    Default Showing Up Friday Morning to Campsite

    There are about 8 of us camping on site and we're not gonna get there until friday at about noon... are we fucked? never camped at coachella before and i was just wondering if there will be any good spots or if the lineups will be crazy or any of that stuff?
    Sorry if this has been asked before, maybe just paste the link.

    Yes you are fucked. You might as well just forget going to the fest at all.
    You are in luck though. Just contact DeltaChi, he will refund your full ticket price if you mail him your tickets.

    I wouldn't say you're TOTALLY fucked. You are a bit fucked though. I've never been, but I have a feeling you're gonna miss a good chunk of the friday shows.

    Alright, alright last year when it was 2 days we got there at like 11:45 parked the car waited in line for camping, set up our tent and mde it into the festival by 1:45. It took about 45 min. to set up the tent. A half hour in each of the lines.

    YOu got nothing to worry about.

    You also get to use the campers' entrance line which is shorter than the main line to get in.

    You're not fucked, but leave EARLY on Friday. Traffic will fucking suck. I made the mistake of leaving LA around 11 on Saturday last year and we didn't get in to the venue until practically nightfall, although we didn't want to see too much that day anyway. But you'll still be able to get a camping spot and everything. It's not like there's that much to miss between 12 and 3 anyway--it's hotter than fuck.

    Yeah if we were at Glastonbruy.



    And I say leave early early in the mornign Friday if you can. You have to park, move your gear, get searched , check in and then be able to set up camp. So it will take time. This is why the camp site opens up on THURSDAY.

    So campsite opens Thursday at 5pm right? So is it the earlier you arrive the closer to the camper entrance you are?
    And how early in the day do people line up on Thursday to get in?

    Well, in 05 and 06 there wasn't a substantial line until around 8pm, but in 2004 there was always a 1.5-3 hour line. Camp opened earlier in 05 and 06 than 04 and this year, so at 5pm Thursday there will surely be a line. Hopefully it won't be that bad since a lot of people seem to be arriving on Friday.

    The important thing is the schedule of set times. If nobody you want to see is playing until 4pm, then you can take your time, but if you want to see bands playing earlier than that, you're already prepared to be there by then.

    In my experience, the earlier you get there the further away from the entrance you'll be assigned. They seem to start assigning from the back left (as you look at the campground from the entrance) and fill in towards the entrance. YMMV

    I'm fairly sure that they don't oversell the campground. That would just be ridiculous.

    Nah, you'll be fine. People waiting until Sunday to show up, however, will probably be sleeping next to the port-o-potties.
