from what i have heard, u.s. festivals are a lot mellower than european ones. also plan on it being quite hot and dry, anywhere from mid 90's farenheit to 105 degrees and above if it's like 2004. to me the festival has been like a barbecue you'd have at a pal's house, except you have 50,000 friends for that weekend.

sounds fooking brilliant! t in the park is a bit too radge for me tbh, although a scottish crowd is something everyone should experience!

You will not see mud here. At least in the festival grounds. Maybe there is mud in the stables or something. And it won't rain.

You can bring food and water/soda/juice into the campground. You cannot bring in alcohol. You cannot bring any of that into the festival. It is all conveniently covered in the FAQ section. You should give it a whirl.

The campground is divided up into a grid. They assign you a plot. You don't just get to set up anywhere.

Hey, Rob. I'm originally fae Fife, now live in the US. T in the Park is mental, but theres definitely a very different vibe at festivals over here. Not better, not worse, just different - maybe it's the lack of rain and hypothermia!

I got my tix today - me and the 19 year old stepson. Wife's staying in a Palm Springs hotel by the pool for 3 days! Can't wait!

I'm a Dons fan and I met a fellow sheepshagger at Lollapalooza in Chicago last year when he saw my retro 83 Cup Winners Cup jersey!

hey there rob. this will be my first US festival too! I've been in england for the last 6 years and went to glastonbury 05(when it flooded but we were ok on the hill!), bestival, wireless, lovebox, metro weekender/south west four, electric picnic (in ireland) etc. nothing beats a good british festival i say but im hoping coauchella will be fantastic too! i'm really looking forward to it! are you guys planning on going to glasto this year? i hear the preregistration process is gonna be tough

anyways just thought i'd say hi, make some friends, and get excited about coachella with you all. haha
