This will be my first year going, but for those who got the 3 day pass by the third day are you just over it?

No... just no... you'll see so many high quality performances the 1st 2 days, it'll leave you yearning for more. That and there's so many good acts out there these days, that it would be tough to cram them into 2 days... After the fest is over Sun night, you'll wonder how did the weekend go so fast, and still want more...

this thread is fucking retarded.

no three days isnt TOO much. get in shape and dont overdo the party favors. one thing that can get annoying is the morning heat. a bit much to sleep in a tent during that...but there's no way it should effect the overall experience

Fuck no 3 days isn't too much. Technically for me it starts on Thursday since I like to get there early to set up and start partying. Coachella is a 4 day thing for me, and I always wish it would never end. You'll be exhausted by the end, but its too much fun to get sick of it. Just give your feet a break when you need to or if you have down time. Someone told me you walk an average of 10 miles a day at Coachella. You'll be on your feet a lot, so just eat right, don't party too hard, and conserve your energy when you can and you'll be able to make it.

If you have to ask, then Coachella is NOT for you. Tell you what......just stay home and give me your ticket. I'll make sure it goes to someone who realy deserves to be at Coachella. Fuckin idiot.

I'm usually beat by Sunday, but am loving every minute of it regardless. In 07 I learned that some of the best, most refreshing sets can come from a Sunday, like Ratatat!

On Friday night you are so happy there are still 2 days left. On Sunday night you are sad it's all over. Then begins the year long wait. Never too much Coachella.

I think about Coachella for the entire year after I leave...it bleeds into your soul. 3 days isn't enough, and its the start of festival season, so its more like a warm-up anyway!

3 days is, in a word, perfect. I too have had those sinking feelings come Sunday but I have also used up all my energy at that point. If it were to be an extra day I would be dragging for sure.

In short: No, it's fine.

3 days is perfect. If you are doing it right you will be wiped the fuck out on monday, your legs hurt, you're a little bit sunburnt, and trying to process everything that just happened over the weekend, grateful for the experience but ready to go home

Considering I spend the other 362 days here in Coachella waiting for those 3 magical days, they could shorten the wait by adding more days if they wanted.

After a long pain in the ass year (every year) Coachella is my light at the end of the tunnel. It's a perfect vacation that delivers pretty much everything I could want (friends, music, drugs, sights, hilarity, debauchery of all kinds), and when it ends it almost feels like it was a dream. You will want more, and that's why people come back year after year, after year.

this thread makes laugh in that people just can't fucken wait and most believe it's too much.

friday - you're super amped and by the end of the day (if you watch 15+ bands for 30 minutes a piece) you've walked a good amount. then, it's the 45 minute trek to your car. fortunately, we have a house available to us for the weekend, so we can sleep in an actual bed and shower.

saturday - you realize you have to pace yourself, but you just can't help it.

sunday - people are high on energy, but their body is pretty tired. you can see it. it makes since that gorillaz is the festival closer, cos people can just enjoy the show.

what my husband and i do is we start taking walks from january so that we don't hit a theoretical brick wall of fitness. if you're in shape, you should be good to go. also, eat well and respect your body and its capabilities. personally, i'm concerned because my husband just got diagnosed with a back condition, so this is a crazy messed-up monkey wrench in our weekend.

i'm gonna get a pedometer to see just how much i walk. i mean, it's pretty much 30 hours of walking, jumping, dancing and more - phew.

athletes who run triathlons usually get sick after from the insane limits they push their bodies to.

take care of yourself and drink plenty of water.

p.s. i'm a philosophy major, so i guess i just found it facitious that people want to live in coachella mindset 356/24/7. if this is so, then coachella would turn into the norm and you would naturally crave another coachella. chasing the dragon... but yeah, there's a slight sigh sunday night as you walk off the grounds. next one is 362 days away...

Just come on these boards the week after Coachella...everyone will be complaining of sicknesses...and just generally depressed. All because of the amazingness of the previous weekend.

In the past I have worried a little bit about being too exhausted Sunday to enjoy the show...but each year I show up, the adrenaline gets pumping, and I have no problem making it through. I think 3 days is perfect.

I think it also helps that Sundays have always been among the strongest days as far as the lineup goes (at least, as far as my tastes go). Some of my fondest memories have been from Sundays - Getting my mind blown by Explosions in the Sky in 2007, getting my mind blown by MMJ into Roger Waters (2008), My Bloody Valentine blowing my mind last year, well...you get the idea. And this year promises to be even better (best Sunday yet?).

Nah man, I'm talking about 22saugus22.... who the fuck would say that 3 days at Coachella is "too much". I'm going for the first time, too and even I can tell you that everyone wishes Coachella lasted longer. Plus, I haven't read anything you said that was retarded, so nothing against you.
