    Default I am actually thinking about camping again in 2008.

    2004 was my first Coachella, and I camped. I have never experienced such ridiculous temperatures. I think I got about 4 hours sleep over the entire 3 days. There was no shade ANYWHERE and every morning I got woken up at 4am by the sun slowly rising and roasting me in my tent. I was sharing the tent with my friend Simon and on the last night we were both so hot that we decided to forget about our dignity and both just slept naked. On the Monday morning, as I drove away from the campsite, I felt more exhausted and broken and filthy and hot than I have ever felt in my entire life.

    In 2005 I stayed at a motel in Palm Springs, with some friends, and in 2006 and 2007 we rented a house. However, these friends won't be able to come next year, and I don't want to pay ludicrous prices for a hotel, and I cannot afford a house alone.

    So I have been considering my options and, bizarrely, camping somehow feels like an extremely tempting option. There was something wonderful about the whole experience in 2004, and that was still my favourite Coachella by far. I loved the feeling of "conquering the heat" by surviving in the campsite, and meeting all the other campers, and, errr, bonding with them, and that experience is something I actually missed over the past 3 years. Despite feeling exhausted and broken and filthy and hot, I loved every second of that festival, and it genuinely changed my life.

    I am still undecided about what to do though. Argh. I DO love air con and showers.

    We are hiring a house that should hold around 8-10 people next year. I've got 6 definites and a couple of maybes so far, so we may have some room to spare. It's within walking distance of the site.

    I have not camped yet and may think about camping this year. It is a whole hell of a lot cheaper to camp, but the house is such a nice thing to come back to after a long ass day.
    I am going to get so blown to Cypress Hill while they play.

    2004 - Trailer Park - Quite stylish.
    2005 - Hotel
    2006 - Villa
    2007 - Villa

    I now drag so many people along that we've outgrown the villa!

    the only reason I am never going to camp is the fact that there is no shower places. I sneeze out so much dust when I am there and a shower always helps

    This is not true. There are showers in the camping lots.

    What if someone makes a crime in the tent?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Sure, but remember, it's not rape, it's sleep-sex.

    so im thinking about camping this year also. we went camping this past weekend and when i was putting away my tent i saw that the bag says tour tent. we wrote that on there after woodstock but never went to any shows that we could camp at besides coachella. never went for the 2 or 3 days so we never camped. but we are thinking about it this year. we'll see how it goes.

    Seriously Stef I think camping is THE way to go.I camped 4 nights this time and they do have a private shower plus semi-private showers plus extremely kind workers with hoses if you just need to cool off.Nothing like waking up at the campgrounds,stumbling over to get an excellently made Bloody Mary,not driving anywhere,and then Coachella Festival!

    have you ever been to the website www.coachella.com? it's full of nifty information including, in the camping section:
    Will there be free bathrooms/showers? Handicap accessible? Private?

    Yes, there will free bathrooms and free showers available. Separate M/F trailers (with individual privacy) and there will be handicap accesible facilities for both as well.
    Edit: they even posted a picture of the showers.

    Camping is the only way to experience Coachella as far as I'm concerned. Fuck showers, they had hoses set up last year and Sunday morning just having my dude spray me with a cold hose felt like getting baptized or some shit. New life and all that.

    I have come to this conclusion about staying in a hotel/house. Camping is the only way to FULLY experience Coachella. Staying in a hotel/house is like fucking using aluminum foil as a condom. Sure you're getting laid, but at the end, you feel unfulfilled. Camping at Coachella isn't for the timid. Its hot, you really do sleep for 4 hours the whole weekend and you have to pay an extravagant amount of money to get drunk (if you are to much of an idiot to figure out how to sneak in alcohol). Plus where else can you have a cheering wave at 3am threw out a campsite? Not lake cahuilla my friend. Camping makes the whole going into debt thing worth it.

    Camping was definitely amazing. Even in the ghetto of 2004.

    I camped 04-06, and stayed in a house this year. House was better for me by far.
