I remember us having a thread quite similar to this last year, and it was quite entertaining.

So, what are 5 things that you want to have happen at Coachella 2008? here are mine:

1. Jack Johnson plays at the same time as Fatboy Slim, and JJ gets the larger crowd, making a less-crowded Sahara Tent

2. Kraftwerk blow me mind and make my trip worthwhile.

3. Gogol Bordello doesnt conflict with Justice. Same goes to Booka Shade.

4. either Mogwai or Sigur Ros gets added to Friday or Saturday.

5. meet cool people/experience new bands.

- For it to not be 100*.
- For there to be few conflicts.
- That I enjoy it as much as I did last year.
- For see something amazing like with RyG last year.
- For Roger Waters show to be everything we hope it will be.

1. PJ Harvey gets added to Friday to headline the Outdoor Theatre opposite Jack Johnson

2. Cafe Tacuba is taken off the main stage and replaced by Spiritualized, thus creating the most awesome Main Stage flow of bands I've ever witnessed: DCfC -> Spiritualized -> Portishead -> Kraftwerk

3. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds get added Sunday and play opposite My Morning Jacket on the Outdoor Theatre

4. The following EDM acts are added Friday or Sunday:
* Goldfrapp
* Royksopp
* Ratatat
* Sound Tribe Sector 9
* Autechre
* Junior Boys
* Thievery Corporation
* The Avalanches
* The Orb

5. I have a great time, meet new bands, and come back cherishing the experience regardless of the results of 1-4.

1. ditto betao's #1
2. hear some great new band/singer that I haven't heard before
3. no waiting in line - ever or nowhere
4. meet some cool people from the board
5. get my daughter (3 yrs) in for a couple of hours to experience the good energy and then easily hand her over to my mom at an exit before it gets dark, so she can go back to the house and rest peacefully while we continue on with the festivities

I would like:

1. to be near the front of the stage for Portishead and Kraftwerk, rolling.

2. the Chemical Brothers to be added to Friday and close out the Sahara after an awesome Fatboy Slim set.

3. to not have to use the restroom the entire weekend. (Last year I just had to piss once. I love my digestive system sometimes.)

4. to have a band I don't research and get excited about in advance still blow my face off the way Soulwax did last year.

5. to not have awkward conversations with people on the board. I'd still like to meet some people, just hope it's not weird like it has been in the past.

How the fuck do you get your hands on ketamine? That is the one thing that I have never even had the oppertunity to try. I have never even heard of anyone I know getting the oppertunity. I have been holding onto some 2CI for like two years. dont know if I wanna take it seeing as how I never have before and would hate to have a bad experience at coachella.

but sounds like you got an awseome weekend planned there

I went to the U also and every year coachella fell on the weekend before finals. Hence why I havent made it yet. I even bought tickets for 2005 and had to sell them the day before. Fucking sucked. My ex told me that coachella is once again the weekend before finals. So ... yeah good luck man. might as well just drop your classes now

1. Jack Johnson playing at the same time as Pendulum.

2. To be in the front for Kraftwerk which hopefully will play before Portishead.

3. Justice closing the Sahara tent on sunday, against Roger Waters.

4. Sebastian and Kavinsky get diarrhea and fever a week before the festival, and the only replacements available at the time are Autechre.

5. Tipper and/or Freestylers playing at the Dome.

Go to an all night techno electronic disco dance rave party. K was actually pretty popular in like 2002.. but has died down a lot.. but it's still around.

p.s. I would never recommend buying drugs in Mexico.

2CI, in my limited (tried twice) experience, is decidedly mellow and lucid. Obviously, dosage and one's idiosyncratic reaction are factors in these observations, but I would expect it to be a relatively safe choice (relative to other more destructive substances).

Most of the 2C-* drugs seem to be on the more mellow side of psychedelics.. Also, I think getting 2C-I would be harder to get than K.

Your drug strategy is amateur, although admirably excessive. DMT for Waters is a complete mismatch, rolling two days in a row is going to be a waste, mixing oxy with rolls is contraindicative, and the K should be used Saturday more than Friday by far.

1. Get really close for the Black Lips
2. Kraftwerk=Daft Punk
3. Make-out with some girls that are friends that I haven't seen in a while.

5. Pink Floyd reunion, mostly for bragging rights

1. My Bloody Valentine gets added and overshadows the first day.
2. Cocteau Twins co-headline Sunday and play "Frou-Frou Foxes In Midsummer Fires" and finish their set with "Bluebeard."
3. Portishead plays "It's A Fire."
4. Kraftwerk plays after Portishead on the main stage and blows me away.
5. Soak in everything on Sunday while laying on the grass.

TeamCoachellaHellYeah
02-02-2008, 07:21 AM
1. That Thom Yorke decides to show up to check out the festival and does a one off with the Modeselektor...

2. Saturday becomes conflict free for me and I can see full sets of: Kraftwerk, Portishead, DCFC, Spiritualized, M.I.A. and Cafe Tacvba.

3. We get more adds to Friday to make up for the lack of bands (that I want to see anyways).

4. That Portishead, Kraftwerk (even though I have seen them already) and Roger Waters live up to my expectations of them.

5. To leave with lots of great memories...

To have a continuous smile

To see all the acts I want to

To discover two groups I had no idea about and LOVE

To be apart of that one poignant moment we share at the same time, realizing there wont be a moment recreated like this for a very very long time. (usually happens during one of the night sets or sunset)

and finally give me good weather, somewhere around 2005 temps and not 2004.

im so indie
02-03-2008, 10:19 AM
1. Battles closes the Outdoor Theater opposite JJ on the main stage, which makes "Inaudible Melodies" literally inaudible.

2. Modeselektor plays after dark and scares the shit out of my girlfriend while she's rolling

3. Deacon shows up with Animal Collective and they play "Grass", "We Tigers", and "For Reverend Green"

4. Akron/Family gets the entire tent singing along and dancing to "Ed is a Portal".

5. Gogol Bordello does not conflict with Roger Waters.

5 or more Things I Want To Happen at Coachella 2008

1. To rain (may be just drizzle or little bit so as not to mess the tents at camping) and for weather to not hit > 100s (Or for it to stay in 80s and low 90s during the day)

2. I will have more time for relaxation and socializing with all the nice people in the festival (& that I will still be able to see all my must-see bands). Leave or go home with even more awesome and unforgettable memories. If I have to meet people at this board accidentally, I hope they are my favorite posters of the board.

3. All my must-see bands I would be able to check out will blow me away (and that the much-needed more great acts will be finally added few days after I posted this).

4. I hope to see and be with great music fans during Kraftwerk, Hot Chip, Metric, The Swell Season, The Verve, Spiritualized, Portishead, Simian Mobile Disco, Animal Collective, 120 Days, Holy Fuck, The Raconteurs ... (refer to my sig for some more). That they (those fans) will do it right with me (rock & party like true music fans) during those shows.

Oh well, I would love to meet some of my favorite acts in the grounds when they are not performing.

5. Excellent or better food selection inside the festival (vendors selling gross looking/tasting food should be banned), e.g, In N Out Burger etc.
