Goal is to bring together all Foursquare users at Coachella and check in to the same venue (around a similar time) to create an epic swarm.

We'll also have have lots of gifts & swag! If you are interested in learning more, please follow on Twitter @4sqdayCoachella

Thanks!

hope it's early in the day on Saturday. Last year the network crapped out around 5pm on Saturday and couldn't check in for the rest of the weekend.

Fuck foursquare and the sad attention seekers that love being the mayor of their local KFC.

That may be--I mean I'm not 100% sure--but it's definitely quite possible that THAT IS THE STUPIDEST FUCKING THING I'VE EVER READ.

This thread led me to finally find out for myself what Foursquare is.

i completely agree. i don't understand why you'd want anyone to know where you are and why you'd want to be the mayor of your local liquor store.
but whateve's... power to you!

squegees (aka knuckle backs) are still legit though right?

this check in thing, really? My facebook status will be enough to tell people I'm somewhere they want to be.


Besides, the real coachella goers bring this

Foursquare certainly isn't for everyone but for those that are interested in being a part of it, make sure you sign up for the meetup:

^ Very cool. Now you can meet other people who are in the same place that you are.

Is this for fucking real? I just watched the video on their website and it asked me if I wanted to be more aware of the incredible things around me. You know how you do that? You get off your fucking cellular telephone and pay attention to what you're doing. It's called not being horrifically and obliviously detached from the moment at hand. Maybe you've heard of it.

that was my thought too and I was like "OH SHIT I'd totally be down for a game of foursquare at coachella"

now I'm just disappointed and angry, and considering bringing a cherry ball and some chalk

Foursquare is just another "ooh look at me, I'm somewhere cool and you aren't!" kinda thing. That's what I use it for anyway. It's built into FB as it is.

My fucking friends play 4Square all the time and all they are doing is looking at their phone and commenting on the fact that we are surrounded by OTHER STRANGERS ALSO IN THE SAME PLACE AS US LOOKING AT THEIR PHONE REALIZING THAT THEY ARE SURROUNDED BY OTHER STRANGERS IN THE SAME PLACE AS THEM LOOKING AT THEIR PHONE.

Please do your epic swarm before the stages open.

I feel compeled to defend foursquare and its ability to allow me to avoid those who use it!

I'm on vacation in Hawaii and foursquare has gotten me free appetizers, free drinks, and a discount at my hotel pool bar just for checking in. I've also glanced through the tips at various places to get ideas for restaurants and tours. Back home in Seattle, I score free beers, apps and coffee at several locations. Totally worth it. The usefulness of foursquare depends on your locale. Of course, none of that applies at a music fest where I won't get anything free or need tips, so I'll check in for the meetup and probably not again. Looking forward to some fun on 4/16.

I love Foursquare. Have gotten free appetizers and drinks before with it, too. Plus I'm a nerd and like collecting the badges. :) In fact I want to try to unlock the Player Please badge during Coachella, so if anyone wants to be 4sq friends with me so that that can happen (have to check in with three friends of the opposite sex) ... http://foursquare.com/outrunsorrow

Is there going to be a 4sq Day badge this year?

Isn't that.... the entirety of Coachella?

But this thread makes me want to start a real four-square game.
