Ok, i know that there are certain positives to not letting people enter and leave the event grounds multiple times during the day. That being said, i think it sucks! Last year i didn't do well with the heat (I'm from Canada) and just couldn't take being inside the event ALL day. I chose to stay on the camp ground for the first part of the day where i could stay cool much easier. Because of this i missed a few bands that i wanted to see that had early set times. I'm just complaining here, but does anyone agree that allowing in/out from the vent to the campground would be soooo sweet?! or am i alone? And why is it too dangerous/inconvenient to staff/whatever to allow In/Out?

The city of Indio will not allow it, it's not Coachella's choice, they're not happy about it either. Thanks.

Do you know what logic they throw behind that?

The campgrounds are argueably hotter than the festival grounds.

Ya it seems weird that the city would regulate on something like that. And I agree that the campgrounds are waaay hotter, at least you have some shady spots inside

Not really. Indio's relationship with Coach is pretty touchy in general, that town is mostly old people who couldn't care less for an indie music festival. Somehow they relate in/out privileges to increase likelihood of drug use or some other kind of danger I think.

Interesting... Still a down side of the festival though. If Coachella ever moves venues/towns, i vote for in/out! :)

As for the 'it's hotter in the campground anyway' thing. I'm pretty sure it's probably exactly the same temp in each part of the field... At least at yer camp site you have your 'comforts' whether it be a cooler full of cold drinks, or a nice chair with shade... just sayin'. I found it hard to find a good place to sit and chill in the shade once inside the event gates.

Good reason to check out bands playing in the tents. :)

There are places to cool off in the fest. Misters, cold drinks, shade tents, etc. Grow up & take the heat like a man.

As much as I would love for Coachella to have in/out privileges it never will happen. I've NEVER been to any venues, let alone festivals that allow in/out.. They want to make money off people drinking their expensive booze and if they allowed in/out, ppl could just go to their car or a nearby bar to get booze for a little cheaper..

i totally agree and this really sucks..but i dont think theyll ever change it, at least as long as its in indio. i would suggest doing bonnaroo if you prefer to go back to the campground. but yeah, as awesome as coach is, this is the worst part of the show.

I'm from Canada and you don't hear me complaining about the heat.

I'll go to In and Out Burger on the the way to the event.
That's good enough for me.

I agree 100%. My least favorite thing about camping is sitting outside my tent from 6:00 am until I decide to enter the festival (around 2 or 3). Once inside, you have shade in the food areas, shade in the beer prisons, and, oh yeah, three very large shaded areas that have kick ass music playing in them.

That said, in-and-outs should be permitted.

Go to Stagecoach if you want ins and outs to the campground ok?

I thought this was about in/out being a new food vendor.
