    It's kinda up in the air.

    Gonna have atleast $400 for 2 people but I will spend less if they allow grills in the camp site.

    Food is the biggie... How many $5 slices of spicy pie, $8 philly cheese steaks, and $8 Heinekins are you gonna have over the course of the weekend? That stuff will nickel and dime you to death quick.

    I'll probably bring $400 just to be safe... and hope I maybe spend half of it...

    if all goes according to plan then about $750 for the both of us. Of course $320 is going to go to weed. so about $430 for food and a t-shirt that i will regret buying later because i see something better. I hope to not have to worry about food inside too much since we can bring a grill. so maybe coachella wont break me this time.

    since we're allowed to have grills that will save me at least $30 a day on food alone. and since we're allowed to have 1 case of beer per person, that will last me the whole weekend.

    i'm budgeting $25 a day.

    $100 a day is more than enough. Most of my money is spent on water and maybe 2 meals a day. I don't buy merch and I always come back with extra money.

    Duuuuuuuuuuude.... where the eff are you staying? Palm Springs is where it's at, 20 min. drive, 85/night! I guess the drive is a little much if you're planning on being impaired.

    Inside the festival
    $12/day for water (double that if they'ren't doing the free refills Coachella Water Bottle)
    $23/day for food (one full meal, acai bowl, snack)
    $0/day for beer

    Camping
    $8/day for fresh fruit for breakfast
    $7/day for ice refills (cost could be shared amongst friends)

    Total
    ($35 + $15)/day x 3 days + $15 (camping Monday morning) = $165


    This assumes I bring a good deal of food, snacks and beverages to my camping spot for breakfast and lunch and after show eating/drinking.

    I'll probably bring more than that just in case and because I am likely to want a shirt or two.

    Yeah, i'm confused about $10 for a refill on water myself. I thought you purchased the bottle and re-fills were either free or $1.

    If i remember... you purchase the coachella bottle, re-fills were free... if you bring your own re-fillable one, they cost a dollar... cheap as hell.

    and even if you're not camping, you can pack your dinner and leave it in your car. Sure it's a walk, but it saves you 10 bucks a day.

    They're standing in the heat all day dealing with assholes, they probably aren't getting paid much, and they're giving me something for free. Plus, any tips they receive have to be split up amongst everyone. Geez, didn't any of you ever work in the service industry?

    Bottom line is I can afford to give them $1 when they do something for me that I'm not paying for. If you can't, than I guess you shouldn't include it in your budget.

    shaded heat mind you... and didn't they have misters or somethin in there? and they probably don't work the entire day and probably DO get to spend whatever part of the day they have left inside the festival checking out music...(emphasis on probably) i wouldn't be too bummed out if i didn't get tips.

    but you make a good point...

    Most my money went to gas since I drove alone (nobody to split the road trip from San Antonio, TX -> Indio, CA). This year I'm driving with someone so hopefully I'll have a bit more to spend...

    No, they didn't have misters. That would have been nice considering the line.

    I forgot about gas too; that was pricey. I think probably close to $80 for gas. But that's between the two of us.

    I'm thinking I'll bring about $450 for the whole weekend. Hope it's enough.

    Plus $50 for gas money each way.
