Maybe it can help someone else out
UPDATED
Stuff:
Wristband-MOST IMPORTANT! You cant get within a mile of Coachella without it.
Canopy- Putting it over your tent is very nice! The more private your campsite the better. In my opinion.
Sheets (to hang for shade) or for sleeping.
Clothes-Duh.
Shoes-Duh.
Tent-VERY ESSENTIAL!! place to keep your stuff and sleep.
Tent Fan- it can still get pretty hot in your tent.
Rubber Mallet-To spike down yo Tent!
Mattress pump-Blowing it up with your lungs would really suck.
Folding Table-Have breakfast on it. Play PB. have a smoke sesh around it. What im getting at is.. ITS USEFULL!
Battery for Mattress- Blowing it up with your lungs would really suck.
Blow up Mattress-I use this plus a sleeping bag. Quite comfortable. Had 1 in the tent and one in the car.
Sleeping bag/or sheets-sucks to sleep on the ground.
Pillow-Pillows are greattttt
Hat-If you like to sport em i suggest u bring em! lots of sun!
Bandana- to cover face while taking nap
Phone charger-they have charging stations in the camp site. but car phone chargers are great to!
Phone-Essential. Keep in touch with fellow campers. Pictures and videos.
Ipod-See below
Headphones-if you like to sleep with beats? otherwise dont bring em. There are too many real life greats acts playing
Walkie Talkies- Phone reception is terrible. Walkie talkies is an easy way to keep in touch.
Grill with Propane- Feels great to wake up and make your own breakfast without having to leave your campsite.
Trash Bags-Dont litter at Coachella fool! Well get you.
Lighters- What chu gonna light your cigs;) with?
Your Favorite smoking piece(leave bongs at home)

Tickets
Sunglasses- Alot of sun in your eyes. bring em!
Lots of Cash-Its always good to bring extra. Just dont lose it.
Cooler-Keep all your food items and other stuff cold!
Wallet-Money, ID, Credit Cards. BRING IT
Condoms- Very important. Have fun. be spontanious if you want. But at least be safe;)
Ibuprofen
Benadryl
Aloe Vera-Alot of people get sunburned.
Sharpie-Get some numbers.. Do work! or have it ready for when you meet (Insert your favorite Coachella Artist here)
Bungie Cords- Tie down your stuff in or on your car. As well as a quick fix on makeshift Car camping ideas.
Earplugs- People can be loud in the campsite. Some much more than others. If you want guaranteed sleep then bring these.
Jumper Cables-My car died last year when Coachella was over. Jumper Cables are a must!
Duct Tape- Great on the fly tool for camp ideas!
Towels- Dry yoselfffff off!
Sandals for shower-There is a thread about pooping in the shower....Need i say more?
Flashlight-The night is wild. And you will be inebriated. Not too dark cause of all the movement but itll come in handy.
Foldable Chairs- Sucks always sitting on the ground at your camp ground.
Video Camera- You can relive the awesome after its all finished.
Picture Camera- So when you run into (Insert your favorite Coachella Artist here)
Rope - Very usefull for on the fly Tent ideas.
Tarps- Can give you privacy or can provide shade with your tents.
Backpack: Sucks caring stuff in your hands. Leave it in your tent if its not necessary.
Wet Wipes
Hygiene Stuff
Deodorant-Please use this.
Comb
Mirror
Toothbrush
Toothpaste- Your breath will smell bad after all the substance you may consume;)
Shampoo
Soap- If you even shower. Had to wait in a line for 3 hours one year to take a damn shower!
Face Wash
Sunscreen-Trust me. Youll need it. A Ton Of Sun!
Razor, Shaving Cream
Chap stick

Food and drink is really up to you.
But
Some ideas:
Ice or dry ice. Will last the whole weekend. And ice at Coachella is around $10 for a small bag.
Water- Stay Very Hydrated. It gets very hot in the morning-Afternoon
Boxed wine
Hard Alcohol
Beer
Weed
REDBULL
Apples, Oranges, Grapes
Cup Of Noodles
Chips
Crackers
Trash Bags
Chaser Limes
Salt
silverware
Peanut butter an jelly (NO GLASS JARS)
bread
Napkins- Coachella can get messy
Granola bars
Orange Juice
Coke (the drink) or if your into the other....
Burgers
Buns Ketchup, mustard

well slap my ass & call me a bitch.

i'll be sad to have to remove the rusty hammer that's been a staple in my car for no apparent reason whatsoever before i leave.
& also inconvenienced when i have to temporarily replace my car windows with saran wrap. no glass, guys.

Why bail money??? I'm not selling or dealing. All that stuff is for my personal use. I do it like that every year...for the past 9yrs. I've never even talked to any security guards/staff or the cops. I know how to handle my shit.

Yeah, you just cant be stupid with your stuff like a ton of Coachella goers.
No wonder so many people get arrested each year, its not a good idea to light a joint right next to an undercover lols

you should keep things like deodorant, sunblock, aloe vera gel, facewash, etc in a freezer bag in your cooler.

The fact that you thought of all these in consecutive order creeps me out a little... xP

Just kidding, but yeah you should put your tickets first on the list!!!
And this post really helped in the sense that I was planning on living off PB&J for the weekend, gotta think of something quick!

Last year we took my friend's truck, so I didn't think about this issue, but this year, I'm driving up a second car for a second space, so I thought I would confirm.

In addition to all of the items I keep in my car (tire inflater, flashlight, jumper cables, water, etc.) I keep a set of flares in my car. I never take them out since I'm terrible at remembering to put them back in the car. However, I am kind of assuming these would not get through security at Coachella. Anyone have experience with flares (or similar items) being taken away?

moxie990
01-23-2012, 11:43 AM
you'll be fine ... just don't bust them out during the fest or in the campgrounds. My buddy had a full emergency kit in his truck and security didn't even look in it.

I suppose that if they did find them though that they could end up taking them away since flares could cause a lot of problems in the wrong hands.

dcbell05
01-23-2012, 11:56 AM
They're not worth too much (I think like $5), so I'll probably just bring them and if they take them away, oh well. I bet it all depends on the security guard you get.

from my experience with bonnaroo on the ice, def. come in with your stuff on ice but budget about 10 dollars a day for ice if you can, no point to take up space that could be beer or something better then ice that ll melt anyanys. also if you bring a frisbee that lights up bring extra batteries for it.
