I am fucking terrible at remembering names. So, if you manage to run into me on the camping grounds or the festival grounds I'll try my best to remember your name but... Yeah, I'm probably not going to remember it. Just a precaution. See ya'll at the festival!

Yeah, I was going to say something similar. My problem is I'm terrible at recognizing people out of context (present frotastic company excluded). So if you see me & recognize me, please say hi. I may even remember your name.

Who gives a fuck about names at Coachella? Sometimes I can barely keep the band names straight lol

Question: Does going to music festivals and partaking in the activities associated with have effects on the memory, particularly when it comes to names? You and I are evidence of a correlation perhaps. try repeition, it is the only method I find works.

Maybe there should be a Coachella Board name tags someday. Or just everyone on this board buy a generic "my name is..." sticker and wear it.

If someone gets offended because you don't "know" them when they approach you, that's kinda douchey.

It's just that I had this experience last year where on Friday, upon entering the grounds, I ran into 8 boardies in a row and promptly forgot a lot of their names (and some more over the rest of the weekend). Also, usually people list who they ran into and I was just preempting the fact that I'm going to forget about some people. Oh well.

Learning/remembering multiple names in a row is tough. if anyone gives you grief about this at coachella well they are obviously on a different level. just give them a hug and tell them at least you remember what they feel like.
