Ok, it says in the camping area FAQ that NO outisde food is allowed, however ppl on here have been talking about coolers.

Can we bring food into the camp area or not? I want to bring a foam cooler full of fruit, water, juice and veggies into my tent. I have no idea if security will take away my food/drinks or not....what is the deal-io here? Are ppl talking about leaving their coolers in their car and going to the parking lot to eat? I am also gonna try and smuggle in some rum in a water bottle...do they check for shit like that? will they just say, oh it's outside water, and take it away from me..??

Also, what is the pat down like? Are they intense, checking your sack like the cops, or is is pretty superficial?

as you can tell, i have never been to Coachella, so i have alot of questions and i am looking to save money...i dont want to get drunk buying every drink at the tent ($$$ !!!)

-Thx.

I think you should go back and read that page again:

* Feel free to bring your own food and beverages into onsite camping, but unfortunately there will be NO open fires, gas, charcoal, propane or any other cooking devices allowed.

the "no outside food" line is from the event rules.
no food allowed in the festival gates, but bring food for the campsite.

they do check for alcohol but if it looks like water they may or may not inspect further. that shit was kind of obnoxious because the camping line would've been 1/2 as long if they weren't checking so thoroughly for alcy. the guy in front of me had a flask in the middle of a rolled-up sleeping bag and the guard found it and threw it away. what a bummer!

but yeah you can bring food and drinks as long as they're not alcohol or don't look like alcohol after a quick search.

I was going to fill up my backpack with trail mix and beef jerky and shit like that to munch on throughout the day. Will it be a problem to bring that into the festival?

They'll probably make you chuck it all in the trash at the entrance since you're not allowed to bring in food.

Them's the rules. Most of the food inside is pretty good though.

ITS GOOD thats the point when you spend a lot of money on food, it has to be good right?

Keep in mind... it says no outside food and beverage... but they change the rules about water bottles... daily. Retarded.

Well... one day I went and they threw out all of my un-opened water bottles, and then on the next day... I was allowed to bring them in. Another time I wasnt checked at all... they just waved me thru. So basically.... the rules change depending on what day, mood of the security at the gate... weather... moon phase.

If your creative and smart, you can pretty much sneak in anything!

i'm just curious, what big festivals (burning man doesn't count) allow you to bring outside food into the concert venue itself? (i'm not being sarcastic, i haven't been lucky/budget-wise enough to put together the $$/have enough vacation time to go to bonnaroo, sxsw, glastonbury, etc etc)...
