    Well, you're not camping at Coachella if you're under age for starters. Believe the "off-site" campgrounds (such as Lake Cahuilla) allow alcohol but I've always camped onsite.

    There's several threads on here about people camping for the first time, and lots of info on the main website.

    yeah, when i was walking towards the entrance one year, one of them spotted me. California tigers must be some of the fastest cats, i swear. fortunately i escaped him. i would REALLY hate to be bitten by their poison fangs.

    stop spreading false rumors about our tigers...they absolutely are not poisonous!

    it is true though that they have developed quite the taste for human flesh
    '99-'11...

    when i was there in '07, one of the tigers burrowed underground and came out ON THE POLO FIELD! right by the do-lab! it's terrible, i'll never forget the look on the face of that poor girl as the tiger spat venom into her eyes and dragged her back underground to eat her...

    okay, now you're lying. we all know GV hires poachers to keep them out of the venue.

    well if it's not poison, then it must be acid or something. whatever it is, it sure was powerful enough to knock out anything it touches.

    they can spit that stuff far.

    yeah that's true, but GV never predicted that they would know how to BURROW! maybe this year they'll learn from their old mistakes and put something solid under the grass that the tigers can't dig through. we can only hope.

    i heard they're learning how to open doors too...
