Modern music festivals, especially those that take place during the summer, are almost ready-made for RV owners. With a plethora of campgrounds you will find that music events are just the place to set up for a long weekend of fun.
Without a doubt the biggest one of the summer is California’s Coachella music festival. The festival itself takes place over two weekends about a half hour drive away from Palm Springs, CA. Travelers should take note that this is one of the biggest festivals of the year so expect plenty of traffic on your way in and out of the event. Though there are many routes to get near the city only the 10 freeway leads directly into the festival.
Please note: There is a very limited amount of overnight Camping “companion parking” passes available for $30. Campers will only be allowed to purchase ONE additional companion parking pass (while supplies last) per camping pass purchased. This parking pass is for 1 extra car of people who are staying in your spot but need a place to park their car overnight. Companion parking will be adjacent to the campgrounds and may or may not (probably won’t) be in close proximity to your camping spot. Once these run out, there are no alternative overnight onsite parking options available.
There are no car ins/outs in the companion Camping parking lot. If you decide to drive out you will forfeit your spot and be re-directed to the day parking lots which do not allow overnight parking and you could be towed. SO DON’T LEAVE UNTIL YOU ARE LEAVING FOR GOOD. People are expected to plan ahead and please carpool. This pass is only available for purchase when buying your Car/Tent Camping Pass.
It is always best to plan ahead for festivals like Coachella so make sure you have everything in place before you arrive. The last thing you want to do is just show up without a ticket or a place to park.
