So, ill be arriving in CAlifornia on thursday morning....at some point in the afternoon, we'll probably go to check into the campsite......

are the festival grounds open?
and what goes on there?

can you get alchohol wrist bands on thursday to avoid lines on friday?

if you need to buy beer tickets and food tickets,
can you buy them on thursday?


thanks

they have a bar in the camping area, so i assume you can get a wristband to drink there that will also be good for the show.

venue isn't open until show day.

all food, etc. is cash only once at the show, not sure about the campground, though. no food tickets.

Festival grounds are not open on Thursday.

You can certainly get your beer garden bracelet on Thursday in the campgrounds, and I would definitely recommend it.

Thursday night at the campground is my favorite camping night.

Thursday will be driving to Indio from LA, meeting up with my buddy, setting up camp, getting a few beers, going to Las Casuelas and getting some rest before the 3days begin.

Yeah, no offense to Indio but I'm not gonna be staying there any longer than I have to. I'll hang out in Palm Springs, go to the the Village Fest Thursday evening, then travel up the valley through Rancho Mirage/Palm Desert/La Quinta

Keep in mind,
The local cops are out in numbers during the festival.
Everywhere you turn you'll likely run into them.
That said, they are specifically looking for people who might be having too good of a time while behind the wheel.
Do what you will, but remember they will be writing as many DUI tickets as they can.

Last year, I went to some theater in Palm Desert and watched two movies in a row. Hot Fuzz and Aqua Teen Hunger Force, I think. I figured it was cheaper than going out drinking, and I'd feel better on Friday.

I wasn't camping, though.

Is this the line to get the beer, or is this the line to get the tickets to get the beer?

Hell yeah. Only problem is it takes about an hour to get the food if you go after the show.

Go see a movie, I'm pretty sure there is a theatre relatively close by.

In 06, I went to see 'United 93' at a theatre near the polo fields (eg, about two miles away). I'm not sure it was the right choice.

I'm setting up camp in the afternoon then heading into LA to see Caribou at the El Ray and then driving back that night to the campground. Gonna be a lot of driving.

Village Fest

This confused the hell out of us last year when we tried to go into Palm Springs. Eventually we ended up at a bar with the weirdest cover band and crowd of all time.
