Coachella Music Festival & Stagecoach Music Festival


The City of Indio Fire Services/Riverside County Fire Department would like to welcome you as participants to the Coachella Music Festival & Stagecoach Music Festival.  We hope your stay in Indio will be a pleasant one.

The City of Indio Fire Services/Riverside County Fire Department will conduct fire inspections for all concessions, and enforce fire protection standards for the Festival.  Inspections will consist of certifying that all participants in the Festival have met the required standards.  All concessions and exhibits will be inspected on or before opening day.  Those exhibits and concessions, which do not meet the minimum fire safety standards on the day of inspection, will be required to comply prior to conducting business.

The following is a list of the most common fire safety violations that the fire inspectors will be checking for:

  1. Minimum of one (1) fire extinguisher with a minimum rating of 2A10BC, with a California State Fire Marshal approved service tag that reflects a current inspection date, shall be required for each concession using any type of open flame device.  The inspection date shall be within the last twelve months.
  2. Multi-plug connections, frayed/broken electrical extension cords, or cords with less than 12-gage wiring are prohibited.
  3. All L.P.G. tanks (empty or full) shall be secured with a small chain or other approved device and kept a safe distance from open flame.  L.P.G. tanks can be placed into plastic milk crates for protection.
  4. Cooking that requires the use of a deep fat fryer(s) shall provide a minimum of one Class K portable fire extinguisher. Class K extinguisher shall be a minimum of 1.5 gallon in capacity.
  5. No portable generators will be allowed.  All power needed for your booth shall be provided by the event electrical contractor. 
  6. Outdoor cooking that produces sparks or grease-laden vapors shall not be performed inside the booths.
  7. All cooking devices shall be in good working condition. All cooking equipment shall be restricted to UL approved commercial cooking appliances only.
  8. All cooking devices shall be on a flat stable surface.
  9. If wood, charcoal or any other type of approved solid burning material is utilized, the material shall be stored away from any combustible material and usage shall be confined to a cooking device designed for such use/material. All hot material shall be disposed of in a proper container designed for the hot material. Hot material shall not be stored near combustible material. There shall be a method in place to prevent any combustible material from coming in direct contact with the discarded hot material.
  10. Portable vendor carts shall be prohibited from the use of any combustible liquid or gas fuel for the purpose of providing lighting to said carts.

Please remember that the City of Indio Fire Services/Riverside County Fire Department’s primary concern is your safety.  If these fire safety rules are followed we should have a safe and enjoyable Music Festival.  If you have any questions, please call the Indio Fire Prevention office at (760) 347-0756.

Hi Thom, is this the most current load in schedule? I see the date doesn't change when you post an update email. Just checking...Mo

Above is the current load in

The change was we dropped the stop at Wendys, Wal Mart stop 

Ave 52 at Clinton there is a large lot for staging vendors and bbq teams 

Load in times are still the same 

Comment by Michael Gayler on April 20, 2015 at 1:08am

Thom, quick question....can our people park in the GA area if they are not staying overnight on sit?

If General Admission Parking has no requirements for stickers yes 

We will have to confirm that 

People that bought GA tickets were not issued parking passes 

GA Parking is not for overnight parking
