    Default Thursday arrival, but not camping...

    My group originally planned on RV camping, so we have a flight arriving Thursday morning. Have a hotel booked for Thurs-Sun night in Indio.

    Since a festival ticket allows you into the campgrounds...we thought it would be cool to participate in some of the Thursday camping/early arrival festivities, if at all possible.

    If this works, what is the best way? Park near the festival somewhere, just for the day? Will the free on-site parking lots be open on Thursday?

    We discussed buying a car camping spot, and leaving early (since we don't need the actual camping spot for any nights). But we don't want to cause a problem with having to flag down security and creating a hassle of leaving early (since it won't be an emergency situation).


    Otherwise I suppose we could see the picturesque town of Indio (ha ha), or check out Joshua Tree or Palm Springs for the day.

    Thoughts? Thanks

    Others can weigh in, but I would be very surprised if you could get into the campgrounds Thursday night if you are not a camper.

    My suggestion would be to go down to the Salton Sea and enjoy the nightlife. I hear it's rocking.

    take a taxi, you'll be able to get into the campgrounds assuming you already have purchased festival passes?

    If you're attending the festival then you can get into camping. It's not about having a camping pass this year, it's about having a festival pass. As long as you have that you should be fine.

    right but the regular day parking lots are not open until the festival. so they would have to get ride there to get in.

    Buy a car camping spot and park next to us, I will flag down security to have them let you out. It would be no problem at all.
