So where did you spend the most time at Coachella this year?
04-28-2009, 02:33 PM
Sahara tent 4eva!!! Although I frequented the Do Lab, beer garden, and other tents more often than last year.
04-28-2009, 02:35 PM
<3 it all
04-28-2009, 03:39 PM
Wow I only saw 2 acts at the outdoor theater this year. But I saw 9 in the Gobi.
04-28-2009, 03:52 PM
Mojave. By far.
04-28-2009, 03:54 PM
Mine changed from day to day, though all told it was probably the Coachella Stage. That was where I spent at least half of Friday, and bits and pieces of the other two days. But I hit everywhere else quite frequently, except the Sahara, where I didn't go too terribly often except for check in and see how people were enjoying it.

Coachella stage. The 2.5 hour McCartney set, plus the 50 minutes of downtime between him and Morrissey kind of make it no contest.
04-28-2009, 04:06 PM
Wow, it surprised me when I looked into it and found that I spent more time at the main stage than any other. I think Friday and Sunday I was running around a lot. 2nd and 3rd up for my time was Sahara and Gobi. Only saw 2 acts at the outdoor and 1 in the Mojave.

The vast majority of my time was spent between the Mohave and the Outdoor. The former I think got a little more time spent.
04-28-2009, 04:25 PM
Ohhh breakdown time!
Mainstage: 3 acts
Outdoor: 7 acts
Gobi: 4 acts
Mojave: 7 acts
Sahara: 4 acts
Plus or minus a few.

Mostly the sahara but lots of day light hours at the do lab. The do lab was fun and refreshing.
04-28-2009, 04:48 PM
Do-Lab: Yes/missed Lucent Dossier though...
Dome: Late Nite
Oh how I wish I got inside sooner all 3 days, should have seen atleast 9 more bands/djs than I did (5 of which would have been in the Mohave). The quality experiences I had more than made up for it though.

I think this was my first year I didn't spend the majority of my time in the Sahara. Sahara line-up blew.
04-28-2009, 07:09 PM
Sahara with 9....Mainstage with 8...... much improved from 2008, when I saw 15 acts in the Sahara.
04-28-2009, 08:03 PM
By Sunday night I pretty much had my mainstage spot reserved
04-28-2009, 08:12 PM
I usually spend a good chunk of my time in the Mojave every year.
Guess what. The Mojave wins again this year but only by one.
04-28-2009, 09:04 PM
i wish i could have split myself in 2 , cuz i didnt get to see or party with any of the people in the sahara . i camped out at the main stage most of the weekend . next year im spending one whole day in there , well....at least until the main stage headliner .

Spent the most time in the Sahara, but the best tent for me was the Gobi.. Devendra, People Under the Stairs, Gang Gang Dance.
Coachella Stage: 5
Outdoor Theatre: 2
04-29-2009, 03:23 PM
this year was the MOST time i've ever spent at the main stage :2c
04-29-2009, 04:15 PM
Black Keys, Franz, Morrissey, Paul McCartney, The Killers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, My Bloody Valentine, Some of the Cure...so yeah the main for sure...
05-01-2009, 07:59 AM
Definitely was like the Den Mother in the Sahara this year. In between sets we'd wander over to the Do Lab, and then back to the Sahara.
05-01-2009, 10:18 AM
I spent much of my time in the VIP section by The Sahara. I caught most of my acts in the tents. I spent very little time by the stages.
05-01-2009, 12:00 PM
The main stage for sure especially Sunday. Starting with Okkervile and ending with The Cure.. shit after that sun exposure im almost as dark as Dr. lufs-alot!!
05-01-2009, 12:21 PM
i think im split between the sahara and the main stage
05-01-2009, 03:18 PM
Wow, I didn't realize this but it's easily Coachella Stage for me. I spent barely any time during the early parts of days at the main, but when you add up the time for the later acts I easily spent more time there than any other. Most of the daytime it felt like I was alternating between Gobi and Mojave, with bouts at the Outdoor and Sahara.
05-03-2009, 08:12 AM
Main Stage - 9
Outdoor Theatre - 6
Gobi - 4
Mojave - 6
Sahara - 2
05-03-2009, 03:05 PM
I`m so glad i didnt get stuck in the beer garden this year.
05-03-2009, 06:04 PM
sahara tent 100%
05-03-2009, 08:09 PM

05-03-2009, 08:15 PM

05-13-2009, 10:24 PM
and a lot of time in the Beer gardens.
05-14-2009, 08:27 AM
Mojave, Outdoor, Main; probably in thet order.
05-14-2009, 08:48 AM
this scale you guys are using doesnt make much sense. why not use 100% then breakdown from there. ie coachella 40%, outdoor 20%....
