    Don't listen to Big Gay Al and his butt buddy's, they are just giving you a hard time....most people will say Car Camping is the best. Though I've never done it, nor will I ever, I can't really say which is best. For me I'd rather have a nice house within walking/biking distance so I can enjoy a nice shower and actually be able to sleep. If you camp, you will smell and be forced to wake up at like 7am because the sun is beating down on your tent making it horrible to sleep in. You can easily party with everyone else in the camp grounds and stumble home when your done rather than getting 2-3 hours sleep when camping...booking a hotel and taking a shuttle in would be my second choice. Most hotels are filled with other coachella folk and throw some nice pool parties and some even have food and stuff when you return at night.

    Your best bet is to get a Safari tent pass. Most people don't realize that the general admission only allows you to hear the music from around 500ft behind the stage so you don't actually get to see the bands. Also, it can get a little pricey, so you're better off finding a ticket on craigslist or Ebay.

    Car camping is a lot of fun if you don't mind some rowdy folks.

    I haven't done tent camping since they started the car camping thing, but I'm sure it's just as fun, maybe a little bit more toned down than car camping, since people there want a bit more peace and quiet.

    Aww did the Big Gay Al reference offend you?

    If you haven't noticed, the majority of you coachella "Veteran's" flame almost every person that comes on here asking for advice - acting like you're tough shit just because you've gone to coachella since its inception... Secondly, the guy is obviously open about his sexual preference (which I could careless about) and based upon his past comments, can certainly take a joke.

    We have no news yet about 2014. Come back here in May and maybe there will be a date and presale.

    Nobody actually appears as "tough shit" on the internet....and the board members only flame the fucking stupid people with questions which is 9/10 of them.

    nope. It was the fact that a little dirt and smell will turn you off to ~half of the overall coachella experience. you should keep going to those awesome hotel pool parties.

    Never been to an awesome hotel pool party, nor have I ever stayed at a hotel for coachella....just making the point that camping is for some people while others may prefer something else.

    Ok, do you think 8 guys coming from Australia are looking for a clean, quite, non-camping experience?

    While some of the flaming on this board is a little excessive, it can sometimes be understandable. There is a thread that has been posted to many times in the past week on the same damn page with a whole discussion on camp vs. hotel for Coachella. It's even called "To Camp or Hotel..." How hard is that to find? Jbice24 could spend 5 minutes instead of posting another thread.

    Now, to make this easy, I'm posting the link to the thread: http://www.coachella.com/forum/showt...-camp-or-hotel

    There are also a ton of ways to set up your camping spot to allow for plenty of sleep. There's also this thing called a shower that Coachella provides free of charge if one doesn't want to smell. Of course, the best way to learn about all of this is to read the FAQs and message board threads.
