on day one i always get there early, and buy my tshirt first thing. then i walk up to the main stage and check out the design. then i take a quick walk around from one end of the field to the other, check out the art, check the sahara setup, make meeting points, and get ready for the show.

i always try to see the act that opens the entire festival. i liked flosstradamus last year.

We have a lot of coachella traditions, this is the fifth year that i've gone and it seems that every year we add a tradition.

The night before coachella.

First stop and light a candle in the Food 4 Less parking lot where we spent the night because we couldn't find a hotel room.
Then we all head over to Rockafire Pizza and get drunk and cheer for the animated muppet concert like it was a real thing.
Just before we go to sleep we all pile in the cars and take a drive around the polo grounds, its great to see the looks on the Coachella Virgin's faces when the see the polo groounds all lit up.

The only other tradition we have is the frozen lemonade ceremony.
The first spoonful of your first frozen lemonade of the festival must be tossed to the ground in a ceremony of giving back to the polo grounds.

Coachella eve we have a bbq at the momo celebrating our arrival and the indulgence of ear candy we are about to experience for the duration of the weekend

first thing I do when walking into the venue is take off my shoes and get the line up booklet...I love those little guys and grab enough for me, my souvenir and to pass to newbies who don't know what time it is!!!

outside - consume as many cold bud lights (the hydrating beer) as possible on trek from car to gate

inside - run to first band I gotta see's stage because too much time was spent on outside ritual

I know this one well, which leads to our tradition of having to rush to the air-conditioned bathroom trailer as soon as we get through the entrance.

Well, seeing as Suffacated helps out with keeping the reefers fueled and the beer at the venue cold, he gets an earlier start to the fest. I, on the other hand, and according to lineups and desires, choose to peer over the wall of our place and watch the traffic and excitement go by until I feel it's time to saunter on down the road anmd join in on the festivities. That's the ritual part...Traditionally, with the amount of people there, we then meet at our favorite area in the front right hand side of the Sahara Stage to see if friends we've made from the years before have made the trek again....From then on, we dance united throughout the rest of the fest. When the reefers need to be fed fuel, he goes while I cruise around checking out the scenery and good vibes from festival goers, then back to the Sahara for out traditional meetup again.

On the first day I always roll a joint. I smoke the joint and drink about a six pack of beer on my way from either the campgrounds or my car to the entrance. Last year I didn't finish the joint so I had to stop at the porta potties near the camping entrance to do so. I almost had heatstroke in there. I chase the beer with a couple of bottles of water for hydration. Then once inside I take a stroll around the perimeter and then plop myself down in the Sahara tent and light up another joint. :)

Intriguing. Really.

On the first day I always have to have a slice of Spicy Pie and a Barrett's Lemonade.

Every morning before we leave the campground to go to the venue we drink an entire fifth of Jack and distribute another fifth to many flasks to sneak in. Once inside we immediately get the little booklet things and go our seperate ways depending on who wants to see what. We reconvene for lunch at the greek vendor and all get gyros and frozen lemonade. Also, if there is a band that someone does not want to watch they go to the Sahara tent usually someone from our group is always there at some point during the day.

Every year I stuff drugs into my shoes until it hurts when I walk through the gates, then I b-line for the port-o-potties and unload. On day two I always have a naanwich but last year I got stiffed. No naanwiches. They better bring them shits back this year.

I always see Perry Farrell's set, no matter what. I feel like I'm not at Coachella until I do that, and I'm not a big fan of his by any stretch of the imagination.

I always get roasted corn on the cob... mmmm.

I use the same booklet every day, mark which sets I've seen and then keep it for posterity. At the end of the festival it's totally grimy and used up, but that's the whole point. Maybe one day I'll frame the ones I have.

1.We head over to a jack in the box ,we dont have them in chicago anymore
2.after we get in I head over to a trailer potty , before they get nasty
3.look for a lil coach booklet
4. head toward the sahara & split up from there.

Its actually not that bad, in fact it can be quite refreshing after taking a shower. We keep all the bottles in a giant cooler so they are always nice and cold.

I don't really have any. I tried to start one this year by bringing bbq chips from Trader Joes and Uno, but nobody was down for either.

I guess, if anything, my new tradition will be standing by the trees at the entrance scoping out the site, getting a booklet, buying a shirt or poster before they run out, and then immediately looking for bbq. That, and smuggling a beer out of the beer garden for an underage camp buddy.

TheWatcher
12-27-2007, 08:50 PM
Nothing special, but the first thing is to grab the booklet and some water. Then, we go look at the art exhibits and take pictures of the empty polo fields and tents. Next, we go wait at the stage with the first band.

theres a great mexican place in a strip shopping center(maybe is there a big lots?)that we found randomly a couple years ago. we always go there on the way in on saturday.
last year we tried to eat at as many different burger joints as we could.
that ruby's diner in downtown palm springs isn't bad.

i make a stiff red bull-vodka to take with me on my walk to the gates, along with a water or 2. then before i'm almost there, i finish them all and hide all my shit. then i walk through the gates, and hit up the porta potties to piss. then i walk/run to whoever i want to see that is playing at the time. this always takes place at least an hour later than i'd like, since my friends are all giant laggers.

Go to a show the night before the first day. And I had setting up camp at sunrise going to a few years, but that ended which sucked and the lack of sleep was a factor. I always go gambling on the way home from Coachella.

So far the ritual has gone thusly:


-First, never leaving West LA on time (I leave sometime in the afternoon Thursday to at least get their by sunset to setup camp)...and then running arbitrary random errands around town before finally getting on the 10 freeway.

-In-n-Out grub stop.

-Having that same shiver every year run up my back and into my brains, right when you finally arrive.

-Making new friends with all of our new neighbors!

-Hastily setting up camping gear, so the quicker you don't have anything to do and are free to party and get fucked up ^_^.

-Having the printout schedule the night before the 1st day, and going over my route of action.

-Getting myself, and everyone around me high as balls in the morning before heading in the gates.

-Yes oh yes, taking a shit load of booklets on the 1st day hahah. Then I walk around the festival grounds, check out new art and everything.

Yeah that place is pretty good. It's in the same complex as the Wallgreens. I think that was the only meal I ate on Saturday besides the mushrooms!!

god damn, you say some pretty bad-ass shit sometimes. i think i love you! ;)

and can you talk to my girlfriend about this ritual? although we are usually with other people, so that might be kind of awkward. we usually manage to have sex by the end of the night though, in our room, rv, tent, wherever we may be sleeping that year. but a bj would be even better. no work for me, lol. :)

I would recommend drinking Gatorade a few hours before leaving the house or hotel. If you bring anything with you take aloe vera gel and three or four frozen bottles of water if you plan on being on the grounds all day. I hope the weather is better this year.

Going to the goddamned Appleby's in Rancho Mirage after checking in to our motel was on the verge of becoming a ritual, just because we couldn't find anything else open late Friday night in 2004-05.

Fortunately, that came to an end.

Inside the venue, the order of operations is restroom, booklets, water, t-shirts....just like everybody else.

the best thing my friends and i do ever year is the post-coachella parking lot party. I fill two ice chests full of beer and let is sit all day while im in the festival. Usually two 12 packs of the good stuff and an 18 pack of the cheapy stuff and last year we had rounds of bloody marys .Whats better than that? I also dont usually drink till the sun goes down so by the time i get to the car its time to do some serious damage. Plus theres no better way to kill time waiting for the traffic to die down. It usually turns into us dancing to the car stereo (Usually to something tastless ..I think last year the track of the night was Maxine Nightingales "Right back where we started from"...Whatever, we have great bad taste). Its great cause you just party and just exchange experiences with the friends of yours you lost and just generally enjoy the post coachella bliss. Jeez i cant wait for parking lot party 2008!

thank you, rage against the machine.

i don't have any rituals. i didn't used to smoke, back in 2003-2005. i smoked a lot 2006-2007. but no like, set plan. i brought in about 15 joints a day though.

this year, i'm tripping and rolling all weekend. and smoking those 15 joints too. but uhm... iunno what else. i'm down to make some rituals. i'm sure something will come to mind with all the drgz.

Get my wristband, go get the schedule, and stand in front of those cool fans in the front entrance. After party at the campgrounds is the shit, I remember after RAGE everybody joined in a yelling wave that swept the campground, but the best thing about camping on site is the day's before the shows you can hear the main stage's sound check.

It makes an appearance in Pee Wees big adventure...its one of those old road side oddities that were built decades ago when Americans took their great American Road Trips. In the Brontosaurus there is a gift shop.

Edit: Oh also an appearance in one of the old Cheerleader Cult films

those dinosaurs also make an appearance in the video for Oasis' Supersonic. I think it was the US version of the video, I forget though.

the same footage was later re-used in their video for Some Might Say, which was made entirely out of footage from earlier videos.

every year I travelled to Coachella thursday after dark, so I never even knew the dinosaurs were there. it wasn't until the coachella film that I found out. last year was the first time I travelled during the day, and the first time I saw the dinosaurs.

Last time I went out to California was to get my bike. I tried to sleep on a blanket, below the dinosaurs, and there was a military convoy there, and after they left, all of these people started taking pictures of stuff, and I decided that I couldn't sleep, and kept driving. It was just then that I remembered pee wee's big adventure, and it kept me from falling asleep.

Because it's never been officially released on DVD (Howard the Duck, that is), which is an absolute travesty. Jeffrey Jones shines in that flick and there's duck boobs -- how can you go wrong?

I usually watch Trainspotting the night before I leave, just gets me in the mood for coachella...probably the underworld songs. In the detox scene where underworld is playing Ewan see's a vision of his girlfriend and she's singing lyrics from Temptation by New Order...when I saw hot chip last year they were playing no fit state and blended it with temptation...the same lyrics the girl was singing. That made me jump and scream.

usually watch the coachella movie the night before, and on the way out on the drive get coffee and water and listen to as many cds of the bands that are playing as we can. when i get in the venue, usually get a water and a schedule and lay under a shade tent to see who i have to miss that day. then i walk around and look at all the art and shit before the first band i want to see plays.

god i love this fucking festival, i remember seeing the movie in the theatres and it got me so pumped for 2006. now i own it and every time i watch it i get this warm feeling inside.

plus im camping this year so ill prob make new rituals regarding that, like taking a shit every morning in the toilets before i find that pleasant vision of poop, jizz, sweat, and vomit all mashed together like cold stones at the bottom of that hole

I knew I couldn't be the only one who did this... After missing last year, I'm gonna also hug a palm and make out with it for awhile.

In the morning at the campsite, I tan my pale Minnesota ass... you know... like when it's only in the mid 80s temp-wise as opposed to the mid 90s. Usually when I go to Cali for the fest, I haven't had real exposure to the sun for a good 4-5 months leading up to this. So it's needed.

Make a Coachella mp3 playlist, land at PSP airport on Wednesday, get off the back of the plane via the staircase and marvel at the 90+ degree sun, get a date shake at Hadley Fruit Orchards, a visit to the Cabazon Dinosaurs, A trip up the tram to enjoy the fresh air and try to spot the polo fields with a telescope, Village Fest in Palm Springs Thursday night, printing out a set times schedule and mapping out a plan, copious amounts of sunscreen applied and always getting some in my eye, get stuck in ridiculous traffic early afternoon on Friday on Monroe Street because I keep forgetting about the other route in, debating over what landmark to meet at inside the festival after we lose each other for most the day, then failing to meet back at agreed landmark.
