    Default Car Camping question

    Okay, this may be a question that's already been answered A MILLION times, but I'm new to this so just help me out...

    If I get a car camping pass am I able to leave the Coachella site and venture out, without my car of course, or do I have to stay in a confined area with my car and my tent during the hours the concert ins't up and running?

    Thanks

    You can venture out without your car - go for a run, take the shuttle into town, etc.

    I would think you're free to leave at your own discretion, provided your car stays there. I mean they even have supermarket shuttles that take you offsite to do shopping, if necessary.

    Fuck. Yes. I am trying to add one, and I'm freaked out beyond belief. Our plans to rent a place fell through and now I'm scrambling. What a total pain in my ass.

    Are you gonna login and wait on standby or calling Frontgate directly? I was lucky enough to buy car camping back in June but friends of mine need to add car camping. I was told by Frontgate to call in on Friday.

    Earlier this week they were allowing you to add to your order prior to the the on-sale date as long as you had an existing order, but they changed it....

    Yeah my friends tried calling in this week to add on as well. They were all told that there was only a limited amount of car camping available to add on and would have to try to add them on Friday. Good luck everyone!

    If you mean leave with your car, no. Not from car camping. I think cars were allowed to leave from the companion lots between certain hours but that's not the case this year.

    Stupid question probably: So I'm going with a friend. One of us got the car camping and the other one just the regular GA Pass with the intention of splitting the car camping pass cost. It was my understanding that as long as one person has the pass in the car, the GA ticket gives you access to the camp grounds. Or do I need something extra as well.

    no, you're fine. You can pack as many people onto your campsite as you wish, the only rule is 1 car and 1 car only. So your friends can't drive in with you and try to fit two cars into the spot. But, you can definitely have people come meet you and crash at your campsite with you.

    I think you're fine. Technically the camping pass is linked to your friend's ticket but assuming you're arriving together that's not a problem. You only need a festival wristband to enter the campground, just like last year.
