My friend and I will be attending Coachella for the first time this year, and are doing car camping. I've gone to other jam band and electro festivals in the past; I've never been too concerned by other sleep-deprived, flowing festival goers because I've always gone with guys. Ladies (and concerned gentleman), how safe is the scene for two girls camping alone?

Many thanks.

Just don't get caught alone with a parking attendant and you'll be cool.

Only the parking attendants that look like rapists

if you're still worried check the camping/lodging board and make some friends to arrange to camp next to them.

Hello!
Camping is as safe as you make it! just be sure to keep all your valuables in your car just in case.

I was 1 of 3 girls solo in a camp spot last year. Yes there can be dodgy people, and make sure you keep your valuables locked in the car, but other than that, we made friends with our camp neightbors and we were all good. I felt totally safe sleeping and whatnot. Just be aware of your surroundings and your stuff and you'll be fine.

What everyone said- the biggest risk is getting stuff stolen, which can happen to anyone. As far as getting attacked, nothing will happen.

I always go over where some one would take you to rape or attack you. Every where you go there are tons of people.. seems unlikely to find a quiet area where if you yelled "help Im being attacked" that someone wouldn't hear you. I wonder around alone and I feel very safe.

yes, you are going to get raped and pounded multiple times. And rapists will inform more rapists and you'll never hear music. Bring a pillow.

Obviously there are a bunch of haters on here that do not know what it feels like to have a vagina to protect. I've beent to coachella many times and once with just my sister and we didn't feel unsafe. I would just say use your common sense as you would while visiting any new place: keep track of your belongings, don't drink stuff strangers give you, don't get too drunk( this is bad for fun factor as well as the safety factor) I would just say stay in well-populated areas, don't follow strangers to their 'party house' or any of that mess because I've heard some stories of getting stuck at a creepy sausage fest afterparty...also don't tell dudes your camping alone that much is obvious though... have fun!! I'm sure you girls will be fine, another good tip is to simply befriend your neighbors because last year someone tried to steal our stove which we had stowed away but my neighbors luckily were there and stopped the dudes, I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact that I had befriended them with edibles.

Don't even worry about it. The only thing you will need to consider is being responsible for yourself meaning don't over indulge in drugs/alcohol to the point that you are no longer able to care for yourself. Otherwise you are safe at Coachella. Meet your neighbors as others here have posted...you will be fine:-)

Hey, I'm a 23 year old girl, and this is my first coachella, and I'm planning on camping alone. It would be nice to maybe meet up with or camp next to people who are in the same boat as me. Let me know if you guys want one more girl in your group who is just trying to stay safe and have a good time! :)

do you have a camping spot? we have a fairly large group with a lot of girls (and some guys too) spread across 6-8 spots. I'm a bit older, but the other girls are mostly 20 somethings. PM me if you're interested :)

I'm a girl and I've camped at a few coachellas, I've never felt unsafe. Granted I was with a mixed group, but even without men, I would feel fine. Like some one else said, just use your normal common sense and don't get so wasted to where you can't take care of yourself, and you'll be good. =) You're always surrounded by a ton of people, usually ones just going about their own business anyway and having a good time.

My wife has camped solo before. No problems. I've been to 10 years of Coachella, and the attendees are all really cool and laid back. It's one of the best parts.
