    According to the Onsite Camping FAQ, the camp ground store does sell tents. As to how much they cost and how many they will have ...? There was also a new option this year - Camping Travel packages http://www.coachella.com/visitors/campingtravel Not sure what if any are left. These packages include tickets.

    Lots of good info here http://www.coachella.com/visitors/onsite-camping

    FYI there is a place at the campground you can donate unwanted tents, coolers, etc. when you leave. They distribute them to groups working with homeless people.

    Dani said back in January, the week after they went on sale, that there were something like 10 or so left. I'd assume that they are totally sold out now.

    There's a SuperTarget in Indio and a Walmart in LaQuinta. The festival takes place in Indio; the city of Coachella is a little further east and south. Just fyi.

    Yeah, everyone acts like it is in the middle of nowhere, but, there are quite alot of stores in the vicinity...

    nothing in walking distance per se, but you can buy pretty much anything you want within a 10 mile radius...

    and i really do mean anything you want...

    Yes, you can buy camping gear really cheaply at somewhere like Walmart or Target, if you don't have space to carry it on your flight. You can donate it at the end of the festival.

    Even better, you can just rent the gear when you get to Los Angeles. I know that these stores rent, probably others too:

    REI
    Sport Chalet
