    No outside food or drinks. They do a pretty basic pat down, look in your bag and feel it up. So I'd suggest putting in your shoe or undies.

    The question I have is how do I get my cameras in (One film and one digital) They are both what GV considers "professional". Day one I had trouble but by day 3 they didn't care.

    i think they are more concerned if you bring in a knife or gun. and glass because cleaning up broken glass sucks big time. and the animals that reside on the grounds for the rest of the 327 days could either step on or eat that glass/drugs. and glass bottles make excellent projectiles that you whip at any music act you strongly disapprove of..*cough* *Kanye West* *cough*

    I have an idea, why dont we NOT give out our tips publicly, seeing as any official can read all of this just as easily as we can.

    I don't think a canteen would pass inspection, but it would definitely need to be empty.

    Basically, if you are trying to bring in a water bottle, it should be 1)sealed or 2)one of the official souvenir refillable bottles. BUT...I don't see anything on the website about refillable bottles this year. Which is a shame.

    I'm more concerned about the 35 missing days now, than how someone gets their shit in the fest...

    They had free water fountains last year, unless GV decided to tear the pipes out of the ground I imagine they'll have them again, meaning that they will probably let you bring in empty containers to refill your water with. Just pick your friendly groper wisely, that's what worked best for me, go for friendly older women who seem to enjoy touching you as opposed to middle aged men who can't stand touching your ugly ass. Plus being talkative and friendly is a good way to distract them from really looking through your shit or patting you down, plus this may trick them into thinking that you're not a scruffy looking smuggler.

    Just share your open water, drugs, alcohol, knives, guns, etc. with the staff checking you in and they are totally chill and down and cool and your bro after that.

    Just don't be a dumbass about it.
    No weapons. PERIOD. because Coachella is cool like that and we don't need that bullshit.

    I honestly believe Goldenvoice doesn't mind drugs being inside, so long as they're not being used by amateurs and people aren't selling them.
    There are security and cops on location and I have personally seen people busted. (these people are usually trying to sell or are publicly flaunting it)
    Like other's have said, be discrete and remember the shit is still illegal, so don't be a dumbass.

    The first thing I do upon being searched is offer to show them my pee hole. They become so enamored with it and forget I have other holes made specifically for hiding stuff (butt-hole).
