I wasn't up front for too many sets this weekend (the problems of having a huge crew and trying to meet up at a lot of sets) but what I did see up front I made count.

Kendrick Lamar (so sick, so worth it, had a blast)
The Dear Hunter (not bad, definitely better because I was close)
EMA (perfect. insanely easy to be front row)

St. Vincent (incredible, could have been even closer but liked the sound where I was at)
Bon Iver (amazing sound on mainstage, maybe the best sound of the whole festival, so full)
Radiohead (favorite set of the day even though they played nothing I wanted them to. solidified they are my favorite band in the world)

Metronomy (great vibes in the sun for the first time all weekend)
Seun Kuti (see above, danced so hard, zombie was amazing)
Real Estate (they sound SO GOOD LIVE, and had that entire tent grooving. three or four people asked me who they were outside the tent when I left, that's how awesome they sounded)
Thundercat (Got real close and danced. the band sounded amazing live. LOVED seeing my friend Austin on the keys, wasn't sure if he was playing so that was an awesome suprise. Maybe the most musically talented band to play on Sunday. Up there with Seun Kuti.)

I had Safari, which is same as Artist but with camping included. Up front on the rail for:

SHM
Porter Robinson
Dada Life
Kaskade
Alesso
Sebastian Ingrosso
Calvin Harris
Repeat-chi (oh wait, Avicii) <-- walked out 4 songs into it because they all sounded like Levels

Got to meet a lot of ppl backstage, too! SWEEEET!

Happy Coachella everyone! Wish I was going back for this weekend.

The only band I tried for up front for was Pulp, but the other just sort of happened in the mad rush between acts:

Pulp
St Vincent
Flying Lotus (actually tried moving back a bit to protect my girlfriend because the crowd was just so crazy)
Wild Beasts
Amon Tobin (was middle-ish but was pretty close after people started leaving early on realizing it wasn't a dance party).

Can we take this opportunity to talk about something?

When you arrive at a stage, please only go to the point where people are crowded in. If you can't comfortably walk in front of someone, don't. I've never been to a festival or concert with this many people shoving their way up front. If you really want to be up front, get there early. I put in my time with Pulp, getting there a couple of acts in advance. Don't try to arrive 5 minutes before they start and try to shove your way in front of me telling me, "Sorry, but I'm like their biggest fan!"

On the opposite end of the spectrum, don't get upset if you've left 4 or 5 feet of space between you and the person in front of you and someone comes and stands in front of you. You're just being selfish if you're expecting a giant radius of personal space at a concert.

This. My girlfriend had a particularly hard time grasping this concept, that if you are standing in a crowd and space opens up in front of you, you have to move forward to fill it or someone is just going to stand in front of you. Not so bad for us - I'm 6'1" and she's 5'9" or so, but still, you'd think by the third day she'd have the hang of it. :)

I was also up front only for Pulp and Arctic Monkeys (the mosh pit opened directly behind me - I was one person from the rail a little left of center). Other shows, mostly in the Mojave, I could have easily gotten to the front with a little more effort, but I was fine where I was at.

does that mean you get "side-stage" or somethin?There was a "Guest Viewing Area" in the front of the stage along the rail that we had access to, and could also go backstage and through the artist compound. It was great not having to worry about showing up to shows early.

04-18-2012, 11:16 AM
I was behind the people on the railing at Zeds Dead, which was the craziest fucking crowd I saw at Coachella. Most pits everywhere around me. Also right at the front for Modeselektor, which was sick. So much fucking bass at that show, they sounded fucking gnarly.

motionnn77
04-18-2012, 11:25 AM
Right up front, dead center for Beats Antique, Lucent Dossier. Tried to get up front but got close for Pulp. Up front for Buzzcocks. Other bands I was close and very comfortable, even though I could have made it to the front: The Horrors, Sub-Focus, The Big Pink, Band of Skulls, Gotye, Borgore.

front row...for 3 songs.

subby33
04-18-2012, 12:54 PM
Gotye.

And some early sets like Other Lives and some Saraha stuff, but that was easy cuz it was fairly not crowded early on. So those dont count.

I had a lot more fun this year not trying to stake out spots up close. However, there were a couple of bands in tents I knew would be crowded so I planned ahead. Because I hate seeing tent shows outside of the tent. So I got there early for Gotye.

04-18-2012, 01:05 PM
I was in the front row all day Friday at the Coachella stage (except for Swedish House Mafia, because I left to see the Horrors), all day Saturday at the Coachella stage and all day Sunday at the Outdoor Theatre. I am sure a fellow board member snapped a few shots of me there because they have in past years.

Only Gary Clark Jr., but close for Arctic Monkeys and Band of Skulls. Decided that as a short lady I have better sight lines if I'm a little further back and somewhere on the soundboard barrier. Much more enjoyable than getting 2nd or 3rd row deep but being mushed up against some tall person.

We left Florence during the middle of Dog Days and pushed our way through the right side of Snoop. We didn't get like front row but I mean we were pretty close up considering there was like what, 50,000 people there? Right behind VIP area.

I was on the rail in the exact center for everything on the Outdoor Stage Saturday until and including Jeff Mangum. So in addition to Jeff that included Suedehead, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Destroyer, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, tUnE-yArDs, and Andrew Bird. Totally worth it, what an amazing day that was.

You paid $5,000 for Safari camping and you went front row for all of those DJs? You might as well saved your money and bought a backstage pass to EDC

We were all up against the rail and she pretended to be sick and crying saying she needed water and we all got the security attention to lift her over the bar....we got her to the bar and he went to pick her up and she was like "Oh no i'm fine now, thanks." 5 girls next to me literally grabbed her and pushed her back. If you don't put in the time to wait don't be rude and shove your way to the front! anyways....

Le Butcherettes (top sets of both weekends).
Then Santigold Weekend 2 after having seen her tell people to jump the fence the weekend before.
Then Fitz->ATDI after accidentally sneaking into the Guests section following the Santigold onstage dancing.
Was looking forward to capturing perfect video/pictures for Dre/Snoop, but then some security guard started randomly shining his flashlight on people's bracelets, so I had to slip 3 rows back (ugh).

DJ Shadow, which was a mistake.



Wtf?

Why you say that Amy?

Not amyzzz but I thought the same thing (that is until Zack de la Rocha came out)

for me, (front row as well): the bass was RIDICULOUS. So uncomfortable! ...and the set wasn't even that great.

I WAS front row for Yuck, but then 15 seconds before they went on, I puked up my spicy pie and date shake due to heat exhaustion. And then front row for jeff mangum which was amazing.

I got front row for Modeselektor on Weekend 1! :) But since it was my first year attending Coachella, I thought there would be heavy competition for rail for Modeselektor, so I was at the Mojave at least two acts before Modeselektor took stage. So I watched Gotye (and witnessed the massive collective singalong to "Somebody I Used to Know") and then Beirut. Once Beirut finished, it felt like tons of people left and I easily got rail, to my amazement and confusion lol. Either way, it was a spectacular, unforgettable performance, and I danced my ass off. My feet were ruined at the end of the set and it was worth it.
