View Full Version : ATTN SMOKERS / Barefoot Thread

ATTN SMOKERS: Due to the heat and the general hippy nature of the festival, many festival-goers will choose to ditch their shoes for the feel of soft grass of the polo fields between their toes. PLEASE do not litter with cigarette butts, and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you must smoke and litter then at least make sure your butts are completely extinguished (ie. test for heat with your fingers) before tossing them! last year I had the unpleasant experience of stepping on a lit cigarette in the dark and damn did it sting and scare the crap out of me! That goes for roaches as well.

ATTN MUSICLOVERS: SO in explanation of the above statement, last year on Friday me and my friends wore shoes and found our feet became incredibly hot/sweaty. We noticed a large number of people going barefoot and since my parents have a summer cabin on a lake where I ran around barefoot for most of my childhood/teenage years I was all up ons.
The first day we carried our shoes around, then sat and sun we left them in the tent. There is no gravel anywhere near, and the polo pitch grass is incredibly pleasant, plus due to the dry heat of the desert it tends to stay quite clean and definitely does not attract mud (though there is a patch of sandy road between the campsite and the parking lot, but the dust in the air will cake you within a few hours so it didn't really bother us a lot). I therefore HIGHLY RECOMMEND making like a hobbit/hippy and going barefoot it is absolutely splendid, with the only major risks being cigarette butts as I have noted above (though I was the only one in my group unfortunate enough to step on one, and i jumped off immediately so there was no actual burn damage; therefore I deem it to be worth the risk).

i would be more worried about spit/puke/piss/etc. than a lit cig.

Toughen up dude I put roaches out on my tongue and roaches don't stay lit long enough for you to come along, step on them and get burned by your calloused foot...just say'n!!!

The weather for Download '06 was great, so mud wasn't a problem. It was the trash all over the place that got out of hand.

Oh yeah. If you do toss your plastic water/soda bottle on the ground, take the cap off first. They're really easy to slip on when you step on them with the caps on. Kinda like a mini rolling log.

I always go barefoot until about sunset, then my shoes go back on. I've never had a problem stepping on anything.

don't forget to put sunblock on your feet.

sandles are not an acceptable substitute for going barefoot.

I have a great idea -- how about if no one litters at all?

There are trash cans all over the place. It's not that hard to toss your used crap (water bottles, extinguished cigarette butts, uneaten chinese food, underwear that you decided just weren't comfortable anymore, etc) where it belongs.

I never litter and really don't understand how people feel OK just dumping their shit wherever they feel like it.

We are not children in the giant room with a bunch of balls or at chuckEcheese. Please put on shoes. If you don't, you may step on something like a lit cigarette.

Thank you. Also, feet smell worse than ciggs do, so please wash your feet if you are wearing flip flops/sandals or anything like that.

actually going barefoot is not that bad and has nothing to do with hippies which I really dont like either. Feels nice in the tents in the beginning of the day but later its a good idea to put those sandals/shoes back on.

The grass was pretty clean, and while I wouldn't walk around like that, it's nice to sit or stand and watch a show like that. I seriously don't remember smelling funky feet over the BO of every guy who was sweating his ass off and hadn't showered. :P

i usually switch off between sandals and being barefoot. most of the time sandals, but if im parked in one spot for a while, or just feel like giving my feet some freedom, i'll go barefoot for a bit. its too fuckin hot out there for shoes. and after walking around a while in whatever footwear you prefer, taking off your shoes and feeling the soft grass under your feet feels pretty damn good. i highly suggest it.

03-03-2008, 04:39 PM
I rocked flip flops last year, but when standing all day even those hurt the soles, so I took them off various times during the day and let my feet enjoy the spongy grass and it was lovely....

Except when I stepped on a lit cig butt. Haha, but I'm not complaining.... much. That's just the risk when you go barefoot. It did sting, but didn't do any major damage. Having gone in tennies before, which is feet torture, I'll take the risk of cig butt burn anyday. And I'm not even a hippie. As for dirty feet.... That's what baby wipes (during the fest) and a good pedicure (afterward) are for.

Astrid
03-03-2008, 04:48 PM
underwear that you decided just weren't comfortable anymore
um....WHAT?

do people really do such things? i was under the impression people who didnt like wearing underwear, just dont. do people really get bored of their skivvies mid-day and just say hey fuck it i'm taking this shit off...?


anyways, walking barefoot is nice, i enjoy it. but you have to realize you are taking a risk. people shouldn't litter, its lazy and it's fucked, but you have to take responsibility for your own well-being. if you aren't smart enough to think, "wow, i'm not wearing shoes and i'm surrounded by thousands of lazy disgusting bastards, i should look where i step", then i'm sorry for you.

Let me clue you in on all of this horseshit talk...I used to tend bar during the polo season in the clubhouse that overlooks the campsite afew years ago, as well as that little cantina acrossed the field. The whole camping area was used for polo and the sidelines were where the players tied their horses between matches...Trust me, a horse can eat and shit all at the same time, as well as gallop across the field in a high goal match doing the same...I wouldn't get too cozy in the grass, kids...

Coachella has to be one of the few festivals in the world where you can go barefoot. I've done it the last two years during the day. I bring my shoes with me and there's a point in the early evening where the shoes have to go back on (due to accumulated debris). Until then it's bliss. Although last year the field was pretty tore up in the Sahara by Sunday...

You wouldn't be so pissed off at smokers if you realized how much taxes were tacked onto each pack of cigarettes. it has almost gotten to the point of being comparable to that of the gas taxes.

i smoke parlament lights for a bit when they had buy 1 get 1 for awhile so i might go to those just to protest camel switching.

Camel definitely screwed me by messing with their lights... idiots.

Maybe I'll give parliaments a try again, good suggestion.

the new camel lights aren't that bad, but i agree, parliament just took the lead.

its not that they are bad but that they change something perfect for no reason.

furthermore, before they changed they sent me a promo pack. it was this huge box that opened up trifold to show the original packaging, the classic packaging, and then in the middle an empty pack of the new kind, all that was in it was one dollar off coupon. it was the most grossly overkill thing ever.

Isn't messing with Camel Lights kinda like changing the formula of Coca-Cola?

Oh, I guess they did that anyway.

After reading this thread I'm really deliberating about whether I wanna take the shoes off and go barefoot a little bit at Coachella this year. I wanted to last year but didn't. Gotta live a little.

I have a great idea -- how about if no one litters at all?

There are trash cans all over the place. It's not that hard to toss your used crap (water bottles, extinguished cigarette butts, uneaten chinese food, underwear that you decided just weren't comfortable anymore, etc) where it belongs.

I never litter and really don't understand how people feel OK just dumping their shit wherever they feel like it.

The hard-working people of Indio make a pretty penny picking up my litter. Think of the hundreds of groundskeepers who scour the polo fields from closing to opening every night of the festival. You're asking that we just sack these poor folks? The U.S. economy is already in the shitter. If you don't litter than you're just part of the problem, economically that is. And while I admire the idea of spending the whole festival bare-foot, prancing around without a care in the world, I ask you free-spirits one question: What do you do when entering the porta-potties? Surely this should be much more of a concern than cigarette butts. The floors of those honey-potts are littered with urine, feces, menstral blood, and if we're to believe some of the posts on this board, SEMEN!!!!! But I can definitely see how cigarette butts are your main concern.

I carry sandals which I put on when using the porta-potties; I don't expect them to be safe to walk barefoot on.

But on the festival lawn, cigarette butts are my primary concern: the other trash isn't going to hurt me, and I can usually dodge injuries inflicted by other peoples' shoes.

I could only imagine all people who spit on the grass, the dog shit stepped on and God knows what other things people have stepped on in the porto-potties. I can't bring myself to go barefoot.

You overthink it all. And there are no dogs soooo. Also wear the flip flops in the restrooms, thats just common sense.

I only drop my butts if I don't want to lose my spot, and then I not only make sure that they are out, I even push them down into the grass/dirt a bit. So there.

i would be more worried about spit/puke/piss/etc. than a lit cig.

how considerate of you all to give such sound advice - please everyone just try to keep in mind -- you pay you play - instant karma1 - be gr8 in 08 please let this be the year...................

In 2001, I wore sandals that were relatively new. I had some wicked blisters on my feet before I even made it in the gate because of the sand in the parking lot. I HAD to go barefoot for the rest of the festival, and while it was pretty nice during the day, I stepped on some unidentifiable shit once it was dark. I don't even want to know what it was...let's just say it was squishy and gross. No cigarettes though so I guess I got lucky there.

My feet hurt so bad the next day from walking around barefooted that I just make sure to wear very comfortable shoes now.
