    Default Crashing Coachella last minute. Need advice.

    Hi there,
    it's my first Coachella, just got my ticket today for various reasons. Since camping is sold out, I need some advice on what my possible crashing options are.

    Are ppl nice enough to let you share their camping spot? (If they have enough room n separate tent)

    I am going by myself so far, which I have been told is highly unrecommended, is this true? I'm 20 yrs old. Chic. Not too strong hahah. Can put up a good fight. No hallucinogens, I think I am a nice person. I can get along with ppl pretty well and always break the ice. I am good at "reading" ppl and staying away from them rotten ones.



    Anybody with past experience in this situation?

    Since you're solo, your chances are better (because you'd be taking up less space). Wander into the campsite Thur or Fri with $20 and some beer and people may become pretty inviting. Good luck with your search.

    As sad as it is, the hotter you are the easier this is going to be for you.

    youll be fine. find someone with a canopy and ask them if you can sleep under it. coachella has the nicest population in the world ( other than certain raves )

    Fact.

    Hence, we already know that you are not hot. If you were, a guy you know would have already agreed to go with you.

    I'm in a similar siutation but I have friends that already reserved a camping spot. Does anybody know if they limit the number of tents/people allowed at each site?

    Basically, if there's room for my tent can I crash my buddies site or will we have to share one tent?

    Sorry Brah, but the FAQ clearly says one tent per site.

    Actually I just found this here on the FAQ:

    Car Camping spots are 10’x30’(General Camping 10x30). Your car and as many people or tents you can fit into that spot (as long as it’s not against the rules) is fine with us. Please note, car camping is limited.

    I figure that means you can put more than one tent....

    Actually there's a few threads on here full of people that will tell you going alone is the best way to do it. Especially if you're an outgoing person. I'm going alone this year and am both nervous and excited about it, but reading other people's stories have put my mind at ease quite a bit. Of course being a young girl means you'll have be extra cautious so trust your instincts.

    Wow, it is amazing what happens when one acutally reads the FAQ, rather than posting a question that has already been answered 100 times.
