    Default Keeping Drinks Cold???

    I'm wondering what's a good strategy to keep the cooler going for booze and other essentials during the festival? Is there an Ice dispenser? First Coachella ever...pretty effin' stoked!

    The general store sells ice. It's overpriced.

    There's a shuttle to Ralph's. Ralph's sells ice. You take the shuttle and bring it back.

    Some of it will melt along the way.

    This weekend, I got ice on Friday morning and it lasted the whole weekend. It was colder this weekend than it will be next weekend; you may have to go more often.

    use dry ice! it'll stay cold for the better part of the weekend if you keep it out of the sun and inside of a well insulated cooler. just google it to find a place in your area that sells it.

    Yep, it's gonna be a typical bag of ice per day Coachella again. I have budgeted for this...

    ice is generally a good option for a cooler. dry ice works good but all your shit might freeze solid... you could keep a cooler w/ dry ice, and cubed ice it it, and add to the food/drink cooler whenever necessary.

    Dry ice is hit and miss. Nothing misses like that drink that you open and find it frozen solid.
