you dumbfucks.
the OP meant in reference to what special activities might occur on thursday night.

i.e. a movie or DJs, as in previous years

Speed Quarters World Championship Round Robin (Parking Lot Desert Stage)

representatives from around the globe will duke it out in the most massive round robin speed quarters championship ever conceived, with over 20,000 quarters being hurtled across the rooves of 4, 000 cars and into the gaping mouths of 15,000 plastic beer cups! For the winner, glory. For the loser, shame.

10 am thursday?

yeah.
whats wrong with that?

i showed last year on Thursday around 5pm-it took too long to set up everything w/o a wagon-and it was hard enough not being distracted by the party vibe.

Its gotten to the point where nothing else can block out the excitement. Ive got my three day pass, my camping pass, and its almost time to start putting my camping ish together.

Ive still got my fingers crossed for a Jack White or a Beck acoustic set thursday night.

Any news on the rumor to the dome being open all night saturday? I know its back and sat.'s got the killer dj lineup, but Id be so amped if they kept it open till 4 just for the campers.

*edit* ill be there @ 9:30

got there at 1 in the morning last year and it was a bitch to set everything up in the dark. Plus i want to spend as much time as i possibly can there..... The fuzz is going to have to kick my ass out come monday morning.....oh shit i forgot that monday is 420....hahahahaha YEAH!!!!!!! Campground for the win!

Have you ever been to a Lebowski Fest? i went to my first a few month ago. It was hysterical.. The ENTIRE movie was recited. I must have had 8 White Russians that night.
Not to mention the amazing metal tribute to the Bee Gees band that played before hand:

In 07' they played The Song Remains The Same by Zepplin on a big inflatable screen. It was appropriate due to the Rage takeover that year.

Last year there was a laser show and electronic music.

07 was Rage related
08 was lasers thus Floyd related.
Maybe this year they will have This Charming Band play

Oh ya! Getting there early Thursday, only to crack open and drink back a few beers, set-up camp and be relaxing by sunset. It's the best way to meet new friends! If I see anyone that needs a hand...rest assured i'll be there to help! haha

I just bought a new canopy, can't wait to use it this year. Oh yaaa!

There were two separate days; one at Irving Plaza for the movie screening (i think about a 600 capacity venue) and then the next day a bowling alley was rented out, but if you bought tickets to the bowling alley, there was no guarantee that you would actually bowl.

They'll be having one in L.A. in July http://lebowskifest.com/

alright I got two questions i will consolidate in one post....

first, about Lewbowski fest. I'm planing on going this year, my first time. I was thinking about just going the bowling day. The movie screening comes to 30 bucks which seems an awful lot, though it would be fun. What day would you say is worth going to more?

and about camping....in years past I've gotten to coachella thursday afternoon around 2-3ish. i was hoping for that this year, but it looks like a friend needs some longer time due to school, so won't be making it to the campgrounds till around 5ish. is this a really bad time to get there? is the check in line going to be crazy long and we are going to have to set up in the dark?

Our tent was right by that screen.

I've heard that's about when the lines get a little crazy.

you should still be in in about 30 mins or so around 5pm......7-8 I think it will turn into a hour ish

I haven't even been to a Coachella before but knowing how big it is, getting there early is smart.

So if Rage influenced the camp ground special in 07', and Waters for 08' then what would be some good guesstimations for this week(it's crazy thinking it's later this week...).

You didn't set up shit last year, except for some drinks. Your tent never left the box.

Thanks for the info! It looks like it would be fun just looking at all the people dressed in costumes. One of my friends would get a big kick out of it, he loves that movie.
