Here is another sampling of tips from readers about Coachella. The contest to see Portishead's private rehearsal ends tonight. Good luck and we hope you learn and get some ideas from the suggestions below!

  • "No matter how tempted, or drunk, you may be, do not go skinny dipping in the Salton Sea." ~ DPSeeck
  • "Bring several sunscreen bottles -- at least as large as the giant NoAd bottles. Before you leave town, wash them out, then fill them up with rum, vodka, or whatever you fancy. At the show, drink at least as much water, as you do "sunscreen." Do make sure at least one bottle actually has sunscreen in it. And don't mix up your "sunscreens" with your sunscreen. Ew." ~ LiisaLA
  • "Eating heavier food offerings like pizza, meatball sandwiches, gyros, etc will zap your energy. But if you eat from the vegetarian/organic stands, you won't get the dreaded food coma, which is even worse in that heat!" ~ penny lane
  • "If you have to take a nap, the place that shows that slideshow between the Gobi and Mojave tents is air conditioned. It's a good place to crash and get away from the heat" ~ cougarh
