View Full Version : Why hasn't car camping sold out for weekend #1?

1. increased capacity
2. reduction in scalpers

I would be curious if they increased capacity somehow? The experience is quite a bit different if you get a spot close to the entrance.... It makes you much more eager to pop back to your tent for a bit and a beer etc. Some folks had to TREK last year, a long way though dusty fields etc. Since we were close, I could run back to my tent whenever to take merch back, grab beers, or meet friends...and it was a short stroll across uninterrupted grass. In comparison, last year I recall car camping selling out almost instantly....

Wild guesses anyone?

Because you can't buy a car camping pass without a festival pass

I've been wondering about this too. Weekend 2 camping sold out and I would guess the capacity is the same, and clearly Weekend 1 was the preferred weekend during the presale. So maybe the veterans and die-hards buying Weekend 1 during the presale were more likely to stay at a condo or hotel?

I think they bought tickets without camping passes either due to lack of funds or that's all they were worried about. Everyone focused on tickets. So then without tickets, you can't get camping passes and so...

maybe, but anyone who bought Weekend 1 and later wanted to add car camping could do so - it's still being promoted on the website. Maybe there are just a couple hundred camping spots still available and it's statistically irrelevant.

Many weekend 1 tickets were scalped. So all those scalped tickets can buy car camping if the ticket owner/scalper wants to. Not smart to buy car camping tickets because people will use hotel instead...Also only 1 car camping per household so that limits it too...

Also you need to sell car camping with the GA ticket. Weekend 2 = real people Weekend 1 = scalp city.

As any argument regarding different purchasing rules is null because week 2 did sell out. The reason is quite simple. Uppity people who are worried about 'sloppy seconds' and having a snowflake Coachella experience bought week 1 tickets(Even Though Coachella is such a slut it doesn't matter) and uppity people are too uppity to camp!! So week 1 has more uppity hotel people...and week 2 will have more party campers!!! I don't care cause I'm going with a group of people who are all veteran campers...

shit, if that's the case them I'm even happier I'm with weekend 1! If all the "uppity" people got hotels and everyone who failed to buy a ticket and needed to scalp one and therefore couldn't get camping ... that means the only people left are the die hards that planned ahead and bought camping with their passes back in the presale (for the most part). Should be a good group of people!

I'm going to focus on shredding the grass.

Just because these assholes are calling week 1 weak ones

Exactly!!! I think most people are happy with their purchases. I think both weekends are gonna rock! But ya'll got to give your opinions on why you think car camping didn't sell out for week 1 and that is my opinion. Week 1 is full of uppity folk who are too weak to camp, and that's fine some people aren't into it and that is understandable. I personally bought my tickets for weekend 2 along with my 20 camping buddies during the presale because of me and my gf's work/school schedule.

LOL@thinking 'camping' in a parking lot in Indio is actual camping. Are you going BASE jumping off the bumper of your car too?

That's exactly what I said! Oh, troll, Jesus Loves You. I just like to camp for various reasons, it being a genuine camping experience is definitely not one of them.

LOL!! I love how people act like there are no other festivals except for Coachella...there are plenty of festivals held there during the season. Coachella is a skank...my kinda skank.

^ Exactly my point. And when there are no festivals at the Polo Grounds, they are playing Polo on the Polo grounds. Everyone is worried about the puke, vomit, and fluids from the week before when the rest of the year it's a horse's playground...Relax, it will be ok everyone.

While you are waking up in human excrement every morning, I will be at the spa getting a massage.
