Thursday at 4pm? I'm there.
The great thing about going Weekend 2 is that I can check in on the webcast Weekend 1 to see what's what,
because I think this is about the most stacked Coachella yet (my fifteenth).
I went both weekends in 2012 but like last year and this one I'm just going to Weekend 2.
The broadcast Weekend 1 is just too good to miss and it informs what I could miss or what I must catch...
Week Two for me (my fifteenth) -
2. THE KNIFE
3. Bryan Ferry
4. Hot Since 82 / Nina Kraviz
5. CARAVAN PALACE
and 25 others.
Yay Yay Yay! Sunday.
Because I've already seen many in this incredible lineup, these are the acts I need to catch:
Fr - Caravan Palace, Hot Since 82, The Knife, Outkast
Sa - Unlocking the Truth, Darkside, Lorde
Excluding Muse I have found at least 25 acts I need to see each day and THEN I found F - Solomun and GOAT, Sa - Saints of Valory, UNLOCKING THE TRUTH and Nicola Moudaber, Su - Bombino and Toy Dolls....
Weekend Two will be my fifteenth.
I was freshly divorced and kinda sad in 2001 when I decided to drive out to see what this was.
When St. Germain took the Outdoor Stage that afternoon I got happy...
This will be my fifteenth and I kind of cried a lot when I saw the lineup this time.
This might be the best one yet.
I'd never heard of Amine Edge & Dance - what a great party into Jamie Jones who took Best In Show Sunday.
This set was from Aug 31 in Brazil and is pretty similar to what they brought here:...
Brodinski was way dancey dancey under those shade trees and then Breakbot kept it bouncing. Breach disappointed a little but holy wow Gesaffelstein from the beer garden was the highlight of the...
Beautiful day Saturday. Arrived for RL Grime, holy wow really good. Duke Dumont and Nick Thayer were banging but then Disclosure - crazy dance party When A Fire Starts To Burn 2nd piece in. Alvin...
Saturday - XXYYXX into RL Grime into SBTRKT into DISCLOSURE into Dog Blood into Alvin Risk into TNGHT into Duck Sauce into Knife Party/Oliver.
Sunday - FEADZ into J.PHLIP into BRODINSKI into...
This was my fourteenth.
Everything about it was perfect.
The sound, the sights, the weather, holy crow.
And everybody was SO nice!
Camped South 110th with the flower garden.
I'm sooooooo happy VINTAGE TROUBLE no longer conflicts with REIGNWOLF!!!!
The VT clip from the Letterman performance blew me away, but I will NOT miss REIGNWOLF!!!!
Cannot Wait to Hail Satan!
I think this is the new way to go - buy Weekend 2 and watch this incredible coverage. It's NFL coverage-good. Seriously.
Very long line now to enter Yuma from my buddy there.
I must be inside for The 2 Bears next week.
I'm thinking Reignwolf then open the Yuma and camp there.
I think they just cut it - starts again at 3:30pm.
I liked HTDA but I kept hearing a voice in my head yelling IT'S A TERRIBLE LIE the whole time. Weird.
Agreed about Purity Ring. May have to dig myself out of the Yuma for this but my bud who is there said there was a line to get in to DJ Harvey...
This is the first Coachella I've missed after 13 in a row.
I went both weekends last year and it kicked my ass. I heard Radiohead W1 under the blankets in my camper in the rain.
I'm camping next...
Saturday afternoon of 2008 I was recovering from the absolute psychological slaughter of Aphex Twin the night before so I took a nap beside the tent where the Cinematic Orchestra played and it was...
Unless the Week One broadcast shows me something radically different -
The 2 Bears
(...because I'm catching The Selecter/Lee Scratch/Skinny Lister at the Glass...
Joe from Hot Chip is one of The Two Bears, they're billed fourth-to-last on Saturday.
I cannot wait for both acts.
2001 - St. Germain - just unbelievable in the mid afternoon, my first time there, date palms behind the Outdoor Stage, everybody was swinging. It was perfect perfect.
2002 - Tiesto - I thought djs...
I shot this commercial on the Friday before Daft Punk in 2006.
Psychic Friend warned us not to miss this show.
Two crew members who had tickets were hoping they would wrap before Coachella, I hope...
Consider this: Hwy 62 up to Landers, the Integratron will probs be closed on the Monday but Kate from the B52s owns a one-year-old Gulfstream trailer park which she individually decorated - take the...
I'm sure I'll be watching in tears.
I missed 1999 but went every day, every year since I was 41 years old.
After 13 in a row I'm missing Weekend 1 this year but I'll get to see my first webcast of what's going on.
Coachella really is...
HOLY FUCK! Saskatoon boy based in Seattle now. My jaw is on the ground. Will not miss early Saturday.
Brilliant Undercard, brilliant. This will be my 14th and I may not even see a headliner this time around.
Lou Reed, How to Destroy Angels, Local Natives, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of...
That was INCREDIBLE!
It's $1 PBR cans at La Cuevita tonight from 10pm to midnight. Near the Highland Park Gold Line station on Figueroa. Go pregame.
Best lineup, best weather, best setup, best sound (Harder stage could've been louder), and this was a ridiculously good two days. Gesaffelstein was amazing, Chromeo, A-Trak (plus what I saw of Surkin...
This is why I watch this message board. I saw the lineup for FYF today and the top two lines immediately took my head off but the talent is so deep for this one. Thank you for sharing the videos...
Everybody at the Woogie was dancing with each other.
It's kind of different than being in an crowd who are all facing the stage with their cameras in the air.
And waaaay more bare naked boobies...
Bassnectar's bass caused the surrounding portapotties to splash up their nectar.
Good call Creep, Pumpkin was ungood.
Nice Festival though.
Rain, cold, wind, but hot today. It's excellent this year camping in the middle of Stringbean. Fewer rules and everybody is so nice and deleriously happy to be here. Sickety sick drops and wob wob...
Or Peruvian bands because I've always found them to be on the short side so you are guaranteed a clear view from in front of the sound board (which is where you should be in the first place).
Weekend One was waaaaaay too cold on Fri/Sat evenings. I listened to Radiohead bundled up in my camper (happily, Lot 5 is right beside the main stage). I had to play a lot of dodgeball just to keep...
Doing two weekends was incredible but I am really tired and cannot quite believe real life resumes tomorrow.
These were my 12th and 13th straight. This time camping in the heart of Lot 8 central to...
$10 for a LARGE bag.
1. Modeselektor (took Best In Show)
2. Gary Clark Jr.
3. Azealia Banks
5. Snoopy and Dre and Friends
Also - EVERYTIME I caught an act at the Do Lab, it was bangity banging. ...
After setting up my EZup Thursday aft I removed the canopy that evening and didn't even replace it Sunday when I could've used the shade as I was so spooked by so many flying structures. Lot 5 was...
Band of Skulls vs Metronomy vs Le Butcherettes vs First Aid Kit vs Zedd hurts me a little on a totally stacked Sunday.
It's REALLY HAPPENING.
Also, if you do happen to see a tortoise out there please give it a lot of room.
If you scare it it could pee out everything it needs to survive and I think they're already in trouble, seriously.
"You can drive hella fast out there without worry. There are no cops, or anyone else for that matter."
