I was wondering what the best way is to get a great spot on the coachella stage.

kicking and punching and using elbows!


or alternatively, I find pretending you are pregnant and in distress or about to spew gets people out of the way pretty quickly. lol

To get onstage you need to be in the band. Or have a VIP pass (but then you're only really on the side of the stage). Depending on what time you want to get on the coachella stage, you will have to wait til set times come out and contact the band that has the time slot you want.

the best way is to not share your secrets for getting a good spot.

my friends tried a tactic that worked pretty good a few years ago by saying one of their friends was deaf and just needed to get a little closer to the stage to hear. The guy that was pretending to be deaf was holding popcorn and offered it to people as they passed by. It worked so well that they got all the way to the front. Also the popcorn he was offering to people was just something he found on the ground that someone else hadn't finished.

Get to the stage 1 or 2 bands earlier than the one you want to be up front for. Its the only sure-fire way of getting up front without the possibility of getting stuck far back.

I like that the organizers realized that this was a thing and uncentered the "center" barrier.

Which basically means the old trick of going left side doesn't help and also, if you get up close, means you'll be stuck off on the far left and have no access to the actual center.

Suck a band member off and get backstage access.

Well unfortunately NIN isn't here this year. When "March of the Pigs" comes on, its full permission to just mow over everyone in your way. Several NIN shows I've started in the back, and ended up in the front. Did it at Coachella somehow on my first headful of acid also. (bailey you're a pussy)

You could also show up early, weird thing people do in the states.

Wait for one act to leave at the Sahara, then run quick while whoever you want to see is setting up, then die of heat exhaustion, dehydration and too much drugs.

Like anyone would really go deeper into a cluster-fucked crowd if you were about to puke..... I wouldn't believe you and I wouldn't move.

this answer is brilliantly confusing.

This is what we usually do. Just get to whichever stage you want to see just before the last act is over. When everyone starts leaving get up front as quick as possible and just wait it out.

Why do you even need to be in the front in the Sahara? Its better to be in the back with more space so you can dance

1. Get to the venue early.
2. Show up to the appropriate stage 2 or 3 acts before the act you want to be up front for.
3. Start working your way towards the front by filling the spaces that become available in front of you. For added effectiveness, start on the non-entrance side of the stage. It's not always the left side.
4. Don't be a dick.
5. Don't get too close. If you're right up on the rail you'll have the added distraction of people constantly pushing you in the back.

this answer is brilliantly confusing.I'd say. So I won't know if I'm in one of the bands on stage until the set times are released? Shit. I hope I'm not in KoL, or Neon Trees. I don't want plastic bottles filled with bird crap launched at me.


This is what we usually do.You usually die of dehydration? Whoa.
