I've never been, and I'm probably not ever going to go, but I just wanted to hear some cons from a large group of people, if possible.

My disinterest stems mainly from the extremely large crowds, the seemingly militant security/rules, and the location (heat? is is hot? cause fuck heat).

If you're talking about this year's Coachella, I dislike all the number of ignoramus who post the same thread every fucking minute on why they loath the lineup.

The security isn't that tough to get around and certainly aren't militant.
There are a lot of people there but the festival is set up well so its not really an issue.
It is hot but that just means you'll get a tan and look better.

You should just stay inside 24/7 where its nice and safe:)

I think the line about militant security is really hilarious. Where are you getting your information from?

Just because you don't want to/can't afford to go doesn't mean you need to dig up dirt on Coachella to justify your poor decision.

The pros outweigh the cons 100,000,000,000:1

Security is kinda a joke. Yeah they check your stuff when you come in and they have 'beer gardens' where you are allowed to drink, but it's pretty laid back. Everybody brings in their favorite drugs easily and if you're underage and wanna drink, just pick up a wristband off the ground.

Security isn't bad at all.

It is hot as balls though...but part of the sweaty/toocloseforcomfort fun!

I like the heat. The vibe, the enthusiastic crowds, and the music is all that matters to me.

wtf? its 3 days out of your life...3 days of being hot, dirty, and in a crowd. do you have any idea how fun coachella is? 3 days of being slightly inconvenienced to party like that is a very small price to pay. coachella is fucking world class.

I have been to Coachella many times and have always been amazed on how cool and good the lineup is. But what happend this year?... The lineup is really bad and the price is way way too expensive. The only good thing though is that it's not going to be too crowded.

from what i've seen from photos and shit it looks too overcrowded for my enjoyment. what can i say? i hate people, so the less the better.

thank you for your honest opinion.

here, in various replies all over the fucking place, and don't ask for references, cause i'm way too fucking lazy and i seriously don't care enough in the least to bother.

can't afford? lol, try and be more juvenile.

"beer gardens"... that's the kind of crap i'm talking about. anyway your experience w/ security is opposite to what i've heard, but thanks for passing that knowledge to me.




i enjoyed vegoose last year, and ATP in 2003/2004 (no i'm not cool enough to have gone any years prior)

anyways, my taste in music has changed in the past few years such that i'm not as likely to be into shit that's playing at coachella to begin with.

and i'm not really keen on being around sweaty hippies (i confess to being a hypocrite: now) for 3 days. especially in the heat, because fuck heat. and fuck sunburns and tans. you know what? DOUBLE FUCK tans.

whatever. i had a more organized response than that, but it's gone out the window.

No one here seems to have any 'cons's...

And the questions you have asked, you've answered yourself...to the 'con' side...am I missing somethng? So it's not so obvious why ask questions you alreaday have answers to...

In two years, I have never had a prob with security, the venue is absofuckinglutely beautiful, the scenery is top notch, the art installations are fascinating, there is plenty of room, and there is reasonably tasty food available...

It is hot though, near 100ļ in the day...but it's a dry heat, and I didn't sweat that much, at least outside the tents...and the tents give cover from the sun, if you don't want a tan...

So, some 'pro's'...to your 'con's'...

Security is a joke so that is a pro a con would be the weather its hot but u get used to it honestly another con though is the porta potties lol man anyone who has been to coachella knows about that... but this year i was totally pissed about the line up and how coachella let me down but i think about my first year going to coachella and i remember i didnt know half the people that were playing but by the end of the weekend i had so many new bands to listen to i recommend that everyone goes to coachella except for the guy that started this thread cause you sir are a douche!

Coachella is a passion of mine, but being completely honest:

1. The heat...god damn the heat!
2. People pushing their way in front of you 5 minutes before the set begins after you've been standing there for 2 hours. This is not exclusive to Coachella, as it seems to happen at every GA show I attend.


I think that's it. I freaking love Coachella.

I hate that I cannot bring in bottled water from the outside. I hope ten old bottles equals a free bottled water this year, like it was last year.

Militant Security? Have you been talking to that random dude from last year who's gf was 'felt up' as he helplessly watched? Security is barely there.

Only real con is the heat. And that's unavoidable

Traffic trying to get to the show and how tired you are after are the only cons. The middle is all sweet and tasty.

But seriously I was on the verge of killing someone, or atleast killing myself and taking a few down with me, when I was stuck in traffic for over an hour less than a mile away from the event.
