Looks like the violent femmes are on a good portion of peoples lists. Can't wait to see them next week!
We left around 8 or 9 last year on Monday and were out of there in 15 minutes. We were near the exit though.
Local natives are cool. Blur and band of horses as well.
Weekend 2 has now jumped down to the mid-80's according to Accuweather. Please stay there!!!
Very happy overall. Only major conflict is New Order vs. Phoenix and I have already picked New Order. Saw Phoenix in 2010 so that made the choice easy.
Jeff the brotherhood
Weekend 2 is slowly creeping into the high 90s. I'm having flashbacks of 106 from last year. Fuck!!!
Phoenix/New Order (new order wins)
Metric/Johnny Marr (gonna watch all of marr and catch the end of metric)
Cloud Nothings/Smith Westerns (leaning towards the smith westerns)
Anyone see them recently with the new guitarist? I hear he's pretty awesome. I just wish frusciante was going to be there.
So what you're saying is they won't be there?
Pretty much any time, day or night, there will be people up and walking around. People are usually up drinking/dancing for the most part for a couple hours after the festival grounds close.
It truly was terrible. Was completely worth it to be up close for arcade fire though. They fucking killed it that year.
Name some of the bands you're looking forward to seeing and that will give me an idea of what other types of bands you will like.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Worst set I have ever had to sit through was animal collective in 2010. Had to watch them so we would be as close as possible for arcade fire. So fucking boring.....
I'll get back to you when set times come out
Edm doesn't make much sense to me either but I never knock someone for the music they like. I have a few buddies with very similar taste in music as me that also happen to love certain djs. Doesn't...
Thee oh sees
Something tells me that won't be happening.....
There's usually about an hour window for me each day when I go back to camp and get cleaned up, eat a little food, and get all my supplies together that I will need for the night and then head back...
Just be smart about where you hide your shit. Put it at the bottom of your pile of stuff in your trunk, and bury it deep inside whatever bag its in. Make small talk with the people searching your car...
Last year we just filled a backpack with empty water bottles and put the spray bottle under all of them. No one wanted to take all the waters out to get to the bottom so that always worked. Otherwise...
Completely agree with this. Pick a few bands that are must sees or are so rare its your only chance to see them and let each day take you where it will from there.
I know a lot of people will be wondering who they are and complaining about them, I just dont get why people are so upset about it. If you dont find them worthy then dont go or find another band to...
If people are upset about the stone roses headlining then go to another festival. Its really that simple. The fact is that coachella almost always has a headliner that sets them apart from other...
Thank you for the suggestions. I'll probably get some tarp similar to the ones you guys suggested as the walls for the canopy. Anything that can get me an extra hour of sleep in the morning will be...
The last three years of camping my group has done a poor job covering our tent so that it stays cool for as long as possible in the morning. Any suggestions for this year? We are planning on putting...
Early day sets can be as short as 30 minutes and get closer to 50 as you get later in the day. Anything past 4 will likely be 45-50 minutes. Headliners play for an hour and a half to two hours...
150 for the weekend. Bring your own beer and food and save some money.
That would be awesome if thee oh sees and Jeff the brotherhood were back to back during the day in the same tent.
Same here. Loved the first album and thought the second was pretty good. I've seen then twice now and they were awesome both times.
I already considered that. I just dont have a way to get there. Any ideas?
Lou reed- I'm waiting for the man
Violent Femmes- American music/ blister in the sun
Jeff the brotherhood- Bone jam
Jurassic 5- What's golden
Johnny Marr- How...
Just recently got into this band. I loved spoon when they played a few years ago. Just another band to try and fit in for the weekend.
Friday: Jake bugg, earl sweatshirt, Aesop rock
Saturday: reignwolf, kids these days, pusha t, Janelle monae, danny brown, dropkick murphys
Sunday: white arrows, cloud nothings, thee oh sees,...
Stone roses/yeah yeah yeahs/lou reed/jurrasic 5
Two of the three years I've been to coachella our neighbors have been awesome and we always hung out with them at night and went to a few shows together. The other year our neighbors were never...
Wow he can rip it up! Can't wait for this set.
That would be ideal. I dont think they are big enough to get anything better than a late afternoon tent slot though.
I just watched this yesterday and thought it was awesome. It sucks that such an influential and important band was doomed by bad contracts and a shitty manager.
Should be one of the best day shows of the weekend
So would you call it a French album because it was recorded in France?
I've been listening to their first album for the last few days and can see why people love them. Its solid all the way through and will for sure be making am attempt to see them on friday.
Yeah yeah yeahs - 9/10
Saw them a few years back in vegas. They put on an amazing show. Karen O has great stage presence, nick is an awesome guitarist, and the drummer rips it up.
