How busy will JTNP be this weekend with Coachella going on?

I plan on traveling out and camping this weekend 4\19 but wondering how crazy the crowds will be. I plan on taking my girlfriend and her daughter, so don't really want the riffraff of all the party goers. Thank you for any info you may have.

Coachella is about an hours drive from many parts of JTNP that offer camping, so I doubt many will make the commitment to camp that far away, especially since there is a big campground/party atmosphere right next to the concert site.

Next week is fee free national parks week from April 22-26. When fee free days hit on a weekend, you can typically see much higher park visitation.
