    I am 43 with three kids. This year will be my 2nd coachella. I would love to bring my kids too and they would love to go. They just can not get away. Too much school and sports stuff.

    For you old timers out there, Safari tents are the only way to go!

    It depends on what is important to you. We come from far away so traditional camping isn't practical. We fly in and don't drive. Also, being VERY comfortable in the tents (AC/beds, furniture etc) and getting golf cart rides to and from the stages from backstage is awesome. There is also a ton of bottled water and food made available morning and night. Being able to watch side stage or at the artist/guest areas is awesome too, particularly if you are short like me and being in crowds can be tough. With 3 of us going it takes the cost to about 2700 apiece, which, when you consider what you'd pay for a VIP ticket, hotel and shuttle plus food and water, it's pretty good value considering all the perks you get with it. (Swimming pool, lounging tent, access to the artist trailer rest area, VIP everywhere, private bathrooms and shower trailers).

    No side stage viewing this year. From an email I got from Valley Music "Regarding access, the only thing that is changing this year pertains to the production areas behind and on the side of the stages. This should not affect any of the experiential amenities of the Safari program and is mainly a safety measure."

    As for Lynn163 asking if it is worth it, I would say it depends. I think it is worth every penny. The tents are just part of the benefit. You have access to the polo grounds before the gates even open. This makes getting your t'shirt purchase easy. The tents include a buffet style breakfast and dinner. The food was surprisingly good and was different each day. If you had some things to snack on during the day, you could not even need to purchase food the whole weekend.

    But what I like the best is the convenience of the whole thing. We would get up and get some breakfast and head over for some of the early bands. There is usually a period mid-afternoon where we would be able to take a break. A quick golf cart ride back to the tent area. Shower, change of clothes and head back. Probably only gone for 45 minutes. As the sun went down it started to get cold. Another quick golf cart trip back to pick up a sweat shirt, the right back. Gone only about 15 minutes, maybe 45 minutes if you decided to eat. If you can afford it you should try it, I don't think you would regret it.

    I checked with customer service upon seeing this and there may still be some access in certain parts of the stage where you can stand, it's just going to be away from the production equipment and further off to the side. But of course with headliners you don't get any stage access. I guess we'll see what it looks like when we get there.

    If you are getting a "Guest" wristband then there will be no access into the actual stage areas, that is reserved for production and artist passes. There will be fenced in corridors/walkways from the back road out to the ga area and guest pit in front of the stages, but that will be it. The days of hanging out on the stage or directly next to or behind it are over.

    Wow that's too bad. But the guest viewing in the front seems okay. I'm glad they have it at the main and outdoor this year. In 2011 there was no separate guest/artist viewing - it was only at the tents.

    44, going w/out my kids too, can't wait. Couldn't afford the whole safari tent cost, did splurge on VIP tix and car camping.

    Is there a "mellow" place to camp? I'm arriving first thing Friday morning, and was planning on getting as close to the gates as I could. But now I guess that might not be the way to go if I actually want to get some sleep...

    I have never done "normal" camping so I can't tell you where is good or bad. What I can tell you is you don't really have a choice. When you get through security they will tell you where to park. It is not a chose your spot process.

    Thanks, I just read that on another thread. Guess I'll just hope for the best.

    I think there will be a lot of older people there, especially with the stone roses playing, I think there will be loads of british and irish folks. I'm older myself but i'm pretty youthfiul and energetic and I usually get along much better with people younger than me than I do with people older. I'm looking forward to it all and hope that everyone around my tent are good people. As I have car camping if I really need sleep or to get away from noise i'll just go in the car and wear noise cancelling headphones!

    well I can't speak for festivals, but I can say that all the shows I go to , I see people that are well over 50, hell I went to see the Smashing Pumpkins and there was this old man who must've been like 68 completely bald and shriveled rockin' out, to the point he looked like he was having a seizure lmfao. Everyone around took a picture, video or gave him props , it was pretty hilarious to see such an old man in the crowd of people that were like 18~36. I'm expecting to see a fair amount of people in their 40's here.
