This is a Coachella newbie here, so cut me some slack, but is there any kind of permit you need to be able to camp, and what does it cost? Also, when do you have to stake a claim to get a "good spot," or is it all the same? Finally, what is the campground safe to sleep in or is just completly out of control. Any other info I should know about campgrounds would be great

costs about 40 bucks, you have to be 18 and over, the camping field is split up into sections, when you get there you are told where to pitch your tent by staff, well organised and pretty safe in my opinion. bring a cooler, not that hard to sneek in alcohol just be a bit sly, bring stuff to wash with aswell, showers are good and you won't have to queue for too long if you pick the right time.
http://www.coachella.com/visitors/onsite-camping will tell you all you need to know
get your tickets for the whole thing quickly to avoid dissapointment (something i have learned from uk festivals)

i camped last year. it was hella hot but i got over it because i was having so much fun! bring a canopy to go over your camp ground and a tarp to put on the side of it to block out the sun.

It's not hot. You have to be Canadian [or worse] to think it is hot.

And bring shower supplies. Wash your asses while you're there. Smelly bastards.

Whether or not they care/check probably largely depends on the individuals who happen to be on duty when you arrive. There is off-site camping that is all ages, too.

Shade = your best friend in the campsite.
Be prepared, or try to catch a nap with the thousands crashed out in the blue-room tent.

Blue room tent nap FTW! Loved that place. So nice and cool inside. Nap while you charge your cell phone (if you're camping).

that was a comfy place to chill and take a nap...it took forever for me to have my phone charged, they said that there was a long line ahead of me for the same type of charger...it sucked because it was so comfy, i fell asleep, and missed most of the roots

Does a passport work as identification? I have no driver's license.

You can Bring an easy-up of some sort to go over your tent?
