This question is being thrown around a lot but are the set times posted just for weekend 1 or are they also for weekend 2?
Serious question.... Im staying in a hotel, where do I park when going to Coachella?
What happens if they find stuff on ya during the search getting entrance into the festival, do they just throw it all away?or whisk you off to jail
Depends if you're a dick about it, and whether the security chooses to be a dick about it.
how well do they search your cars before car camping
totally depends. Some people get their cars torn apart, some get waved by.
but will they on roll a sleeping bag that kinda stuff
hve you ever hidden anything if so where?
The thing that everybody needs to understand is that any activity at the festival at all that involves interacting with security guards is going to have a lot of variability. there are are MANY security guards with different levels of intelligence, attention to detail, ability to give a shit, etc, and other variances like time of day, energy, whether it's dark or light out, size of the crowd, the weather, etc are all going to have an effect on how thorough you get searched and how they decide to act upon finding certain items.
alright thanks makes sense
Drinkey is right. But on the other hand, how you present yourself and interact with security will also always impact how they initially react to you. Never hurts to smile and be polite.
10/18-19: Treasure Island Music Festival
10/22: Roman Flugel @ f8
10/25: Moodymann @ PW
11/20: The Drive by Truckers, Sturgill Simpson @ The Fillmore
Do cars ever get searched on their way into the day parking?
alright thanks alot
no they dont get searched there you just park
I noticed in 2010 that when I went into the festival dressed in neon raver clothes, the security searched my person and my fannypack EXTENSIVELY, so take how you dress into consideration. (On the upside, they didn't find my stash!)
do they search you as well when you are checking into car camping....im not planning on having anything on me ...but it would be nice to know
The only advice I can give is: do not wear a marijuana leaf bandana through the security checkpoint.
They do search you going into car camping. I've been waved through twice (like we could have had a live animal in the car and they wouldn't have found it) right next to people who are having their entire car turned inside-out. It really depends. Last year the security lady looked briefly in our car and trunk, waved us through and then stopped us immediately to say "You know, in Jamaica you can party without this search nonsense" and then told us to have a good time.
alright thanks ill just be smart about it
what time will car camping open friday morning?
11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena
Is there anywhere a girl can go to do their hair? I was thinking of going to the cell phone charging stations, but would they let me?
DO YOU KNOW ANYONE THAT NEEDS TO PURCHASE A WEEKEND ONE TENNIS GARDEN SHUTTLE PASS?
Camping - We have friends who have a camping pass and arrive before us. We DO NOT have camping passes. Will we be let in the gates with just GA tickets and be able to join up with them to camp or does every individula need thier own seperate camping pass?
