  8. Re: Lake Cahuilla Camping. On-site car camping alterniative

    There is NO 'neighborhood parking'. At All.
    Another good option would be to bring bikes and ride to the venue. Should take 15-20 minutes, and on the way out after the show ends each day you'll be...
  9. Re: Looking for ride or to share cab from campground to Pappy and Harriets on Thursda

    There is no grocery store parking within walking distance of the venue. The closest grocery store (Ralph's on Jefferson/Avenue50, 2.5 miles away) closes off its parking after hours. If you want to...
  10. Re: Indian Wells or Indian Waters RV Parks.. anybody been?

    I can say the same for Indian Wells. We've been staying there the last couple years and it's been nice. They also have a shuttle service going ($35 for the weekend). Never used it but took bicycles...
  11. Re: Looking for ride or to share cab from campground to Pappy and Harriets on Thursda

    No, you can leave car camping with your car before the festival ends. You just won't be able to get back in, hence the need for a companion parking pass so you'll have a place to park after coming...
  12. Re: Essential Coachella 2014, a 3-hour mix of Coachella artists

    Thanks a lot for this! Awesome mix that gets me in the "can't wait" mood. Will bring this along on that 11-hour flight for sure!
  13. Re: Looking for ride or to share cab from campground to Pappy and Harriets on Thursda

    Even when shared, that's going to be a 100-mile cab/shuttle ride which will cost you serious money.
    If you don't find anyone, consider purchasing a companion parking pass for $30 (these are still...

  20. Re: My 1st Coachella - Car Camping Questions (Sleeper Van), etc

    that is not a campervan, that is an RV. A small one, but still a purpose-built RV and chances are great of you getting turned away. I'd await the response before committing (and if it's positive,...

    Re: is there any fees?

    except for international shipping which is $25 extra, and you only get to know about that one on the checkout page.

    The "official" hotel shuttles where you can get passes for only go to the hotels partnering with the Festival.
    These are for weekend 1:

  27. Re: Looking for Carpool Buddy Back to LAX Leaving at 3am Weekend I Monday, Car+Driver

    Honestly - $200 per person for a shuttle is WAY too much. Seeing you at all cost cannot afford to miss your 6am flight and will have to leave the grounds at 3am, I'd just rent a car for the whole...
