Friend just posted that.
this thread is more active so.. when did you guys there and what lot did you end up in? are they filling 8 first then 5 then back to 8?
They filled part of 8, then started with 5. Dunno if they're back to filling 8 yet, haven't checked. I got here at 9:20 and am very close to the entrance in lot 8.
Anyone been rejected with the camping pass for not being the same order?

Subject: car camping question
Are you guys seriously confiscating tent stakes in the car camping inspection line? Are we supposed to search for where our tent blew off to each day when coming back from the venue?
and who is paying for all the damage caused by all the uplifted tents and canopies flying all over the place crashing into cars and people?
this is ridiculous, I'm gonna put my tent stakes in a nonchalantly 'hidden' box marked "DRUGS" just to be a smartass
bumper to bumper on 52 @ Coachella Music Festival
heyeric - have you seen any wristbands being scanned while checking into camping? Any sense of how the matching camping pass to festival pass is working out?
How long to get thru the line? The other thread has no love.

Taking stakes=safe vampires...
What we know:
1:00/2:00PM - Lot 8 was originally being filled.
2:00/3:00PM - Lot 8 stopped being filled and Lot 5 began being filled.
4:00PM - Lot 5 and Lot 8 would appear to be both filling in.
4:30/5:30 - Lot 5 is still being filled and Lot 8 is near capacity. Reported by PF
Early reports suggest that stakes, rubber mallets, and PVC piping have been confiscated - even as far as to say "no home made/custom tenting or shading allowed"
Later reports suggest the early report may not be implemented any longer.
It has been reported that "neighbors" of HEYERIC board member had purchased Car Camping passes from a third party, not linked to said "neighbors" wristbands purchased from Front Gate and managed to get into Car Camping.
Wiffle Bats will be confiscated.
BrokenDoll offers extra tent - board member of the year?
Local news did a remote and traffic was NOT backed up out on Monroe, FWIW. Also, local weather says some rain 10am Friday but they forecast 6pm Friday as when the front will really hit.
There is a lot of room still left in lot 8.
2 min search for us, pat down and quick overview of car. No digging in ours! Whoo
DAMN!! I don't want to loose my rubber mallet!! im going to have to hide it somwhere.
Thieving as security confiscated 3 mini kegs of heady beer from us upon car search. They are trying very hard to take as much alcohol as they can especially if you have bomb brews.
