    Default Why this year has the potential to be the best Coachella ever

    1. Camping situation VASTLY improved. Camping with cars, cooking allowed, most likely chiller security, plus the coveted privilege of ins/outs! Oh yeah and you can bring alcohol in, can't argue with that.

    2. No single day passes. While some may hate this new rule I think it will benefit the festival experience as a whole for those who do go. Diehards only.

    3. The longest Coachella ever! Not only is it 3 days (that started in 2007) but we get a guaranteed extra hour on both Friday and Saturday!

    4. Late night activities. Great late-night dome lineup in the campsite + roller skating, hell fucking yes.

    5. The fucking lineup. This year's Sunday is one of the best days Coachella has ever had, hands down.

    Yeah so I was bored and just thinking about how great Coachella is going to be this year, can't fucking wait. Plus the weather is probably going to be nice, definitely better than those late April dates of the past.

    11 days!!

    Behind 2006 and 2008, I'm certain that this one will be up there for me.

    2008 was amazing!

    07 was my 1st year but id give just about anything to have gone to 06.

    THAT was the best line up ever.

    this will be my first coachella and I absolutely cannot wait! I've only been to one festival before this (Sasquatch 09) and I loved it. The lineup at Sasquatch last year was epic for how small the festival usually is but Coachella is on a completely different level this year.

    See you all there!

    This is the first year that I want to (and most likely will) see all three headliners. So yes, I agree this has the potential to be my favorite Coachella.

    I've gone since 07 and here's how I look back at past Coachella's: 07 had my single favorite headliner of any year (RATM), 08 had my single favorite night (KraftPortisPrince) and 09 I simply had the best time regardless of the music (which was still awesome) from start to finish. This year could better than any of those.

    11 DAYS!!!

    I agree Rob it is going to be the best Coachella yet! That's saying a lot too. They have only gotten better each year for me.

    This is going to be my 1st Coachella too. In fact, it'll be my 1st concert since taking my kids to the Wiggles a few years ago. It's also going to be our 1st vacation without the kids in over 5 years. I can't wait.
    Even though I look it, I'm not a cop.

    QFT. Been going since 04, and every year has something new and surprising and unexpected. I think my favorite memories of every year are things I never could have predicted beforehand.

    This is my first Coach - and even though I've wanted to come ever since I heard about the festival, looking back I can't imagine ever getting half as excited for past lineups as I am for 2010. Fuckin' Gorillaz, man!

    I've been going since 2004, and those first two years were pretty amazing. However, 2007 was my favorite year, but I am optimistic for 2010.

    '06 was my first Coachella, but this year I've gotten so much more involved (camping, meeting people, etc) that I think it will easily top '06, but that fukkin line up was AMAZING!!

    Opinion of course, but the 2006 lineup without Daft Punk to me just can't compare to 2007 and 2008. And I love Tool, but Depeche Mode was weak and again it was only 2 days that year. But it was my first and is what got me hooked. 2008 was my favorite year experience wise, virtual tie between '07 and '08 as for as lineups go.

    And reason #6: Best Sahara lineup in years, starring Orbital. Will for me probably top any Sahara act since Justice -> LCD soundsystem in '07. Again personal opinion, but shit is definitely better than last year.

    10 days.

    this will be my 10th Coachella, and I haven't been this excited about a line up since 2004.

    2004 and 08 tie for alltime best (08 after the Aphex and Prince adds).
