    I don't no what you do with 400 dollars guys.

    that reminds me of some tv show where .......hmmmm...whats her face? ...rachel ray goes on vacation somewhere and has all this fun and eats good food without going over 40 dollas a day...are you fucking here? or her child or something?.....i`d give it to her

    Depends if you are talking just during the day at the show or total cash? Not to be to pickey on it but i think I took $300 last year and probably spent $275 at the show alone between water, food, beer, and merch but I also ate breakfast at the hotel in the morning and we ate lunch before getting to the show.

    $100 a day is a safe bet. Eat well, drink plenty, and maybe a shirt or two.

    Also, to save money on water last year, I got a camelback that was also a backpack, and just put the dispensing straw inside of it in the back pocket, then just refilled it at the water fountain all day long. Its worth a shot, and if they happen to find the bladder and give you shit, toss it out, those things aren't too cheap to replace. A guard even saw it one day and didn't mind one bit. We gotta drink water ya know. Coachella is the only festival Ive ever been to to flat out say NO Camelbacks, but IMO that is just down-right ridiculous. At least say empty ones.

    $50/day should be more than enough unless you plan on getting hammered at coachella.

    I brought $300 in the past when it was a 2-day fest and maybe had a little bit left over at the end. That covered water, food, merch (shirts and the occasional cd at the tower store) - had a couple cocktails at the clubhouse the night before the festival. Only had water from that point on, I think drinking beer in that kind of heat is just silly, and I hate beer anyway. Keep in mind this also accounted for cab rides to and from LAX/Greyhound Station and Greyhound Station/Empire Polo Field. I think $100 per day is probably a decent amount for most people. It all depends on how much $7 beer and $30+ shirts you feel like buying. Water's only $2 but you will go through it relatively quickly, at least until the sun finally goes down. The 10-for-1 option sounds nice but honestly, unless you plan on doing absolutely nothing but looking for empty bottles all day long, it's not going to save you that much cash.

    How much are the t-shirts that have the festival lineup on the front?

    bring your own food and eat before and after each day, and then set aside 15-20 for food per day. bring your own water, and i'd say bring like 100 for merch, it'll get you at least 3 t-shirts and maybe a poster or something fun like that.

    Bring a piece of cardboard with a convincing story and you won't need to bring any money.

    I brought $100/day + $100 for incidentals then used my debit card in the Virgin Megastore tent. Found some good deals there, esp. on the Bjork Dualdisc Boxset.

    Unless you eat more than two times, i dont see how you can spend 50 dollars on food. 20 dollars for water is more than enough

    Based on past years

    15.00 Breakfast at Dennis (in the corner, plus they have a restroom
    10.00 Six Pack before go in
    15.00 Lunch (w/soda)
    16.00 2 Beers w/ 2 tip
    12.00 Water and Frozen Lemonade
    15.00 Dinner
    16.00 2 Beers

    99.00 /day - Beer budget may vary from 16.00 - 150.00 depending on the mood, company, bands playing, heat, so I'm taking at least $400 for the weekend.

    For the merchandise I usually buy it from Coachella Online Store, I think it's cheaper and I definetely don't want to be carrying it around.

    Last year I brought $200 but came home with $25 leftover. But that $175 included gas, in n out, cheap kwikemart sunglasses. Somehow I spent more in previous years.

    I forgot how much I spent in 2006 and last year. But definitely I brought at least $400 cash every time I go to any festival.

    * I bought and drank more water per day in 2007 than 2006.

    * I used cc for merch (I always buy official or any cool looking Coachella shirt) and spent some leftover $$$ at the airport restaurants not accepting cc.

    * Some vendors selling merch are not accepting cc

    I always get a Coachella one for my wife whether she goes or not (usually not) I always end up with 2-4 band ones. Just bring cargo shorts to carry them in.

    I did about 7-10 bottles of liquid a day, mostly water - some gatorade.

    if they have the recycling again this year, you could hustle and save your water money which means more money for beer.
