    Default Which lots fill up first?

    New map for 2013 is up.

    I assume so, but just in case; is lot 8 is the first one to fill up? I was in lot 8 last year and I'm looking to be in it again this year, will be leaving early Thursday.

    tent camping seems to be a good walk from the festival, a warm up i suppose. :P

    I am guessing that 4 and 7 will fill first, and last year 5 filled first. How was lot 4 last year?

    sorry, but not accurate. last year we were the 3rd car on the fields and they put us in the front of 8. the 101 Ave was right next to my tent.

    VOLVOX is correct. They filled up the front half of 8 first, then filled up 5 and the rest of 8 before moving back towards the toll booths.

    We thought we were going to be in 8 (which was half full) when they guided us around and put us in the first row of lot 5.

    Without lot 5 being car camping, I would assume they will fill up 8 first. The people that show up early do it so that they can get a good spot in 8 close to the entrance so It would seem GV finally realizes that.

    I heard many people liked lot 5 though because all the earliest people got put there which means all the coachella lovers were in the same spot...but yeah i agree it would suck to get put in lot 5 since its farther and since you get there very early thursday...last year we got to the security check around noon thursday and got put into lot 8 by the ada side...i love that spot!! but this year i am going to guess they will fill it lot 8 then 4 then 7 and finish with 10

    It was just dumb luck. we were easily 150 cars back before they opened the gates. we ended up being the first car at one of the 15 or so check points. we had a fast crew and all our stuff was opened and ready for them.
    was pretty nice to be that close actually. got to hear the Thursday night Black Keys soundchecks.
    being right outside the exit was useful too.

    Pretty sure it's going to go Lot 4 > Lot 8 > Lot 7 > Lot 10.

    lot 7 definitely did not fill up first last year. It was probably one of the last ones that filled up. I was looking for a lot last year to have our soccer game. It started filling up mid-day friday.

    this was the lot thursday nightso.jpg

    Seriously, how early were you in line? When I asked through the "contact us" link they said no hanging out early, but I understand that they can't promote people getting there too early since according to them, it is a residential area.

    Who knows which they'll fill first? They modify, alter, and improve logistics every year.

    I would not try to time your arrival to get the lot of your choice. That way leads to folly.

    Last year the intention was to fill lot 5 first, we asked they guy who directed us why Lot 5 when 8 wasn't full, and they said lot 5 wasn't ready in time. So maybe it will go from the top of the map to the bottom, as menikmati has said.

    By now you should have your body (& feet) ready to do A LOT of walking. If not, bring extra cash to buy rides on the tricycles. No matter what lot you end up in, be thankful you aren't at work (if you work) or home with the kids (assuming you have kids that are not old enough to attend yet like me). I'd like to be in Lot 8, but hell sometimes the stars don't line up just right...just go with what you get & have fuckin fun!

    That would be completely retarded if they fill lot 4 first. They know damn well people show up early to be right next to the entrance. I will be LIVID if they put us in lot 4 after showing up earlier than 99% of campers.

    I think HOPEFULLY by getting rid of lot 5 and turning lot 4 into car camping, they've realized that it's easiest to fill up the entrance first and work their way back. I think they fill up all of 8 first, then move on to 4, 7, 10... or 8 first, then front half of 10, then 4, 7 and back half of 10. I don't care as long as we get put in lot 8 since that's the whole fucking reason we're showing up early.

    Why do you think 4 before 8, Erik?

    My urchins will probably be showing up around 9-10 PM Thurs.

    Where does that put them?

    Actually the more I look at it, it's probably going to be 8 > 4 > 7 > 10.

    9-10pm Thursday should still put them somewhere in Lot 8 I bet, but it will be pretty filled up by then, which means there is a slight chance to be routed to lot 4 I'd say.

    And I only say that because I've arrived at the campground around midnight-1am, and they were still filling lot 8 before (or just starting lot 7/10).
