    I'm not sure, but I know hotels are very expensive, the area is high mantinance. La Quinta is very nice, which is close. Somewhere on this Coachella site is a list of hotels. I think people start booking early too. I stayed at my dad's last year, who lives in Palm Desert. Not a bad drive. I know someone who has a time share, within walking distance, who offered to let me stay there last year. May do that this next time, and just visit dad. I felt obligated to visit with him, and he didn't really understand the whole weekend. Can't wait . . . Lee

    Thanks for that, we camped last year and although it was amazing camping there I just couldnt sleep and was knackered by the end of it all...so in some ways it enhanced the experience but in others it wasnt so good...but still amazing if you know what I mean....oh I dont know!!!

    Nope-not unless you don't mind walking a few miles.

    After a day of Coachella, the parking lot is not even within walking distance.

    That's actually a pretty decent way to make some extra cash. Let people camp in your backyard and then provide transportation to and from each day......

    I know...I felt bad for your guys-you try to save parking hassles by getting dropped off and picked up and your reward is to have to walk ten miles to get there.

    I still am hoping for a park-and-ride option next year. I still think it can be done-regardless of the semantics. And I would totally do it--walk out, hop on a bus, and get an easy ride to your car? I'm in...

    I'm sure he considered that-it's not like everyone here doesn't know that's an option.

    He's 16-he can't.

    Indian Palms is pretty close. Expensive but very nice.

    Yeah, not this year. And they didn't even scan the camping tickets...we were told to just throw them in a box. That made the line move rather quickly. We arrived sometime between 5 and 6pm and the line stretched past the campsite concessions.

    People were blasting some really shitty music in the parking lot. I think it was Dave Matthews or Sublime. Or both.

    I didn't see hotels any where near walking distance... Unless of course walking a few miles in about 105 degree weather is cool.

    I know it doesn't even compare, but we had a little festival in SF this weekend, and they had a well organized park-and-ride shuttle. The lines were not even bad, they just constantly had 50-person buses pulling in. I'm not sure, though, how that scales to something the size of Coachella.

    Maybe we can blame the rage fans for that.

    There was a park and ride option at Vfest in baltimore. It seemed to have worked really well. was scared as all hell though because of the neighborhood.

    We used a park and ride option when we went to a fourth of july thingy in downtown tempe. There were probably 50k people down here. Not everyone used it of course, but it worked pretty well. You just had to walk to an offsite location but at least you didn't have to deal with the traffic once you were in your car.

    Coachella seriously needs some kind of shuttle system or park-and-ride or SOMETHING. Picking camping over staying in a hotel last year to avoid traffic was not the best decision.

    I'm not camping. I make plenty enough money to stay in an air conditioned room.

    I have to live 365 days a year in that fucking heat. I'm not spending my vacation sleeping in it.
