Can someone give me the typical run down of the day? Like when you get there, what you do, then what its like at night, and how late the parties go after the bands end at night?

everyone's experiences will be different... i will throw my 2 cents in assuming you are doing the onsite camping thing.

7 a.m.: awaken because it's too damn hot in your tent. spend the next 30 minutes to an hour griping to your friends that it's too hot and/or try to fall back asleep, to no avail.

between 8-11am'ish: shower/brush teeth whatever, eat breakfast, get dressed, wander around, meet new people, be amazed at how many people came from canada, grab things from your car you forgot to get the night before, etc.

11 am: pow-wow with your group of friends to hash out meet-up points, who's going to see what, talk to your neighbors about who they're going to see, they will probably want to borrow the printout of the set times you remembered to bring but they did not

Noon'ish: go inside! wander around! get your alcohol wristband. bang some drums. take pictures. look at art. ooh and aah at the tesla coil. ride the sketchy 'rides' and sketchy bikes. etc.

after 1 p.m.: music starts.

eat/drink lunch/meals at some point... whenever you so desire. take a quick nap in one of the shaded tents if you have some sort of gap where you don't care too much about any of the artists performing.

before 9: get souvenirs, b/c the lines will be too long after this point.

Sometime after 11 p.m.: music ends. spend the next half-hour trying to get out of the venue.

midnight on: drink/party if you're not too exhausted... this is usually the point where i consume many cough drops b/c my throat is so hoarse from yelling along to the music (and breathing in other people's smoke) all day.

after 2'ish: try to get a good couple hours rest.

well my plan is simple:

get to the polo field by 11am each morning. chill out..

once in get my alcohol writsband, check out some stuff, chill out

through the day, drink, dance, rock out, drink some more, chill out

nighttime, start to enjoy the nightlife and more of the same

when its over leave and do it all over again. keep it basic but i do reccommend downloading pf pic of the site and start to map out little things so u dont stress over them later, like the wristband, restrooms. and get some food in ur belly and lots of fluids other then that have fun!!

Can you not buy like a ''guide'' over there ?
Like a map of the festival with all the important places on it.
And set times too maybe ?

Sucks if you can't..

They hand out little brochures with a map and set times as you walk in the gate. They're free too, grab two.

Your ideal day at the festival will probably look as follows:

Music.
Frozen Lemonade.
More Music.
More Frozen Lemonade.

Repeat for ~ 12 hours.

how exciting!!!

so you have to get a wristband to get alcohol?? *mental note taken* is it going to be really hot?

what are the crowds generally like? over here there always seems to be a bunch of people throwing full bottles of...water (i hope i really hope) around which can be really painful if you get hit by them.

is there a programme with times of bands out yet?

sorry about my incessant questioning!

Yes...it will be hot, but not humid. It'll probably be like 20 degrees cooler in the shade.

People aren't too rowdy. The craziest people get is probably in the Sahara Tent and during any heavier bands. I'm expecting a pit for Rage and a little bit of craziness for Bjork.

Not yet, comes out the week of the festival



sorry about my incessant questioning!


It's okay...just don't let it happen again

i love getting in the pit, but honestly some crowds here can be vicious!

Not that hard if you have the ability to age 2 years in the next 11 days.

Or have a 21+ year old friend go get a wrist band, come back and give you their wrist band, go back to a different tent and get another one for themselves.

I really need to start eating more food at Coachella...Seems I have missed out on some quality stuff over the years. I generally survive off of hot dogs and churros....

Do they serve Thai? That would be amazing.

or just grab one off the ground. that's what I did at Intonation and nobody even looked twice.

I'm going to go ahead and guarantee that there will be alcohol bracelets on the ground, but no water bottles

Makes sense to me, when I'm drunk I'll eat everything in sight.

Haha, all I keep thinking about is how this new diet i'm on is comletely fucked because there's no way my drunken munchies will allow me to bypass anything chicken-related. Or potato chips. Or nachos. Or whatever shish kabob, onion-on-a-stick crap thing deep-fried in pig lard happens to look appealing when i'm intoxicated. LOL.



maybe snuggles later

teh ecstehsy? haha.

LOL...you're right and depending on which you have first, I doubt that pig-lard would even be a factor in the equation. Snort. I'm a simple gal, PIZZA AND BEERRRR!!! Haha.

Yeah, no sense in having to take away the little pleasures of vacation while you're down there. Might as well enjoy every aspect. :)
