Thread: Car Camping Now Open at 1 PM

  1. #1

    Default Car Camping will be open before 1 PM, like always! (EDITED)

    Hasn't car camping usually opened up at 10 AM?

    I just wanted to see the outrage of those who try to smash out to Indio supppppper early to park near the front of the entrance. You should still get your spot, just have to wait an extra 3 hrs.

    it does, the line will most likely be very long before they start letting people in. Hopefully it will die down a little before people start getting off of work and make the trek. I'll probably shoot a little later this year.

    Yeah, you're right, that's probably it. They bring in a staff of 20,000 people, they spend an entire week erecting the campgrounds, but the pre-printed time on the Frontgate ticket email FOUR FUCKING MONTHS BEFORE THE ACTUAL THING IS HAPPENING is clearly reflecting a definite change in their policies. NO WAY IN HELL this is just a time they threw in there because Coachella hasn't settled on the time yet because it's FOUR FUCKING MONTHS AWAY. Holy shit are you ever a worthless new person.

    From the camping section of the 2013 Advance Sale FAQ on the Coachella website:

    Camping is open Thursday at 8am through Monday at noon either weekend. Cars can check in at 9am on Thursday until 2am and starting at 9am FRI-Sun (until 11PM). 24 hours for pedestrians parking in companion parking and walking over to camp spots. Please plan your arrival times accordingly.

    I think we're good.

    Thanks for actually posting something of relevance instead of "YELLING" on the internet and calling someone a newb because they haven't been a member for over 1 year.

    According to the FAQs, if anyone reads them:

    •Onsite camping opens Thursday, April 12, 2012, at 9:00am and closes on Monday, April 16, 2012 at noon. Early arrival is highly recommended. Cars can check in at 9am on Thursday until 2am, and starting at 9am FRI-Sun (until 11PM). 24 hours for pedestrians.

    You're not a noob because you're new, you're a noob because you mention insanely stupid crap as if it's something worth talking about. Who who Frontgate is? A fucking ticketing company. Know what they have to do with Goldenvoice's actual decision of what time to open the campsite, something that probably hasn't even been fucking DISCUSSED by them yet? NOTHING. Frontgate knows fucking NOTHING of any concrete significance about when the campsite will open. Know why? BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T EVEN MADE THE DECISION.

    If you don't know, that is Dr. Tobias Fünke from "Arrested Development". One of the greatest shows ever. I would highly recommend it. It's on netflix.
