    It's my understanding that camelbacks aren't allowed- is this correct?

    Yes, camelbaks and similar are not allowed in the festival grounds. Sometimes security guards do not see them, don't know the rule or decide not to follow the rule so every year some people are able to bring them in.

    It doesn't really matter for this particular question because the questioner was asking about camping. The rules are no outside food or beverages, which includes bottles of water so they weren't going to be bringing water bottles into the festival anyway (though, again, sometimes security guards do not see them, don't know the rule or decide not to follow the rule so every year some people are able to bring them in.)


    Edit: I was wrong about camelbaks. The rules have been changed and now they are allowed in empty.

    Do they frisk you at all upon entering camp and event grounds, for both men and women?

    This is incorrect. The rules have been updated and now empty camelbacks are allowed in the festival grounds.

    I'm 99% certain of the answer to this but I better check just to make sure. I know the merch booth normally accepts debit cards. I imagine the Zia tent probably does as well? Correct?

    They did last year, huge pain in the ass for me since I wasn't even camping but they parked me in a lot on the ass end of nowhere so I had to go through camping to get to the venue.

    I always take a photo on my phone containing a friend's name and contact info (along with a message about being lost) and use it as my lock screen. If my phone gets lost, nobody can get through the password, but they can still see a name and number to contact in order to return my phone.

    That's genius.

    Yay for the kindness of strangers.

    In 06 someone walked up to me in the food court and handed me my camera. They had looked through the photos and spotted my friends. Renews my faith in humanity.
    1 Coachella before I got sober, 7 since. I support both versions. If you wanna do the sober version, roll with us:

    Coachella newbie but speaking from Bonnaroo experience, it can be handy to freeze bottles of water to use in the cooler! We tried putting them down as the bottom layer then putting our food on top and filling with extra ice. So nice to have the icy water later. Remember to open and pour a little out before you freeze though.

    Bandana
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
