    Default Does everyone need a camping wristband for one car/spot/tent?

    I remember last year they gave you a green wristband. I just need to know if my girlfriend and I both need passes. I assume?

    One camping/car pass is good for the person driving as well as those riding with him /her in his/her vehicle. In order to receive a camping pass/wrist band, you will more than likely also need to purchase a Coachella wrist band/ticket.

    i am wondering if they will even have camping wristbands this year, especially since a festival pass is required to be able to camp in the first place.

    I'm wondering too....I'm sure they will have some kind of camping wrist band to identify you from those not camping.
    A festival pass will only get you into the festival. If you want to camp, you need to have a camping/car pass or you need ride in with someone who has purchased a camping/car pass. Remember, a camping/car pass is good for 1 vehicle, its driver and those riding in that vehicle.

    don't think that is true, from the camping faq:
    "Every car entering the Car Camping area must have (1) Car Camping spot ticket to enter. In addition, everyone entering Car camping is required to have a festival ticket."

    to me it sounds like your car may get a pass and they will check everyone's festival tickets and put you wristband on when you come in, which will be good for everything, camping and festival entrance.

    It really sounds like you only need the camping pass to get the car in. That means the campgrounds are fair game. Yikes!

    yup:
    "Can I bring my friends into camp?

    Sure, as long as everyone has a festival ticket you can have them come to your camping spot."

    Isn't that similar to what I tried to explain?

    i don't think there will be a separate camping wristband since anyone with a festival pass is allowed into the campgrounds. not like they are going to be driving around after a certain hour kicking out people with only a festival pass.

    OK. I give up trying to explain. I'm a dumb ass and I don't know what the fuck I'm talking about . Besides, I'm not on GV's payroll, I don't get paid to debate or argue and it's not my problem.
    Dani or someone from GV will need to explain this.
    It only takes a tiny bit of common sense to figure this out.

    The thing is, most of us "pricks" already answered these questions nicely at one point or another, or at lease politely pointed people in the right direction. Around about the 50th time in a week, people start to snap.

    EDIT- Plus, there's the whole thing where the festival organizers actually go to the trouble of making a website and putting information on it, which most people refuse to read.
