Thread: Who's Been to Every Coachella?

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Who's Been to Every Coachella?

    My wife and I have, plus our friend Tik:Tok. We heard about the first one through my old boss' brother who wrote for Spin at the time. That first one was in Sept or Oct and it was sooo hot. Glad it's now at the end of April. They didn't do Coachella in 2000, so this will be our 9th one!!! They better do something cool for the 10th Coachella--a whole week?!?

    my bro & i have been every day of every year... he read about the first one in some little newspaper clip, called me up & asked if i wanted to go see Rage & TOOL, DJ Shadow, Beck, etc. & of course i was all over it... we went the first year & swore we'd never miss it. this was the first year we actually discussed NOT going all 3 days, but we decided we had to, just because there probably aren't very many of us true veterans left out there....

    remember how some of the schedules that were passed out were stapled incorrectly so all the acts in the tents were switched for sat/sun.... my bro & i kept wandering around trying to see different bands & figured the scheduling was all fucked up. it wasn't until sunday that we figured out what was wrong. that sucked...

    i'm a every year/every day attendee. i remember the joy of finding out about the first Coachella. When i read it was going to be a European type festival in the US, giddiness built up because of the years of jealosy from reading about all the fun they were having over there. Thanks GV for putting on one of the best things ever. my soul appreciates it.

    I do remember this, but fortunately was not one who ended up with a bad one. It seemed like almost every set there was at least one person asked us who was playing with a very confused expression. Too funny. Eventually it became a game.

    "Yeah, that person has one of the wrong ones."

    How many years do you have to go until you're a vet?
