haha...a picture of yourself in your avatar and a link to your myspace. if coachella webmasters were smart, they would start a list of all the idiots coming on the board who post dumb questions about illegal acts and make sure to search them thoroughly.

i just wanted my questions answered, seems like everyone gets offended when i mention something against the rules, fuckin do-gooders... i still dont know where to camp, damn lake caluilla or whatever is sold out now, not sure if salton sea is a decent place to stay, joshua park is kinda far but one of my friends wants to camp there, who knows, any suggestions???

As the cheerleaders would say: "Be creative! Be, Be Creative!"

PF's idea may work but they might be on the lookout for anybody walking bowlegged due to an Absolut bottle shoved way up in there.

Agreed. Salton Sea. Looks dead. There are some pictures of it somewhere around here...

But you'd be pretty sure that no one would bother you there.

Slap some JD in a couple of big Coke bottles would probably be you're best bet. I think its ridiculous you ain't allowed to bring you're own alcohol onto the site. Feeds the f ucking corporate rip-off merchants that sell it for twice its value at the festival itself. UK festival's win on that count.

Who is sneaking alcohol into the campsites? Umm, pretty much everyone.

Security is pretty lax on the whole alcohol rule. We got ours in with not much of a search at all. They basically opened our ice chest, glanced in, and said "cool". You could essentially put your food and junk on top of the alcohol and they'd probably not even give it a second look.

Just a suggestion, liquor is a lot easier to carry than beer. Also, they have bars inside the campsite so if for some reason you get pinched you can still get saucy. Another hint...Vodka looks a lot like water, and whiskey (preferrably Jameson's) looks a lot like soda.

Thanks for this answer bud.
I've now applied the 40/1 rule to Coachella message boards. 40 ridiculous replies to 1 reasonable response. You win.

We've got a group of Canadians coming down that were wondering about the booz issue. We get scared in America without it.

Maybe I'll go to the field 2 weeks in advance and bury a keg with other various bounty.....then dig it up in a whisky fueled assult.

ps. the comment about them tracking our smuggling/bootlegging plans via the message board was awesome. I think "Conspiracy Theory" needs to be watched a few more times......in a dark room......alone.

hahaha no kidding. yep they're going to track our ip addresses, hunt down our real names, somehow trace those to our tickets, and cross check us against a "no camp list" at the entrance... all because we said some shit on a message board.

Go get a fluid bladder at a camping store or cyclist shop. Their like the bladder of a camelback. Fill it up with yr favorite liquor and slide it down the back of yr pants. Boxer briefs work best for this method. Put a rubber band on each leg of the briefs so it doesn't fall out. Make sure the bladder is flat against yr body. Its worth a shot if yr really looking to sneak some in. You can always walk out to yr car & tailgate though which is what I've done the past few years. Theres always plenty of people partyin in the lot.

Haha yeah, nothing like walking around the campsite with wheelbarrows of beer cruising past every 20 seconds

How strictly are age limits enforced over there? (19 from UK btw) I've been legally drinking for over a year over here, gonna be annoying to be under-age again when i get there >_<

If they catch you sneaking alcohol in do they just confiscate it, or do they kick you out of the campground? Also, do they frisk you upon entry to the campsite?

Q: Why do you always take two Mormons camping?

A: Because if you just take one, he will drink all of your beer.

The silliest thing I have read so far on these forums is "Come find us - just look for the pirate flag." Like there's gonna be just one. There will be at least 2 and probably 50.

On that note, if I can prove I am a pirate, do you think they will allow rum? Maybe in a wooden barrel?

It's funny how uptight some people are! They sell alcohol in the campground area! Who the fuck cares if you bring it in! All the people that don't are the douchebags that baby around others campsites trying to get it for free! They don't search that well! Just poor some jack in some ice tea bottles & throw them in the bottom of your cooler with ice and all your mixers & regular drinks! Also vodka in water bottles works well! I have been to coachella 6 years in a row & have always seen people bring in their own alcohol. I do too! Fuck paying $9 a beer or $12 for a water down cranberry & vodka!

Each sandal holds about 1.5 OZ of liquid, and that's if the plastic flask doesnt break. Which it always does :nono

It's hit or miss, sometimes they'll search everywhere and sometimes you get lucky. I've known people to successfully get away with things with methods that were totally not that discreet, but the odds are against you.
