Folks, since I'm planning for Coachella 2010 already I'm wondering how often do they ID you for the camping??
We will have one 18 yearold and a few 17 yearolds.... And we are from Canada so how serious are they about ID?

don't bring underage kids who are going to get into trouble and then cause trouble for gv. camp offsite or something.

What is the point of the 18+ anyways if drinking age is 21?

liability. insurance. 18=adult, 17=minor

I didn't get ID'd once and I saw no one else getting ID'd either, but I also wasn't paying attention.

As long as they're not retarded and don't look 12, there shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Frazzles, you are a groovy folk =D

I never saw anyone get carded either but most people looked like they were atleast 18.

We will look like we are atleast 18 though, I will probably will be able to grow more than a molest-stache

if you can't get into the camping area, just drive down the street to Lake Cahulia.. it's like $14 for 6 people a night.. and (except for 2007) they always have extra spaces available last minute..

but either way, keep all the minors away from the polo fields.. i don't wanna get arrested for raping somebody..LOL

They ID you to get your camping wristband i believe.

Yes, they do...and it made my day! :rolleyes

Maybe they ID you if you have a vagina to get the wristband.

If you don't rape anyone you should be fine.

ive been camping since '07 when i was 17. never got carded once. you should be good

Do we have to bring ID's? but why?

08-31-2009, 04:59 PM
I've been to (and camped at) Coachella twice and have never been ID'd for camping. I actually expected to be asked for ID at some point, since I regularly get mistaken for about 15 or 16.

However, this is purely anecdotal evidence. Just because I wasn't asked for ID doesn't mean nobody in your group will be... if you want to take your chances, go for it, but be sure to have a backup plan.

I get carded every year. I think they are checking to see if I qualify for the senior discount.
