    Default How many days did you attend?

    So after reading the Sun article about there being 150,000 people attending this years Coachella, there was a lot of conversation about why they state the attendance numbers that way when in reality a lot of people went all 3 days.

    So I'd like to know exactly how many of us went all 3 versus 1 or 2 days...

    I went all three but I was totally drained by the third day and almost didn't go. I wasn't excited to go day 3. It was kind of like... well, I paid so I better woman up. Personally, I wish it were still only 2 days.

    In my own opinion, you cannot just due one day or even two days of Coach. It has to be all or none...

    Coachella has to be all or nothing!!! When I think of how exhausting the weekend is and how much work it takes to go from stage to stage accross the field and back I think back to when I was a kid and spent a day at disneyland or great america and always asked my parents if we could come back the next day...the answer was always no! So coachella is my 3 day ammusement park vacation!!! Love it!!!

    I revel in the 3 days. By the end of day 2 I'm pretty beat, but for some reason Sunday just seems so easy to rally again and start all over. I think it's because it was only 2 days for so long and the third day is like a special gift. Thank you GV.

    I could go 4 days easy.

    I agree. I'm usually very tired by the end of Saturday, but somehow get a 3rd wind, or 4th, maybe 5th...depends on how hot it is.

    Four days would be rough. There would have to be some REALLY good bands to make that work.

    I love it at 3 days! I can't wait until next year . We are posting up Thursday & won't be leaving until Monday morning. I don't think there is any other way to do it.

    so the trend is quite clear...not only did a good percentage of people go all 3 days (BITCH!!), but most everyone on this messageboard are hardcore Coachella fans that wouldn't go any less than 3 and are wanting 4!

    I think instead of adding an extra day, they should add another span of dates in the early fall, just as it starts to cool off. That way we wouldn't have to wait a full year for coachella...it isn't the amount of days, the heat, the drive that kills me....it's the wait until the next festival!!

    all 3, I cant even imagine going through all the work to go there and camp and all that stuff, and not attend the whole time...if Coachella ever goes back to 2 days, ill be very choked.

    No no, I quite understand. It was an appropriate and deserved BITCH! deployment. I have a good excuse though, I'm in on the wrong side of the Atlantic.

    Someday I'll get to Coachella; if only to see what the sun actually looks like. I mean, I've heard stories, seen pictures, but until I actually witness real, honest-to-God sunshine, then for all I know it's a smell or a sound or something...
