Stay in a hotel if you're not into the heat. Try to not stay in Palm Springs if you can help it; it's a long drive at the end of the night.

Just camp.
To be honest, the heat is brutal in the morning.
But I couldnt imagine going to Coachella and NOT camping.

i went from the uk this year and the heat is a killer but still camping next year, takes the hastle out of it, there is cold showers and when you get in the arena you kind of forget about it i would advise getting vip tho shade, proper bar and the misters. buy a cooler some where aswell, and im thinking about getting some of that space foil stuff for the side of the tent in the morning to try to keep the heat out of the tent in the morning for that little bit longer, rent a car aswell with gps the busses suck in the usa, see you there next year.
ps coachella is alot better than any uk festival i've been to (leeds titp rockness )

I stayed in PGA west, we walked to monroe st from the site and then got a taxi which was nothing when it was shared pretty much.

I'm from england and the heat was a little crazy..

I'd recommend hotelling it.. I am next year..

I've hired a villa last 2 years running, and will do the same again in 08. As it sleeps 8 (with room for plenty more on the floor - we ended up with quite a few more than that last year) it only worked out to 125 each for 5 nights (we stayed a day either side of the festival too). The drive is about 15 mins to the festival site (although allow another 30 mins once you reach it)

Was it 10,000? I heard from someone it was close to 20,000. But now that I think about.... 10,000 is probably closer to correct.

No I dont know. I was merely just using a number for the effect of it. I think was 16,000 tho.
