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?
(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
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)
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?
