    bring saline solution for contacts if you wear them. bring saline nasal spray for your sinus. it's very dry. oh and the desert does get cold at night, people always tell you about the extreme heat but pack a sweatshirt if your camping

    I'm used to a little more humidity, so I have to drink at least a gallon of water a day to combat the dryness at Coachella.

    Since many people disregarded the fact that you've been to a music festival before when responding to your post ("there's more than one stage, dude") I'll try and list the ways that Coachella will be different from what you've come to expect at Glastonbury.

    Things You'll Like:

    1) Less people. Coachella has less than half the attendance that Glasto does. More space, more comfort, easier to get around. Last year I booked ass from another stage and to catch Portishead's set - got there right as they came on and watched their performance from maybe 200 feet from stage. Would've had to camp out there all day to get that spot at Glastonbury.
    2) Been stated before, but no mud, not even any crab grass. Just finely groomed polo-pitch as far as the eye can see.
    3) Better looking women. No offense to UK dames, but they've got nothing on SoCal women. Plus it's hot, so clothing is minimal. Candy for the eyes.
    4) Amazing variety of food - at least by English standards. Again, don't mean to insult your country, but you're not known for your culinary mastery.

    Things You Won't Like:

    1) The "drinking cages." They suck, no getting around that, but I'm sure it's necessary for insurance purposes. Look on the bright side: it's a good place to meet people, and at least there's no limit on how many you can buy. At All Points West last year every able-bodied drinker had a 5 beer maximum. Now that fuckin blows.
    2) The beer. Hope you like Heineken - that's all they serve. If you're used to swilling pints of cider and dark ale than you probably won't be too excited to pay $7 for 12ounces of "piss lager" as I've heard it described by some your fellow countrymen.
    3) The no-alcohol policy at the camp ground. Everyone still drinks, but beer is problematic to get in, so if that's your favorite drink than you may be out of luck.
    4) About half the people attending aren't camping. While this isn't necesarily a bad thing (people generally smell better) there's less of the down-in-the-dirt "we're all in this together" type comradery you feel at other festivals.

    So basically all of your annoyances will be alcohol related - get past that and you'll have a blast. Everything else about the festival is top-notch.

    Thank you. You just made my night hahaha

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    Coachella is one of the best things you will ever experience! It is an interactive music and arts playground that keeps you smiling all day long. The only thing you could ever worry about is a conflict between bands and most people are there for the same reason so you feel connected with thousands.

    Coachella is my happy place.
