Thread: Leaving Coachella Sunday Night

    Default Leaving Coachella Sunday Night

    Hi!

    The guide says: "Please be advised all car/tent camping lots will be on lock down between the hours of 10pm – 2am nightly. If you need to leave prior to 2am on sunday, you need to do so before 10pm."

    Has anyone ever left Sunday night before? Is it a mess? Relatively chill? I'm having concerns leaving in the pitch darkness.

    We were planning to pack up our tent and have the car ready to go after Sunday night ends. Probably leave at 2am.

    My GF left at 9:30 last year, but from the companion parking lot. Wasn't any traffic since it was so early. Had some friends leave at 2AM one year, there was a bit of a line to get out but not too bad IIRC.

    Not sure from Camping area...but try to park as close to an exit as possible. I don't think they can keep you 'locked in' ...especially if you have a family emergency. I'd just say be super careful driving out...drive super slow....look out for people passed out on the ground, people running through and the such.
    Lastly, there are 1000 cops Sunday night on the roads from the festival to Phoenix and from the festival to LA/San Diego...they KNOW a bunch of party animals have been released and are on the roads likely drunk and/or stoned....if you weren't smart enough to stop drinking/using....they're gonna bust your ass....then forget getting home Sunday....you'll be in jail.

    ...be smart. Use the 6 hour rule...which is if your ass is gonna drive....stop drinking 6 hours before you get behind the wheel.

    The local paper announces the amount of arrests every year from Coachella....don't be a number

    Thank you all! We got a hotel room for Sunday night in Palm Springs so we won't be driving far. In any case, we will have a DD

    when you leave just flag down a security guard he will call for someone to escort you out. Just make sure to do so by 10pm, not sure how hard it would be to try and say you have an emergency. My friend is packing the car up early sunday this year and driving to the day parking so he can go home no problem after the show

    If you think you're going to miss the 10pm curfew, move your car to day camping earlier in the day before you go into the festival.
    Also, we've left at 2am before and had no issue.

    Moved out of camping around 630 on sunday. FUCKING no one knew where an open day parking lot was. We had to have drove around the venue 3-4 times before we finally found a guard that knew where to go. Best thing i was told from a traffic guard was "i dont live here and to use my GPS to find a parking lot".... RIGHT my GPS will know which lot is open... almost missed all of hans zimmer =(

    We left right after Kendrick played Humble , we were walking near the Yuma when he did his encore. Probably took us 20-30 minutes before we were on the freeway from leaving the venue.
