    Default First time ever dealing with coachella or a lineup?!?!

    So, someone told me that the headlining band/performer usually goes up last. Does that mean Paul McCartney, aka the love of my life, is going last?!?!



    Help!

    the headliner is usually last on the main stage, and sometimes there is one more act in the sahara for those who feel like dancin, dancin

    why the "!??!?!" in the thread title if it's a statement...
    I'm almost as confused as you.

    Yes. McCartney will be last on Friday's mainstage between the hours of 10:30 and midnight/12:30

    Paul McCartney will be playing Friday Morning, 11:00am at the festival gates. I hope that clears things up for you.

    If you believe 11 AM then you don't deserve to see him.

    There is a reason the lower-level acts are usually referred to as "opening acts." They "open" the show and get the crowd hyped for the "headliner."

    If people start talking on the internet like they do on Twitter I will join an Amish community and never be on a computer again.

    Get there when the gates open.
    Sit at the main stage from noon until 10 pm. You'll have to tolerate shitty bands, but you'll be front and center for Macca.

    He will play whenever he wants to. To be safe I would stand in front of the main stage from 11am till midnight. I mean you should, I will be walking around in a constant circle listening to about 15 minutes of everybody, I don;t know which is dumber.

    No, no, no - everyone is WRONG. You can only see him if you have a camping ticket because he is only playing after hours in the dome.

    amorypaz:

    reading between the lines here, i'm guessing that you've never been to coachella and don't know any of the other bands, and that you're probably only going Friday.

    my advice: look at the set times when they come out wednesday, find at least 3 or 4 early bands to see (check the "lineup" section for youtubes, etc) and then watch Franz Ferdinand, Morrissey, then McCartney on the big stage. You'll be able to get closer and closer after each show. DO NOT TRY TO STAY THERE ALL DAY YOU WILL BE MISERABLE / DEHYDRATED / MAYBE DEAD by the time Macca arrives.

    also suggest tent shows for early stuff...shade = happiness

    good luck

    Here's what you're gonna do...enjoy yourself! If you go just to see Macca you'll miss out on so much good music, the ambiance, the fun, the hilarity...it's paradise. Do yourself a favor and research the rest of the bands on friday on the Coachella lineup page or coachooser. I've seen Macca before, and it's awesome to say the least...he's a living legend, and he's got the most unbelievable discography of songs to choose from. But don't miss out on the rest of the fun.

    Friday: Alberta Cross, The Courteeners, White Lies, Gui Boratto, Ryan Bingham, Noah & the Whale, Los Campesinos!, The Airborne Toxic Event, M. Ward, The Hold Steady, Beirut, Conor Oberst & the Mystic Valley Band, Ghostland Observatory, The Black Keys, The Crystal Method, Franz Ferdinand, Girl Talk, Morrissey...Paul McCartney.

    That's who I hope to see, check em out if the full list is too daunting...and there's always the dolab and the dome and the art...I've wound myself up and gone on about this much too long now...
