Everyone at Coachella this weekend better make sure their credentials are on point, because there’s a serious crackdown this year, more than ever … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the music fest tell us all staffers have been instructed to meticulously check everyone’s wristbands and passes — especially for VIP areas — because they’ve had issues in the past and don’t want anyone where they don’t belong.
We’re told security’s also keeping a watchful eye out for phone thieves — a big problem last year — and a zero-tolerance policy’s in place for anyone caught jacking personal property. All perps will be arrested on the spot.
We broke the story … there will also be intensive surveillance at Coachella, including drones that will blanket the festival grounds, scanning for ominous looking packages and people.
And as we reported … the fest’s still a no-go on weed.
