so im coming over with a mate, and we've had this trip planned for 6 months now and we missed out on camping tickets due to the website crashing. The only other options i can find are crazy expensive hotels that look like rape dungeons. Any coachella regulars have any good advise on how to get by through the weekend without paying over 1000 bucks for accomm for the weeekend?

Also, is it safe to buy camping passes off a 3rd party even though coachella specifies not to? i notice alot of people selling tickets etc but i dont want to fly all that way only to be let down when we get there if the tickets dont work..
