    Exclamation Lost & Found 2013 - LAST CHANCE

    Coachella 2013: Lost and found items by the numbers

    Posted by MyCoachella on June 4, 2013

    I don’t envy whoever’s in charge of this year’s Coachella lost and found inventory.

    The catalog of left-behind personal items at Coachella 2013 totals about 750 — including 407 loose IDs, cards and passports.

    But it seems like the increased attendance of this year’s festival — up by about 10,000 from Coachella 2012 — led to a higher concentration of responsible festival-goers, considering last year saw nearly 900 lost and found items catalogued.

    Festival workers are apparently having more trouble this year with cell phones, though — more people are adding lock codes to their phones, “making it near impossible” to find the owners.

    Here’s what I counted in the lost and found section of the Coachella website:


    407 loose IDS, cards and passports

    93 wallets and coin purses

    11 bags

    15 groups of keys — 135 keys total, some grouped together

    53 phones — including 30 locked iPhones

    18 cameras — and two empty camera bags

    11 sunglasses

    17 eyeglasses

    The inventory was first posted on May 9, and after three months, items will be donated to charity.

    totally tracked down a locked iphone 5 owner today. the name that shows on the phone when plugged into itunes is pretty unique but was not in facebook. found on instagram and twitter. searched his instgram photos and did see he posted a picture of his coachella pass box when it came so I messaged him on instgram and twitter to email us with full description. Sending his 32 gig iphone 5 back today.
