You are planning on seeing Eliza Doolittle and Ellie Goulding, so your Sunday certainly won't be awesome.

Goulding looked solid on Kimmel last night. As for Eliza, call it a fetish for britt pop.

If there's one thing GV has a lot of after last year, it's straight cash money. It would appear that they are putting their financial gains to good use by making sure 2011 is nowhere near as disorganized as 2010.

After last year, I have decided to approach this year with guarded optimism. I am hoping for the best, but I have my doubts. I am encouraged by the new features.

I'll add:
- more activities in the Campgrounds
- only $5 to have a VIP shower you

And one we're not talking about nearly enough:

- MINIMAL INCREASES IN PRICES

example: camping in 2008 was $55 PER PERSON for a pretty small spot. Car camping this year is $75 PER SPACE, and that's a 10 x 30 spot where you can squeeze in as many people as you can fit.

Honestly, I feel very good about this year going in.
Last year wasnt an unsalvageable disaster but it was easily my least favorite (of 7) Coachellas and the one that felt the least like Coachella. It might as well have been shitty Lollapalooza.

This time I really do see a ton of signs pointing to GV really trying to make this not only as good as it was but even better.

I am very psyched.

This year's bound to be amazing (in comparison).

It was $55 for layaway.

good point; I'm not that familiar with layaway. Camping is such a deal. And look at what they've none with the price of water since 1999. Nothing.

The fancy wristband packaging deserves to be on that list too. People were thrilled when that stuff came out. (And yes I don't expect to get any of it but it was still a positive addition. I don't get to hear all the bands I want to either.)

$5 VIP showersI still don't get this, do we get to choose the VIP we get to shower with, or is it just random selection?

And a solid lineup

The fact that the lineup is an afterthought on your list says a lot. This is the least excited I've ever been about a lineup. But Coachella is not about the lineup to me, it's about the overall experience. And all signs point to an awesome experience this year.

This. I know it's nice to get hyped up about all the great features/added measures, but IMO it's much better to just stay cautiously optimistic. If everything is as incredible as it seems, then awesome! If not, at least you didn't hype yourself up too much

I keep hearing about the VIP Showers, where do we get these passes? is it a pay per shower thing? a fancy wristband? Soap on a Rope?

Up to now I have been excited, but as of today I am in official brain bursting with Coachella giddyness mode!

Like right now I should be getting my desk cleared off and catching up on my work, but I am here instead.


Such a better use of my boss's internet!

After reading an LA Times article today I am starting to think we are in for the biggest treat. I think it will visually top everything else before. The pyramid will now symbolize old coachella.

I think it will be like no festival experience before it.



Or fail hugely due to the hype in my head being too grand.

So I just finished work, and I have one more day there (Tuesday) until I leave. Talk about phoning it in. I kind of get the feeling that all my co-workers are mildly pissed at me, but I'm too busy being giddy to even care.

Reading this makes me feel good! Last year seemed so fucked up! I hate to say anything negative about something so amazing (09 was my first year, and I feel so privelaged and lucky that this will be my third year!), and I can hardly even remember now, but I had a few complaints last year that I hadn't had in 09. This year feels like it'll be the best yet. I feel like I'm opening up a present every time I see a new picture, or read about some change, and the anticipation of the set times (yes... part of why I'm still up. No.... not the entire reason!). It may just be me, personally, but there feels like a lot of good energy surrounding this weekend! And... of course..... $5 VIP showers!
