    Default after festival antics

    Are there any bars/clubs/parks we can all carry on the merrymaking after the festival finishes each night?

    Cheers

    Campgrounds are the easiest access afterparty.

    Roller rinks/showers,people passed out in their tents so you can sneak in and spoon them/etc

    Indeed.

    Are you residing and commuting from off site? If so the parking lot will be your only other source of entertainment between 1AM (~when festival ends) and 2 something as you wait in traffic. There will be honking competitions, the game of "chicken", dust inhalation, Automobile DJ sets, impromptu chanting from the likes of Justice or Duck Sauce, dance offs, pretty ladies on top of cars, drugs being offered and solicited.

    Even if you take a shuttle, most things will be closing down by the time you get there except for several casinos off the I-10 which remain open 24/7 and a few select afterparties which I'm not cool enough to know about.

    Yea we have a few hotels between our group, but 1am just seems a bit early to head home. All the above mentioned sounds like a laugh and im sure we'll be getting well involved.
    Im particularly fond of honking comps....
    Will we be able to walk around the campsites even if we're not camping then?

    But you can't stay in the campground all night. I don't know what the time period is, but you shouldn't lollygag for too long in the campground or your car could get towed.

    The campgrounds are where to be, the Thursday night party there is almost as cool as the festival itself. So much excitement in the air. The other evenings though, its as tame/crazy as you want it to be.

    While partying in the campgrounds IS awesome. I am all for getting a decent amount of rest and then going balls out all day long on the Polo fields. From experience my favorite years have been the ones where I get to sleep by 2. Otherwise, you are just asking for a zombied out Sunday. The best party in the campgrounds is always the last night anyways, stay up til the sun comes up then. I would rather save most of my energy for inside the festival.

    Thursday and Sunday nights in car camping are the craziest things I've ever been to, reminds me of Mardi Gras except with that Coachella magic. Honestly I probably had more fun car camping then in the venue, people walking into our site just because we were playing Beach House, sharing our absinthe with all our neighbors, our other neighbor getting us acid from her friend, people stopping me to tell me "Wilco rocks" based on my t-shirt. I've never met so many friendly, happy, excited people in one place especially Thursday night.

    I missed out on this last year because I was way too tired after the festival to party. I won't make the same mistake this year.

    So we're staying in a hotel this year but have a ton of friends that are camping. We plan on getting to the Day Parking area everyday around 12 then partying with our friends in the camping area until we go inside, then partying with them after the festival too. How late into the night can we be parked in the Day Parking after the festival before we get towed??
