    Default Camping restriction

    Posted this in another thread but i'm looking for a quick answer. Me and a few mates are flying over from Scotland to Coachella and are hoping to crash in the camping area. The only problem is one of them is under 18 and with no contacts in the US finding an alternative place to stay would be bitch. I was wondering how tight the security are on age checks? The guy concerned looks pretty old for his age defo +18. Help appreciated

    They definitely check IDs at the campground. Your friend is going to have to find someplace else to crash.

    I'm sure any photo ID/passport would work.

    They will check id's at the campground. If you have the means, I suggest getting him a fake ID in your country because the security guard here will have no clue about your I'd's in Scotland. And they wont expect your passport. You tell them you left it safe in Los Angeles where you flew into. Good luck!!

    Just get a valid "fake" id. I'm sure there is someone around where you live who looks like this guy.

    Valid fake ID of a drivers licence would be best (someone that looks the same)

    If your coming from Scotland, obviously your going to have your passport aren't you, theres no way around having to take that to the festival site!

    Hey, I did a post on this earlier, but it died pretty quick lol.

    My cousin and I are also comming from the UK (from London) but i'm 17 and he's over 21 and we're having a hiccup on finding a place to camp - we're currently looking into some off-site campsites.

    Just wondering since we're all comming from the UK, you wanna have a search around together or just hook up ?

    I've private messaged your my MSN if you wanna chat about it etc
