Campers only. If you camp, do you like to party in the camping area after the show or it is right to bed? Feel free to comment about the curfew as well.

partying ended up being pretty chill and mellow this year but definitely hanging out and tripping together while on whatever everyone is on is the best... glad we didnt infringe too much on your quiet group...

You gotta party for at least a couple hours. Maybe not until the horrible wicked sun comes up, but at least for a few hours.

Whoah I was not part of the quiet group. I was in the "solo at the polo" group aka "camp all alone". We were actually pretty loud and having a great time. There were a good 20 of us up to shannagins nightly. The earliest I ever went to bed was probably 3:30am.

Yeah. I'm pretty sure S@theP partied a lot harder that the Party All Weekend group. They were cool guys, but we pretty much showed them up.

oh... you guys were at the end right? With Passive Theory and such?

faxman75
04-29-2008, 02:28 PM
Hmm I thought passive was in the party all weekend group? We were at the end of A though. right in front of the polo field score board.

What group were you in? Party all weekend? What was your official flag by the way? Was it the Dark Side of the moon flag or a pirate flag? We want to lay down the gauntlet for next year and play a fun game of capture the flag. :)

i voted for party even though we usually went back and pretty much crashed ... but i voted party because i didnt care what my neighbors did within reason ... one year we camped some dude sat in front of our tent and sang and played guitar all night .... and just a waa waa, at some fests (waka, roo) the bands play all night (hint hint) x****

Kali27
04-29-2008, 02:29 PM
We were more in at "A" with the Dark Side flag... the party-all-weekend group... it was the best group of people I could've ever envisioned going to Coachella with...

I offsite camp and heading back to the campsite, grabbing a cold one and sitting by the logfire was nice. Real nice. We talked with the folks we met and discussed the day.

I voted before I saw the "campers only" thing. I voted for sleep, but I got very little at my resort this year.

After roger and justice, we went back to our campsite and drank 151 and started a game of kick ball in the corner near the venue. Mounted police stopped it real quick, and they stole our ball. But I did sleep through the whole drum circle on saturday night, while someone stole my Sharks playoff territory towel.

Get ready for the next day, then sleep. I am fine with everyone partying around me. And I guess they cracked down on it a bit sunday? My friends wanted to try and play kick ball and got denied by cops on horses.

Get high, put in earplugs and pass the fuck out. My crew usually gets into Coachella at 12 or 1 and we see bands all day, after that I feel like fucking dying, and I know that no matter when I go to bed the hideous sun will wake me up at 8am anyway so I try to go to sleep as early as possible.

On sunday night I got two hours of sleep, went to bed a 4 and woke up at 6, plus my 8 hour drive home, and work at 6AM today, Im gonna crash so hard.

I was part of the quiet group and the solo group partied more than the party group and the quite group combined.

I was rather impressed.

Kudos.

you're lucky they only took your ball and not your 151. they took an empty bottle of jagermister off us...maybe a shot left. it belonged to someone in the solo at the polo group.

i think my average bedtime was about 4am. i voted party. good times fax.

Yeah. We were debating all weekend as to whether or not we should steal the Party All Weekend flag while they were asleep. I think they finally decided not to do it, but... they deserved it.

lol, I thought it was funny they placed the quiet group right next to the party group. wtf? Glad you didn't hate our noise. We were just having way too much fun. :D Many stragglers from around came to join us at times too.

04-30-2008, 10:34 AM
We didn't even party that hard, it was just pasing and staying up late. I hear the party all weekend group try to blame drugs lol. Trust me, we were far from sober.......So much fun.

How you people still retain enough energy to booze up after is perplexing. I pass out right as I open my tent flap.

Ugghh worst idea ever. It's one thing to be partying with the group around your area or tent but to simply be screaming for people to wake up all night long while banging on shit is absolutley rude and obnoxious. I say this a a member of one of the most fun up most of the night party groups. I just don't see the point of intentionally walking across the entire campground waking people up. Have your part if you want but try to contain to an area at least. :)

Also, I managed to crash pretty quickly each night. I did wake up during the drum circle but felt more inclined to sleep. Pssh

Yeah. I'm pretty sure S@theP partied a lot harder that the Party All Weekend group. They were cool guys, but we pretty much showed them up.

um... did S@theP get gov't issued glowsticks? free acid? a light show? who partied harder now? PAW may not have been loud but it kicked ass. :)

If you camp, there's really no reason not to party.

Thanks. good to see that the people partying all night are trying to be considerate to the sleeper. and likewise, I'm cool with people up all night, you know.. as long as they aren't banging on trash cans and nonsense like that as was mentioned by the other guy.

Would Coachella security do anything to stop that or no? dont know how tight or lax the atmosphere is there.

I started my weekend party on Wed. Nite while packing and had full intentions of joining the Dirty Epic party on Thursday Nite after setting up our teepee. The only problem with that was Pete still had to go get Salah in LA, and by then the tequila and cupcakes were taking over and I was in no shape to wander around alone looking for Lot 5, and ended up passing out with my little teepee light show until Pete finally showed up the next morning to imform me that I ran the battery down to dead. This year I will pace myself while packing and setting up camp, so I can run amuck through the campgrounds whether or not he's there to provide adult supervision...

I have no problem with people partying until 3 or even 4 am, but at that point, the noise should be contained to your own area. A couple hours of quiet before the sun comes up seems like a reasonable compromise.

You gotta party late and socialize at least 1 or 2 nights! The people you meet are awesome! (yes, you included)

Yessir! Drinkin till the sun comes up...or at least starts to, then much like the feeling of walking out of a Vegas strip club at sunrise...i quickly begin to crash until the heat hits me. Then it's hide & go seek from the Sun all morning while napping.

i feel like well planned power naps will be a life saver for me that weekend.

i wonder if sucking down a good amt of vitamins a few days before hand will help...keep those b vitamins high

I don't get why you would camp there if you need more than 5-6 hours of sleep a night. One of the main reasons I go to coachella is to take uppers and downers like I'm Elvis Presley circa 75, if you can't party into the next day and still get enough sleep then you haven't practiced enough. Between the beer, whiskey, Molly, Lucy and Xanax I have never had trouble artificially maintaining energy and inducing sleep. The key is knowing when to use what.
