    Default Eating at Coachella.

    Hello, I am wondering, how much should I put aside to eat at Coachella. My intentions are to eat from the Food Trucks, the Breakfast Buffet, and Farmers Market. How much should that run me for 4 days?

    Are you a big eater?

    It really varies - I can live on a $6 slice of Spicy Pie and $5 pretzel each day if I have snacks in camp, but spend $20 a day on water/lemonade (w/some free water refills.) If you are going to eat 3 meals then a minimum of $30 a day for food (and probably more) but don't forget to plan for water.

    I am planning on two meals a day, hearty breakfast, evening lite dinner to prepare for the long night.

    Bring an empty container to refill at the water stations inside the fest. Save maybe $10/day on water you would've bought (~5 bottles per day is not unheard of).

    Can you bring any kind of empty container in or does it have to be an empty $2 bottle that was bought?

    You can bring in empty sports bottles and stuff like that. No glass or metal from I recall.

    The newly posted interactive maps state:
    Water Refill Station - Fill any empty container with free drinking water in any our four Refill Stations.

    I only count three on the map, but i'm blind as a bat.

    *CORRECTION*
    The 4th free refill station is in Car Camping Lot 8.
