Thread Starter 
Lineup possibly dropping today so in preparation

Dates:
Weekend 1: April 14-16
Weekend 2: April 21-23


Ticket Cost:
GA $399
GA + 10x30 Camping Car Spot $498
GA + Hotel Shuttle Pass $459
VIP Pass $899

Other Accommodations:
10x15 Personal Camp Site: $99

Nearest Airport:
Palm Springs Airport (22 Miles)
Ontario Airport (92 miles)
LAX (144 miles)

Questions:

I live out of state. How do I get to Coachella?
You have options.

1st option: Fly into Palm Springs ($$$) & have California friends pick you up on the way to their campsite/condo/house/hotel
2nd option: Fly into Palm Springs ($$$) and take a taxi to Coachella. Walk up to your friends campsite and camp with them.

3rd option: Fly into LAX/Ontario & have friends pick you up and take you to their campsite/condo/house hotel
4th Option: Fly into LAX/Ontario & take a train to Coachella. Walk up to your friends campsite and camp with them.

5th Option: If no one you are staying with has a car (I take it they don't live in California) Land at your airport, get a rental car and take it to your hotel or house

If there is anymore please let me know and I'll put it here.

I'm coming solo, what do I do?

Get online and try to join someones campsite or else your best option is a single camp spot but those are small and away from the car camping (aka the party)

How much do hotels cost?
You can always get a deal but be prepared to pay a lot. The 3 closest Motel 6 hotels are already sold out. The nearest one is 19 miles away and is $142 a night so yea. Prices have changed but I remember getting a 3 bedroom condo for $400 a night. And yes most places have a 3 day minimum during that weekend. So I suggest getting your spot (if you're not camping) the same day you get your tickets.

Cut to the chase, what's the best option for out of towners in your opinion?
Depends:

(I have friends who live in California going) Coordinate with them. Have them pick you up from the airport and do whatever they do.
(I have friends who aren't in California going) Land at the same airport, grab a rental car and a camping pass or a hotel/hotel shuttle pass.
(I don't have any friends) Get on the Coachella forums, find people who need room and find rides.
(I don't have any friends and I'm scared of the internet) Land in Palm Springs, get a personal camp spot, get there early Thursday and make friends.

Pros/Cons of Camping vs Hotel/House/Condo

Camping
Pros: You can walk to the festival, the party is always going on, cheaper, don't have to drive intoxicated after the festival, roller derby and Yoga mornings, Constant smokin.gif
Cons: Shower wait, hot *** sun, no comfortable bed, less energy come Sunday, limited food options, can't take your car out to the pre and after parties (must use cab or don't go)

House/Hotel/Condo

Pros: Air Conditioning, Comfy bed (or floor if you're crowding a room), Refrigerator, Easier access to the million pre-parties and after parties going on that weekend, Constant :smoking
Cons: Expensive, Driving after the show, traffic to and from the show

How many people can fit in one car camping spot?
Technically as many people as you want. Ideally,….. 4 people

Any other questions?

Facts. They need to put some respect on his name and make him one of the secondary headliners.

Friday is kind of lackluster to me but Saturday and Sunday have a lot people I'd love to see. But the Hans Zimmer one is really bizarre. What's he gonnna do up there? Is he just gonna conduct a live orchestra? So weird. Are people gonna be screaming "play gladiator", "do dark knight".

Looks like this will be the 2nd year I won't be attending. I'll just go to the localchella shows. I can guarantee Radiohead will play Santa Barbara in between weeks.

Has Spitta ever done Coachella? That'll be the year that I go. Looks like a pretty decent lineup though.

What do y'all think would be best, buy the weekend package and sell the 2 nights I don't really want to go or just hit the resell market for the Saturday night? I'm sure the Saturday slate is going to be the most popular one.

Any tips or advice on a 1st timer like myself? 

 

How much do you guys typically spend on food per day?

Not including the food I eat when camping I'm dropping $15-20 on food $10 on water $10-20 on snacks like frozen lemonade, churros. I rarely drink at Coachella cause I'm on everything else lmao

Yep, and Festival Ticketing support is useless. Called and was put on hold for 2 hours before I gave up. Called again and was told "sorry, we're experiencing high call volumes. please call again at another time."
