  1. Re: Coachella ticket sale questions from a newbie

    Presale is definitely the way to go. Regular sale now has become tough to get a ticket. The person above who said 40% chance is probably correct. Though if you don't get a ticket, best way is to...

    I usually park south of the park at around 34th and Lawton (in that vicinity), and then just hike it in from there. Always possible to find a spot. Though a bit of walking is required.
