    it's kinda hard to enforce a neo-hippie counter-culture.

    that said, isn't the neo-hippie counter-culture thing to do to acknowledge that shit happens, some people are jerks, and just move on?

    apparently it's to bitch when anything remotely out of the expected happens to you. people point to "the spirit" of the festival as counterpoint to things like theft, bros, kids on drugs, the police, etc as though "the spirit" is some kind of deity that protects you from assholes. it doesn't. coachella attracts enough people in 3 days to support a moderately sized town, i'm not sure why people think it's somehow immune to the evils of the rest of the world. i guarantee there is at least one person who attends coachella with the idea of stealing other people's possessions. just like there are people who purposely steal things without having to pay a $300 entrance fee out in the real world.

    plan for the worst, expect the best, roll with the punches.

    I personally think if you don't want your expensive important things stolen don't leave them somewhere to be stolen. Kind of like if you dont want your puppy to chew up your shoes dont leave your shoes in your puppies cage. Just a thought.

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    It's the way you guys deliver your "advice" that make you sound like total pricks. Replies lacking of empathy and full of condescending remarks. I hope that attitude works out for you in real life...

    In 2010 I was with a bunch of first timers who were paranoid of things being stolen. I told them I had never had a problem with thieves. When we came back to camp on Sat. night one of our chairs was missing. My friend was saying " See I told you so! I knew someone would steal something" a few moments later our awesome neighbor came by saying " Hey guys, I borrowed your chair. Here you go" - Still have never had anything stolen and I have had wonderful neighbors every coachella. You have to be smart with your stuff. Also be prepared that with a festival as big as coachella its going to attract some awesome humans, and some not so awesome humans.. and maybe some posing as humans..

    C'mon now, I don't think anything we say could be classified as "advice"

    I wouldn't call anything i've said here 'advice'.

    That said,

    (a) i've never had anything stolen. (well, maybe a backpack one year, as it certainly disappeared, but that might have been me losing it.)
    (b) i basically don't take anything i would mind being stolen. (except for my kindle, which i try to protect).
    (c) i take reasonable precautions because, while i generally trust the crowd, i don't wanna be an obvious mark, either.

    in general, it all seems to work out.
