  1. Re: Past Experiences with Safari Tent & Coachella Guest Passes

    Nope. However I am sure that it would be fairly easy to sneak in a flask.

    I have stayed in Safari the last two years and if you can afford it, it is well worth it. There are multiple threads with the details, those will have everything you want to know. Most things have...

    Re: What are the different passes?

    I know what the passes are, but have seen people post asking. Thought this would help answer the question. Edited original post, is that better?

    What are the different passes?

    In case you were wondering, I found a 2013 Staff Guide weekend 1. This was one of the pages.

    The guest passes last year were a heart, so it wouldn't surprise me at all if it is a star this year. Guest pass would be my guess. Also, I highly doubt it is fake as why would someone go through...

    The website Charity Buzz has multiple coachella auctions going on. Some are VIP with Meet and Greet. I even saw one for Artist Guest passes.

    The area in front is for a few different wrist band holders. Artist, Production, Artist Guests, and Safari Tent guests. The only way they can be purchase is via a Safari Tent.
