Were you glowing as well? Had an Asian Guy mid 30s wearing khakis ask me in the camp grounds. A middle 30s white Guy also wearing khakis ask inside near the Mojave and a Guy in his 20s ask for drugs. Asked who he saw today (Sunday) and he couldn't come up with anything but black keys. Don't sell drugs kids. Fuck the police. They were out in full force.

yeah my friend was encountered this year in the sahara before borgore...a lady was being followed by 2 guys and she was asking if she could buy any weed...they had on all blue wristbands and were NOT GA or VIP...I whispered in my friends ear that i think they are narcs and i think they caught on to me whispering because all of a sudden they all left...kinda wierd leaving a set right before the artists comes on especially when uve been waiting to see them...sketchy!!!

Damn .. This is going to make things difficult.

I am mid 30's and too chickenshit to bring anything with me on the plane so i can only imagine how difficult it will be just get a little something to chill with for the weekend. I guess I could offer to smoke a little right in front of them as proof. (that even sounds ridiculous in type let alone if I actually said that someone)

They bought presents?!

We were all hanging out at our camp and this lady comes up and goes straight for our black friend asking if he has any "supplies." He saw that she had a backstage wristband and was suspicious. He then goes on to tell her how she needs to be careful cus there are narcs around. After he said that she bolted. She was wearing a dress with a lot of necklaces and he said that she saw one "necklace" that went down a lot further and under her dress.

My friend and I got a spot right next to main street. So you can imagine the kind of traffic we got through. Many people were asking, mostly mid 30's or well over the age of 21. Mostly in khakis and/or shorts. One guy even said, "Well, you have this stuffed animal of garfield on your windshield. That's an invitation of to come buy drugs." We just looked at him and said, "wow, we wouldn't think that would do that." Which I don't believe it does at all. Point is, had stuff, never sold. Way too sketchy this year.

Yeah I saw two guys getting arrested in the Do-Lab this year mid-day. Looked to my right and saw them with their arms behind their backs getting cuffed. Didn't see them smoking at all, so I assumed they sold to a narc and then got busted.

Shit's fucked, totally killed the vibes.

A girl in a blue top and dark pants asked if I had rolls about 10 minutes from the end of AVICII's set... I guess they were persistent through to the end this year.

I've seen kids get busted in the campgrounds in previous years, so I caution people to not sell or give anything to anybody unless you know them personally.

My cousin told this guy in a Hawaiian shirt to fuck off because he wouldn't bum her a cigarette.

Like one minute later that same guy arrested a guy in our campsite for selling drugs (cocaine I believe).

Needless to say my cousin and I got the hell out of there. I was ripped off on edibles so the whole thing was surreal and weird. Also lol Hawaiian shirts.

i think the best other than what i described was in the campsite, my group was smoking, and a black guy comes in to our canopy at 2am saying "damn! what you guys is smokin smells like fire! i'm denzel washington, nice to meet y'all" (clearly it was not denzel). "y'all wanna let me take some of that FIRE off your hands for a good price?" i said "no, but if you chill with us we'll smoke you out". and he said no, and left. narc-chella confirmed.

I had a guy and girl undercover come up to me in the do-lab and stand kinda close to me and say, "I wish we could find some weed."

When they noticed they got my attention, they repeated it towards my direction, "Do you know where we can find some weed?" I shook my head no.

At that point, he bent over and picked up my phone that I was about to walk away from before I noticed it was mine. I approached them and said that's my phone, it was dead and he was in the process of opening it and I leaned forward and grabbed it. He then asked again if I knew where to get 'anything'. I said the camp grounds would be a good place to look, but most people will bring their own drugs.

He pointed to an area in the do-lab and said, "Those guys over there are smoking a joint!" I laughed and said, "Yea, we all have joints, but we don't sell them." and then he said, "Would you sell one to me? I'll give you twenty bucks!"

All the red-flags added up at that point and I noticed he was wearing a shirt that exposed his chest but the girl he was with was wearing a very 'secretarial' outfit with a collar buttoned to the top. I looked beyond them and noticed a bunch of cliche cops staring in my direction. I told the guy that I wouldn't sell him anything and he shouldn't go around asking people that.

He asked one more time, "Please man, twenty bucks for one joint." I said no again and they both walked away. I actually consider myself lucky to have been arrested at Coachella once before. Being that Coachella was hard on my personal finances, I would have accepted the twenty dollar offer and been arrested, making my girlfriend and family wonder where the fuck I would have gone for the rest of that evening.

I don't understand how it is not entrapment to offer twenty dollars for one joint at a festival with overpriced everything. They aren't catching the people who sell drugs, they are catching the 'good guy gregs' who are trying to hook someone up. Fuck the DEA and undercover narcs.

And props to all the cool police who were there just making sure stayed safe... I met some hella cool police; especially the guys on the horses!

I was walking around the campgrounds Saturday afternoon and I saw these two guys walk up to some dudes underneath their awning and ask "do you have any tabs"? I don't know if they were narcs but the whole situation made my skin crawl - just so uncomfortable.

On the other hand, the dude across from my campsite talked about making mad loot from all the pills he sold, so... who knows.

I think that there is nothing wrong, just have to be discreet about it, I'm happy to hear that there is a lot of security, people getting search, parking, entrance, id's, drugs and so on....everybody knows what's going on with whatever is your business, I'm actually surprised that this festival it has lasted for 13 years, I mean for being in the state of california, that has been trying to legalize marijuana for years, and being near the border of mexico.....I'm definitely expecting some kind of security, just relax people ONLY 2 DAYS LEFT!!

The undercover is always followed by 1-2 cops that arrest and take away the perp. Then one cop takes the perp and the undercover and cop #2 go looking again.

I met the guy running security this year and he told me all about the system....he laughed at how easy it was to bust people in the past. They don't care about the users, but they want to get those that come to the fest to sell...and there are a lot that make tons of $$$$.

They busted two chicks from Vegas last year with over 10k in cash that they'd made by 3pm in the first day...and they still had a bunch of bags....

This year...1st weekend roughly 100 arrests.

The wristbands are the giveaway....

They don't care about the users



That's not entirely true. One of my friends was arrested last night by under covers, and he wasn't selling/only had a few pills for personal use. I got asked several times over the weekend by Narcs to sell them drugs. & I know several people (mostly in the campgrounds) who got rolled and all their party favors confiscated, and none of them were selling. I thought we paid a few hundred bucks to not be hassled?! Narc-Chella made this year a fuckin' bust!

i had a lot of people ask me if I had all sorts of drugs. Sunday a guy came up to me at 4:19 and asked if I had any pot, I pulled out a joint and sparked it at 4:20 took a hit and gave him the rest. He took a few hits then took off with it. I was a little bummed he didnt sit with me and smoke it but I gave it to him, he could do whatever he wanted. I was so high on shrooms by that point I didn't care to smoke pot, i just wanted to lay in the shade and trip.

NARC! See that's the thing, it's hard to say who's a NARC. Just because someone is really awkward and asking in a strange way doesn't mean they're a cop. We had 3 people walk into our site and ask if we needed weed. Then I had a guy break off from his friends at the Band of Skulls show and ask me if I had any coke or pills. I certainly wouldn't buy and sell anything, but I didn't really feel like any of them were NARCs.

This 35ish year old narc came right into our campground on Saturday, weekend 1. He asked if we had 'shrooms or molly, but i'm really looking for molly.' As i star\red him down he looked at us and said 'What?? Do i like that weird?' We said no and he left. My only narc experience this year.

Perhaps shit like this wouldn't happen to you people if you didn't all look like bumbling drugged out idiots.

My sis and I were speed walking around the corner of the Merch booth when some guy in khakis asked if we had weed. We quickly said no and kept going. I didn't think about it until later but he could've been a narc. Looked like security... Either way, we were far from bumbling drugged out idiots. Wouldn't think running would set off red flags lol

Another reason I didn't think much of it was I saw one of the security guys by the speakers in the Sahara tent take a hit off someone's joint. So yeah, security didn't seem so strict after that lol

I've read these threads for years, decided to chime in with some info.

First of all, say no to everything, and be nice to everyone. If you do, you'll be safe and fun towards everyone - narcs and real concert goers and everyone in between.

-------

In Sahara a girl aggressively / over friendly hitting on me with 3-5 questions - trying to make them seem relevant to the music - with her friend standing awkwardly eying me, then asking for something, then saying bye and moving on two rows up.

I guess its a price to pay for looking like I am the life of the party.

Saw the same girl stone cold sober 3-4 hours later in the beer garden main stage trying to chat up a friend of mine. He reminded her that she already had hit on me, and then she just peaced out.

Someone else earlier mentioned the Australian stuff and I had a run in with an Australian chic as well.

Where do they find these chics? Are they cops?

It just sucks because I am just wasted off vodka, but am scared that I got people that are actually there to get me. Bad vibes when I am trying to high five people.

If people are to be punished onl yfor their blameworthy acts, then acts that are not blameworthy do not call for punishment.

On the flip side, I heard of one arrest, and that someone that actually was dealing. He made it back to the show Sunday night after his arrest earlier in the weekend.

On the other flip side real security was awesome, respectful, and even fun at times. Saw some dude who lost his wallet and some middle aged security women were helping him find it and saying things like "You came to this festival to have fun, not lose your money." It was kind a nice positive boost to the day.

I was standing with my friend Melissa waiting for her boyfriend and our other friends to come back from the restrooms between the Sahara and Mojavi.

Some fat hispanic looking dude walks up to us and asks "What are you smoking?" and we just look at him like ??? And she flashes him her cigarette, but says nothing. He says "Boy it sure smells good..." so we just look at him like ???????????? and I tell him to fuck off and I turn my back on him, as does her. He continues to stand there behind us, watching her smoke.

When our friends came back, we went into the Mojave for Modeselektor and the guy followed us into the tent. None of us were smoking pot or anything, she didn't even have a clove. It was just a regular cigarette.

Guy creeped us out so we moved to another part of the tent.

I think a decent amount of people here are actually getting paranoid or just ran into somebody legitimately looking for drugs but already were on drugs so obviously appeared sketchy, especially georgeorwell but he writes like he's still on drugs

I didn't run into any narcs really (though I saw a decked out raver girl walking around the car-camp line to get in, then conspicuously talking to cops a little later). I did however, share drugs with many people.

There was this older dude who came up at the end of Death Grips looking for bud, "hey can I give you like 10 bucks for a joint, etc". I just looked him right in the eye, "No I won't sell it to you. But where are you from". He answered Portland, seemed sincere enough, so I let him sit down with our crew and we puffed bowls for like 30 minutes until Wu Lyf came on. Very chill. I was sketched out initially because he was older and definitely could have been a cop but I dunno, I feel like I'm pretty good at reading people. Just ask them a bunch of questions, who are you going to see, where are you from, is this your first chella. A liar will have trouble answering easy questions like that.

I think I saw a group of undercover NARCS on Sat afternoon around the pinball tent in camp. It was a white girl (30s) and black built man (40s), both wearing casual clothes with backpacks, walking from the LOT 10 camp area to the map and stopped like they were meeting someone there (standing in one spot, looking around). The reason I noticed them at first was the fact that the guy was wearing one of those parody T-Shirts which had the Warner Brothers symbol on it but instead said "If you see a cop, Warn A Brotha". Didn't really think they were narcs at that point but I definitely made a mental thought about the shirt itself, how it was an older guy wearing what usually stupid high school kids wear and the fact it was a black 'brotha' wearing the shirt.

Well moments pass after I stopped looking at the two when I noticed them again, this time the girl was driving a golf cart coming somewhere from the dodge ball area and the black man was in the passenger seat, they stopped right where they were once standing. Then there was also 2-3 largely built white guys (40s) waiting in the same spot they girl and guy were previously in that now hopped on the golf cart, dressed in 'cool' douchey style, with backpacks too, as they sped off in the distance.

Seemed really suspicious after I had thought about it, pretty sure it was a NARC crew

This dude wearing a blue shirt and mardi gra beads kept coming back to our tent asking if he could buy some acid

Something about him didnt feel right to me, but off course my other buddy immediately said he could buy some off us. I then cut my friend off and said we dont have any. This same guy came back 3 times in the course of an hour and a half. The third time he came back with a pipe and just started trying to smoke right in front of us to prove he was "down". I told him "for the last time, we cant sell you any because we dont have any. My friend was just joking. It wont be hard to find here though as long as you have good intentions..... just have good intentions and you will find it"

SO! After 3 pages of is this a narc or not?

To all people who were considered narcs but weren't: Bring your own drugs. People think you're going to send them to jail when you ask for drugs like a high schooler.

i get asked at least 2-3 times a year. not sure if i look like a dealer or stoned (i'm neither) but it's never been in the same location and only once did it seem like they could have been a narc (she was persistent and immediately changed tone/posture/body language after i made it clear i wasn't dealing). oddly enough it's almost always been someone asking for acid.

My group was at the back edge of lot 7, and there was constantly at least 3 cop cars parked along our row. There were also two watchtowers with cops watching the campgrounds with binoculars. What's worse, there were alot of people wearing straight clothes kinda pacing along the campsites. During the 2nd day we saw 3-4 cops walk into one of our neighbors' campground and raid the place when they werent there as we were walking by to get into the festival. That shit mustve sucked but they were openly talking about candyflipping during the day time, and cops can legally do that if they have suspicion or reasonable cause to do so.
Also, we all saw multiple arrests next to the row of portapotties in the corner of lot 7 and one time it was a guy talking to this girl at night and I swear he was a narc cuz they went into one of the stalls and two cops roll up and arrest the chick when she came out of the stall.
Unfortunately all that fucking bullshit is legal and they can't be sued for entrapment or anything because they are all protected under the 4th amendment. So yeah the only way to be certain that you wont get in the deep shit is by not selling and if you are, follow advice already given and ask questions and really feel them out before you make the deal. Don't be stupid and just sell to anyone who asks. Also, party favors are important for a festival like coachella, especially for weekend ones like me who had to deal with that ridiculous cold at night with bud (not the beer), but be smart about it and make sure you're not announcing it to the entire campground, and keep it out of plain sight. Someone said something about wristbands, I think they were mentioning the fact that narcs and undercovers typically have vip wristbands so be careful about that. They can profile us, but we can profile them too.

At least that's what i've learned from four years at THE FESTIVAL ON EARTH!!!! and law school!!!!

ALSO, this has been circulating the forums

"As a lawyer who's seen both sides of a criminal case, I can say that this advice is pretty spot on:
Apart from not doing anything illegal (or at least openly advertising that you're doing anything illegal), there are basic rules of thumb to follow in any citizen/police encounter. For those who don't want to click through everything, here are the basic steps to follow if you encounter a police officer at Coachella or anywhere else:
1) Be calm, cool, and collected.
2) Be respectful, but firmly exercise your right to remain silent and to not answer questions you feel uncomfortable with.
3) Respectfully refuse searches if asked (note: this will probably not work well at the Coachella gate, since you are giving your authorizaton to be searched as a condition of entry).
4) Don't get tricked, and be careful of strangers. The police are allowed to lie and use subterfuge (as well documented in these and similar threads).
5) If you are being detained, continually ask if you are free to go.
6) Don't expose yourself (again, if you light up a joint in the middle of the polo fields, or start acting like the naked wizard, the constitution probably won't be able to help you much, no matter how lax law enforcement traditionally is at Coachella).
7) Don't EVER run.
8) Don't EVER touch a cop.
9) Report police misconduct and watch out for the rights of your fellow concert-goers (remember, all of those recording devices can be used to capture things other than buzz bands)."

p.s. sorry for the long post bahaha

I saw a couple narcs during the festival. Didn't approach me, but damn they stand out like sore thumbs.

Having a lighter on Sunday was great. People would just ask me to use it and then offer a toke(n) of gratitude. By the end of Snoop/Dre I was as buzzed as I'd be with my own J. Trading for cigarettes worked other days, though mostly people seemed in the sharing mood when they had enough to spare.

We were all hanging out at our camp and this lady comes up and goes straight for our black friend asking if he has any "supplies." He saw that she had a backstage wristband and was suspicious. He then goes on to tell her how she needs to be careful cus there are narcs around. After he said that she bolted. She was wearing a dress with a lot of necklaces and he said that she saw one "necklace" that went down a lot further and under her dress.

that awkward moment when you read a story on the coachella message boards and realize that you're the black friend...lol. i was wondering when i'd finally read a post from someone i knew on here. and i really wish i would have chosen a more rude way to tell her to fuck off for profiling me but it's not my style. even though i be like "fuck the police," pretty much everyday.

I bet 95% of the "narcs" being discussed in this thread are regular folk that are really bad at trying to buy drugs.

Weekend 1 there was some huge dude wandering around in the Sahara blatantly selling shit, like obvious as could be. I kept waiting for him to get gang-tackled by security but no, just a wandering pharmacy at work.

I wonder how many people think I'm a narc because I'm over 30 and wander around blankly staring at people and things because I'm high as balls. Although I'm never asking to buy anything so maybe not. I did have some kid ask me if I would sell him some "disco biscuits." I told him to check out the barbeque stands in the food court, maybe they have biscuits, and the pulled pork is pretty decent.

My first thought was what if he's a narc cos I've read this thread but since we were kinda desperate for anything I decided to buy some. I waited a few minutes to see if any cops were following him. I guess we got lucky, it sucks for those dealers that fit the narc description.

We came over from Australia so obviously BYO was out of the question. I hadn't seen a band without "help" in as long as I can remember so was a little concerned about how I would handle 3 days. During Jimmy Cliff I was dying whilst everyone around smoked up, it took me ages to muster the courage to ask someone for a toke. I am in my mid-thirties and I'm sure they must of considered the possibility I was a narc, but I found most people to be generous and accommodating and my Coachella was all the better for it. On Saturday a chick came up to us and said "have you guys got any papers or a pipe I have way too much weed and nothing to smoke it with" I replied that could help her with at least one of her problems. All good from then on in.

On Friday of first weekend we saw a couple guys walking out of the campsite with a lil mexican dude in handcuffs.. my friends asks if they are cops to which they reply 'no' and just keep walking..

Then the next day this guy who looks like a typical Sahara bro in shorts and a t-shirt walks up to me at my campsite this year and asks if I know where he can find any pills... I say no but to keep looking cuz the shit is 'around' lol I guess I gave him the impression I was cool with drugs or had a personal stash or whatever... So then I lock up the car (I was the last one still chillin at the site) and head over to the showers for an afternoon spritz, when I'm near the edge of the campsite I look to my right and see the same guy standing in the path looking around, I'm pretty friendly so I walk up to him and ask if he found what he was looking for, he says no so again I just say keep looking it's around lol.. I'm still ignorant at this point.

So I walk towards the showers but when I get to the main road I see there is a big line so I take a left and start following the road to where the sinks were so I could just have a beercan-shower instead. I then head back to my campsite... as I walk up I see the same dude step out of our campsite between the two cars. It instantly hits me, fuck this guy is undercover DEA or something, he thought I was suspicions so he followed me when I left the site and then when he saw me change directions he must have thought I was heading into the festival, so he headed back to our campsite to snoop around (I'm guessing you don't really need a search warrant to look through bags and/or a tent that somebody ostensibly left lying in a field somewhere...), hoping to find some drugs and confront me with them when I got back maybe? like tell us where you got the drugs or you'll be charged with possession sorta deal, hoping i'd lead them to some dealers. Fuck.

So I'm thinking I just HAVE to know for sure, so I walk up to the guy pretending to be all friendly and make chit chat, I ask him where he's from, he says Huntington Beach, I tell him I know some people from there actually and ask him what high school he went to... His eyes then did this thing where they shot from side to side real quickly and he stammers out some bullshit school name, and i just KNEW he was full of shit. So I then politely tell him 'right well I can appreciate that youre looking for your drugs and all and I don't have a problem with that, but I think it's really weird that I come back from the showers and find you IN my campsite' to which he stammers 'OH this is YOUR campsite? Oh I had no idea!' and now I'm COMPLETELY sure he's full of shit, like dude you were just here asking me if I could sell you drugs and we are driving a crazy space van thats impossible to miss, then I talked to you again ten minutes later... So I decided I needed to politely tell him to fuck off without making it too too obvious that I had 'made' him so I say 'Ya well just to be clear, I'd appreciate it if you could go look for your drugs somewhere else because YOURE NOT GOING TO FIND ANYTHING HERE. (I was hinting that I knew he was looking through our site) And there are definitely NO drug dealers staying here. So go look somewhere else please'. So he says cool and walks over to his friend who had been on lookout about 40 m away and they walk off together. No shit.

Best part of the story is, the next day when we're heading into the festival we walk around to use the general admission entrance rather than the campground entrance to avoid the big lines, and as we are rounding the corner where the road meets the walkway up to the gates (about 150 m from the gates still) I see the SAME FUCKING DUDE wearing a safety vest and sitting on one of those bikes with the lil trailers behind, posing as one of those guys who you pay to give you a ride out to your car or to transport shit for you. You know the guys. But instead of transporting shit he was just hanging out watching people walk in towards the gates. See, I figure after I politely 'made' him as an undercover, he got demoted to lookout duty - he was just chilling there watching for people who get within sight of the main gates, see that they are frisking people, and think 'Oh shit, I gotta hide my shit ASAP' and quickly start hiding shit (drugs and whatnot) in there underwear or socks or somehting, at which point he would bust em.

At this point i'm feeling rather cocky so I walk straight up to the guy and say 'Hey! did you ever find what you were looking for??' at first he tried to feign ignorance but I could tell he recognized me and eventually he says 'uh.. no, not yet' and as I walk away I say 'Well, you're still DEFINITELY not going to find anything in MY campsite!' just to make it abundantly clear that if he or his cop buddies went back to my site to search around some more, it would be a big waste of time.

The guy got the message and just started laughing.

fuck the police.

It instantly hits me, fuck this guy is undercover DEA or something, he thought I was suspicions so he followed me when I left the site and then when he saw me change directions he must have thought I was heading into the festival, so he headed back to our campsite to snoop around (I'm guessing you don't really need a search warrant to look through bags and/or a tent that somebody ostensibly left lying in a field somewhere...), hoping to find some drugs and confront me with them when I got back maybe? like tell us where you got the drugs or you'll be charged with possession sorta deal, hoping i'd lead them to some dealers. Fuck.

So I'm thinking I just HAVE to know for sure, so I walk up to the guy pretending to be all friendly and make chit chat, I ask him where he's from, he says Huntington Beach, I tell him I know some people from there actually and ask him what high school he went to... His eyes then did this thing where they shot from side to side real quickly and he stammers out some bullshit school name, and i just KNEW he was full of shit. So I then politely tell him 'right well I can appreciate that youre looking for your drugs and all and I don't have a problem with that, but I think it's really weird that I come back from the showers and find you IN my campsite' to which he stammers 'OH this is YOUR campsite? Oh I had no idea!' and now I'm COMPLETELY sure he's full of shit, like dude you were just here asking me if I could sell you drugs and we are driving a crazy space van thats impossible to miss, then I talked to you again ten minutes later... So I decided I needed to politely tell him to fuck off without making it too too obvious that I had 'made' him so I say 'Ya well just to be clear, I'd appreciate it if you could go look for your drugs somewhere else because YOURE NOT GOING TO FIND ANYTHING HERE. (I was hinting that I knew he was looking through our site) And there are definitely NO drug dealers staying here. So go look somewhere else please'. So he says cool and walks over to his friend who had been on lookout about 40 m away and they walk off together. No shit.

Best part of the story is, the next day when we're heading into the festival we walk around to use the general admission entrance rather than the campground entrance to avoid the big lines, and as we are rounding the corner where the road meets the walkway up to the gates (about 150 m from the gates still) I see the SAME FUCKING DUDE wearing a safety vest and sitting on one of those bikes with the lil trailers behind, posing as one of those guys who you pay to give you a ride out to your car or to transport shit for you. You know the guys. But instead of transporting shit he was just hanging out watching people walk in towards the gates. See, I figure after I politely 'made' him as an undercover, he got demoted to lookout duty - he was just chilling there watching for people who get within sight of the main gates, see that they are frisking people, and think 'Oh shit, I gotta hide my shit ASAP' and quickly start hiding shit (drugs and whatnot) in there underwear or socks or somehting, at which point he would bust em.

At this point i'm feeling rather cocky so I walk straight up to the guy and say 'Hey! did you ever find what you were looking for??' at first he tried to feign ignorance but I could tell he recognized me and eventually he says 'uh.. no, not yet' and as I walk away I say 'Well, you're still DEFINITELY not going to find anything in MY campsite!' just to make it abundantly clear that if he or his cop buddies went back to my site to search around some more, it would be a big waste of time.

The guy got the message and just started laughing.

Fake narcs are worse. There was a crew going around the South East in 2004-2005 and they would rock fake badges and go on and on about how if you just handed over the contraband there wouldn't be any trouble. So many kids got scammed.. Word got around and people wised up. Pretty sure they caught a beating.

Im from Texas too and had so much trouble finding stuff last year. Thurs night seemed like the ideal night to seek out what we wanted with all the party around us in the campsite but we still struggled. It wasn't until Sat we met some people from Cali during breakfast and hit them up in their campsite. Got everything we wanted and then some. The rest of the fest was great thereafter.

If i had a dollar for ever little tween i saw puking off the sides of the Sahara tent or incoherently slouching over alone in the middle of a heavily trafficked/walk through area, I'd be able to buy everyone at coachella a beer.

Had a guy walk into our campsite last year, sit down like he owned the place, and ask of we were looking for Molly.

He made chit-chat for a minute but by the look of him, I could tell he was a cop.

We just told him no thanks, were good. We made him feel a little out of place and he left pretty quickly.

Late 40s, white, over weight, tie dyed shirt, bandana, trying way too hard to be selling Molly.

Hmmm.... if you can't spot a narc, then you probably shouldn't be bringing drugs to a festival anyway. If you're looking to buy drugs at a festival, you probably shouldn't have drugs. If you think you're going to want drugs, you'd better find them before you go, and kee.p them to yourself, and your company. Not to say I think there should be drugs at the festival.... but if I had drugs, and you asked to buy from me, I would almost definitely tell you I didn't know anything about any drugs. If you're cool, you might be able to find someone, but it's worth it to find what you think you'll need before the fest. You'll thank yourself later

If you need any form of medication to enjoy the festival, then it will be worth it for you to rent a vehicle to drive to the festival, or go cold turkey. Herbs should be pretty easy to find in the area, considering how many medical patients there are locally, but if it's anything else, you'll want to bring it. If you're super friendly, you might be able to come across some good hookups in the campground, but I wouldn't count on it lol

On Friday of first weekend we saw a couple guys walking out of the campsite with a lil mexican dude in handcuffs.. my friends asks if they are cops to which they reply 'no' and just keep walking..

Then the next day this guy who looks like a typical Sahara bro in shorts and a t-shirt walks up to me at my campsite this year and asks if I know where he can find any pills... I say no but to keep looking cuz the shit is 'around' lol I guess I gave him the impression I was cool with drugs or had a personal stash or whatever... So then I lock up the car (I was the last one still chillin at the site) and head over to the showers for an afternoon spritz, when I'm near the edge of the campsite I look to my right and see the same guy standing in the path looking around, I'm pretty friendly so I walk up to him and ask if he found what he was looking for, he says no so again I just say keep looking it's around lol.. I'm still ignorant at this point.

So I walk towards the showers but when I get to the main road I see there is a big line so I take a left and start following the road to where the sinks were so I could just have a beercan-shower instead. I then head back to my campsite... as I walk up I see the same dude step out of our campsite between the two cars.

Its funny how some of you guys get repeated people walking up to you asknig for drugs, should tell you something about how you appear.

Sounds exactly like something the dirty pigs there would do. You must've got lucky & probably got lost in the crowd to where they couldn't find you to bust you for possession. They do shady shit like this using tatted up punk rock biker lookin informant whores as entrapment devices.

I bring enough of whatever I want for me, and another person, but usually show up solo. I've given and sold on the polo grounds to people who knew I was smoking as they were camping right next to me, and seemed pretty cool (aside from the part where they were totally stoked to see the Black Keys return). It's possible to get ahold of whatever you're looking for, but I hate being in that position myself. Would much rather be the guy with extra than to be the guy walking around with that look on his face because he came to a festival ill prepared. All of that having been said... I'm definitely not going to have any drugs this year. Not even a bud. Lol

i can tell you for a FACT this is true.... at Pop 2010 up here in San Francisco they caught a ton of people that way by using a guy and girl to give out the "free pills" and some rolled out raver chick to try and buy them... and i know its not a rumor because it happend to my roommate and her boyfriend and luckily when he was being tackled he threw whatever it was that he had and they only caught him with the stuff they gave him... which was evidence from another case.... which means his case ended up having to be thrown out and he spent 4 days in jail in redwood city for nothing....

Selling to some random fuck roaming is always a bad idea. If you've talked to the people/person some, and have pretty much felt them out, then act accordingly. Also, you're going to get busted if you sell for profit. I sold some excess for a hook up price, and here I am with a clean record.

Arrested? I've probably got one of the cleanest records on the board. I did some desperate brits a big favor, and hooked them up with some of God's green so they could enjoy their show. I knew they would be getting high and going to the Black Keys, so I was also doing myself a favor, knowing I wouldn't be at the Black Keys show. We all do our part. If you go to Coachella with drugs, guaranteed, people will know you have drugs. If you go to Coachella with the intent to sell, you're going to be focusing more on the people, and much less on the music. This is why you're going to get busted. I've had people approach me looking for drugs, (and when I say drugs, I usually mean marijuana, which isn't much of a drug at all, or e, which I would never consciously give another human being), but I always had a stage to be at, and didn't trust them. If its your neighbor campers, it should be okay. If it's anyone else, continue with your day. I had a girl with pasties on her nipples trying to get some weed from me. When I said no, she pulled out a baggie of her own and started trying to roll one. Seconds later a security guard came through with a flashlight. She had her stash between her legs, right where the dude shined his light, and he kept walking.

Does that story make sense to you? She was a narc. I don't get arrested, as I'm a keen being. You'd seriously have to be dumb as shit to get arrested on possession. Just saying. I couldn't give a fuck less if you care about my logic or not. My reality dictates my words, for better and for worse. If you disagree with anything, go ahead and prove it. Seems like people think "I hate you. Ignore" is good proof of someone being in the wrong, when in fact it's probably the most pathetic online move anyone can make. It's like when a sibling would do the silent treatment to you... minus the part where you care at all. See? Logic. Breath it in, deep and heavy.

3.Everyone thinks of themselves as ever vigilant and smarter than cops but they do a whole lot of unsuspecting devious shit and when kids are partying with their guards dropped shit happens & cases are caught resulting in changed lives for some foolish shit.

We, abusers of the law, have a good idea of what we're doing. I'd be willing to catch whatever hell for giving a couple grams of herbal enjoyment to some brits. It'd definitely piss me off, but I'd know I fucked up. To even bring anything other than marijuana, you're asking for trouble. Many of us do bring more than marijuana (I actually don't think I'll be bringing any this year, considering the hassle it brings), and we take risks just bringing our personal stash. If you proceed to try selling anything other than marijuana, you're pretty fucked. If you happen to give a substance to a friend who always partakes in substance abuse, then so be it, but to sell to strangers is a major mistake.

Enter logic. If you're selling any class of substance that is considered illegal with or without script, you're asking to get locked up. I can spot a transaction from a mile away. What makes you think "they" can't do the same? I consider myself to be someone who abides by the law. Policing isn't a concern of mine. The moment you feel you're doing something wrong, just cut it out. Getting shifty eyed and stiff limbed when you see any police officer/ military/ security is really no way to live. They can smell your fear, just as I can. Starts to smell like pepperoni pizza with stuffed crust after awhile.


LOL, I find a pleasant subtle endearing quality to your twisted logic so definitely more bros than not.

Just that was an affront to logic thus the QFT. I'd expect none the less from you. :)

How can I hold hard feelings for someone named LiquidL? My logic is based on energy waves ;)

They had drug sniffing dogs going around in the AM while everyone was sleeping. I didn't hear the dog barking, but I guess it woke everyone else up. We checked around in the afternoon and found half a blunt near our campsite. Glad they didnt find it/let it slide.

On Friday there was an older black guy in his late 30's walking around mumbling "molly, thizzles, pills" in a low voice wearing a tye-dye shirt and a doo rag lolz.

There were NO drug dogs. That's insane. At least in my part of the camp. I was up super early walking around every morning. Don't scare people like that.

Strangest rationale I have ever heard. Coachella is one of the few places I DO wear athletic shoes because I am on my feet and walking around all damn day. I'm not a cop.

The dog barked followed by a Flashlight lurking around my camp site.

Do you happen to know the difference between a dog, and a drug sniffing dog, by the sound of its bark?

You paranoid drug addict. If peoples tents were getting raided by dogs, we'd all be talking about it right now. Here're the facts, kids. Security walks around a bit on Thursday night. By Friday afternoon, Coachella camping is fully alive, and cannot be stopped. If cops started raiding tents, the addicted masses would swallow them up in seconds.

I want to call you stupid, but I know there are good stupid people out there who would be offended, you fucking burnout.

Last year as I was leaving Dada Life's set in the Sahara some older guy (probably in his 30's) asked me if I had any Molly. I stopped stared him straight in the eye and said "Oink oink motherf*cker." The guy immediately broke eye contact and turned away. I think just for the hell of it this year I'm going to bring in some goldfishes (the cheese cracker) and if anyone asks me I'll tell them, "I've got these killer goldfishes for $10 a pop", and when they give me the money I will hand them nothing but Peppridge Farm goodness.

What would you have done if it were the 22 year old topless girl walking around the Outdoor stage with flower pasties on her nipples? This girl approached me and asked if I had anything to smoke. I said no. She said, "Oh, because I saw you smoking something." I think I might have gotten a blowjob out of it if I'd just said "Oink oink motherfucker." Did that guy take you back to your tent and blow you, or is this story boring and ridiculous?

If you are stupid enough to be smoking weed in the wide open where some cop might smell it and see you doing it...yea you're gonna get busted. Use your f'n head and go in your tent or somewhere where you aren't in wide open spaces.
There are cops there in uniform - they are not looking for drugs, they are there to make sure everyone is good to go.
The undercover cops are there hunting and pecking looking for sellers and those using in the wide open acting like it's 1969 Woodstock.

How do I know? Met the head of Coachella security last year and we hung out for about 4 hours chatting with his family.

Rule #1 - Do not sell!!!! If you want to give someone -even the undercover a free hit....they'll pass, but you won't be arrested. If you even try to get $3 for a few hits...they gonna cuff ya and take you directly to jail. You will not be able to tell the age of the undercover agents. Saw some pictures and one of the ladies could pass for being 18...she had a ton of arrests (according to him) ...stated she even had people in cuffs and stopped other people to see if they were selling and caught more in a single sweep.

The amount of $ they take is amazing. He said 2 girls selling had over $12,000 in cash on them when they caught them.

Rule 2 - take your stuff in hidden places and don't act like your f'n king of the world doing it in the wide open.

follow the advice and you'll be fine

Tent to tent dog checks for narcotics would never happen. It would never happen in the campgrounds check-in, either, as the dogs would be going fucking nuts the entire time. If Gestapo tactics were being used, I think the cowardly druggies would either split the scene, or realize their numbers. Not sure how it went from me explaining how bullshit these fears are, to you taking it seriously in any way, but it's not going to happen. A music festival without drugs is an empty music festival.

Last year, we were getting our 21+ wristbands in the campgrounds, and security comes by asking if we had seen two or three guys with yellow shirts, that were posing as security. Apparently they were going around to campsites and confiscating illegal things they found.

Seems like a pretty good scam, hard to go to the police/security and tell them some guys came by and took your illegal substances.

Exactly, they know that people take drugs at these things. The cops have one purpose at the festival: to ensure the safety of festival attendees. To a cop, this means that they need to find drug dealers and provide backup to the festival security when necessary. Why do you think that we've never heard of anyone getting busted for buying? (If you have please share) And yes, agreed: If there were dogs then they would be going nuts the whole time.

Every year there are Drug Dog rumors and i certainly hope they are not true again this year. I have personally witnessed security and police raiding campsites and arresting people. Normally they are tipped off or stumble upon the unlucky group smoking weed in the middle of their camp, just asking to be searched. Just be smart.

U A LIE. U IZ A GADAM LIE.

You mean Coachella is no longer an extension of Amsterdam? Ouch! We're going to have to actually zip our tents up when we smoke?! What a fucking outrage.

It shouldn't take saying. If you're that fucking stupid, enjoy the show from youtube. I frequent a green smoke inside the venue, but it's not like I'm at home on the couch lighting up all day. It's a different place, and if you treat it like you're at home on the couch, you're going to lose out.
