I still love coachella with all my heart though and not even likin park could discourage me from going.


What if Linkin Park turned out to be the people who stole your tickets?
Or if Nickelback was headlining?

Missing the NFL draft, but we shouldn't have to deal with that this year because of the time change. YES

Haha, I had forgotten about that issue. As of last year's Coachella I was Raiders fan. Terrible, I know.

But I definitely remember frantically texting a buddy of mine for draft updates that weekend.

Oh and FTR, I'm now a Houston Texans fan.

Worst moment: Being followed to the camp grounds Thursday night by some creepy old dude who decided to set up shop right next to me and my best friend.

Best moment: Getting a free condo friday night and saturday night and not having to be creeped out by the creepy old dude all weekend.

That might be better. Then I could hate them more.

This creepy old dude wouldn't have been sporting much-too-short shorts and riding a bicycle and following you to the PAW camping group, would he? This sounds like the scenario I vaguely remember playing out.

If it's the same dude, for the record, he randomly camped with our group all weekend. Smoking Cotton, his name was. A legend, to be sure.

God, Diplo sucked so hard at Coachella.
It really was tragic.

My friend didnt print his tickets the night before and they wouldnt print in the morning, so we had to go to BFE and find a ticketmaster place to get his tickets. Then we spent like half the day friday trying to get the whole fuckin situation figured out because they wouldnt scan.

Yes that would be him.... He parked his car next to mine as we arrived and followed my best friend and I to the PAW group where I was going to camp but got the free condo instead. Nice guy, but way creepy for following in hindsight.

A keyboard and drums would do for the live version. They are a live band, afterall. Pressing one keyboard button that has the song stored in its memory while the two members sing the lyrics is not the same as actually performing. I'd rather them not perform the song at all if they can't play the same riff and beat on real instruments -- I can't remember if its Soulwax or someone else, but another DJ act has done a band cover of this song live better than they have.

when in doubt, it's soulwax

if I have a song in my itunes that is untagged and I really like it I just put soulwax as the artist because it is probably correct

after standing up front for death cab, kraftwerk, portishead, then dancing during prince, i couldnt walk. i got edema in my ankles, had to spend some time in the med tent. a nice guy in a golf cart gave me a ride back to camp. i sat and watched the campground parade and prayed to the coachella gods that id be better in time for gogol on sunday. luckily coachella gods answer prayers.

starting my period on sunday. drugs having their toll on my mental state and my ovaries.
it feeling 180 degrees and having to take down a tent.
waking up that day to my toothbrush being stuck in mud/dirt/grass.
bud luster looking at me like i am a whiny bitch.
my fucking hair.

then every tween in the sahara tent on sunday.

leaving coachella was surreal, so surreal that i couldn't figure out how to open the bathroom door at the am/pm we stopped at. however, after reading the boards i was really lucky she let me use the bathroom.. however hard it was to open that door.

im a cunt.

Waking up either Saturday or Sunday morning, already feeling sick and really having to pee but not being able to stop gagging everytime I walked near the portojohns. Then I had to walk to the car so we could go to the hotel room and nap/shower/eat and having to get sick in a plastic bag while my sister and our friend had to listen. I hate getting sick period but I sure as shit don't want an audience.

DAMN!!! Actually I am usually the rock star who can party for days straight without getting ill. I blame lack of food, over abundance of vodka/beer, dehydration and the smell of the portojohns. It was my first coachella, I have learned. Rehydrate, Eat something besides half a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich and avoid portojohns when hung over.

friday, i developed a TERRIBLE headache and had no advil and there was none to be found anywhere, passed out on the ground to jack johnson, then went back to the hotel with a raging headache, passed out for about 30 mins, then woke up and puked for about 3 hours, then it dissapeared out of nowhere. and i wasnt drinking any alcohol =(

After reading this the other day, I came across a few songs that were untagged. And I couldn't help but consider naming them Soulwax...

Yes, drink more water and make sure you eat enough this year. In '07 I got heat stroke waiting in line to get in on Friday. I was begging people around me for a sip of water but nobody had any. I could feel my vision going but then I saw a girl at the front of the line with a Gatorade. She refused to give me some even though the security was about to take it! I passed out and woke up to a giant security guard whisking me away to the ambulance.

Anyway, once you get it you are more prone to getting it again.

falling asleep Friday night in the grass outside the mojave tent while waiting for fatboy slim to come on... the culmination of dehydration, being awake for 48ish hours because of piss poor planning and traveling from the east coast. After seeing what a clusterfuck the sahara was that night, I headed back to my tent and was tortured with noise from Jack Johnson whilst trying to get to sleep. that sucked ass!

I somehow managed to sleep 'till 10 and with the help of a lot function drinks, I danced my ass off for the next two days. I learned my lesson and this year will be much smoother.

Getting too drunk and high right before M.I.A came on. Somehow lost my friend, passed out as I was repeated slammed into the front barrier. I then started screaming for a security guard to help me because I was having a hard time breathing and they just stared at me sort of laughing. I climbed over and then somehow was on stage, a security guard pushed me off into that four foot drop as hard as possible, I was told I was going to get kicked out of Coachella and then I ran away. I had no phone, and no friends around. I asked some guy if I could use his phone to call my friends and his only response was, "Well... Yeah!... If you f uck me!" I had to drunkenly ask 19 people before some guy would help me out. I finally found my friends an hour later after calling them for 20 minutes and them hanging up because they "were listening to animal collective."

That sucked almost as bad as seeing uffie....

Leaving Early during Fatboy Slim.

Walking all the way to see Professor Murder only to realize I should be at the sahara tent with everyone else because the few people that were actually in the audience were being a major buzzkill.

and finding a discarded bag of weed by the do lab. Oh wait that was awesome!

One year we shared a cab from our hotel to Coachella - it was great. What wasn't was after the show, when there wasn't a cab to be found. We walked for miles aimlessy until we found a hospital, and then talked two strangers in the waiting room into dropping us off back at our hotel.

In 07, we were all hanging out in the parking lot baking in the Sunday sun having some drinks. We all decide to pack up and head on in. Our driver was passed out in the driver seat and his keys were missing. We searched all through our packed belongings. Every last bag. We could hear all the bands playing but we couldn't lock up the truck or wake up our friend. My sister and her bf decided to go in and left me with the drunk. There was a locksmith on hand but he charged over a hundred to duplicate the key. A guy we met earlier was our culprit for stealing the key. So we decide to move the truck and 'hide' it from him. So we finally make it up to the gates. And the freakin keys were in my bag, right there. It was mortifying!!!

Ladies, Keep your eyes on your valuables when going through the check in line. The security guys go through your purse but turn away when they do it. I yelled at the guy for pocketing my ticket! And wish I had held onto my money too. Who knows how many people he stole from or attempted to steal from. Fucking security guys. Most are honest but I had this big ass fuck going through my things and wouldn't let me see what he was doing!

Be wary of their tactics. Can't see what they're doing, grab your stuff from them & tell their supervisor.

Get a skinny security guard to look through your stuff.

Always, always HOLD onto your cash, cell phone, ticket, camera, iPod. Put it all in a clear plastic bag and never let it out of your sight when going through the check in lines! Don't let security touch it. (Some are low life thieves for the weekend event).

08's worst moment was the breeders.

07's worst moment was when i was getting searched at the gate and i had put my favorite tool shirt on a table and some guy walked off with it while i was getting searched. but then later that day someone offered to pay me 40$ for my 10$ sunglasses so it kind of made up for it.

Leaving the end of Kraftwerk to try and catch that wreck of an MIA performance. Luckily we only missed the last 15 minutes of their set and still got a great spot for Portishead, but still a total waste of time and energy. Wasn't my decision either. Also at Kraftwerk I had rolled a really nice blunt and within 60 seconds of sparking it some security staffer (not a cop) rushed me and stomped it out. Luckily he was unable to recover the rest of my stash so it really wasn't that bad.

we went into the tent, waited for them to start playing, and just tried to chillax as much as we could, it was so assfucking hot.
once the music started, we danced and moved around, of course.
but the bitch in front of me kept elbowing me in the abdomen.
at the end of "the youth"
i just couldnt take it anymore, and i could feel my breakfast creeping up my throathole.
so i abandoned my friend and walked out, and puked like ive never puked before.
then walked across the field to see cold war kids.

Coachella was awesome, so leaving was the worst part. Everything went smoothly, other than feeling slightly weak midday and falling asleep and missing MGMT (oh well). I didn't have any trouble with the food, either. The Sahara porta potties definitely take the cake, though... who craps in a urinal? Honestly.
OMG MGMT ruled!!!! Worst moment was missing The Verve

my worst moment spanned from waiting for m.i.a. to take stage to missing the very vast majority of portishead. seriously, that m.i.a. crowd was the most turmoltuous, uncomfortable physical experience of that weekend. add to it my friend whose roll was being swallowed alive, and we didn't stay put for more than 15min. seeing animal collective in a much more spacious environment was a bright spot tho. although a little frightening. after that i wanted to just lay in the grass and feel portishead all around me, but i chose to stay with my friend at the sahara tent for sasha and digweed. DID NOT WANT. oh well live and you learn ima try to be a spirit from now on @ music festivals, floating about where i please

having a huge fucking gate in the way of not only getting close to the main stage, but also making you stand either to the right of the stage or the left, and not the fucking middle..

This will unleash a storm of shit, but:
Why do people like Animal Collective so much? I mean, I was pretty into Sung Tongs for a while, but there was a point where I kind of snapped out of it like.. "this is really fucking silly." Totally subjective opinion, just saying.

Well, I joined back then but didn't really care about the board until this year. I wanted to use of every resource available this year to make my campsite badass and to have more input on bands.

Oh yeah, I also used to have a life.

I went to Coachella alone last year and forgot where I parked my car. The last night night I had to wait for the lot to be practicaly empty (around 2am) before someone could drive me around to find it. I was hauling a tent, cooler, sleeping bag, and another bag of clothes and what not. I was absolutely no where near where I thought my car was... I had a final on Monday at 10am and made it back home at 8am. It was worth the F.

I was too loaded and zoned out driving back to my hotel after a friday night. Ended up driving like two hours in the wrong direction and was lost in the desert until 4 a.m.
Sunday, drove from my hotel to the grounds, realized I couldn't find my cell phone, freaked out, drove back to my hotel (so stressed because I wanted to see Explosions in the Sky), tore my room apart, went back to my car and found it in the car the whole time, missed explosions (I did see them close with The Only Moment We Wore Alone, however, my fav song so I was kind of happy)
Didn't care to see RATM play, and wanted to leave early to beat the traffic, spent 90 minutes looking for my car, finally found it, got stuck in the crowd traffic, didn't make it back home until about 3:30 AM, had to work at 6 Monday morning.
All of that went down on the same weekend two years ago, and on that same weekend I happend to get in the only line where they were checking for drugs, didn't notice that until I was like 3 people away from the guy pating people down, freaking out and somehow hid 6 joints throughout my body and made it in. On a Friday I had eaten too many weed brownies, polished nearly a 5th of gin, and smoked too many bowls and freaked the fuck out during Peeping Tom.
What a god damned weekend that was, loved every minute of it.
