this is a thread for posting all the insane, random stuff you've seen at coachella over the years.

one year (it was either 2004 or 2005), i saw some kid who was in a port-a-potty that got knocked over. he had just gotten out somehow (i didn't see that part) and looked horrified and disgusted.

the cool part though was seeing all these people run up and dump their bottles of water over him. poor guy, but i think it's cool all the coachella kids were nice enough to give up their water for him without him even asking!

anyways, that's my story, YOUR TURN!

I saw some chic wearing a black bikini and knee high black boots. I couldn't figure out the logic in wearing a bikini with big ass sweaty boots. Not to mention the seriously effed up tan lines she probably got.

HEY! that was me...no, but if it was either in 05 or last year it was a girl I went with. Her name Anikc and she's just as crazy as her name.

haha, that is nuts! It was indeed last year. The funny thing is while I was typing that I was thinking "I bet that girl's on here, and she's gonna kick my ass when she sees me talking shit about her boots..." :)

I wouldn't call it crazy, I would call it stupid. All of the dumb 13itches wearing high heels and trying to walk around in a field. I was just waiting for them to fall or trip. I laughed my ass off when they did.

Waiting by the barrier at the main stage for Belle & Sebastian to come on. Really crowded and a girl near me, not wanting to lose her spot, squats down and pees into a cup! She then gives the cup to a security guy & asks him to throw the cup of "tea" for her. He did!

I saw a guy peeing on the gobe tent. I had a blowhorn thing and yelled "hey that's the gobi tent, not the go pee tent" as I shined bright lights on him from my cart. He didn't seem so amused.

So, it'd be weird to walk around in bikinis? With no boots, just sandals?

wow.
I saw that crazy robot outside of Daft Punk. And, in 04 during Beck's set, I saw a guy smoke three joints in quick succession, by himself, and then clear a circle out around him so he could lay back and listen. I'm amazed that people moved to allow it to happen.

that robot totally avoided my nephew (3 years old, and loves robots) to stare at some chicks cleavage. he was sad.

the "weird" things i've seen were just awesome. the stilt people and the people with wings in '05. i never saw anyone dressed up in costumes (like the mexican wrestler guys, or the wolf kid).

Last year I saw a guy pissing into a trashcan in the middle of the field by the mainstage before Tool came on.

Also those similarly dressed "jogger" guys. Not so much weird as slightly amusing.

Also also, there is always some kid that has to have the biggest mohawk ever. Be on the lookout for that this year.

3 things last year.

I saw the wolf and I was thinking its way too hot to wear that thing.

I was waiting for like 10 minutes for a porta potty and i was getting really pissed off. So the door finally opens and two chicks walk out. I was like...

On saturday night when everyone was waiting in line for the campsite (i had just gotten in) I hear somebody yell take down the fence. Instantly the fence goes down, but people dont come rushing in they just slowly walk in like nothing happened lol

In '04 I saw this really fucked up guy in the Sahara Tent walking around
with a small box on his head. It was shallow enough so it just barely covered his eyes. Every now and them he'd take a peek to see where he was going.

Same year, same tent. A woman, 45-ish, was wearing a peach camisole with matching peach satin shorts, pantyhose and heeled dancing shoes. She parked herself on the rail behind the sound board area and used it as a dancing partner. Bizarre.

Good times...can't wait for '07.

These muffins sat in the Gobi Tent for most of the day last year. Everytime I went to see an act, the muffins were still there. I have no idea if anyone ever ate them.

not at the festival, not really crazy, but everyone pitching in at lake cahuilla, helping change the tire on someone's car, very cool that spirit (and rewards of drink and smoke) and then waiting in line for shower as 3 gals were finishing up

That robot was awesome. I remember last year, when everyone was fascinated and talking with the robot, some jerk came up and started making fun of it. The guy said, "Hey, you like it when I do THIS, robot?" and touched what looked like a penis. All of a sudden, the robot penis shoots up and rubs against the jerk's leg. That was hilarious!

In '03, I was shrooming inside of a tent as it got dark outside, then when i came out, it was like a whole new world. I walked by that big ass electric thing that shoots out lightning bolts, and I just couldn't stop laughing...its not that it was funny, but that it was just waaay to astonishing and unbelievable.

Aaah, thats so awesome the Tesla Coil made you laugh, because you're right...its not funny AT ALL!
I think the craziest thing I ever saw was during MIA's set. I was near the entrance of the tent and all of a sudden I saw everyone duck down and heard some screaming. My initial reaction was to think that someone had a gun, so I ducked down also. Then I looked up to see a giant swarm of bees hovering near the tent (and some inside the tent). The bees up and left right away, but with all the chaos I was able to move up closer. Thanks bees!

I was there for the bees too! My boyfriend is deathly allergic, and he took off from me, screaming like a 7th grade girl.

in 04, this punk lookin chick in a bra and underwear only (and this weird hairstyle that consisted of shaved parts and long parts, randomly done so) sits down infront of my boyfriend and i. she gets up and starts doing some sort of exercise thing. My boyfriend looks at me and goes "cool, calisthenics."

I guess you had to be there.

OK, here is a part of a re-cap I wrote back from my Coachella 2004 trip. This is the absolute truth. The names have been changed. I give you The Raven Situation. Read this


...When everybody was at the car we decided just to chill there for a while, let the traffic die down, spark one up, and enjoy the moment. We were all just loving the night, the weekend, the experience, and each other. J and I were of course putting on a good show of trying to tell a story and getting nowhere fast with it, when a few yards away from us we saw a terrible sight. There was this young woman pushing a stroller towards us and from behind her this guy came up and pushed her very, very hard. He then said some stuff to her and hit her over the head. I am not sure if it was with his hand or a bottle, but I saw her face and I could tell that it hurt. Now being in the state I was and looking at these people, I first thought that maybe they were just f*cking with us. Like just making a scene to get a reaction and then laugh and ha ha ha. But we all soon realized that this was no joke. This guy hit this girl and was ready to do more if she couldn’t get away from him. So she kinda walked near us, asked us in a very quivering voice if she could join us and she sat down by J and myself. Well the guy stood back for a while and then JN went over to the girl to console the girl. I thought JN did an awesome job of asking questions and just being there for her. The girl explained that he has hit her before because she was with someone else when they were separated. Then the dude slowly walked up to us and asked if he could get a light for a smoke. She said, “Why would you want a light when you don’t even smoke?” So the guy is there, I stand up next to him and take my beer bottle and hold it like I am going to crack this d!ck if he even tries something.
Now let me try and paint a picture for you of what these two looked like. She is wearing all black fishnets, a skirt, top, and shoes. She has bruises on her arms, and short orange-like hair. I decided to call her Matilda. This guy was about 5’6, 125lbs soaking wet. He kinda looked like Jack White from The White Stripes but with zero amount of cool what so ever in him. He was wearing… go figure, black shoes, pants, and a shirt. I decided to call him Raven. Basically, they look like the people you would see at Neo. So Raven is telling Matilda that she is going with him. Well none of us were going to let that happen at all and he starts saying stuff like, “She f*cking cheated on me. Have you ever had someone cheat on you before?” Well I am now standing next to this dumb f*ck, pissed as all hell that our buzz for the entire trip has just been killed, and I burst out with a, “YEAH, YOU F*CK, BUT I NEVER F*CKING HIT HER!!!! ALL OF US HAVE BEEN CHEATED ON!!! IT DOESN’T GIVE YOU ANY F*CKING RIGHT TO HIT A GIRL” So now it seems that I was the guy that Raven was going to deal with. I am not saying that no one else was doing anything because they all were, but I remember what I did because I was freaked out by all of this. So as I am standing there talking to this guy I start to walk through everyone still sitting in the circle and while I do this I am kicking the video camera towards everyone hoping that someone would get the damn hint and start videotaping what was going down. The hint was never received. So this guy is still trying to get her to go with him and she isn’t budging.
The idea was brought up for this guy to walk away for 15 minutes and cool down. I say to the guy in a ‘get the hell out of here kind of voice’ “Dude, I will give you a cigarette if you just walk away. Now will you just leave!!!” The guy stares at me in the eye for a moment and walks away. As he is leaving I shout out, “Thanks for letting me keep my cigarette!!!” So the girl is crying, she introduces us to her baby, the baby looks up, and as if we were in some sort of movie, smiles and giggles. My heart almost jumped out of my mouth and ran away. It was so heartbreaking. Then we are talking how we need to get the cops, and she starts talking as if were right out of a textbook of ‘what battered woman say’. ‘He didn’t mean it.” “It didn’t really hurt.” I deserved it.” Well everyone is like, “F*ck no!!!” During this time, K and I walk to the back of the car to get a water and K suggest that maybe these two are gypsies and might come and rob us. Then we notice the guy walking back but around the other side of the car. I figure he is going to try and grab the stroller and run or something worse so I go and now I am standing next to the baby and across from him. So he starts saying stuff to us and I start saying stuff to him and kinda being a d!ck to him, which he deserved, and I notice his hands. I can’t see them. Right at this moment I look up and he was staring directly into my eyes. The look on his face was scary. It looked like he was going to do something that could absolutely change everyone lives. It looked like he was going to kill me. At least that was what I thought. So in a matter of about seconds I thought to myself, “this guy has a knife or a gun behind his back and is about to kill someone, and that someone is going to be me.” It could have been the enhancements, but I think everyone was thinking the same thing. So I start walking around the circle so I can see what is behind his back. When I get to K, K says, ‘S why don’t you get out of here and get the cops.” I 100% agreed. I looked behind this guys back and all I could see was something that I thought was a lighter but I wasn’t sure.
So I run down to the road out of the lot and grab a cop. He tells me to get in the car and show him where this is taking place. Now this sucked because he didn’t go the way I ran so when we got to the lot I tried explaining to these 2 cops where this was. “Over there straight ahead, no, no, go left it’s right over there by that red van.” So the cops start going to a red van but it wasn’t the one I was talking about. “Then I tell him, “behind you right over there.” I saw where I wanted to go but I could explain it to the cop because I am an idiot. So then the cops say to me, ‘You’re not f*cking with us, are you?” “No, no, look right over there by those people.” And he see’s everyone.
So the cops and I get to the site and they get the guy and put him in cuffs and sit him down by the cop car. One of the cops was with him and the other cop was with the girl and all of us. As he is talking to us he tells her what will happen to him if she presses charges and basically he is f*cked for life. So she is crying, we are all just miserable because of all of this, and that is when the paranoia started to kick in.
At this point the cop is talking to us and asking us who saw her get hit. It was JN, J, P, and my puddled a$$. So he asked to see all of ID’s. Well this whole time I felt like he was looking at me, obviously knowing that I was on something or another and I kept thinking that this guy is going to arrest me too. So when he asks for my ID, I give it to him and then he says, “Would you mind reading your Drivers License Number for me, I can’t see it so well?” So now I am like, “Sure, no problem.” At this moment I could feel everyone just looking at me hoping to God that I wouldn’t f*ck this up. I am about to have a heart attack and I grab the ID and read off the number. I am pretty sure I did a good job of it, but who the hell knows. So now, if this thing goes to trial we might be called upon to serve as witnesses and have to fly out to California for a court case.
It is now about 2 in the morning, we are all ready to get the hell out of there, and the cops decide to leave us along for a moment so we can talk about what should happen. We all were in agreement that this idiot should be locked up. B decided that he should be locked up just for the fact that he was wearing white socks with black pants. That kinda lifted everyone’s spirits. The cop came back with the girl and the decision was made that she was going with the one cop and Raven was going with the other. Fine let’s leave.

not so much as crazy as endearing...

woke up one morning at on-site camping (2003) and crawled out of my tent to find the tallest man in the world sporting a black fishnet shirt, thigh-high stacked boots and Juicy Couture short-shorts. He was so handsome, lovely and proud... We still look for "Juicy" every year we go back.

Did anyone else see him?

One year we saw a girl sporting a handmade t-shirt that read: "Where's Juicy?" She must have seen him too.

Now this sucked because he didn’t go the way I ran so when we got to the lot I tried explaining to these 2 cops where this was. “Over there straight ahead, no, no, go left it’s right over there by that red van.” So the cops start going to a red van but it wasn’t the one I was talking about. “Then I tell him, “behind you right over there.” I saw where I wanted to go but I could explain it to the cop because I am an idiot. So then the cops say to me, ‘You’re not f*cking with us, are you?” “No, no, look right over there by those people.” And he see’s everyone.
So the cops and I get to the site and they get the guy and put him in cuffs and sit him down by the cop car. One of the cops was with him and the other cop was with the girl and all of us. As he is talking to us he tells her what will happen to him if she presses charges and basically he is f*cked for life. So she is crying, we are all just miserable because of all of this, and that is when the paranoia started to kick in.
At this point the cop is talking to us and asking us who saw her get hit. It was JN, J, P, and my puddled a$$. So he asked to see all of ID’s. Well this whole time I felt like he was looking at me, obviously knowing that I was on something or another and I kept thinking that this guy is going to arrest me too. So when he asks for my ID, I give it to him and then he says, “Would you mind reading your Drivers License Number for me, I can’t see it so well?” So now I am like, “Sure, no problem.” At this moment I could feel everyone just looking at me hoping to God that I wouldn’t f*ck this up. I am about to have a heart attack and I grab the ID and read off the number. I am pretty sure I did a good job of it, but who the hell knows. So now, if this thing goes to trial we might be called upon to serve as witnesses and have to fly out to California for a court case.
It is now about 2 in the morning, we are all ready to get the hell out of there, and the cops decide to leave us along for a moment so we can talk about what should happen. We all were in agreement that this idiot should be locked up. B decided that he should be locked up just for the fact that he was wearing white socks with black pants. That kinda lifted everyone’s spirits. The cop came back with the girl and the decision was made that she was going with the one cop and Raven was going with the other. Fine let’s leave.

That's rather fucked up. Wonder what happened to them.

The "Iron Curtain" incident, where half the polo fields were roped off until past noon because Madonna was doing a dress rehearsal/soundcheck thing
http://farm1.static.flickr.com/69/167523496_43c8e63f00.jpg

And in 2004, I saw some guy I can only describe as Christmas light Jesus. He was wearing a crown of Christmas tree lights that were lit.

Saw a couple that was surely on meth in 2006 before Tool. They would get right up in each other's faces and take turns yelling "TOOOOOL!!!" at the top of their lungs. After a few minutes, I sarcastically said under my breath "Skynyrd", so the guy said "Skynyrd..yeah! Freebird! Come on Maynard, play some FREEEBIRD." At that point I moved to a spot closer to the stage but further to the side. And here some guy didn't want to give up his spot, and asked if I could help dig a hole for him so he could take a crap, and since I was so stoned, I did, then quickly left again so I didn't have to smell or see it. Not even a great spot, considering how easily I got there...maybe he was really fucked up, too.

Some girl wearing a wife beater and a black bikini bottom stuck her hand down the back of her bikini, then sniffed her hand.

Saw a juggalo in 2005.

In 2005 at camp there was this crazy guy making the rounds. Not only did he bring his mother with him, but he also said crazy shit. Maybe I'm just too shy, but I can't imagine walking up to a stranger and telling them about how my brain was fried from too much acid as a kid, my father killed himself, and I just broke my finger for punching a dumpster. And when he and his mom left us, we heard him say "maybe I'll just get lucky with you." Zoinks.

this is a thread for posting all the insane, random stuff you've seen at coachella over the years.

one year (it was either 2004 or 2005), i saw some kid who was in a port-a-potty that got knocked over. he had just gotten out somehow (i didn't see that part) and looked horrified and disgusted.

the cool part though was seeing all these people run up and dump their bottles of water over him. poor guy, but i think it's cool all the coachella kids were nice enough to give up their water for him without him even asking!

anyways, that's my story, YOUR TURN!

i heard about his while waiting to get a drink at the bar. totally sucks!

In 2004 my husband and I were drinking in the beer garden when we were approached by a man who was obviously out of his mind on something or other. He chatted us up about how he really liked to steal signs from radio station booths, and how he had this huge collection at his house, etc etc etc. He told us that he would buy us a drink, because he had "just come in to a big windfall" of money, and would we like a hit off of his speed pipe? Needless to say, we did not take him up on his offer.

For the rest of the weekend, whenever we heard the "ambulance" noise, we would immediately think of who we dubbed affectionately as "speed pipe man." After all, it WAS about 110 degrees out that year!

The guys all dressed up like 70's joggers last year were classic...going around, high-fiving each other, saying "Good Game, Good Game."

2004...right before Beck, some girl apparantly was wearing a skirt whilst sitting with no underwear, and word of it spread like wild-fire in front of us. You could see every guy turning in her direction to get a look see. Alas, I did not.

Some guy came up to my friend and he was carrying 3 cups and a ball. And he asked my friend if he wants to bet 5 dollars on that game where he shuffles the cups and you guess where the ball is.
1st game: The guy makes it pretty easy and my friend wins 5 dollars.
2nd game: My friend loses 5 dollars.
3rd game: My friend loses 20 dollars.
4th game: My friend loses another 20 dollars.

Did I mention my friend was rolling pretty hard?

Last year on Monday morning somebody had left a flyer for Ladytron under my tent, along with some t-shirt. The t-shirt was white, size XL, and I can't remember what it said exactly, but I remember it being 4:20 related.

In 2005, late Saturday night, a bunch of us at camp were trying to get a soccer game going, and I had a really bad nosebleed. I excused myself to go to the portapotty, where I used my entire pack of tissues in a futile effort to stop the bleeding. And this was a gusher. Blood somehow got on every wall, the door, and all over the toilet seat. And all over my shirt. I looked like Andrew WK. When I returned, a pretty girl asked me if the ball had broken my nose, and figuring that was cooler than having a horrible nosebleed from being allergic to everything out there, I said yeah. Right before security broke up our game efforts and threatened to call the cops on us for breaking the noise curfew, I saw someone walk into that portapotty, only to run out screaming. Twice.

did anyone see this guy last year (on the left)?

http://ivy.aholic.us/gallery/d/580630-3/073_DUDE.jpg

his name is steve and he's a friend-of-a-friend. we live in arizona. well, i saw him early in the day saturday in the dance tent and he had said he was with our mutual friend dude (that's what everyone calls him, no clue what his real name is).

well, during depeche mode, we see this "DUDE" sign walking through the crowd and we figured it must have been steve. my friends had seen him more recently than me and had said he had lost his friends and that his friends had all his stuff. so i ran through the crowd to find him and pulled him back to our friends.

he was kinda freaked out since he couldn't find anyone, but he said he met a bunch of friendly people throughout the day, so it wasn't all bad. he left us after a bit to continue his search (and he eventually found them). it was just hilarious to see this "DUDE" sign in the crowd. i kept wondering what people thought since they wouldn't know it was a name :rotfl

Also, watching Juliette Lewis & Ethan Suplee dance to Spearhead a few years ago. My brother had me take his picture with them.

I saw some pretty wild shit during NIN in '05. Because it was NIN, there were obviously going to be people moshing, but most of the crowd was having none of it and getting the hell away from the moshers. So this large group of us had moved away from the mosh pit, hoping to enjoy NIN without getting hit, and suddenly this HUGE guy (he's seriously like 6'5" 275 pounds and could've easily been a college football player, not just fat, but strong too) tries to start his own mosh pit. No one is having any of it, but he's not getting the hint and just keeps pushing girls over and elbowing everyone in sight. At this point, people are getting pissed, but because this guy is so big and scary, no one is doing anything about it and just trying to get as far away from him as possible. Finally, things are coming to a boiling point, and this little guy (probably 5'8", 140 pounds) is clearly angry and wants to do something. So the next time a mosh pit starts up, he runs up and just tackles the guy, very impressive given the size difference. Still, the guy won't back off, so the little guy runs and tackles him again, and this time goes nuts. He probably hit the big dude in the face like 15-20 times, and finally we think it's over. But no! After being down for a minute or so, the big dude gets back up, face covered in blood, and screams and starts spitting blood all over the place, and tries to start another mosh pit. I think the adrenaline then started to wear off though, cause he fell back down after about a minute and then got up and slinked off out of the crowd. That shit was scary, I think he was on some fucking PCP or meth or something wild.

Maybe I'm just too shy, but I can't imagine walking up to a stranger and telling them about how my brain was fried from too much acid as a kid, my father killed himself, and I just broke my finger for punching a dumpster. And when he and his mom left us, we heard him say "maybe I'll just get lucky with you." Zoinks.

that totally sounds like people staying 2 tents away from me. the kid, his mother and sister all went, and then the mom kept coming and talking to me and these english guys all night for no reason, she was totally high... and then the monday morning we saw her aimlessly wandering around asking for a ride into town, aparently she lost both of her kids that weekend? they were like 18ish or so, and she was a scabby crackwhore.


alllllllso, i was an oddity at coachella 2005, i had broken my leg and arm and was in 2 casts and on crutches the whole weekend... the nurse who put on my casts decided to give me orange and purple striped casts, just in case i didn't stand out enough as it was.... i talked with one guy who, when he found out i am canadian, asked me if mark messier bodychecked me. zing!

that same year i was in the sahara tent for chem bros and this guy beside me kept telling me how high on lsd he was and how it was the most amazing experience of my life, and then as soon as they were finished he turned around to 2 girls behind us, and says "i'm not high or anything right now, but... i totally love you guys." and then attempted to pick i think both of them, up. unsuccessfully.

oh and during nine inch nails i was right up front center, 1 row back from the fence, and it was getting so rowdy in there i threw up crutches over the fence and then got them after the show.

Last year I was in downtown Palm Springs the day after the shows. It was the day that all the Latinos were on strike and they were parading down the main street. After getting our lunch we hopped back in our rental van just in time to get out before the marchers reached where we were parked. So here we are driving down main street with a whole bunch of marchers behind us and I realize that I've got Dirty Sanchez written in huge letters in the dust on our hood. I was hoping someone would take our picture.

The US government was going to pass legislation to make being here illegally a felony, and to also charge anyone who helps those who were here illegally, such as priests, teachers, medical staff, etc with a crime as well. It resulted in massive school walk-outs, protests, and the May 1st boycott (the one they're talking about) where all supporters of those who come here to work were asked to not go to work, but protest instead.

ok i don't know if this is crazy, but it's funny, well to me it is. I think the first or 2nd year we were driving (in golf cart) down one of the roads surrounding the polo field and there was this scalper guy with a sign that said "i need tickets" and we just grabbed the sign as we drove by. The scalper guy was not too happy. So funny..

Hah I remember the car sign.

Last year as we were leaving there was a couple fighting because the chick had lost her boyfriend and wasted all night looking for him, while he was out grooving to Daft Punk with other friends. Every time the guy would try to say something, the chick would interrupt him and say 'you know what?!? f$ck you'. Every. Single. Time.

It was awesome. My friends and I still use that phrase -- you know what?

Right as the Zutons started their set at the outdoor stage two guys in front of me sparked up a J. We were at the way back of the crowd so these dudes were not quite Low Profile. Two copers sweep in before the dudes can get a second hit. One of the smokers was trying to squirm out of the officers reach which only made the cops more hostile. Total buzz kill for me, but a cautionary tale for all of us. Be smart, be hidden. Don't let the good stuff or the man ruin your weekend.

I saw this as well, but I didnt think it was durning Autolux..hmmm..anyway yeah I didnt recognize him cause of all that facial hair but the friend who I was with did :D

OK, here is a part of a re-cap I wrote back from my Coachella 2004 trip. This is the absolute truth. The names have been changed. I give you The Raven Situation. Read this


...When everybody was at the car we decided just to chill there for a while, let the traffic die down, spark one up, and enjoy the moment. We were all just loving the night, the weekend, the experience, and each other. J and I were of course putting on a good show of trying to tell a story and getting nowhere fast with it, when a few yards away from us we saw a terrible sight. There was this young woman pushing a stroller towards us and from behind her this guy came up and pushed her very, very hard. He then said some stuff to her and hit her over the head. I am not sure if it was with his hand or a bottle, but I saw her face and I could tell that it hurt. Now being in the state I was and looking at these people, I first thought that maybe they were just f*cking with us. Like just making a scene to get a reaction and then laugh and ha ha ha. But we all soon realized that this was no joke. This guy hit this girl and was ready to do more if she couldn’t get away from him. So she kinda walked near us, asked us in a very quivering voice if she could join us and she sat down by J and myself. Well the guy stood back for a while and then JN went over to the girl to console the girl. I thought JN did an awesome job of asking questions and just being there for her. The girl explained that he has hit her before because she was with someone else when they were separated. Then the dude slowly walked up to us and asked if he could get a light for a smoke. She said, “Why would you want a light when you don’t even smoke?” So the guy is there, I stand up next to him and take my beer bottle and hold it like I am going to crack this d!ck if he even tries something.
Now let me try and paint a picture for you of what these two looked like. She is wearing all black fishnets, a skirt, top, and shoes. She has bruises on her arms, and short orange-like hair. I decided to call her Matilda. This guy was about 5’6, 125lbs soaking wet. He kinda looked like Jack White from The White Stripes but with zero amount of cool what so ever in him. He was wearing… go figure, black shoes, pants, and a shirt. I decided to call him Raven. Basically, they look like the people you would see at Neo. So Raven is telling Matilda that she is going with him. Well none of us were going to let that happen at all and he starts saying stuff like, “She f*cking cheated on me. Have you ever had someone cheat on you before?” Well I am now standing next to this dumb f*ck, pissed as all hell that our buzz for the entire trip has just been killed, and I burst out with a, “YEAH, YOU F*CK, BUT I NEVER F*CKING HIT HER!!!! ALL OF US HAVE BEEN CHEATED ON!!! IT DOESN’T GIVE YOU ANY F*CKING RIGHT TO HIT A GIRL” So now it seems that I was the guy that Raven was going to deal with. I am not saying that no one else was doing anything because they all were, but I remember what I did because I was freaked out by all of this. So as I am standing there talking to this guy I start to walk through everyone still sitting in the circle and while I do this I am kicking the video camera towards everyone hoping that someone would get the damn hint and start videotaping what was going down. The hint was never received. So this guy is still trying to get her to go with him and she isn’t budging.
The idea was brought up for this guy to walk away for 15 minutes and cool down. I say to the guy in a ‘get the hell out of here kind of voice’ “Dude, I will give you a cigarette if you just walk away. Now will you just leave!!!” The guy stares at me in the eye for a moment and walks away. As he is leaving I shout out, “Thanks for letting me keep my cigarette!!!” So the girl is crying, she introduces us to her baby, the baby looks up, and as if we were in some sort of movie, smiles and giggles. My heart almost jumped out of my mouth and ran away. It was so heartbreaking. Then we are talking how we need to get the cops, and she starts talking as if were right out of a textbook of ‘what battered woman say’. ‘He didn’t mean it.” “It didn’t really hurt.” I deserved it.” Well everyone is like, “F*ck no!!!” During this time, K and I walk to the back of the car to get a water and K suggest that maybe these two are gypsies and might come and rob us. Then we notice the guy walking back but around the other side of the car. I figure he is going to try and grab the stroller and run or something worse so I go and now I am standing next to the baby and across from him. So he starts saying stuff to us and I start saying stuff to him and kinda being a d!ck to him, which he deserved, and I notice his hands. I can’t see them. Right at this moment I look up and he was staring directly into my eyes. The look on his face was scary. It looked like he was going to do something that could absolutely change everyone lives. It looked like he was going to kill me. At least that was what I thought. So in a matter of about seconds I thought to myself, “this guy has a knife or a gun behind his back and is about to kill someone, and that someone is going to be me.” It could have been the enhancements, but I think everyone was thinking the same thing. So I start walking around the circle so I can see what is behind his back. When I get to K, K says, ‘S why don’t you get out of here and get the cops.” I 100% agreed. I looked behind this guys back and all I could see was something that I thought was a lighter but I wasn’t sure.
So I run down to the road out of the lot and grab a cop. He tells me to get in the car and show him where this is taking place. Now this sucked because he didn’t go the way I ran so when we got to the lot I tried explaining to these 2 cops where this was. “Over there straight ahead, no, no, go left it’s right over there by that red van.” So the cops start going to a red van but it wasn’t the one I was talking about. “Then I tell him, “behind you right over there.” I saw where I wanted to go but I could explain it to the cop because I am an idiot. So then the cops say to me, ‘You’re not f*cking with us, are you?” “No, no, look right over there by those people.” And he see’s everyone.
So the cops and I get to the site and they get the guy and put him in cuffs and sit him down by the cop car. One of the cops was with him and the other cop was with the girl and all of us. As he is talking to us he tells her what will happen to him if she presses charges and basically he is f*cked for life. So she is crying, we are all just miserable because of all of this, and that is when the paranoia started to kick in.
At this point the cop is talking to us and asking us who saw her get hit. It was JN, J, P, and my puddled a$$. So he asked to see all of ID’s. Well this whole time I felt like he was looking at me, obviously knowing that I was on something or another and I kept thinking that this guy is going to arrest me too. So when he asks for my ID, I give it to him and then he says, “Would you mind reading your Drivers License Number for me, I can’t see it so well?” So now I am like, “Sure, no problem.” At this moment I could feel everyone just looking at me hoping to God that I wouldn’t f*ck this up. I am about to have a heart attack and I grab the ID and read off the number. I am pretty sure I did a good job of it, but who the hell knows. So now, if this thing goes to trial we might be called upon to serve as witnesses and have to fly out to California for a court case.
It is now about 2 in the morning, we are all ready to get the hell out of there, and the cops decide to leave us along for a moment so we can talk about what should happen. We all were in agreement that this idiot should be locked up. B decided that he should be locked up just for the fact that he was wearing white socks with black pants. That kinda lifted everyone’s spirits. The cop came back with the girl and the decision was made that she was going with the one cop and Raven was going with the other. Fine let’s leave.



Jesus Christ man! What a bloody nightmare. And all you were trying to do was help someone. What a fucking dog's dinner that nearly turned in to.

If you were camping on site, you might have heard the 2 lesbian chicks fighting. It was around 12-1 am and they kept yelling for a good 30-60min. I can't remember everything said, but it was funny as hell. It was right around section G or J 34 (I think). Everyone in the tents around them were tired of their fighting so they started yelling shit. We yelled for popcorn for the midnight movie, and to pass certain items (butter, salt, soda etc...). One of the girls said she was leaving and fuck the whole event, so people started asking for her tickets. I just remember one of them repeating, no fuck you .... (can't remember the name), you always do this to me, why the fuck did I come. Then it started up about how she is a fucking bitch and doesn't know why she is with her.....etc...... Earlier in the day they were in their campsite with the down completely open in just underwear. They were also outside their tent like this........anyone in this camping section last year remember this or thier names? The names were repeated so many times, I cant believe I forgot them.

During the 04 Le Tigre set at the outdoor stage some chick was crazy enough to climb to the very top of the metal frame that arches over the stage and holds all the stagelights. She chilled up there for a bit, tossed out a bunch of flyers into the crowd below (never found out what was on them), climbed back down and was promptly led away by security. Pretty rad.

Not so much 'crazy'...but in 2004 I was asked a record 4 TIMES if I knew where to find any ecstasy. While certainly no stranger to chemical indulgences...I don't exactly LOOK like a 'drug person'. My friends were kinda weirded out by this too, and kept wondering 'Why is everyone targeting YOU today?'

I mean, I'm 100% they were undercover plants trying to bust people...but I was pretty damn conservative looking back then and even had a buzzcut. Found the whole thing really weird. Especially the British chick who kept insisting, 'I KNOW you know where I can get some E...c'mon!' *LOL*

This Mexican guy parked next to us on Saturday last year. He was wearing Hawaiian shorts and blasting techno. We started talking to him and he told us he was a dj and had driven up from Mexico to go to Coachella and buy an akai sampler. Anyway we got to the gate and went our separate ways. We ended up running into him the next day, he told us that he couldn’t find his car and wanted to meet us at the end of the night so that we could show him where he had parked. I guess he was pretty messed up the night before. He couldn’t find his car and ended up just passing out in the parking lot, some guy woke him up and they drove around the fields in the early morning in a stolen golf cart. I guess he didn’t even have a ticket for the second day. Well, when we met him at the end of Sunday night he was with this cute blonde girl who was tripping on acid, he said he had found her inside of a portapotty. Two of my friends walked him to where his car was parked, I guess the girl was leaving with him and according to my friends she had a pretty frightened look on her face when the realization of the fact that she was getting into a car with some guy from Mexico who she had just met that night set in. I hope she was okay.

- Getting 7 liters of Coke for free off the 20 or so caps from empty bottles of Coke lying on the ground after Day 2 ended.

2006 - Yes, I saw Daft Punk.
- Yes, it was, it really was.
- Talking to the Nine Black Alps for 20 minutes because they showed up late to their signing time and no one was there. Someone actually asked them what they sounded like before getting an autograph. *cool hipster laugh*

Coke is doing the mycokerewards.com thing right now.

Cool if you do it, not exciting if you don't.

However, about 20 or so caps this year will get you a game rental at blockbuster. That's about 7 bucks in your pocket.

So maybe there will be a reason to scrounge the ground after each day lol!

ok i don't know if this is crazy, but it's funny, well to me it is. I think the first or 2nd year we were driving (in golf cart) down one of the roads surrounding the polo field and there was this scalper guy with a sign that said "i need tickets" and we just grabbed the sign as we drove by. The scalper guy was not too happy. So funny..

In 05, if you walked from the 2nd Stage to the Tent, in between they had this large sculpture with little drum mallets attached to it. People were banging on the thing making their own drum music sounds, etc...so now it's later in the night and our 10th time passing it and my friend just goes over to it, and half joking but half serious yells "Stop It!, Just Stop It!, That's Enough!...etc" and this one guy comes over to us and thanks us..he said he had been banging on it for over an hour and he didn't know why....LOL

i think he was just really drunk, but no one was getting close, cuz this guy was ready to puke.

The craziest shit I've seen so far was the swarm of bees that attacked during M.I.A. I ran out of there like George Costanza knocking old women and children over...I mean, I was clearing a path for everyone else!...uggh.

Once in the beer garden this girl was wasted out of her mind and started taking her bikini off (top and bottoms). One would think this was a good thing, but trust me, after the rolls of fat settled, I had to find a trash can to puke in. Security saw her and ended up having to chase her around and all I could think was "for the love of god, please stop running!" Still haunts my dreams to this day...

Some dude was passed out outside the Sahara during Kraftwerk and would only wake up every few minutes to puke on himself. He kept rolling over and it was just smearing it even more all over himself. People kept trying to wake him up but there was so much puke you couldn't even tap him on the shoulder without getting it on you. Just proves that drinking $7 Heineken's in the 100 degree heat all day may not be advisable...

I pulled a genius move and left one of my car windows open saturday last year and someone wrote IDIOT in dirt on the back window, but no one took anything.
That just goes to show you the kind of crowd that goes to the concert. No one stole, but they did make sure that I knew I was dumb. And they were right.

I traded someone in the parking lot a signed Eagles of Death Metal cd for a guitar that I still use today.

One of my friends claimed they smoked with J. Devil from EODM when they saw him walking around.

I posted this already on the old board(in the BMOTW thread) but in 2005 we only went to Saturday.We packed up the tent and stuff early Sunday morning and were heading towards the 10,and all of a sudden I saw a flying truck.
It was a huge Ford Excursion and it was 2 or 3 car lengths ahead of us,on the other side of the (two-lane)road,and it was flying upside-down from the left side about 8 or 9 feet high,and it landed with a soft thud on it's driver side in the dirt between the sidewalk and the backyard wall of a house.
The car ahead of us didn't even slow down,and we pulled over a little ahead of the accident.I looked down through the open passenger window and saw a young(kinda hot) girl in her early twenties,crouching on the driver's side door,and she just looked up and said,"Get me out of here!"
I was able to open the passenger door and reached down and pulled her out pretty easily.She was just wearing gym shorts and a t-shirt,and probably weighed just over a hundred pounds.
At this point,a woman from the house peered over the fence and she called 911 (this was before I had a cell phone).The cop arrived about 5 minutes later,and I remember I was kinda nervous because of some items I had in the back of our car,but he just asked what happened and took our names and phone number.I did feel like an idiot because as soon he got there he reached in and turned off the ignition of the truck,something that hadn't ocurred to me in all the commotion.
The most amazing thing was the girl was completely unharmed,no bruises,cuts or even a scratch.She was kinda in shock,and then started worrying because it was her friend's truck she had just borrowed.I don't know if this is good advertising for the truck being safe or not,because while she wasn't hurt,it was,after all,flying when I first saw it.(She said she was going about 40 and swerved to avoid a dip,but then hit the dip when she swerved back and that launched her up in the air.)
The best thing was me and my girlfriend were fighting and she wasn't talking to and we were just starting our trip back to Phoenix,and after this happened everything was o.k.

Thanks for your stories!

I was one of the crazy kids flailing at the swarm of bees at MIA. However, there were swarms of bees at the Pixies [I was SE of the stage] in '04 that did not seem to incite as much terror. I guess I'd rather take a hit for Kim Deal.

I also saw the guy that was picked up in the port-a-potty when the trucks were emptying them. I just wanted to die for him. The amazing thing is that he opened the door, stepped out, put his hat on, and began to walk into the field like nothing had happened (whilst the witnesses' jaws were dropped in sheer horror or empathy). I commend that guy.

Jack Black was in the parking lot after the show in '03. He was dancing around a line of PT Cruisers, all arms and headbanging when my friend exclaimed, "Hey, Jack Black!" He danced a jig up to her, snapped a photo, and continued on his merry way without saying a single word.

Cameron Diaz threw a complete fit when my two stoner pals took a photo of her ass.

I was walking out of the Sahara tent when I saw this insanely smiley, sweaty guy running full-speed toward me. I began to turn around nervously to see where he may have been aiming his sights. Before I could face him again, he had picked me up, twirled me around, mumbled something about sweethearts, put me down and ran away as quickly as he had come. It was Timo Maas. It made my day.

I saw Danny DeVito in the crowd in '03. I can say no more than that.

A really lovely guy asked me to dance in the beer garden while Massive Attack was on. I know it sounds dumb, but it was so sweet. It was one of those perfect-moment moments.

Last year on Jackson Street, a cop directing traffic got hit by a lady in a Cadillac (obviously messed up or disoriented) who had stopped in the middle of the intersection. Obviously full of adrenaline with no back-up around, the officer began hitting the hood of her car with his flashlight and screaming at her as she put her foot on the gas and peeled away into the night. He instantly turned around and began directing traffic again as if nothing had happened.

More later.

My most horrifying moment came during the 35 minute mark of the Daft Punk set. My girlfriend and I endured the Audio Bullies and had a prime spot right behind the front pit area. The feeling in the air was electric and I was more than a few joints into my experience. The music was getting me worked up and I guess I lost track of which woman in front of me was my actual girlfriend. Apparently the girl I grabbed at did not have her boyfriend behind her because she whipped her head around lightning fast with a look of terror! I became petrified immediately when I realized what I had done. I apologized profusely and then clung to my real GF like a baby monkey in that experiment with the scary metal monster. You can hear my stomach sinking on the bootleg I m pretty sure. I wanted to die. The girl seemed to have understood my accident and didn't give a hard time. I think it is a testament to Daft Punk's set that I didn't run away and that the girl continued to enjoy the show.
