Plus, I felt horrible for the campers on the end where the shuttle foot traffic was.
For the shuttle check - I usually like to drink a beer or two before going in the fest. If I have two cans in my bag when I get off the shuttle will they tell me to toss it?
When you make it to the security checkpoint they will, if it's anything like week 1. You'll have a little walk from the shutte to the checkpoint though, so you can drink them there.
Ya what the fuck is up with that? I can't bring in a few beers to hang out with my friends who are camping? But they could take the camping shuttle to Ralph's and get more beer? Fucking ridiculous.
No, don't, don't cut my hair, Ned loves my hair.
Yeah that's pretty damn lame. I'd rather drive in now or even walk around to a day parking entrance.
Security was so chill. My friend got in each day with a backpack full of beer.
i guess the moral of this story is safety in numbers
its really hard to generalize as we were searched at least twice going in for three days, so really its all over the map. i'd say more often than not they were pretty thorough
I thought security was pretty tight on Friday. Saturday the only cluster was at the shuttle gate. Mid-day Sunday I was inside in a flash. Both check points. and as for crotch grabbing, I unfortunately got a ball tap Friday and Saturday. Like someone else said just be patient and polite and all is good.
My group had zero problems, and they let us in with vodka each time, although they didn't find it.
security was very lax i thought. one of the days just got waved through, got a water bottle filled with Bacardi in on sunday.

who else did nitrous oxide with the kid at modeselektor , dont know HOW THE FUCK HE took THAT BIG ASS TANK IN, but at least he shared,best set ever! never thought i would do nitrous oxide at a set in coachella, lol alot of people were saying no too, but that shows that security was chill this year
Me & my nice nice made it past security every time this weekend, except for the very last fucking time I went through on Sunday. Got the hardcore security guard giving everyone the thorough pat-down, and then when he saw the mint case that had half a joint hidden in it, he asked me what was in it (after holding this fucking case in my hands every single time I previously went though), and I thought, this guy is gonna have me thrown UNDER the jail if I don't fess up.
So I told him, he made me throw it out, and I walked in. Thank god my ladyfriend was able to mule my sneak-a-toke in.
I thought security was pretty chill. The car search I got going in Thursday was nothing. Nothing was taken out of the car, of the 4 people in the car I was the only one to get a pat down. I will say though that the 4 of us looked pretty harmless and weren't drinking in line.
Security to get in every day I thought was pretty good. I wore and small leather fanny ack each day which I never had to take off and never opened. Once I was asked what was in it but they didn't search it. I brought in cans of beer and vodka in water sac.
The only security measure that pissed me of was that if you had to dump your water bottle when leaving the beer garden.
do they make you take off your shoes?
Shuttle entrance they checked shoes of random people. Mine were never checked but the guy ahead of me did.
oh, and I wasn't holding anything (and don't think I look like a big drug user), but if I had been, he would have found it.
seriously. just put it in your crotch. think briefs or panties.
What happen if someone make a crime?
Being searched twice for taking the shuttle seemed like a punishment. Definitely will contact Valley Music travel to complain about that! Seems like the shuttles are carrying so many people now that thereshould be a seperate line for shuttle riders or just skip the camping search since we are not going to the campground!
As it turns out, security let my friend through whose camping pass didn't match her bracelet. Nothing got checked really for camping. As far as gates, the most I was touched was underwire of my bra but most every time they just asked me to move around shit in my purse.
