    Default How easy is it to bribe the wristband dudes or sneak in?

    I guess my questions have changed...

    How exactly does the wristband thing work? How do you get into the campsite?

    Has anybody snuck in before? or know a guy who knows a guy?

    This is my first time going to Coachella and it's going to be AMAZING, just trying to share the love with some of my broke friends, so try to keep the flames to yourself. Thanks!

    Weirdest question ever

    I highly doubt they're gonna use some sort of wristband that you can go find in a store and buy. Just a thought

    You do realize your friends need festival tickets to get into the campground, right?

    Once again, tone/sense of humor is lost on the internet. Maybe a smiley would have helped. I'm having trouble getting a hold of a ticket. But I got some ideas on how to make that money...

    Yeah but if they don't really check and that's all you need to get it in, it could easily be done.

    Okay thank you for the information. So a wristband won't cut it then? grr...

    Good point, this isn't the best place to ask for ideas... a better question is if anyone has any experience, is it worth the effort?

    Yes, I'm entering them and telling everyone to as well! One day I will be able to afford to buy all of my friends' tickets for them... that'll be the day.

    They're not that expensive, really. Prostitue yourself. If you're not a diehard enough fan to come up with the money, you dont deserve to go

    I bet if you bribe them approx. $280, they'll give you a wristband.

    What are you like 13? The idiocy you've displayed in your posts has led me to believe so. Just go ask mommy and daddy and maybe just maybe they'll raise your allowence.

    Oh, Trevor. Please go read a book so you can understand that the written word existed long before the internet and the ability to throw in a "smiley" to convey humor. The good Dr. is doing just fine sans emoticons.

    I am sure there are always ways to sneak in and yes there is always a security guard who might be open to bribes-or just might not care. But really is it worth it?
    Yes they are going to check wristbands-given that a main gate involves walking past several layers of security you are not going to be able to bribe every guard. I would guess they will check bands twice. Given the guards are paired up and will probably be monitored.


    I mean logically, if you find a way in to the campsite what then are you going to do? Spend the next three days there? You can't leave because you might not get back in. You then have to be able to get in to the event arena.

    Just buy a ticket!

    Trevor, don't listen to these dickweeds. They're all full of shit and giving you a hard time.

    I've been coming to Coachella since '04. '04 was the only year I ever actually paid money for a ticket though. It's so freakin' easy to bribe your way in. The people scanning the tickets are suffering in this economy like everyone else. Probably worse than everyone else, that's why they're scanning tickets. Do what I do, pat around and say "i Can't find my ticket", then reach into your pocket and pull out a $50 and slip it to the guy and say "Oh here it is". In the past I've done that and just walked in and the guy let me go. This year you'd have to hold your arm out for a wristband, which is even better cuz that means you only have to do it once rather than three times.

    Don't be an idiot and overspend on an actual ticket. Unless you're rolling in dough.

    I once gave a security guard by the main stage 20 bucks and he let me walk into the VIP area which wasn't all that impressive. However I got ballsy (drunk) and walked under the stage with all the sound/light guys and got to sit on the side of the stage and watch Portishead. True Story.

    Save some money! Put a tent up in a garden, music on some speakers. You don't need a trip to Indio to get that 'experience'.
