    the wait is only like 10-20 mins. just bring an umbrella and chat with fellow campers.. i have a question.. why were the showers closed so early in the night? they were supposed to be open till 2 am.. too much raping?

    Wake up very early (sunrise) and there's no line...and if you can get back after the headliner each night there's no line, but they may close up early. After 8am, you are looking at 1hr min queues....if you don't mind missing the first couple sets, another good time is right when the festival gates open....kind of a waste imho...by the time you get inside the commune you are sweating like a pig and dirty again.

    Someone posted the wait could take an hour. Has this ever happened to anyone?

    Would the peak time be after midnight? Would the wait be longer?

    this past year was my first coachella and i had no problems at all with the shower situation. its true that the earlier you wake up the better chance of having no line. the longest it ever took was 30 mins tops and that was during the "peak" hours around 10/11 am. as far as the hour long wait goes i had no such experience, coachella does a good job of scattering showers around the campsite, and u may just have to scout around for a small line.

    p.s. my favorite part about showering at coachella was not using a towel and air drying on the 2 minute walk back to my tent.. gotta love that heat

    p.s.s. even if it is a long line theres really nothing to fret over. last year we would just talk amongst the other people and see who was stoked for which band and all that jazz.. that and somebody set up a slip'n'slide next to the line.. epic.

    What else are you going to be doing at 8am? Go with a friend and chat while you wait.

    I'm planning on using the showers at the end of the day, so around midnight. How will the lines be then? Sorry for the ridiculous questions; just like to be prepared

    I think this is actually the exact same topic that moved me to post for the first time.

    I've never had to wait for more than fifteen or twenty minutes, but it's a good idea to use your towel as a burnoose if you burn easily. The wait is usually made easier by the fact that you can chat with others in the line about the shows you've seen/are planning on seeing.

    This is wrong, the first couple of years camping was offered, this was true, not anymore, 20 mins max for me last year (maybe half hour, it seemed shorter though)

    I used them on Saturday last night year, I was a bit intoxicated, but there was no one in there, this was shortly before Prince ended, I think. I watched most of his set..

    If you don't want to spend an hour in line, an alternative is to use a hose that can be found behind some of the trailers. It's rarely in use, and it's awesome. I was lucky to have my swimsuit on me last year.

    it's never too early.

    i always find myself daydreaming for about a month after the line-up comes out about coachella and all the things i need to get... then i usually forget all about it until the week before.

    plus, you can NEVER have too many baby wipes/tissues. i was giving them out like halloween candy at the porta potties and people are sooooo amped on it.
