    Well first you're going to need a brain, as this is simple as fuck to calculate. We cant help you all that much other than ticket pricing as we dont know what kind of car you drive, where you'll be staying, how much of a fatass you are, etc etc.

    Stop being so fucking lazy and do the work yourself. If you cant do simple calculations you dont deserve to go to Coachella.

    There are a lot of variables there, especially with the hotel.

    I fly from Seattle and camp for a total of ~$1,000, usually a bit under...

    If you're trying to be frugal- Camp.

    It's not the most ideal conditions, but it's sooo much fun.

    You could realistically do it in? 600-700 if you're driving from Phoenix (ticket+camping pass+gas+food/merch)

    Trust me, I've done the calculations millions of times to make sure I can afford it. I'm really trying to get an estimate on hotel pricing. I thought I could afford it, but searching thru threads I see people saying they've spent over $1000+ for the festival.

    if you stay in a hotel yes... you can't have it both ways if you're staying in a hotel. You either pay for the comfort (and the subsequent traffic jams trying to leave the fest at night), or you rough it up and party in the campsite, knowing you're right next to the fest grounds... but save $$$

    Yeah, camping might be an option. I'm kinda leaning towards that since it'll save me a few bucks. Thanks for the reply.

    By the way thanks to all the people who actually help on this forum. It's tough to find answers on this forum when you're a first timer and every other member only posts smart ass replies. To those members, go fuck yourself fucking nerds. Not everyone spends their free time on a music festival forum year round.

    Yeah no prob, if u dont wana deal with em, do a lil searching first. Then ask around if u can't find anything.

    Default Re: Total Cost?

    Right. And depending on where I could find a cheap hotel, that'll lead to more gas money driving to the festival and back to the hotel everyday. If I can save a rough $300 for camping instead, I think I'll definetely consider doing it that way.

    Camping is going to be way cheaper. 59$ or whatever for the whole weekend which is a great deal. You can bring a grill and cook your own food which is deffinately way cheeper then buying food every day at vendors. Plus it's gunna be way funner

    Camping is far from roughing it. The showers are nice, the campsites keep relatively quiet and it really just makes so much more sense. You need to camp. As I stated earlier, just man up and do it. You will not regret.

    Quiet campsite? Nice showers? Really?
    If so, I'm in.
    I sound like an old man but really, that's how i would prefer it.
    I figured camping would be the exact opposite. Just noisy, not being able to sleep because it being too loud and just super crowded, bathrooms and showers always full.

    It'll be a bit rough at first with the campsite wars going on, but once my army takes Fort OP and Fort Awsome, things should settle down.

    until we instate the work camps of course.

    One caveat: you will be waking up early if your camping set up does not include any sort of shade. This is because it reaches the temperature of the surface of the sun by 7AM. But trust me when I say it's not that bad.

    Ok, so I'm reading up on the Camping page on the site for the first time since I'm now considering it. And, keep in mind I'm a noob, but obviously I'm gonna drive to the festival, so does that mean I'm obligated to buy a Car Camping Pass if I wanna camp? What's the difference between Tent Only Camping and Car Camping?
