    Your best bet is probably to come up with an incentive (food, beer, money, whatever) and try to make arrangements with someone who has extra room ahead of time. If you have something you can bring (a canopy or camp stove or something) that someone else doesn't have, you're more likely to be a desirable addition to a camp spot.

    As it gets closer to the event I think lots of people "adopt" other people to their campsite. We adopted 4 last year and will adopt this year depending on who in our group gets tickets in time. Keep checking here and you could very well get a spot. Don't have 4 people that need a spot, the less people you need space for the better. There are all different kinds of people that go to Coachella, old, young, gansta, prep, raver, rocker....etc. Be cool to all and you will find a spot. Maybe we can help you out if we have space! Won't know for a while how many of the planned members of our group actually get tickets...that depends on when they sell out but we hopefully can share some of our very camping space:-)

    I think you will be ok. Last year me and my 2 friends just showed up with our gear and looked around for about 10 min and found a spot with some extra room (in the car camping area). The ppl there were super nice and didnt even ask for anything in return (still smoked them out though).
    And this is at about 2AM Friday morning

    Thanks for starting this thread and for all the tips from you other cool peeps. 2 years ago I had no problem buying my pass and camping ticket...in Feb. Last year I bought my camping pass first, but then ended up not being able to afford going to the festival. This year....completely caught me by surprise. For sure the camping was half the experience and some of the antics there are what I remember more than some of the music. I was super bummed about camping being sold out and wondering if it was even worth it, but now I have hope as I am ONE! Thanks again and hope to see you there at the camp.

    If anyone has done this before, what do you do about extra cars? Considering there's no overnight parking and companion passes are sold out... are you guys just arriving by plane?

    How many tents/people can realistically fit into a tent camping space? I have a pass but at this point only 1 tent / 2 people to occupy it.

    6 people or 6 tents? Also, I'm asking about tent camping (not car camping), so the size of my car (truck) doesn't matter, right?

    Thanks for your reply.

    My car spot is a 10X30. If you can fit a car and 6 tents in then i'm doing it wrong.

    i believe you are needing a companion parking pass which can be bought by calling ticketmaster, though i have heard on this board they don't call them companion parking passes. they should know what you're needing though i think.

    Me and two other friends are trying to find a place to camp on grounds as well. We'll probably only have two tents ( if that) and we're willing to pay in food, booze, camping supplies , money etc. If any of you have any open space PM me and let me know. This is our first year and we're going to make the most out of it either way lol but we'd like to stay on site for those 3 days. Driving down from Washington so we'd like to limit any driving outside of the drive down to Coachella. Thanks!

    Ps: If by some random act of fate your from w.a and need a ride down we'd be up for carpooling down in exchange for a nite or two of lodgings....and if its any consolation Ive got a portable coffee machine..I hear good coffee is hard to come by at coachella..*shrug. lol

    Last year I woke up Saturday and found someone sleeping under my car. We fed him breakfast and he hung around into the afternoon. My neighbors let someone pitch a tent on a free patch in their spot.

    Sadly, I didn't get a camping ticket before they sold out, and I'm not sure if I'm going to attend if I can't camp.
    Even though I look it, I'm not a cop.
