If there is one, let's hear it.

For me it was probably passing out during JJ, seeing as I've never fainted before so it was rather scary and I didn't know what was going on.

Also anyone who had to go "boom boom" knows that they had at least one bad experience a day.

Cocksucking cop in the parking lot on Fri telling me there was 'no problem' in the lot and that I should follow the lights.

Assholes, every one of them.

Agreed. That was ridiculous.
I ended up just crawling in the bed of my friend's truck and falling asleep.

My friend getting the car stuck in the parking lot Sunday morning.

I was like "dude, i think we're gonna bottom out". I don't know if he didn't hear me, or if he was too baked to understand and process what I said but he managed to perfectly balance the car on it's frame hangin off the edge of the parking area.
We were REALLLY hung over from the previous night and were in dire need of some IHOP. We all got out and tried to push the car off of the ledge we were stuck on, wouldn't budge. Some, drove past slowly to admire the new parking lot "decoration" but others stopped by to help, THANK YOU! But still, we were stuck. So we sat in the car with the AC on full blast, smiling and waving at onlookers until a tractor came and pulled us off the ledge with a chain, YAY!

Using the portapotties on Saturday night.

how about saturday at noon? i was shocked that the ones near the sahara had clearly not yet been cleaned from the day before. in years past i've always thought GV did the best job they could with the portapotties, but to face that mess of human waste, no toilet paper and no purell first thing after the gates opened was horrifying! please, GV, get it back together for 2009.

Grabbing three tickets for friday from our RV...only to show up to the venue to find we grabbed friday, sat, and sunday tickets. :/

we bought 2 scalped fridays, and our buddies drove in from OC to meet up with us that night (good for them!) since getting back to our RV at the campground would have cost at least 1.5 hours in show time.

Other than that, awesome.

One hour, a really nice Indio police officer and a jump later, I was finally on the way home.

Ouch at least Saturday was worth it.


Worst for me was probably trying to find my car in the dark after Friday and not remembering where it was and being unfamiliar with the area. Then waiting to get out of the parking lot and dealing with all the dust flying around

Nearly being left behind on Monday... Stupid sleeping in.

Watching Swervedriver. I can see how people enjoyed them (and kroqken DID enjoy them), but fuck I missed Gogol AGAIN... Christ.

Leaving Goldfrapp early... Apparently they clicked in right after Ooh La La, but I did get to see Utopia and Ooh La La.

Thinking Annuals would be worth seeing.

-not being able to find our car on Friday and having to get a ride from the golf cart guy with the cute accent and cowboy hat.(cute accent guy was sweet).
-having to go pottie on Saturday and choosing to go to the port a potties by the Sahara where,after getting in line,I noticed some people doing a complete about face when they viewed what the potties looked like inside.
I had to pee pee so i stayed and I saw large amts of fecal matter.but what really did me in was the cup of urine and the pregnancy dip stick I saw in the little urinal. I lost whatever I had eaten that day.didn't make it into potty hole but right onto seat where i had put down all 5 of my trial size toilet seat covers. ended up squatting to avoid my own vomit. After that I only used the bathrooms by the lockers.

The Black Kids set on Friday... I only made it through 3 songs of that torture before finding Les Savy Fav and redeeming that hour on Fri.

Experiencing "splash back" from doing a #2 early Sat in the porta potties by the ourdoor theater. That was early in the day too, when they were halfway empty and useable... worst nightmarish feeling EVER!

Sunday night after the Justice... knowing I probably wouldn't go to sleep, and have everything all packed and ready by 4:30 A.M. to get back to LAX for my 9:30 flight (wanted tons of extra time to deal with the L.A. traffic and rental car return). And the fact that it's another 365 days until next year...

The crazy early-evening midtier conflicts on Friday... dan le sac vs. Scroobius Pip / Goldfrapp / The National / Raconteurs, then Raconteurs / Swell Season / Aphex Twin / Aesop Rock / Santogold, then The Verve / Pendulum / Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings.

I chose dan le sac vs. Scroobius Pip > The National > The Raconteurs > The Swell Season > The Verve, but even though they were all great shows, I knew I was missing an equal number of similarly excellent shows elsewhere. It hurt a lot.

Haha...that same thing happened to me a couple times, i even busted in a girl using the toliet once. Too bad she wasn't cute.

For me, the worst thing was the marathon-like trek back to Lot 5 on Sunday night.

I bit down on it from a falafel which I purchased on Friday afternoon from one of the food booths. It cracked half of my molar off.

The good news was that there was no pain; i.e. it hadn't cracked down to the nerve. It was really shitty that it happened on the first day of Coachella and I also had a 7 day roadtrip after the festival before getting back home to a dentist.

Fuck the falafel booth.

I got sick and almost fainted during Prince because there was so many people. We were way towards the front of the stage and it took so long to get out of the crowd. My brother nearly had to carry me out.

And Sunday morning me and my brother had a huge fight and I ended up taking a bus home that took 7 hours and was really scary.

I also learned that you have to eat really slow when you are trying to eat with one side of your mouth. And when enough alcohol is in your system, that's almost impossible.

I went alone. I met a few people at various stages who were incredibly nice, and I narrowly missed hooking up with some old friends. But I really wanted to be able to turn and say, "Amazing!" to a good friend after a spectacular set, or , "What the fuck was that?" after that guy who served me the veggies and brown rice was higher than anyone else at the festival.

It was my first Coachella, and such an incredible experience. I wanted to share it with someone, and I could only do it via cell phone and e-mails.

starting off Sunday with 4 beers... walking over a mile to the venue, only to find out we'd forgotten tickets. Walking all the way back to the campsite, walking all the way back to venue again...

stood for about 6 hours about 20 feet from the main-stage to see Roger Waters, only to start getting heat stroke or dehydration, or whatever the hell it was RIGHT BEFORE THE GUY GOT UP ON STAGE. Felt bad about it too... I must have trampled a few people trying to get out. I'm a pretty big dude.

Sorry if you got stepped on. Or possibly kicked in the head when I was trying to hop over the little fence-thingy they had set up...

But never said anything about people being inconsiderate or not behaving well. People around me were really nice and the guy behind me held me up a bit when I started to feel sick. I was so sad that I didn't get to see the whole set of Prince.

hearing these food stories scare me. I got lucky and had no problems with the food this year or any year i've started going in since 06. I mostly stuck to the delicious and fresh artichoke chicken wraps and Spicy Pie.

On Sunday night, the Indian food place was giving away curry for $2 bucks. I have no idea why last batch curry at 1 in the morning sounded like a good idea but it was grubbing. As I was eating it, I sorta knew it was going to fuck me over Monday morning, but what can I say. Luckily, I had no problems

it was a "burger" wrapped in a tortilla and it was supposed to contain some kind of mexican style sauce, cheese, rice etc...you know the burrito part, (thats what i thought i was going to get).

instead it was a tortilla stuffed with chunks of unseasoned ground beef and huge chunks of potatos with some lettuce (i think). it was a total piece of shit, no sauce whatsoever, dry and tasteless. waste of like 7 bucks.

I would have to say that the worst this year was definitely the food. The only thing I ate that was alright was the Hawaiian bowl and rice.
Last year I had a wrap that was soo good I ate it every day. This year the same wrap was garbage. Frozen lemonades were always good though.

My worst moment was realizing that I'd lost my wallet which contained two paychecks that I was supposed to deposite. I was broke, so I overdrafted my bank account and hoped for the best. Luckily I had John with me to buy a beer here and there....and I'm sooo not a mooch. I also had my ID and debit card in my pocket, so I guess I lucked out a little.

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.

I've successfully avoided having to crap the last 2 Coachellas. Behind the port-a-potties near the Sahara were a couple of trailer bathrooms which were actually fairly nice, especially since I just used the urinal. I never really had to wait in them and while the floor had a mystery liquid come Sunday, they weren't really gross at all. You people need to learn to avoid port-a-potties at all costs. My solution: eat once during the day and leave your second meal for very late at night so that if the urge to shit hits you, you can probably hold it off for the couple hours till you get back to the hotel.

Playing "shoulders" (a drinking game) saturday at about noon. I was planning to get in the venue at about 2 with enough time to spare to catch MGMT and anybody before them. i ended up getting really hammered (im talking hammered, like you can punch me in the face and i wont feel it. thats how drunk) and time flew by. I missed MGMT which i guess i missed out, but made it in time to see Cafe Tacvba. Me and my friend were drunk and we started moshing. Soon there was a mosh pit going on. It was really hot (not that it really bothered me or anything cuz of the alcohol) and i was so drunk i couldnt feel that i was getting dehydraded. After jumping around and going crazy for a while, I noticed something was not right when i started seing stars i felt like passing out and throwing up which is not a very good feeling. i took it more easy and one of the security guys was nice enough to give me half of his water. i got all the way to the front row to see Death Cab after Tacvba. I saw the whole Death Cab show but i only remember 2 of there songs. That show went by so quick!! after theyre show i started feeling like i wanted to pass out again because of the heat. I was so lucky that one of the crew guys was throwing bottled water into the crowd and i was lucky enough to catch one. i was so close to leaving the front row and to get water but didnt want to give up that spot and miss Portishead and Prince. That water bottle ended up saving my saturday. After enjoying amazing performances by Kraftwerk, Portishead and Prince, i started feeling so weak and my legs were even giving out on me and i had that weird chill down my spine and i was light headed like a bitch. I barely made it one of the stands and bought two gatorades and downed them both. 5-10 minutes later i felt great.

Lessons ive learned for next year

- yeah go ahead and get drunk but not too drunk in the day cuz it will catch up to you. I think i might have been close to being in bad condition.

-Never mosh being stupid drunk in coachella heat.

-If so, take a few gatorades with you so you wont lose a good spot to get water.

-Dehydration is a creeper when your drunk. Before you know it your already about to pass out. (And trust me. I can hold my shit.)

Funny side note: I stayed at the Plaza Esmeralda, and it happened to be where almost all the artists were staying. My aussie friend was busting on JJ at breakfast in the hotel, and these girls were giving him the "STFU he's right there" look. Lol... sorry Jack. Truth hurts i guess.

I didn't read any of this thread except the first post, but the worst moment for me of 08 was in the middle of Sunday, just sitting around and waiting for something cool to happen. I hope I don't have a huge chunk of time out like that. Also, close runner up would be on Saturday, after leaving the festival, we wanted to go eat somewhere and we pulled into a place that looked like a family-style pizza and burger place. Upon pulling into the parking lot and seeing all the signs in Spanish as well as about 10 security guards in this tiny parking lot and hearing Mariachi music blasting from the building as well as from multiple cars in the parking lot, we decided we had been tricked into pulling into hell. It was very disappointing and we promptly left (and we were still very hungry).

I stupidly got sunscreen in my right eye in the campsite before Friday. Stumbled around with one eye until about 1 o clock when I went to first aid to rinse it. Cleared up around 2 or 3 but it made me extremely exhausted.

Gotta nap in a couple of tents which was kinda lame because I missed a few shows that I wanted to stop by for.

Then, like a fucking idiot, reapplied sunscreen. Dripped from my forehead into my eyes once again. I tried to get it rinsed again but it didn't do shit. Felt like I was completely blind, my only open eye was having trouble seeing without a blur. Everyone though I was having bad acid trip. My nose was dripping (the eye cleaner makes your nose drip like crazy) and I had to piss every three minutes because I was slamming down water hoping it'd help.

THEN I lost my friends and stumbled around like an idiot looking for them. My phone died so I went to a tent to charge it. For some odd reason the charge didn't work and my phone was still dead. Note: This entire time I am missing Goldfrapp and I still fucking hate myself for it. Magically found my friends somehow without using my phone. My eyes cleared up while I caught a small piece of The Verve. Saw Aphex Twin, Pendulum, and finished the night off with FBS and met people in the camp ground afterward.

Despite all that, I still had the best time of my entire life and now live in constant excitement for the next Coachella and the one after that.

I also dearly regret missing saturday and sunday because I would not have had a ride :/.

LoL ... you pulled into a place that looked like a castle right? That place is a burger joint (Burgers & Beer) & a pizza joint (Rockafire Pizza) & also a mexican restaurant which is on the 2nd floor of the lil castle. At night on weekend it turns into a mexican nightclub I dont go there because I'm not into Mexican Corrido music but I know for a fact there are always fights at that club.

2) Missing Purple Rain because the friends I went with were not Prince fans.

3) The Roger Waters/Murs and Simian Mobile Disco conflict. I went with Waters but was disappointed I missed Murs and SMD, who were both top five of artists I wanted to see at Coachella.

camping security was so lame.....

can't the campers just have fun


felt like we all had a babysitter in the place


How silly. Security was awesome if you ask me. Simply awesome. Getting into the camping area they are obviously hired to "minimize" alcohol being brought in and drugs but if they catch you with it they don't kick you out or anything. In fact the security guy found a whole gallon of vodka in someones sleeping bag. The security guy asked the camper if he wanted to go put it back in his car. he could have just thrown it away. Our camping group was pretty much right at the edge and closest to all the cops on golf carts. We were kinda loud all weekend long and would be up chatting and hanging out and having a blast even past lights out and not once did we get harrassed. A couple of our campers even took pictures with security and jumped on the back of their golf cart mooning people. I don't know many security teams that allow that type of shennagins.

o ya I was gonna say, I dont no how I missed all of that. as crazy as this sounds I have never smoked at coachella or on 420, the two times i would be expected to.

next year will afford me the opportunity to fix both of those for you!

worst moment of coachella 2008?

when it ended...worst moment ever.

I hear you, man. But at the same time, it's kind of a cool feeling exiting the Polo Fields, hearing everybody scream "Coachella" and just taking a moment to take in the experience.

For me, the night after Coachella is always beer around the pool night playing cards until 4am and then spending all of Monday relaxing and joking around. It's an okay feeling for.

Can't...wait...for...April...

There was nothing bad for me. Even when I felt a little sick and almost threw up, I was so happy just because I was at Coachella it didn't even matter. I honestly can't think of anything bad. And for anybody who used the portapotties, I'm shocked that you guys didn't know about the ridiculously nice (for an outdoor festival) bathroom trailers with much shorter lines, air-conditioning, and real flushing toilets. I didn't have VIP, they were always right near where the portapotties were. Get on it for next year.


Barely being able to breath during MIA and almost getting in a fight with a bunch of fucking hipsters who thought it was kool to punch their way to the front of the stage. IF MIA IS EVER AT COACHELLA AGAIN DON'T PUT HER IN A TENT!

I am 100% certain that there were more people at her set than Jack Johnson's. She should've headlined Friday. :D

I would probably not do so many xanex next year. although it did give me the impetus to sleep through Aphex Twins horrible boring set.

Gunna switch over to light narcotics so as not to cause too much nausea. Same as last year I will procure only the highest possible grade marijuana, midgrades and sub quality chronic just can't cut through the intense sensory input of Coachella.

One last gripe that goes for 07 and 08 there never seems to be any merch for the acts that I go to Coachella for i.e. Cut Copy, Justice, Mehdi, any of the Institubes, Boys Noize etc.

I had a fucking blast everyday....

but on Thursday night my friends and I went to the Filter Magazine party. We all got shitfaced and got separated in the madhouse that was the party ending. I felt my ride left me intentionally and had to pay a dude 20 bucks to give me a ride and then still walk like 2 miles to the campsite. So when i got back and saw my buddy I started yelling...we apparently got into a fist fight and he likes the UFC...I woke up a few minutes later and my other friends were like "dude cameron choked you out..." Needless to say i was pissed...This occurred in the rear right of the Campsite at like 3 a.m. and if our fight woke you...I humbly apologize.

My worst Coachella '08 moment was wasting most of Friday puking everywhere. This was made every better when in the med. tent a fellow patient asked why I was there and then disclosed that he was on acid. Now, not only am I lame for being hungover but also because I was ONLY hungover.

It was also pretty bad when those toilet busses stopped flushing and people kept pooping.

I had this same problem however I just kinda...bounced during Waters, ran over to Murs heard sum of my fav songs (he did come out with sum punk band I didnt like at first but I got into it...even more so when he brought Living Legends out by suprise) when that was over, hey, Roger was still going =) did leave early for good spot for Justice...

I went Sunday 08 as my first experience.

Got there about 3 in the afternoon, met up with my friends a couple hours later just in time for Booka Shade wihich I really wanted to see. Wasn't the greatest live set I've ever seen.
Anyway, ate the shrooms in anticipation of My Morning Jacket. As I was coming up I heard the distance that they'd started, but not being familiar with the grounds, I felt like I just couldn't leave my friends. I hadn't done shrooms in about 10 years and I forgot about the come-up. I ended up standing in pure agony from having to piss, listening to Love & Rockets, which I did not enjoy in the least. Then, as the come-up passed, I remembered...."Dude....you drove here yourself. You don't need to stay with these guys". Whew.

Man, do I get your dissapointment with the Breeders. I was really looking foward to their set and they were just so dry. It felt like a boring rehersal.

But worst moment of Coachella for me happened when I went to use a porta potty and was traumatized by all the shit and flies that were freaking EVERYWHERE. Jesus that was horrible

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.

I don't know, that sort of thing is fairly common at one point or another during a set with a lot of bands.

I actually liked the idea of them running through the crowd for the final song. There was a ton of energy in that tent and most everyone was jumping up and down but to each their own I suppose.

Worst moment of 2008 was while I was off on my own private adventure, I started to head towards spiritualized to meet up with my girlfriend I go with every year...apparently after we went our seperate ways she decided to take some E, and while I was on my way to meet up with her she sent me a msg saying "maybe next year I should go with someone who actually wants to hang out with me?" I can't stand those kind of manipulative statements and I do not respond well to them...So I sent her back "if that works best for you, enjoy"...I worked my way over to Roger Waters and was enjoying the moment while "wish you were here" was playing, I looked over my shoulder and she was standing 20 feet behind me watching me with a big giant smile on her face...I ran up to her, gave her a huge hug and told her not to do that cause she does it to everyone else and has never done it to me...and enjoyed the rest of the show...so yes it was the worst moment with a bit of healing properties...needless to say she better not pull that shit this year!!!

SECOND worst moment was On the way from lot 5 to the gate I managed to lost my ticket (some lucky bastard out there better thank me!) anyway I don't realize it till we get to the security and I am telling the girl I'll find it, she tells me to step to the side, inside, while it dawns on me to just keep digging and go. I go right through the security and didn't look back, I just tell Greg, GO! WALK! I still wonder if that girl gave a shit or she just figured I found my ticket and went through.

Worst moment of 08; after an insane thursday night of partying in the campgrounds drinking vodka and tequila and doing a little bit of nose candy i was fine all friday till about 6 or so right when the Raconteurs came on and i wanted to watch them soo bad but this huge Migraine came on and i swear it was the worst headache ever felt! I was soo fucking pissed i lasted all day just fine and them bam! i felt like shit, i couldnt stay and had to go find somewhere where guitars werent shredding my head apart, I wondered off to the Goldfrapp tent and just layed in the back on the grass and this is the part everyone will hate; I couldnt go into the Sahara with my head banging so my only option was meetin up with a friend of mine (she wanted to watch jack Johnson) and i said F*ck it and went with her and sure enough J.J. saved my Head! Not a big fan but just the right kinda music and lots of weed to mellow me out and let my headache finally go away,
*A little advice; ease up on the liquor and cocaine when in the desert, that sh*t will f*ck u up!! (even in the night, trust me that headache/hangover was the Worst!)

thats why you get a lighter and touch it to the edge of a ticket and see if it turns black. trust me on this, i have done this a ton of times buying scalped tickets, hell someone at coachella 03 sold me a faux ticket before i gave them the money i checked it and knew it was fake and yelled at them and they ran yet the people at the gate scanned it and it didnt work and still let me in, yay for a free faux ticket.

duh, except when it's not a faux ticket, but a real ticketmaster ticket that has simply been voided... i even checked the GA numbers on it... they sold me a friday ticket (that was good) and a bad sat & sun ticket...

it seems that ordering hard copy tickets by mail, and then saying the tickets never arrived, gets you new tickets sent in the mail and the barcode on the first ones are voided... and then you sell the voided tickets for saturday & sunday on friday (and then bounce outta town the day before anyone would notice)...

we were staying in palm springs, so it wasnt like i could just walk back to the campgrounds at the end of the night. and this was on saturday, so we didnt get there super early like we did on friday, so our parking lot was pretty damned far.

WORST AND BEST moment?...
Hmmm... That would have to be during the first set of Roger Waters, I think to myself "I NEED my camera for DSOTM, and its in my locker." So at set break I take of running lime I just robbed a bank. I get very abruptly stopped by four or five security personnel.
"STOP!!!"
"WHERES YOUR TICKET?!"
"WHY ARE YOU RUNNING?!"
"WHATS GOING ON?!!"

I explained that I needed to get my camera before the second set started. And so on and so on...

They let me go I got my camera got back to my spot all before the heart beat started.

did I mention that I had about 4 rolls in me at the time... crazy

Last year my ex gf was supposed to meet me on sat. So after the first day ended I went to my tent to call her about arrangements and apparently some shit went down with her mom and she couldn't borrow the car. So in order to end all the panicking I told I would pick her up (In Lakewood, ca) and she could drive us back. I ended up getting only 3 hours of sleep and made my red eyed trip to get her.

After we returned we were walking to my camp site and this tiny box which happened to contain my day 2 & 3 tickets plus cash (stupid place to keep important shit I know) opened on me and all of it fell without my knowing. I realized, panicked and turned to see the cash and grab it. But my tickets were nowhere to be found. After being completely bummed out I ended up repurchasing my tickets.

So in the end I was still able to enter the festival grounds, but the experience sort of tainted it a bit. I was also exhausted from the first night since I had to pick my gf up and was dead on sunday. I fell asleep during autolux...Oh and my camping chair and my gf's hat was stolen too. I still love coachella with all my heart though and not even likin park could discourage me from going.
