    I plan on being there well before 5pm on the campgrounds.
    Questions: Is it, the earlier you show up, the better camping spot you will get? As in, closer to the campers entrance?
    Just curious. Thanks.

    In the past, the earlier you showed up the further you were placed from the entrance.

    do they assign you camping spots as you check in? like a grid system.
    or do you pick where ever you want?

    You're assigned a spot based on a grid system.

    oh okay, so like you said, the earlier you show up, the farther from the coachella entrance you will be?

    It should be noted though that the further you are from the festival, the closer you are to the food and drink establishments and showers within the campground.

    there's a grid and the earlier you get there the closer you are to all that junk they were talking about up there, but don't you get to decide on which end of the grid you get to camp? like left, right or middle (not near or far from venue entrance)
    I don't have anything clever to say right now.

    I'm heading to the campground immediately after the Arcade Fire Spreckels show in San Diego...I'm guessing I'd arrive at around 2 or 3 in the a.m., I've asked this before but how far are the campgrounds from the camp parking???
