Thread: hope it's easier to leave parking area this time

    Default hope it's easier to leave parking area this time

    because last year I stayed off sight,
    and getting out of the parking took seriously 2 hours.
    the first night was the worst, no sort of staff trying to direct all these cars out.
    I hope they are better organized in that aspect this year.

    This year it could be faster, but thats up to you. In order to leave the lot you will have to answer 3 riddles.

    yeah, in 07 we stayed at the deluxe inn... and it took us about two hours to get there, even though it's like 20 minutes from the polo grounds.

    I've read lots of people saying "You have to know what you're doing with the parking". Well I don't, I've never been to Coachella... or Indio... or California! I'm super excited for the festival but please...

    Someone tell me what's the deal with parking, DOs and DON'Ts from those of you who know would be reallllly appreciated. Thanks!!

    i think parking will be easier this time around because of the possibility of people heading to the campsite to kick it for a bit... but that's just me... they should give a time of when they will start towing cars...

    Asking for this in a public forum is dangerous. Let's say, for instance, that one secret was to get there early, park in the lots located elsewhere than the gridlocked-for-hours main lot entrance, and leave after one song into the encore of whoever is playing last one the main stage's set. Well then EVERYONE would do that, the traffic would be worse than ever and the advantage would be lost.

    The whole parking clusterfuck is just how it goes at events like this. I mean, you get thousands of cars in "parking lots" with no defined spaces or lanes, and everyone's got to funnel to one exit. It's just not going to go as smoothly as anyone wants it to.

    If it's like Phish....it will be MUCH easier getting in and getting out. Besides the campers not being able to drive much, the roads are better and I predict it will be better organized.
