    Default Car searches for non camping

    Do non camping cars get searched like car camping cars do? My friends and I want to bring our "valuables" in the car with and so we can go to the car and drink up if there is a pause in the setlist for us. Thanks! See you April 18

    You should be ok if you can get past the drug sniffing horses.

    It's a long running joke on this board.

    They don't search cars if they aren't going into the campgrounds. You drive up, park and walk to the entrance. We used to drink in the parking lot beforehand but that was too time consuming.

    majority of the people are drinking in the parking lot, but it's a long walk in to the festival so to me it's not worth leaving in the middle of the day to drink.

    FYI, the walk to and from the day parking lot will take up most of, if not an entire set. It's a long walk.

    they do search your car in the companion parking lot as if you were camping though. light search inside and no glass allowed

    Make friends with someone at a camp site. I wouldn't have a problem with storing a a few beers under my car for someone, if they asked nicely.

    Is is possible to sleep in your car in the companion parking lot?

    i'm guessing you went through the toll booth thursday night just to get to companion parking, right?

    reason i'm asking is i don't exactly live in the coachella valley and my car is prone to trouble. i don't want to have to leave my tools at home just because some security guard thinks i'm going to be throwing wrenches at random people. i also don't feel it's fair i need to clean/search my car from top to bottom to make sure there is nothing in there that they'll flip out over. companion parking folks still need to go through double security to get into the venue so, a car search is just to go into the companion lot is stupid. it would be like searching every day parking car.

    any of you companion parkers ever show up friday morning with the day parking people? did they route you through the toll?
