    Default Are you going to Coachella?

    A lot of us seem pretty bummed, some are even talking about not going. So I was curious who is going to do what.

    If I didn't live in the desert, I wouldn't go. It's not worth traveling more than 100 miles for this lineup.

    I'm still not sure. More than likely I will though.

    I already have a motel reservation and I like enough bands that I will go. Also, I love the experience of Coachella, it is more magical than anything Doug Henning ever accomplished. By the way, Doug Henning looked like Gallagher with a full head of hair.

    Coachella was the greatest 3 days of my life last year. I said then I wouldn't miss another one the rest of my life. I still don't think I will (miss one), but it's sure not the excitement level last year with Arcade Fire, Bjork, Rage, etc. I think I'll still go, and it will still be a glorious vacation, but it's a bit underwhelming considering the suspense/excitement I had been feeling until the lineup came out.

    I'll be going and will have a great time. Some additions would be nice, but there are enough bands I want to see to justify the cost.

    Coachella's always a great experience but this year...
    friends may be thinking this might be the opportunity to get out to another fest---preferably hippie free.

    I'd have to say it's up in the air right now.

    I think a lot of us are in the same boat, and will be wiling to wait and see what the other fests parade out this year.

    I don't know yet (I never thought I'd say that of Coachella). Depends on the other fest lineups I guess, Bonnaroo should be announcing its lineup soon.

    Only going because I live 20-30 min from there. I will only be going to maybe 2 out of the 3 days, IF that.

    What a shitty line up.

    I feel like I have to go Saturday to see Portishead because they are in my top 2 most-desired-to-see acts, excluding corpses. But then $110 for a ticket, plus $50 on busfare (or gas)? Expensive as hell. So I'd have to go Sunday as well to make it worth my while.

    If there are no announced Portishead shows anytime soon, I'll be there. If not, then no.

    I love Coachella and for everything it is (not just the music line up), but for this year to be honest I wouldn't pay what I end up having to dish out for everything if I lived farther than 7 or so driving hours away. I'm sure gas is gonna be AT LEAST $4 a gallon by then.

    Talking Re: Are you going to Coachella?

    I love coachella , not just the bands but the experience. I love the fact if I'm not enjoying a band I can just walk 100 feet away for a whole new experience, from the dance tents, the exploding fire balls or just to wander in a drunken stooper looking at all the hotties. I have fallen in love with some of the bands Coachella has introduced me too and I look forward to finding the gems in this years line up. I'm building my Rhapsody playlist now so I can make my picks. I so excited

    I'm going and steering clear of the main stage on Fri. I'm sure there will be someone else on that I'll like. Saturday seems to be my favorite day tho. Sunday needs more meat on it... do you think they'll add more? Do they usually add stuff after the lineup poster is released? Someone said PT mentioned SURPRISES...
