The Coachella campgrounds are the Wild West of the festival. They are the sort of place you can imagine Hunter S. Thompson running around with his pants around his ankles. Drugs are more plentiful than food and going to bed before 4 a.m. is considered an early night. Campers built incredible structures to house their debaucheries, though not all of them held up in the face of Sunday's sandstorm. Here are some of the most dementedly wonderful Coachella campsites. Hopefully they inspire the Weekend 2 campers to step up their tent game.

The Unicorn Compound This morning at dawn this campground was still blasting Chief Keef, no doubt believing their car to be an actual unicorn.

The Apocalypse Now Tent This tent proved that you should never combine knives and hard liquor. The horror! The horror!

Retro Campers People embraced the retro-vibe this year; smoke-filled Winnebago's were as common as bros in neon tank tops. It was nice to see a smattering a hippies playing Creedence Clearwater Revival out of their cars despite all EDM bass drops blasting out of the polished sound systems of Sahara-tent goers.

Sandstorm Destruction On Sunday a strong wind kicked up that turned into a full on standstorm by the time Wu-Tang Clan hit the stage. When people got back to their campsites after the fest closed, many found a Mad Max style setting waiting for them.
