    as early during the festival as possible, and as infrequently as possible. pretty princesses dump conditioner in those poor showers and you get to wade through an inch or two of that junk if you wait til sunday.

    remembering last year is making my stomach churn. :/

    Best time is at like 4am in the all night showers.... No time limit and no line. Then you go to bed nice and clean and can sleep in. Or at like 8 at night. The line is already long when they open in the morning. I have definitely done the no shower chella before and you get smelly by the end of the weekend.

    Yeah last year a staff guy just popped his head in and yelled at all the people in my shower trailer for taking too long as the line outside was pretty lengthy.

    When I came home Saturday night, I had dirt and sand in every orifice. I even had to toss my 2 day old contact lenses (they are supposed to last 2 weeks), because the dirt had permanently attached itself to the lenses. I could have showered several times Saturday had I had the opportunity.

    Was there an all night shower open in Lot 10 this year? Last year, they closed the 24 hour shower due to fights.

    Bring no-rinse shampoo and body wipes ... shower lines aren't worth it.

    yeah i really wanted to say something and i'm glad someone else is on the right page here.

    the best times to shower are before coachella and after coachella. invest in wet wipes and deodorant, and pray to the coachella gods that darude keeps his nasty single away from weekend 2 (the superior weekend). just get dirty with us for three days and enjoy the music instead of stressing about whatever you smell like.

    If you are UC, please use more than body wipes.

    UMMM, a shower is definitely worth the wait.
    I mean, unless you have lousy hygiene.

    Use a shower in a bag, you can fill it at the water stations by the showers. It gets plenty hot enough after an hour or so in the sun if you want to bath between 7 and 5 otherwise your looking at an hour or two wait for the showers. I walked right in with zero wait at about midnight on Friday night, caught half outcasts set and was over it.

    STRONGLY disagree. This year it wasn't about smell, but about having dust/sand in every crack. Used a ton of baby wipes, but still had a shit ton of dust come off in the shower on Sunday morning.

    My expeirence with the female showers: A few friends went at like 9am on Sunday and there was no line. We went at 11am and there were LONG lines. wtf! So we went back at 1:15 and there was only like a 15 minute line. All the other days, there wasn't a like by 1:15/1:30, so it was easy. The showers in Lot 10 (near the camping center) were 24 hours (confirmed by the crew) and my friend used them in the middle of the night. However, they do start closing some trailers to clean them around 2, but not a big deal.

    Also, Friday the trailer we used was not air conditioned (or was broken). Saturday was working MUCH better and Sunday was only partially working. I appreciated that a lot as those things get STEAMY.

    Oh, and there was shit in a plastic bag outside one of the stalls on Saturday. Disgusting.

    Finally, there was a decent size line for the VIP showers every day we went. Looked like a waste.

    Anyone else wish they would post a Shower Wait Time on the app? Would be super helpful.
