    Default International ID

    Just wondering what the ID situation is at Coachella? I'm over 21, I have my Australian driver's licence with me, but I've run into issues using it before because it's a provisional licence from a tiny state that nobody has ever heard of. I also have two student IDs (one from home, one from here).. should I bring my passport, just to be on the safe side? I'd really prefer not too, because if I lose it I'm in for a whole world of horrible, but I will if I must.

    Student IDs generally don't have birthdates on them, so they're no good.

    Passport is the surefire way to go. You'd really only need i the first day I think (i don't recall getting carded after already having my wristband on, but I suppose it's possible).

    One of these money belts would be a good safe way to store it and not worry about

    When I was 13 my friends and I got into an R rated movie as one of our friends had a french ID on him (which the lady at the counter didnt realize wasnt an ID stating he was of legal age, but rather was just a french citizen)

    True story!

    Yeah couple of buddies from NZ have awful probs if they forget their passports. They won't accept driving licenses, it is kinda funny to hear the rejections 'it looks fake I don't of a New Zealand in Canada'.
