    ummm, when it's 107 during the day, it does not get "very cool" at night.

    My $12K guess was based on 2 people - a 5K bump on safari

    15-20K -damn, that would need to be some special meals......

    Even if four people went in together on one of these tents, that sounds miserably crowded, especially at night and during the multi-day costume changes and make-up touch-ups.

    You could go VIP at a four-star resort with shuttle pass for $1,000/person less than the per person cost of Safari.

    And I could get two high-class hookers and few 8balls for them sheckles.

    Yes it does. It's cool enough that you freeze your ass off if the AC stays on in your tent. And after being bloody hot all day it's a shock to the system so you feel colder, a lot more than you'd expect. I wore a toque to bed every night.

    Christ almighty. We're going to Spain for TWO WEEKS and not spending $9,000. You people need to learn better money management (particularly those that don't have the disposable income to spend on shit like this..none of you are Kanye.)

    I understand that, but (speaking as a former financial counselor) it's still not the smartest way to spend your disposable income, unless all of your income is disposable. Seriously, think about what you can do with $9,000. That's college tuition for your kid for A YEAR at some schools.

    One of the benefits of having no kids is that their college fund becomes your fun fund. That being said, I'm not sure I'm willing to part with that kind of cash. The lineup will need to be pretty stellar to consider it.

    I would never argue with you capt, knowing I'll get my ass handed to me easily...All your points are spot on and yeah safari isn't for everyone to be disposing a huge percentage of their income on, for me personally it's a bucket list thing...my plans are not to be wasting serious money on it every year

    I did 3 months of backpacking through Europe for around $10,000. And that was comfortable backpacking with good food and hotels at times. Would never drop that much for a 3-4 day music fest.

    And if you did a trip to the Galapagos, you could easily drop $20k for a family of four (I think the National Geographic tour is closer to $30k.)

    Different adventures have different costs.

    I would never drop a dime on a cruise of any kind - but I don't give a shit if someone else puts money on it. If the Safari tents don't sell this year, then Golden Voice knows they have priced them out of market.

    You pay your (incredibly expensive) ticket, and you take your ride...

    These prices just seem targeted to people that don't really care about spending that kind of money at all. I have a client that went to a mediterranean cruise for a week then spent 2 weeks visiting a few places in Europe. He spent $150k for his family of 4. He still thinks the Safari tents are overpriced.

    I agree its expensive, but aren't we all entitled to spend our own money however we see fit?

    I work my ass off all year round for my money, I save hard and therefore I reserve the right to choose how I spend it... I think the same applies to all of us.

    We travel over from Ireland just for this and having added up the bills from my previous trips to Coachella, Safari really isn't that much more than I have previously spent on 2 x VIP passes plus a decent hotel IF (and I say if) you split it between four people.

    Its all about experiences for me and this might be the last coachella I get to for a long time due to young kids and other commitments, its also my wifes 40th - therefore I want to make it a different experience to previous trips and make sure that we both have great memories to look back on.

    I bet you're a right barrell of laughs on a night out. Stick your cash in a pension and watch it disappear y'all.

    First year in safari this year. It was absolutely worth it. Why? because it was brilliant.

    I just checked the Valley Music Travel site -- price went up to $7,000 for a Safari tent for 2 from $6,500 last year. Each additional guest is now $1,750 versus $1,500 last year. And yeah -- no layaway -- gotta pay to play. http://www.valleymusictravel.com/coa...safari2015.php

    We had a blast in Safari this year -- like Dede' says, "it was brilliant." Worth doing at least once if you can swing the green. We didn't buy our package until December 2013, and I'm sure they were nowhere near sold out at the time. With the price increase, Safari will probably be available well after the lineup drops.

    Regarding the yurts, we asked the Safari concierge and they said the yurts went for $15,000. I saw only one of them in use (the farthest away) during W1.

    An extra $500 is not going to deter someone already used to paying $6500.

    Hey Amy, fuck it. Spend seven month's rent on a four day vacation even though everyone knows you can't afford to. It's the only way to have a BRILLIANT time.

    You either have the money and it's no sweat to spend it, or you don't. It does not make someone a pretentious douchebag if they do have the scratch. No one said it's the only way to have a brilliant time. I for one am going to give it a shot. If any of my Coachella going friends want to split a Safari tent, it won't be a problem.

    Do whatever you want with your money. I don't give a shit. It doesn't mean it's not fucking stupid to spend $7k on a tent with air conditioning and side stages passes so you can pretend to be a Kardashian for three days...even if you have the money to do it.

    Although if it included a maid, free alcohol and food, a private bathroom and a private kiddie pool, I'd consider it.

    It's about the music knobhead, not the money,
    It's about the music and enjoyment, not where you stayed.
    I hope you enjoyed it his year. I did, even better than the real thing, even better than the last 5 years. I don't care where you stayed, I'm glad if you also enjoyed the best music festival on earth.
    Are you going to slate me for travelling 7000 miles every April for the last 6 years and using valuable time too? Time, cost, quality - it balances for me. Give yourself a shake.

    Prove myself - ha my arse
