Coachella is finally here. If you are going to be experiencing Coachella by camping, then you have already gotten everything squared away, and if you have not you are probably out of luck. The on-site camping at Coachella fills up incredibly fast as do the surrounding hotels.
Now there is a whole lot more than just one way to camp on-site. You can grab a spot with your car, get a tent spot, or you can even rent out what they call a safari tent and go glamping (glamorous camping). No matter how you will be camping in Indio for the Coachella Music and Arts Festival here are some things that you should keep in mind to make sure that you have a great time while you are there.
- Bring your own food and drink. Being prepared on any camping trip is essential, even one where you will be surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of people. Make sure you have the fuel you need to keep going.
- Prepare for desert weather. Indio, California is technically in the desert. Days are hot and nights are chilly, so be sure to plan accordingly. Layered clothing is the best option to make sure you are cool enough by day and warm enough by night.
- Remember that anyone camping has to have a festival pass and has to be 18 or older with a valid form of identification (or with a parent/legal guardian). Also, campers are subject to be searched at any time.
- There are first aid stations and security on-site for campers at all times.
- Do not plan on having any fireworks, tiki torches, or open flames.
- Camping passes cannot be transferred. They will only work with the festival pass that they were purchased with.
