    Default Question to Indio area residents or people who know anything about the Polo Fields

    A friend wants to drive out to the polo fields on Sunday to take some pictures of the grounds. The idea is to put together a photo exhibit showing what the place looks like normally and then juxtapose it with the magical surroundings Goldenvoice erects for us, a passion project in praise of Coachella.

    My question to anybody who lives out there or even better knows anything about the operation of the Polo Fields in general: what are the chances that we'll drive out there (my friend needs sheparding as they have actually never attended but have heard me talk about it and seen the pictures and want to do this thing now) and there will end up being some polo match or other event going on that will make it impossible for us to walk around and take pictures? I've checked their site, they don't list any upcoming events or anything. Any help?

    My girlfriend and I made a stop at the polo fields on our way back from vacation. We drove down 51st and stopped at the end of lot 10 and walked around. Then we drove around and parked on top of where the mainstage would be. We walked over to the polo sign and didn't see a single person the entire time we were out there.

    Oh wow, so you can park back there? I was hoping someone would be able to inform me on the closest place to park so we don't have to tromp all the way across the fucking place to get to the middle of the fields. So you're saying take what, like Monroe down to 51 and turn towards the fields and then there's parking around there?

    Park over by the Tack Room. It should be easy to walk around.

    ya it's pretty different there when there is no festival. there are no gates, fences, etc.

    I walked the polo fields with my GF on New Years day last year, right after having a few drinks at the tack room. The people there are pretty cool with others just walking around. here are a few photos...
