I think it has come down to possibly the toughest decision in my life:
Coachella or Senior Prom?
It's on the same day.

so...?

Prom. We don't take kindly to people who start repeat threads.

gonna need more info. Which day (more than likely Saturday)? How big is that line up for you and your potential prom date? Did you go to the prom last year? If so, how was it? How important is it for you to go to that type of shin dig with your high school chums for the potential last time? Is it more cool for you to make out with you date in the back seat of a car, dance floor, hotel room in the prom areas or back seat of a car, Polo Fields, hotel room/tent in Coachellla?

More info needed for potentially crummy advice.

prom isn't that fun. dance to bad music, or dance to good music. it's your choice.

word. The after parties for prom are the best part about prom and I mean really what are you going to choose just a big house party or a huge ass party on the polo fields?

Prom sucks bro... it's for losers, jocks and wanabee socials or people who had a crappy time in High School. Go to coachella, you will have a better time and so will your date. While your classmates might have some lame prom stories, the Coachella stories will beat any of them.

you won't care about prom for long after you leave high school. coachella memories trump prom.

easy: unless your prom is being held in the sahara tent, go to coachella

I actually had the same exact dilemma last year. What I did (which I'd suggest although I'm not sure how convenient it is for you) was go to Coachella Friday and Prom Saturday (didn't bother schlepping back Sunday because I didn't care about that line-up as much.). Coachella is a yearly occurrence, Prom is not. Plus, the benefit of your problem happening this year is there will certainly be better Coachella line-ups in the future.

My Prom ended up being a bust, but had I not gone to Prom I would have always wondered how much fun it could have been.

So yeah, not sure if I'm any help, but count me as a vote towards Prom.

How important is it for you to go to that type of shin dig with your high school chums for the potential last time? .

In my experience you tend to get thrown in with your dates group of friends and their dates than your own friends (at least if you are a guy). I barely spent any time at the prom with my friends and anyways don't you people have a grad night? Isn't that the "type of shin dig with your high school chums for the potential last time"?

I had an awesome time at both of the proms i went to in high school. Having said that - I would pick coachella any day.

This is the wrong crowd to be asking - a bit biased.

I think BBrown has got some good advice, unless you're a huge Portishead fan.

Prom is once in a lifetime. If you enjoyed HS I so go to Prom. If hs was nothing but a chore for you, throw the finger to the school and hit up Coachella

I went to two junior proms and two senior balls because my girlfriend and I went to schools across town. I am glad I went to at least one of each. I would rather have gone to Coachella though. Not because of my girlfriend or anything, but just because Coachella is awesome.

I thought prom was incredibly fun, but I'd pick Coachella for sure.

Unless Flogging Molly is playing prom it shouldn't be a tough choice. I'd have perfered to take my date to a sweet music and arts fest and smoke doobs on the lawn listening to some serious jams than some spit shit event planned by some not-so-associated student body.
At least I got to smoke doobs at prom though.

wow, I didn't know Pirates went to high school! ARGGGGG!!!

Anyways...I skipped my senior Prom because my junior prom was lame. If this is your only chance to go to Prom, then go. Otherwise you will always wonder about what you missed. You have the opportunity to go to Coachella for the next 20 years.

i went to 3 proms but the one i enjoyed the least was my senior prom. if you're going to skip your prom and go for coachella don't think "i'm missing my prom" and if you go the prom route don't be thinking "i'm missing this band...".

I didn't go to my prom, and I had no other plans. My boyfriend at the time bought me my prom ticket... and I returned it. Looking back, that was kind of harsh. BUT... wearing a stupid dress to go and dance to lame music... boo that. There was 100 parties after anyway...
I didn't go, and I havn't regretted it... and that was 5 years ago so I've had a long time to think about it.
I would definiatly go to Coachella.

There's a Coachella every year, your senior prom is only going to happen once...Go to prom.

is it senior prom? depends on how involved you are in shool.. if high school sucks for you then fuck prom.. it's all about the afterparty anyways and the one after that, and the one after that one too.. :thu

I went to 2 proms. Both sucked!! Tell a bunch of your high school friends to ditch prom with you and all go to Coachella. That way you can have your last shabang with people you may or may not ever see again.

Plus, the music always sucks at prom. Coachella....DUH!

More info is needed before the ruling of this forum can make decisions for you in your life.

But yea Coachella > the best possible prom imaginable... unless Daft Punk was spinning at your Prom, uh yourr Prrrom.

This is what I posted in the other thread:

if your date is into anal: Prom
if not: Coachella

EDIT: Just noticed this is a girl asking the question.

Edit #2: Reasoning still applies.

Go to Coachella.. Seriously.. Prom sucks.. so does High School. If you go, you'll probably be wonder how it was.. but I assure you.. It probably sucked.

I second the opinion that you should get your prom dress, corsage and limo and go to Coachella. You'll have more fun than you will at your prom.

01-29-2008, 04:14 PM
my opinion is to do what most of your friends are doing. if you all go to coachella that is boss. but if you're solo fighting at coachella while all your friends are partying together you'll be like "wtf"... and technically you can see all those bands otherwise. also having a good date helps a lot. my prom personally sucked but yeah i'd go through that "i'd never know" kind of thinking. but if you have no friends and/or hate school fuck it dude. do what jesus would do and go bowling and/or go to coachella.

High school was good to me and prom was great but I'd go with Coachella mostly cause you'll probably have a better time.
