scorching desert heat while giving your feet some much-needed comfort as you wait 20 minutes to use a Porta-Potty.
Just one warning: Flip-flops + mosh pits = bad idea.
