This was my first coachella and I had a fucking blast!! I'm definetly going to come back next year. Next time around I'll bring all the right stuff camping too.

Things to bring for camping next year that I wish I had as a noob
Smaller tent
one of those canopy shade things
wipes for when you can't get a shower (like after sunday)
more booze (I didn't know that security would be that chill)

Most likely, depending upon what's going on next year. I'm already thinking about it. Just about everyone on these forums seems ready.

I hope they can get more reunions of incredible bands and some groups that haven't played Coachella before.

The poll in this thread is a little weird, I have no idea what the particulars will be, but if the lineup is any good, I'll probably find a way to go.

Yes. I'm thinking about camping and staying in a hotel simultaneously.

Yes i will be going next year. The only thing that you should definitely bring is water. Atleast three cases just to have enough.

Will be back camping next year provided that the campsite be better equipped, planned, set up etc. (this year our campsite was essentially one small tent and a field of debris that was all our shit)

2007 was my first year....we definately will be going again next year. However I don't think we'll camp again, my allergies were going crazy for 4 days straight!

Yes. I'm thinking about camping and staying in a hotel simultaneously.

Really? You're the second person I've heard mention that. The only reason I can think of doing this is to chill/party for a while until everyone leaves the parking lots.

Is it the (cough cough) goodies on-site? 'Cos that would make a BIG difference. ;)

Been going to this thing since 2002 and I don't plan on stopping next year...

Sorry, i'm spoiled. My boyfriend and I rented a condo and it was cheaper and closer than any hotel. And it had air conditioning, a pool nearby, tv/dvd player, 2 bathrooms, and the most comfortable bed to crawl into at 1am after a long day and nite in the sweltering heat and sore feet. And I already told the guy we rented it from that we want it next year!

and definitely camping, but a big yes to a battery-operated tent fan 'cause fuck that tent got hot.

Definitely going next year, I have faith that the lineup will always be good and the whole weekend is well worth the money! Next year my brother will be 18 and we'll be able to onsite camp! I can't wait, we're comparing it to Lake Cahuilla, where we've camped the past 2 years

we shared a rented 2-bedroom house about 20 minutes away. Gated community on a golf course. Pretty sweet.

Next year, same thing. Plan B would be a hotel. However, I'm going to buy camping tickets right away, just in case. If we get the house or hotel, I can easily sell the camping tickets for face value or more.

3 years in a row - saw Coldplay, NIN, Tool, Daft Punk, Rage - not sure who they could bring next year to entice me down to Cali again. Won't be camping again though. Thinking about getting a hotel room or an RV and getting a bicycle to get back and forth from the venue.

Fuck yeah I'm going...I've hotelled it all 4 years but would like to know 'bout renting a condo or house...

I don't think I'd miss it--this was my 5th Coachella, so it's kind of tradition now! It was also the 4th year we stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn. It was hilarious this time since there was a dance recital going on in our hotel that weekend. It was like the Little Miss Sunshine contest. Scary.

But yeah, I'm down. Not for the camping though--I'm too old & soft.

I think camping is a bad idea - its far to hot, sticky, unclean and smelly ... eeeww! Next year I would like helicoptered back and forth to the venue each day and return in the evening to a 5 star hotel where 6 cali girls are waiting to attend to my every whim!!

a bicycle is the way to go....
next year.. hotel or condo. this year I kept thinking how nice it would have been to go swimming after the concert..

I'll be making the journey from OZ to check Coachella out for the first time...Is it best to camp or stay in a hotel nearby?

I travelled to Lolla last year, but heard it has nothing on this festival..

Really looking forward to it!

Reunions for 2008;

I feel absolutely the same. I can't wait to see the lineup next year to see which bands I'd over looked and will fall in love with. :)

YES, camping too. I wont ever consider a hotel or renting like a house until I go with my kids. (if I ever have kids)

Camping is fun, and camping is cheap, but camping in 106 degree heat sucks ass. I'll be at the Marriott (or comparable) next year!.

i am going whatever the line up, we are staying at the super 8 on 111 in indio, hopefully we can walk to the festival from there or one of us will drive, we drove last time we went (2004) we were a bit drunk but we never got to go over 15 mph on the way out and by the time we had got off the car park i was sober! (only travelling 4 miles to the qulity inn)at 10

Camping is the only way to go. Obviously I go to check out all the bands I love, and all the bands I am about to find and simultaneously fall in love with. But mostly I go for the entire experience, and the only way to immerse yourself fully is to camp it out. No matter how sticky, sweaty and hot I get, it's the only way to experience it. Besides, after a few hours I'd just be a sticky, sweaty mess anyways. So long as I can get the mess of me at least once every 24 hours, I'll survive.

Whoever dropped the quote "we're all in this together" has it pegged. That's what it's all about for me. People coming together for three days to experience the same thing. I should have been a hippie.

renting house, 1 mile away, pool will be amazing. been in '05 (palm springs), and last year (rancho mirage), and the thing is it doesnt matter how close you are, if you have to drive in and out, its gonna suck. either camp, walk from a nearby house, or be prepared for long (frustrating) amounts of time in your car.

any tips for an aussie girl on how to find a nearby house to rent just for two ppl?

We live down the way in that country club/hotel alot of you have mentioned.There were several rentals through the summer available. I could ask around about any of these being available for the festival only...

just got our room at the Marriot Shawdown Ridge.. not a bad price, (189)considering everything close to empire polo fields is either sold out, or $400 a night.. just read that the chemical bro's are rumored.. sweet..
