Slubmerjack Cot for $39.99
$18 portable gas stove. http://thatdailydeal.com/
I've never looked into, nor wanted to cook at coachella, so I'm not 100% positive these would be alright, but its $18 bucks, whatever.
I know some one posted a link to a foldable bike on amazon but I'm too lazy to go back and look through and the threads to see if this is a better deal. But, if you're looking for a foldable bike to cruise around car camping here is this:
DAFT PUNK,... Ronald Jenkees! The Prodigy! Faithless! Groove Armada Live! Underworld! London Elektricity! (live set) Future Sound of London! DJ Yoda (DVJ Set!) Dillinja and Lemon D w/ the Valve Soundsystem, Ed Solo & Deekline! Dizzee Rascal!
Finally found a good BBQ in a reasonable size to bring. Checked out quite a few and this one was in my top choices and then I saw one on Portland,s Craigslist for $50 so it seemed like providence! Seems to work very well and with the original price tag of $179 I feel like it was a good deal for $50 and as much as we camp and go to festivals it will pay for itself in just a couple of good BBQ's:-)
Solar power find! So I've been doing some research on Goal Zero's (goalzero.com) Solar product line, comparing them and reading reviews and such. Was about to purchase the Guide 10 Plus Adventure Kit to charge up various smart phones and lights for coachella, the burn, and various mountain parties when I came across the exact same product on Amazon for ~40% cheaper. Goes on Goal Zero's website for $159.95 & on Amazon's for $95.64, had to jump on this deal and share it with everyone. Also picked up an additional battery pack and some lanterns. I'll update after I get em' all set up and tested, but i'm pretty stoked. Check it out!
skip the middle of the day shower and avoid smelling like old cheese all at the same time
My friend just bought this tent.
Cheap. Gets the job done. And small enough to pack in a duffle bag.

I don't get why anyone wants a "HOT" shower...the soothing cold showers in the trailers are a nice way to rejuvenate yourself everyday and escape the heat for a few minutes.
Check out this little treasure I just found. Awesome tent idea for 'Chella. Saves space, very convenient, cheap enough.
Last year I had a giant condo tent with two rooms, a breezeway and lots of space, but with 4 girls it was just too big. This year I'm opting for more grass, less tent. This solves the storage dilemma. Win!

do people bring in knives for cutting/chopping up food to cook? or do people just pre-cut/chop everything before they go?
We bring knives but make sure they are buried in your cooking stuff. If they are very obvious the could be confiscated. Security gave my daughter trouble about cooking knives last year but finally let her take them in.
REI has a closeout deal on a quality brand sleeping bag with good reviews.
I bought a portable shower/crapper for under $100 for everything on Amazon. Selling shower time, starting at $1 a minute, do I hear a $1.50?!

Question to those who have done this before...
So after you purchase a massive cooler, camp stove, other food storage/cooking implements (if needed), and the actual food itself, are you actually Saving money over buying majority of your food at the festival?
snack foods are key to save some money around breakfast time, midday before the show and after the show, so you save around $15-$30 each day
people buying into that bullshit breakfast buffet for $10+ are smoking some crack, you can cook yourself some eggs for nothing - 30 eggs 6.99 @ costco, boom!
i buy my main meal inside the venue (hippie sandwiches) and spend around $20 on other foods/drinks for the rest of the day; i will keep waters back at camp so when I head back for a minute I can chug some waters and save myself a few bucks

Ill pay the $10. Its the convience of it all. I dont wanna cook,clean,transport all that shit. I walk up, eat and im done. $10or $20 its worth it to me so I can chill/relax/get medicated. Im not coming to coachelly to scrub pans in the morning , fuck that.
I'm with NachoCat... I just figured I'd bring some brekkie bars/snacks, raw fruit/veggies, beverages, extra ice, bottled water, and things like that in a cooler and be set to buy the odd lunch or dinner there. But people were mentioning making omeletes and freakin putanesca at their campsite and I started to worry. Seriously? Seems like it would actually cost more (cooler $80 + stove $60 + propane + ice + food??) plus the time in prep and clean-up. I just don't see it, unless you really had a big group. I was just trying to feel it out .. Is the food served at Coachella that bad/expensive?
^the food at Coachella is delicious if you know where to look. the people cooking up fine cuisine just like to get fancy i guess
however my group will be taking the extra equipment needed to cook up some bacon wrapped hotdogs, NOM!
We tried bringing food and cooking last year, and we will not be doing it again. It wasn't worth the hassle. We didn't even use all of our food because we got tired of the cooking and cleaning by saturday night.
