Only one small portion of it. Excluding the Rage set, I have never seen a cop presence like that - and I've been every year.

OK, well, then it in no way defines my Coachella experience.

i dont know what coachella you went to where there were cops at every corner, but the only cops i saw were by the campgrounds...and thats because the group i was with actually camped next to the cop tents

faxman75

Yep, and even so we still smoked weed all night and all morning every day and never heard a peep about it. The cops I saw were just sitting in their golf carts telling jokes.

there was a "cop tent"?

Was that like the opposite of the pirate tent?

i dont know about a pirate tent, but the group i was with were right on the edge of the camping area, and just outside of the fence was a cop tent...they were constantly watching with their binoculars...we even watched several cops take a handcuffed dude to the tent (cops were carrying a tuperware of fungus)...ask faxman75, he was part of the group...and any time our group was in the campgrounds, you can be sure that there was smoking going on

I haven't spotted myself in anyone's picture, but I got drunk with a guy at the Palm Springs airport on the way home- he had also been to Coachella but I hadn't seen him at all during the fest. When I got home I was looking through my pictures, and I realized that in one of my pictures, he was walking by, front and center in the shot.


It totally creeped me out for a couple minutes until I realized it had to be a coincidence.

Wow, this is the first time I've visited this thread (wondering why, there are some awesome pics in here) and as people are talking about spotting themselves in pics, lo and behold I (almost) spot myself. On the far right the 3 guys lying down (one in the white shirt, one examining set times, the other is barely visible in a black shirt) are 3 of the guys I went with last year, and I'm on their right, just out of picture. My cowboy hat (destroyed on the ride home) is visible to the right of them, though. We hung in the tents early on Friday beating the heat, great flashback. Thanks for posting that gmoneyak

If u have seen the coachella dvd you will know what i am talking about.


When bright eyes is done there is a girl in the front that turns away then back to the stage, her eyes seem to be watered up and she just looks back like "WOW THAT WAS AMAZING". just the simple look on her face is what we all need and want from coachella.

JustSteve
02-24-2008, 02:50 PM
this is how coachella '04 started for me--we heard this terrible skidding tire sound and were looking around for it. turns out it was this chick coming up behind me and she sideswiped me and then took off. we had to chase her down and wait for the police to show up. she was begging for me to not call the police and was offering me $100 for the damage. i was like "um, no". the damage was close to $1000 and i could tell just by looking. she had no license and her mother and 2 children in the car. i felt bad, but had to do what i had to do. the cop came and got all the info. luckily the car was insured by the actual owner, though. the lady? she got a ticket and was sent on her way. i was pretty pissed. this chick was in a hit and run accident, she had no intention of stopping and luckily came up on some coachella traffic. my sister had to jump out of my car and run up and tell the chick to "pull the fuck over!". and all she gets is a fucking ticket?

To be honest, that doesnt look very fun at all. If you are in the back aren't 6' 3" or taller you're just going to be looking at the back of someone's head and listening to the music. Lame.

also I think you are thinking of the Nikon D40? Maybe? Also check out the new Nikon D60, best camera for the money IMO. Unfortunately you won't get it in Coachella without press creds though.

my friends zippy and ashly. this was just before we left for the field on friday. shortly upon arriving, my other friend and i got separated from them. we didn't see them again until we met at the car after bjork. but all day long whenever we'd meet someone they would tell us how the JUST saw our friends. on several occasions we were less than 50 feet away from each other.
Zippy & Ashly...totally cute pic...I didn't see them

aw the teddybears, they were staying at the same hotel as me last year. I met them before sundays show but didnt realize I was talking to teddybears till I saw them on stage and recognized the two drummers (drummers werent wearing bear masks)



I liked that they walked around the grounds in those heads all day.

They also wore those heads when checking into their hotel.

when I talked to them they were unmasked and about to drive their van over to the fest.

broke it off polls sunday night, three of us did it so we split it in threes.

Wow. I would love to have the Friday part of the outdoor theater sign from last year. Gotta love all the ghetto graffiti.

My favorite shot is that Pixies panoramic. One of the things that got me hooked on Coachella is the beauty of the site and the epic scale of everything. After that year I saw so many pics of things I never saw. I spent too much time that year hiding in the sun saving my strength for Radiohead. I didn't even go into the Sahara or Mojave until 2005. Hell, there are still two beer gardens I have yet to enter.

ANYWAY, some of my favorites:

I took it shortly after we parked at about 11:00 on Saturday morning last year. The car hadn't been baking for hours or anything...but I do think it actually only got up to 105 or 106 degrees that day.

Once it's over 100, though, it all feels pretty much the same.

I like how the camera reflects in the shot, what year was that temp taken? 2004? didnt it get up to about 112 in 2004? 2005 made up for it with much lower temps...isnt it annoying how the weekend before coachella is always in the 80s or low 90s and coachella weekend seems to always jump?? seems the temp drops the weekend after as well.

The temp picture was from last year.

And of course the temp jumps right before the festival...that way we earn rights to talk about how much we suffer for our music!

They were right that's 06 that had the air conditioned tent. Last year there was the big energy thing where you could recharge your phone with a bike in that spot.

The full size one is big to the point of silliness - I think it's 30 8 megapixel TIFFS, 10 across by three down, with each shot at around 15 megabytes. Once I find the missing piece, which I'm pretty sure I remember taking, I'll upload a printable one.

No, it was Friday night. John Jackson was playing, but he killed a guy I knew over an argument about who had better hair, so I decided to take a 5 minute constitutional on the grass because I just can't support that kind of thing.


Anyway, I wondered if I could capture any of the cool lights without a tripod, so I just kind of propped my camera on my leg and held the aperture open for about 15 seconds, and then covered the whole area you see, so it's 30 photos, all stitched together later. I actually did quite a few more, covering 360 around and right up to the apex of the lights, but it's impossible to stitch what's basically 90% sky and a bit of light with any accuracy, so I lowered my expectations and came up with this. It's about 200 degrees across by about 120 up.
