we got a group yet to be determined coming from Vancouver. Will be second time for most of us. Canadians everywhere... we had a crazy bunch from Edmonton right next to us last year...

FYI there are no in or outs for the concert so bring half the stuff you think you will need, you really won't need it...

Two of us coming from Vancouver for our second Coachella (2004 was the other). We camped last time and it was great. A little too regulated, esp compared to Sasquatch, but still great.

There are about 8-10 of us coming from the Chatham/London region. We also met some crazy guys from Edmonton last year. Really fun to party with. They stayed up till 8am drinking Alberta Premium out of a water bottle. What a laugh.

Brentw0
01-25-2007, 11:21 AM
It would be wicked if we could all try and camp in the same general area... This is my first Coachella, how does camp site selction work? you get to the gate, they give you an random spot? or can you request a certain spot? Looks like i convinced at least 2 of my NewBrunswick crew to come down for the festival :) should be a strong canadian presence by the sounds of it.

01-26-2007, 04:58 AM
I'm getting more excited for this every day! I don't know if i can wait till the end of april! :)

If ppl rock the red and white, it should be easy enough to find other canadians. (love the dave Suzuki idea!) What if when you sign in for a camp site, mention that 'I'm canadian'/'where are all the canadians?', that might help ppls chnaces of getting close to our 'own kind'. Im not sure tho...never camped at Coachella before.

p.s. I'm looking to share costs of transport from Palmsprings airport to Coachella...

Take 'er easy all

I'm coming from Vancouver and camping onsite. my third coachella. The camping setup is first come first serve so when you get there they let you pick a letter and then you camp near that letter. (like a big post with a letter on it). If we pick a letter ahead of time and then all request that same area it'd probably be the best way of doing it. only problem is we wont know if the letter we pick is close to anything good (ie beer garden)...

Gotch ya. thx for the info... from past experience, are the letters and tenting spots the same year to year? or is it pretty much random? We could pick a letter now, and cross our fingers that its good area... and if its not, every canadian for him/her self... ;)

When you come in the gates and register, they will give you a spot. I'm not sure if you can request a spot or not. It's totally random and also dependant on how many people are in your tent/area. It's a big grid divided into lanes marked "A", "B", "C", and so forth. You should meet in the bar on Thursday night at Karioke. That's always a fun time, and great to meet new people!

What's with Canadians coming on here and playing up every lame cliche there is about Canadians? It's a bit tired.

Yes, I'm Canadian. But coming to something like Coachella and trying to surround yourself with other Canadians isn't really what it's all about. And, to me anyways, it isn't what being Canadian is all about.

I posted a redundant thread looking for canadians before I found this one... and the canucks. glad to see Im not the only one who managed to cope with this nice little ticketmaster rule:
if you don't live in the united states, you can only buy tickets for american shows online or over the phone, which means extra service charges & sketchy-ass shipping.
$789 CDN for 2 passes and 2 camping passes. and judging by the rules posted, it's gonna be a pain in the sandy desert ass to find canadian-quality bud down at camp coachella. if I'm wrong, PLEASE let me know.
anyways, a travel tip:
greyhound buses across the states are a FRIGGIN RIP OFF. you spend $400 return (this is a quote, not an estimate) to sit on a bus for three days each way. now if you bus across the border on greyhound to buffalo or any other non-international airport, you can catch a flight to LAX for extremely cheap. return bus& airfare, $250 total, and the trip's half a day each way. (all funds CDN).

so that's my next question:
any canadians (specifically torontonians) out there looking for either people to travel with or (here's what I'm hoping for) people who want to carpool or get a group shuttle or something to the grounds from LAX or another area airport? let me know.

alright. hope to see you all at musical mecca 2007.

Sweet.. Me and a Buddy are Commin from Vancouver Island. Im interested in the cheapest, quickest way possible. Frozer Pilgrem, which other non-international airports would you recomend? anyone else from the island goin over on the thursday? for the Camping, wouldn't the "C" area make sense to try to gather canadians? once your in the Festival it's just gonna be a Free for All Rockout session anyways.. Might as well find a reason to all get along while Camping out Between days. I Can't Wait! ROCK ON!!! p.s. to Non-Canadians: if you Like Good Weed, Find us:P

frozen pilgrim
01-28-2007, 10:56 AM
I'm not too sure about airports on the west coast. people form ontario hsould be gunning for either buffalo or somewhere in new jersey (newark is good). west coast... I'm not a geography buff. somewhere near seattle would be a good bet for people in BC. Spokane, washington is probably good. for people in alberta/saskatchewan, I think the closest US airport is Great Falls, Montana. manitoba.... I didn't know anybody from winnipeg was coming :P.

anyways, hope that helps.

for those interested in cheap flights from Vancouver to LAX...

I just booked tix leaving Thurs (several flights to choose from) and coming back Monday (again, several to choose from) on aircanada.ca and it was only $340CDN all in.

For some reason they've dropped the prices substantially from what was on their site yesterday for the same days.

frozen pilgrim
01-28-2007, 02:53 PM
mmk. here's a thought: anybody arriving at LAX sometime in the morning or early afternoon and looking to check in at 5PM for camping, private message me. we should all figure out a group shuttle. it'll defenitely be cheaper than a greyhound to indio and then who knows what from there.

AdamToronto
01-28-2007, 06:08 PM
from what i can gather...

for people in the toronto area..

buffalo to LAX is the cheapest. flying in to palm springs is about 100 bux more per person..


as far as what happens when you get to LA...

well, apparently renting a van/car seems to be the cheapest.

so thats what me and my friends will be doing. and we're camping... sooooo.. im down to hook up with you all in this little canada tent city thing we seem to have going on.

we can only hope. or be proactive. but not me. I'd say that the folks driving from BC have a duty as west coast canadians to smuggle some of that sweet salt spring island sativa.

anyways, on the camping rules/faq page it says that "camp counselors" will help arrange for reserved spaces. so it seems like camp canada is realistically possible

thanks for the advice. you mind going into a little more detail about setting it up with amtrak? Station Locations? Timeline? etc. Would really help, that sounds mad cheap.. im interested.

Here is the best way to do it, from the Vancouver Bus/Train terminal you take a bus to Seattle, the bus stops at customs, then once you are in Seattle you board a train, the Coast Starlight, which will take you all the way to Los Angeles, The entire endeavor will take about 38 hours, and from the numbers I'm getting, will cost you $96 each way. Give the Amtrak people a call, they are extremely helpful, make West Jet employees look mean. You'll be able to switch your departure, etc. without any hassle or charges. I understand that it is a long trip but it is comfortable (enough leg room for almost anyone I'm sure, and seats that actually recline), and the food is not too bad.

Also, if you had several friends coming with you, you could book a private room together and use it as a home base where you would be able to get some nice quality sleep on a real bed (although the regular seats aren't terrible) that'll add another 247US$ on top, but probably worth it as your meals are included.

We are six coming from Sudbury, Ontario. Going from extremely cold to beautiful weather, I can not wait.

Cool, Sudbury's my hometown! I spent many summers up there at my grandpa's in Gatchell, out at my aunt & uncle's place in Skead. Way too cold in the winter though!

Here is the best way to do it, from the Vancouver Bus/Train terminal you take a bus to Seattle, the bus stops at customs, then once you are in Seattle you board a train, the Coast Starlight, which will take you all the way to Los Angeles, The entire endeavor will take about 38 hours, and from the numbers I'm getting, will cost you $96 each way. Give the Amtrak people a call, they are extremely helpful, make West Jet employees look mean. You'll be able to switch your departure, etc. without any hassle or charges. I understand that it is a long trip but it is comfortable (enough leg room for almost anyone I'm sure, and seats that actually recline), and the food is not too bad.

Also, if you had several friends coming with you, you could book a private room together and use it as a home base where you would be able to get some nice quality sleep on a real bed (although the regular seats aren't terrible) that'll add another 247US$ on top, but probably worth it as your meals are included.

Thanks Bro.. I'll Look into it.

Sweet.. Me and a Buddy are Commin from Vancouver Island. Im interested in the cheapest, quickest way possible. Frozer Pilgrem, which other non-international airports would you recomend? anyone else from the island goin over on the thursday? for the Camping, wouldn't the "C" area make sense to try to gather canadians? once your in the Festival it's just gonna be a Free for All Rockout session anyways.. Might as well find a reason to all get along while Camping out Between days. I Can't Wait! ROCK ON!!! p.s. to Non-Canadians: if you Like Good Weed, Find us:P

Cheapest way would be driving. Don't know if it's the quickest but if you have some friends split the cost of gas you're looking at huge savings over the cost of a flight.

I'll be driving down with some buddies on wednesday afternoon. We're all from Sidney (Vancouver Island). This camp canada idea sounds wicked, we've gotta make it happen.

Hi Everyone! This looks like a great little forum. I'm trying to convince a few friends to come, but it's a bit expensive to fly from Newfoundland! I see there's a few others from the Atlantic Provinces. The Canadian tent city is just what I'm looking for. I plan to go, set up my tent, a Canadian flag and make as many friends as possible!

Nonetheless, I'm looking for people to party with and will hopefully camp with most of you at the field. I saw a thread around here about people renting a bus and driving down to the concert but can't seem to find it now. I haven't decided on travel method yet. I'm gonna lose about 70,000 aeroplan points if I don't use them soon, so maybe I'll use that. But that bus sounds bad ass too!

i havent been before but from reading some of the threads here it sounds like they're pretty strict. that shouldn't stop you from trying though. i doubt they're going to have everyone unroll their sleeping bags and unpack their tents just to check for some booze in an 18+ campground.

Gotch ya. thx for the info... from past experience, are the letters and tenting spots the same year to year? or is it pretty much random? We could pick a letter now, and cross our fingers that its good area... and if its not, every canadian for him/her self... ;)

the first year i went they didnt have the lettering system so im not sure if its random or not. i'd assume not because whats the point of making it random. easier for them to just keep it the same.


When you come in the gates and register, they will give you a spot. I'm not sure if you can request a spot or not. It's totally random and also dependant on how many people are in your tent/area. It's a big grid divided into lanes marked "A", "B", "C", and so forth. You should meet in the bar on Thursday night at Karioke. That's always a fun time, and great to meet new people!

you CAN request a spot, you just gotta ask for it, otherwise they'll just assign you one.

but has anyone recently flown within the US, without a Canadian passport.

My girlfriend and I are driving from Toronto to Buffalo, and then flying from Buffalo to LA.

I've read that the new passport restrictions are only for flying from Canada to the US, but what about flying within the US. If they dont do a customs check for domestic flights do you think you HAVE to have a passport, or will some other valid ID (Ontario Health Card) be fine?

I know the safe thing is to get a passport, but I need to get another piece of ID before I can even apply for the passport, so its looking to be a pain in the ass at this point, and I would like to avoid it if I can.

To fly domestic US flights you DO NOT need a passport (although it makes travelling in general a lot more hassle free). If you are flying into the US from any country you DO need one.

Also, anyone staying on the Thursday night. If you could be really cool and save me and my buddy a campsite that would be really great. We're gonna be rollin into camparound 3am on the Friday morn and would love to set up camp as the sun rises. So if anyone would be willing to save a spot which I know is allowed, that would be super!!

Yes, gongshow is right. My friend and I are doing the same as you to avoid the 2 month wait and save the 100$ doll hairs. But, 2 peices of I.D are still required, just to cross the border by land.

We've got 5 of us driving down from Ottawa. It'll be a long 60 hours...actually, both ways it'll be more time on the road than at the festival, but who cares, Rage is playing and I'm not going to miss that.

We'll definitely be looking for Camp Canada once we get there!

Honestly this whole camping with other Canadians thing seems a bit overrated. I mean it will be cool to be around some people with common ground, but overly proud nationalistic flag wavers are boring and usually pretty lame. From jingoistic Americans during war time, to trite italians during world cup season. Yay, your from 'that' country... congradualtions.

Im more excited to meet people from other parts of the world, and enjoy the fact that we all share something that breaks down national borders. Besides American girls are a riot to party with, and south americans go fukin crazy in the pit. What are us Canadians gonna bring to the dance? Not just our flags I hope.

Canadians are fun. It will be cool to have a Canadian Tent city and get people from other parts of the world to join us. With such a huge country it will be awesome to have people from BC or Alberta hanging out with people from the Maritimes. It doesn't matter where the people you hang out with are from it's the people.

Well, I for one already get to experience living with people from all over the world everyday because I live in a ski town so it will actually be nice to see some Canadians again. Honestly, I am suprised when I meet people now to hear a Canadian accent.

the canadian tent city sounds cool but also a bit seclusive.

um... you live in Canada, a country based on multiculturalism. How about walking outside your door and looking around? Personally, if I wanted to experience the worlds cultures, America is pretty much the last place I'd go. I travel constantly, and I always do it with Canadians. It's just better that way.

I agree with the other dude, America sucks, I'm going for the music and I can't wait to chill with all the canucks!

I never claimed to be trying to experience the cultures of the world... Read my comment, my point is why limit yourself?

Also thanks for pointing out the multiculturalism of Canada *claping my hands*
I didnt notice during my commute on the ttc every morning. Im so glad that such informed and observant people like yourself are here to help the rest of us out.

Besides if you've only travelled with Canadians.. how do you know its not more fun than with a pack of germans?

Flying down with three friends from Calgary and hoping to meet up with some friends from Sask. A Canadian city might make this mission a little easier! We're coming down on Tues. and gonna hang out in Joshua tree for a few days. Plan to be at the campsite earlier Thurs. to get a good spot....if its possible!!

Flying to San Francisco a week early from Edmonton and then Long Beach for some surf before getting to Indio on the Wednesday... flying solo until Thursday night... anyone want to start the festivities early with me?!
Ps. Camp Canada sounds amazing... is there anyway to contact the organizers early and get a designated area?

Why are you putting down your fellow Canadians? Don't try to say that your comments were anything but rude.If your not interested in Camping with the rest of us then why bother visiting the discussion board? I for one am offended by your comments and it looks like severval others are to, good job your already making lots of freinds.

Just because you tent near a "canadian tent city" doesn't mean you are not going to mingle and meet other people :S I like the idea of flags & camping with other canadians :) I am a proud canadian

There will be four of us driving down from Saskatoon, but because of a final, we can't leave until April 26th at noon. The plan is to drive straight through the night, but this still means we won't be getting into Indio until Friday evening.

So, my question is....Is there any way to save a spot in "Camp Canada" so that we don't end up camping beside the port-o-potties or something equally terrible?

Hey!!! Coming from Toronto, with what looks like about 5, maybe more in a crew!!! Partied at camp Canada last year, but it was a little infiltrated. The way it works is on a first come first serve basis. They put you where they have room. You can't really get a Canadian contigency together in advance. Best to just post a meeting "letter" (it is arranged kinda like a parking lot) and then have directions posted to an official "camp canada" (there goes us canadians with our brains again!)

So there's a Canadian Coachella Campers on Facebook and all of us are going to try to get into C. If all the Canadian's request C well see how well it goes. Shannon has been trying to organize this village thing for awhile so message her and she'll tell you how things are working out!

There's a group on facebook?

I'll have my Canadian flag with me, but I'm setting up my tent where ever....I'm sure I'll meet many Canadians during the weekend so I don't really need to make a point to surround myself.

Any Calgarians flying on the Thursday at 10:45am?

But we're arriving Friday, so there might not be any space left.
Regardless, we'll keep a look out!

Last year CAMP CANADA was located in campsite "C". Look for campsite "C" if the campsites are lettered again this year.
