    This is exactly why I'm camping this year, and not staying in the mansion my friends rent every year. Don't get me wrong....the house is fun. But (especially Friday) there are a lot of bands that play early in the day that I'll be glad I was there for.

    They don't suck. More room for me. If they're paying to not see half the festival, that's their problem.

    i haven't experienced it for a couple of years now, but that whole waiting on other people to get out and on the road can drive a brother nuts. Missed a lot of cool stuff because of people dilly dallying.

    Yeah, every year i've got to prep a Coachella variation of the Lollygaggers spech from Bull Durham.

    "You guys. You lollygag your way around the pool. You lollygag your way down to breakfast. You lollygag in and out of the shower. You know what that makes you?"
    "Lollygaggers?"
    "LOLLYGAGGERS."

    I can't hate on the late-arrival people too much though. Last year we had a couple staying with us who wanted to go check out Joshua Tree before heading into the festival saturday, and by the time they got done there they just said "screw it" and skipped saturday entirely!

    Ummm wasn't Saturday 2008 the day that had Prince, Portishead, Kraftwerk, etc etc etc? WOW. I can't possibly imagine what goes through peoples heads who think "oh hey, I traveled all the way here, and I have a ticket to that, but you know what, let's just stay home instead."

    But in any case, I agree with BrettShipes: more space for me!

    yes let's have everyone arrive at noon. the place will be packed headliner-like for the opening bands. great. and those not camping will have no problem with traffic or parking.

    What does it fucking matter to you what time other people show up for the fest? Does it negatively impact you in any way?

    in all my years of going to coachella, i have never been there right when the doors open, ever. i think the earliest i've gotten there is maybe 1:30, and that was saturday 2008 as it was the only day i had planned on going and i wanted to get it all in. other than that, fuck getting there right as it opens, i'd rather take my time getting ready and have all the energy i need to dance my ass off later in the day.

    I think we got there around 4ish everyday. After the long hours of party the night before it was nice to wake up in our tent just as it got hot, head to our hotel and chill for awhile, restock our booze supply, have a nice lunch in an air conditioned restaraunt and head in. Not quite sundown but i don't know that I could put in the entire 12 hours straight, I don't think I would do anything different this year.

    the camping-and-hotelling combo is a strange idea... maybe brilliant though? sounds expensive.

    def feel ya on the air conditioned lunch.

    Sounds great. i think 3-4 is a great time to show up. However, 6-7? No.

    We split the cost for the hotel between 3, this time will be 4 if not more. It was about 20 minute drive from polo fields, so a little less spendy. Our guy friend didn't show up till Saturday afternoon so Friday night my sis and I left when everyone else did (felt weird about being 2 chicks camping alone for some dumb reason) and it took an hour to get to the hotel room, but at 7 am when the sun came up the next day it only took us 20 minutes. It was nice to have a place to shower and rest, I wouldn't do it any different now that I spoiled myself the first time around. I think it cost me $80 extra for the whole weekend but well worth it for me since I have horrible body image and the thought of showering with everyone else made me break out in a nervous rash.

    ^^

    i think the best feeling showers of all time are coachella campground showers. cooling off and feeling clean is so refreshing after a few sweaty, dusty hours in the desert sun.

    I have a feeling the folks you're posting about aren't really the same demographic as the forum.

    I was thinking the same, most of us want to squeeze every drop of coachella as possible.
