I thought it was funny as hell. Walked around until about 4:00-4:30 just watching it all.

I was tired and sore as hell, I barely had the energy to walk around with it. Though my 21st was that Sunday (and technically-speaking the parade was Sunday morning), and I was half-tempted to run into the middle of the crowd, shout that, and see what happened.

Kinda disappointed that I didn't. :(

yeah it was only one guy and it made sporatic appearances.... but when it was out we were jamming around with it.

the main sources of music were trashcan drums and drunken chanting.

I tried to start the "bring us prince" chant until someone asked what we would do with him and i couldnt think of a good answer, also the guy yelling "get out of here! your ruining the neighborhood!" made me laugh. Was i the only one who wanted to ride the pirate ship we were passing around?

The parade was the highlight of the festival for me! It all finished up at like 7 in the morning when we were all singing 'you are my sunshine'. The security came over and told us we had done well to last until morning. There must have been only like 20 of us left by the end. That's why I come from Scotland for the festival. Cracking stuff.

anyone have vid footage of the madness?

we stayed up all night on friday so I passed out without hearing a thing on sat... according to the Aussie girl standing next to me at RW she heard some noises, something to the effect of "rrrrah... rrrrahhh" she thought someone was puking their guts out until she turned around and saw two guards jumping on some guy going "RAHHHH" pretending to be a f'n lion! haha

The noise woke me up, and even without looking out my tent, I knew that it was a drunken parade. Glad everyone had such a blast, I was too knackered to join the fun.

Ok, I had gotten back from Prince, and passed the fuck out. My friends said "dude, its sat. night, lets party" So I started to wander and found the party and drum circle. Holy crap, that was soooo much fun! I lasted until about 3:30am and then passed out again in my tent fully clothed.

I got pics, but I have to re-size them. (its 8am on sunday, i need coffee first)

That night was hilarious. Especially when the cops tried to break it up and all of a sudden about 20 American flags were passed out in the crowd. That changed the dynamics of everything since now we were the patriots on the same side as the cops lol! Very nice touch whoever brought those. They couldn't touch us.

The parade was pretty entertaining. Our camp group was up until sunrise so we couldn't complain about the noise. I feel a little bad about the people sleeping though.

I fell asleep through it all, but I guess during the parade it stopped by my tent, but I was so tired, I tried to start the same thing on sunday night but everyone was pooped, and we played kickball and got the ball stolen from the cops. Funny thing is it was one of those exercise ball and I told that fat cop he could use it for sit ups, he had no reply.

My favorite part was when some dumbass was spinning the pirate ship above his head like he was Ric Flair about to suplex it, he sure showed that inflatable toy.

That was fun. I got a few great reactions telling people that Prince was there. Kind of a douchey thing to do, but a few girls starting screaming and ran through the crowd trying to get to where I said he was. Priceless entertainment. But karma's a bitch and I lost my brand new sunglasses and a lot of drugs that night. Serves me right for being a douche.

My neighbors and I got the party train started, whilst rocking "Da Funk" on my ghetto blaster.

Then it snowballed into the afterparty. What an awesome night.

If that was the highlite of the festival for you, please don't come again. Thank you.

100+ artists and the highlight was people banging on recycling bins.....awesome.

That's funny, because in my sleepy deliriousness...when I heard the noise, my brain said "I guess Prince moved the party out here cause of the noise curfew." I had left around 12:15, and "Let's Go Crazy" was playing when I fell asleep, so for all I knew, he never stopped playing.

Daft Fro Is that you Alex? It's me Levi. I remember saturday. That was my favorite night of Coachella and probably the second favorite night of my life. I remember you with boom box and everything. does anybody have any pictures or videos. I'd love to see some of them. that was the craziest night I wish i would've stayed longer. Sounded like it got even better after i left.

Oh god, you should have heard the security detail on their walkies "you wouldnt believe what there doing now!!! They're banging on trash cans and shit" One security guy was yelling at another security officer, "whats the protocol for this, we cant have em doing this all night", the security personnel I thought for sure were going to lose it and start getting physical, but they kept their peace, lets get this parade riled up for '09.....WOO!!!!!! HOO!!!

the problem with taking video was that it was so dark, i tried. this years version we need to find a way to include lighting so that video can properly be taken. somebody go work on that (or not)

note to all campers bring ear plugs and sleep with them, it will inevitably occur in 09

I remember this whole procession stopped right outside my tent and tried to get us to join. We were in the giant blue tarp and they spent a good 15 minutes trying to get us to march. Or so it seemed. We were drunk and sleepy.

Saturday night was the only night I passed out early... I was pissed when I woke up and my neighbors were talking about it. Sucks too nothing big went on on Sunday since they brought in more mounted police to patrol the campsite

We should get the Flaming Lips to host the parade.

So much fun,just started walking around and eventually turned into a huge mob which met up with other mobs then randomly stopping to play drums on trash cans, crowd surfing, and chanting stupid shit like "five dollar footloooooong!" hahaha stayed out till 4 in the morrrrning.

That's some funny shit ^. The American flags were sweet. My buddy pierced one of the inflatable balls with the stick on the flag. The greatest part about it is that the security and cops thought it was gonna be like '07 and we were just having a good time. GV needs to tell their security to relax.
