    As stated in the FAQ:
    Water? And/or how much is water?
    Bottled water will be sold for only $2 (same price since 1999) at numerous vendor locations. Also there will be water fountains. Yes you can bring an empty refillable bottle (no metal).

    The lines for the water fountains are gonna suck, but its cool. Just fill up like 2-3 bottles each time and you'll only have to go a couple times a day.

    diyam. i really liked the idea of buying that little blue bottle from last year and just refilling as needed throughout the day. it was a perfect size.

    so for sure no refillable stations?

    There will be water fountains (see the bit from the FAQ that FEELS quoted) but they will not be like the purified water dispensing stations they've had the past two years. They will be room temperature tap water and there will be lines. It's free (and no one to tip) but it will take time.

    If there was another $10 water bottle sale (for free refill), we should be allowed to bring previous year's coachella water bottles...thinking green and all...but it seems to be a moot point now.

    Yet another thing to think of trying to sneak in...water bottles ftl.

    how do you know?
    I feel like its been a successful idea over the last 2 years and it really helps eliminate waste from water bottles and is "green". Why would they stop doing it?

    yeah. that was an oasis last year, ( that and the smoothie tent) b/c i drink alot of water. i don't see why they would take it away if they are truly committed to less waste.

    I bet it was a big hassle, expensive and I know for sure a lot of people complained about every aspect and easily cheated the system. Doesn't sound particularly successful to me.

    I know because Dani aka Psychic Friend aka the forum administrator aka Goldenvoice employee said so in some of the earlier threads.

    Also, there was an entire page on the site for the water program for the last two years and it's absent this year

    honestly if you walk in with a sealed water bottle in hand, you have a 40% chance of it not being confiscated. reuse said bottle.

    saturday and sunday is when the security gets pretty relaxed with sealed water

    talk to the police/city, believe it is them who made the decision. or may have been the insurance carrier. memory is a little fuzzy. could have been some of the artists, too. someone other than gv nixed it, though, don't be mad at them.

    The special bottle is already filled & sealed, slightly lukewarm and no refills. But still only $2.
