I'm wondering how long exactly the festival lasts on friday's event.


I can't wait to be there...my home turf...all the way from Ohio!

Way too easy.

Last year, Friday started pretty late compared to the other days. First acts were at 2pm, and the outdoor theater didn't get rolling until about 3:30

On Saturday, there were a couple acts that started before 1pm. On Sunday, everyone started between 1 and 1:30.

The Sahara tent started at 2pm every day.

This year, I would expect Friday to start a little earlier. Gates are open at 11am every day. Seems like they opened an hour later on Friday last year.

To be fair, we've got one year to go on. We don't know what the plans are, or if they even exist yet.

Friday had fewer acts last year. This year, Sunday is the day short on acts, though probably for a different reason.

Can anyone confirm my memory that gates opened later on Friday last year? This year, gates are scheduled for 11am each day.

I can't find my Coachella schedule book right now... I was just going to look at it to find out. But didn't gates not open until 12:00 or 12:30 on Friday last year?

I just went and got mine...no gate times listed in the booklet. But your memory is matching up with mine.

Totally off topic, but looking at the Dome Schedule, there sure are a lot of acts coming back for the main stages this year. Adam Freeland, Paul from Pendulum, Busy P, DJ Mehdi, members of Autolux, and everyone from Love & Rockets. (Though Daniel Ash didn't show.)

BTW...was that THE Andy Rourke in the dome right before Lady Miss Kier? How did I not notice that?

(Tricks up sleeve= Smiths and Dee-Lite reunions... ;) )

I recall gates opening at 11 am each day. though the acts may have started a little later on Friday. I haven't bothered to check on that, though.

That's OK...the three or four of us who posted exactly when everything started each day DID check on it. ;)

We're just not sure when the gates opened. I suppose there's not really a way to check.

EDIT- ran a search for posts. Found some references to gates opening at 11am all three days, and some for noon all three days. None about Friday opening late...I must be wrong.

I'm probably thinking of Vegoose, where they opened 30 minutes before the first act each day, but it was different each day.
