From the FAQ, am i under the impression that non-campers will be allowed to flow in and out of the campgrounds as they see fit? i REALLY hope thats not the case...
Planning on RV Camping. I couldn't possibly see how that would ever be allowed. It would forever be remembered as Theifchella '10
Nips, I don't have an answer, but I can assure you, you're not alone on your thoughts. Maybe campers should get a wristband, and if they choose to bring guests, they have to be with them. In other words, no band, or person with a band as your host...no entry into campground.

Although, I'm also concerned with this open campsite possibility. But we have cars with locks this year.

Yeah, I think that's what it means. It looks like you can roll into the campground if your friends are camping (if you're with them). In that case, anyone want to stash a case of beer for me in their tent?
Also, I'd totally lock my shit up.
I hope there's camping bracelets and you get them when you drive in, that seems like the most logical idea, if not everyone that isn't camping every time you come in bring a case of beer, please...
Somehow at Bonnaroo every single festival attendee has access to the campground and riots don't break out. I think it's going to be ok guys.
True, they just want electronics so they can sell it quick and buy meth. Lock up your electronics in the car. Problem solved.
Bev, you're not helping. I mentioned meth and you appeared in less than 3 minutes.
This is basically the question I posted earlier (http://coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35867 , and my concern was also about security) but based on the FAQ, you only need a festival pass to get inside the campground, hence, anyone with the festival wristband can go into the campground. ("will they actually do so" is another question - since cars parked overnight that don't have a camping parking pass will get towed).
Just remember to lock up any valuables - hah, and for me - yes "valuables" equals any electronics (think ipod/portable speakers) ... oh and of course beer!
actually, in prior years, my biggest "valuable" was the next day's ticket (I would never want to bring it inside since I was paranoid about losing it, and I hated leaving it in the car cuz I'd be parked too far away and it seemed too inconvenient and hot and disgusting to make that extra trek), but since it's just the one 3-day wristband now, I don't have to stress out about that so yay!
You started using soap.
Here's my thought on this...
The campground will still be fenced. There's won't be signs that say "Hey everybody, come on in!" Most people don't read this message board. Those who do still can't seem to figure stuff out. And- perhaps this is why PF won't answer this question. Why advertise it?
I really doubt there will be hordes of people crashing the campground. As far as theft goes, most stuff will be locked in cars, and why are non campers less trustworthy than campers as a whole?
But yeah...keep starting threads to draw attention to everything.
we have cars to lock stuff in now... couldn't people have gone through and stolen shit before??
besides, what if you are camping on someone's car camping spot, but arrive later than said car? do you have to try and phone the person and wait for them to come to check-in?
but certainly, to all the people worried about thieves: certainly a festival ticket costs more than a camping pass..
in the past people could camp without even going to the festival.. wouldn't they be more likely to steal drugs and alcohol or whatever? this new system, everyone has to have a festival ticket for all three days..
With the addition of ins and outs, I would rather have a camping bracelet type thing to filter out who's in the campgrounds...
