This is my 5th year at Coachella and I'm finally making it down Thursday before the show. I really want to go to the Filter pre party..can anyone give me some advise on how to get an invite?

Thanks.

i've managed to go every year for the past 4 years or so.

it used to be a free for all. Sign up online, you would get there early and would be allowed in. The place was packed.

Last year, it was lottery system only. I won, had no problems getting my 6 friends inside. Similar to past years (free booze, Djs, other stuff) but considerably less crowded.

No word yet on this year. Keep checking this message board or Filter magazine online to see where to sign up. Sure there will be more info coming shortly.

it's really really fun, if you can get in I really recommend it

I'm not sure it was a lottery system last year because every person in my group received an invite. But you had an unlimited number of guests you could bring per rsvp so it didn't matter.

Thank you for the heads up...if anyone has anymore info. Or wants to give me the location when they find out email me at ellasride@gmail.com

I can't get Coachella off my brain.

the Filter LA newsletter should send out an invite through email... pretty sure of that at least.

But the problem I'm still trying to figure out for this year, is how are you gonna get to the Casino for the shuttle if you're onsite car camping? Once you've checked into car camping we can't take our cars out. We can't leave... well... we can, but we can't get back in after. Once you're out, you're out.

That's why I'm still holding out some hope that a separate parking lot will be found so we don't have to car camp if we don't want to (for the people driving to the camp site that is). I wanna be able to leave camp periodically if I want to...

that's a good point actually. Hopefully Coachella will start shuttling people directly from the campgrounds to the party (as they should have been doing all along)

i really hope there is another parking lot as well. My group will be about 10 people and while we are cool with car camping we all like to leave the campgrounds for a few hours in the morning/early aternoon

Yeah it was. My man and I squeezed a bunch of Australians in my car. We won a close parking space to and of course free stuff when we got there.

Free stuff, especially booze, would be nice. But I'll be at She & Him at the Glasshouse or whatever is at the El Rey (Gorillaz?)

I doubt the Coachella people would ever do that. Because I get the feeling Filter Mag does this completely separate/independent of Goldenvoice/Coachella. Like GV doesn't have any part in running/organizing/paying for this party. But yes... it would be a very nice gesture if they did.

But yes... let's hold out hope they do open up a separate lot. Since they haven't figured that out by now, I unfortunately doubt they will.

Any news yet? Anyone remember how far in advance they send out the invite? Or should we assume since we haven't heard anything by now it's dead?

I love my black shirt with orange coachella valley map print from 08. And those Bass! And the breakdancing! That husky Mexican could dance. Wasn't there a sampler cd with Portishead?

I just looked at my emails from last year and I got a confirmation email from Filter on Wed 4/15/09, just a day before the actual party.

And I remember emailing them about a week and a half originally. So that would mean the first week of April we should hear something.

This is the same place as years past right? You got inside info, or did you get an email? I haven't heard a peep from Filter yet.

It's nobody "huge", but in 08 I remember Cut Copy did a DJ set... maybe VHS or Beta too? If it's like a couple years ago, the booze is free... it's a good time.

whaaaaaaaat? only 25 pairs of tickets? probably BS





It's hard to believe that in just ten days, Coachella's annual party in the desert will be taking over the gorgeous landscape of Indio, California. And you know what that means - we're just nine days away from our annual Coachella kick-off party!

That's right. We've once again teamed up with our pals at Toyota Antics to throw the 7th annual kick-off party on Thursday, 4/15 where everyone who's anyone will gather to toast the festival days to come. We've line up DJ sets by Jokers of the Scene, Micachu & The Shapes, Deluka, Afghan Raiders (We're not DJ's), Kid Color, Hesta Prynn, Kid Lightning vs. Them Jeans, and of course, a super-secret surprise guest who will blow your mind. On top of that, all of our party-loving friends will enjoy a K-Swiss ****-pong classic, live screenprinting by H+R, free haircuts from Rudy's Barbership, live installation art by dethkills, tons of rad giveaways, and of course complimentary drinks courtesty of Mike's Hard Punch.

The best news for you? Because we love our readers so much, we're offering you the chance to win one of 25 pairs of passes we're giving away to this ultra-exclusive party. Just fill out the form below and tell us why you should be invited, and leave the rest to us. Note that if you win, you MUST provide your own transportation to our secret party location in the Coachella area, and you and your guest MUST be 21 years of age or older to gain entrance to the party (sorry, kids).

We'll be contacting winners on Monday, April 12th, so don't waste any time, and enter today!

So are the 25 people who win tickets the VIPs and everyone else has to meet at Spotlight 29 Casino and take a cab there? I find it hard to believe there will only be 50 people at this party. If only the 25 winners and their guests can go.

Anyone else get "selected" for the Filter party? I'm sure they picked more than 25 if I'm among the winners.

That said, I'm still not sure we'll even be rolling out until Friday morning. But free booze, swag and music might make me find a way.

WHY GO THE WHOLE WEEKEND? YOU SHOULD ONLY WANT TO GO ON THURSDAY NIGHT. INSTEAD OF THE DAYTIME POOL PARTIES, PEOPLE SHOULD BE AT COACHELLA ITSELF. Without Coachella, there would be NO POOL parties.
