    Default CAMPING @ MAINSTAGE ON FRIDAY FOR MACCA

    Well...I mean, I hope no one good is playing. Although, I would be tempted to see Amy Winehouse....Haha!

    Either way, you will see me at the front for Paul. I was raised on the Beatles; this pretty much makes my life complete.

    Also, I have a huge old man crush on him.

    With all due respect, Mr. Kitt Kat, you make terrible decisions. And I mean that in the most respectful way possible.

    You should be able to see Amy Winehouse still on Saturday, and she is playing the mainstage.

    I camped out over 3 hours early for Daft Punk in 2006. Camped out for Rage in 2007 right before Willie took the stage. Camped out 2 1/2 hours early for Aphex. No food. No water.

    I don't understand why you need to be in very very very front for a band like Rage. Or any band at coachella really.

    its amazing to think of when i was a teen i would be up front and fight for it and get bruised chest from being pressed against the railing...now i cant be fucked to be in that crowd. I got old.

    Plus I am always too short so i get a bit clausterphobic (sic?).
    ANd i like getting a good view of the whole stage, especially when there are visuals.

    I camped out at the Coachella Stage until 8 pm on Sunday in 2003. Whirlwind Heat, Soundtrack of Our Lives, the Mars Volta, Polyphonic Spree, Jack Johnson, Sonic Youth and the White Stripes. Maybe I'm missing a band or two in there.

    That was the run of band we wanted to see, the only band scheduled on the other stages that tempted me to leave was Primal Scream, but their set ran into Sonic Youth and they were one of the bands I was most looking forward to. Also, I guess, the Libertines ended up playing their make-up set in there but it conflicted with somebody I rather wanted to see, too.

    We brought a dozen bottles of water and a few bags of chips (was all the non-perishable food we could find.) We survived, even if we were near crushed while the White Stripes were playing. Climbed the barrier to get out of there as fast as possible after they were done to make it to Underworld.

    But yeah, I am not doing that again. It's just not worth it to be that close. It was hot and we had no escape from the shade other than the water flat. It was boring, just sitting there between sets. It was really boring, just sitting there for Jack Johnson. Damn, that was awful.

    I was gonna camp for the big 3 on Saturday last year, but i got in fine right before Kraftwerk began. I saw people coming in for Prince late too, without too much shoving. Although, Macca will draw alot more people i believe, so camping might be smart. I wouldnt show up before Morrissey though. If he does end up before Macca.

    Of course, all of this goes out the window if you actually like the artists that are on before Macca.

    I made the mistake of camping at the mainstage in 2003. I vowed never to do it again.

    If it goes Cohen > Franz > Morrissey > Paul, then I will probably camp out there. BUT, I know how to get to the front of the main stage pretty easily...so I might just go before Morrissey.

    I made very little effort to get a good spot for Rage, and the movement of the crowd had me to the front of the barricade by the middle of their set.

    I take back my previous statement. I will not camp at the mainstage because there are too many acts I have to see on Friday. I will fight my way as close as possible though.

    There's really no need to camp the main stage. You can slide in late and still work your way up to the front pretty easily. I managed to work my way up to the front left for Prince last year, and that was coming from way in the back.

    Now, it's a different story if someone you like is in a small tent like the Gobi, then it can be tough to get close. But there's usually plenty of room near the main stage.

    I like calling him Sir Paul. Macca sounds too Perez Hilton.

    I never camped...somehow or another I made it pretty close to the stage.

    I just never had a strong urge to be super close. I make as close as I can get and move to the next great performance.......gawd, I love Coachella!
