    Here's a few conversations I had or overheard:

    "Who are you excited about seeing?"
    "Phantogram."
    "They aren't playing."
    "Since when? I know they were on the lineup. For real.

    "I looooove southern frat guys."

    Girl that wanted to see Dum Dum Girls after hearing about SISU (which features 2 of the DDGs): "Nah, that doesn't sound like my thing. I'm all about the trap and dubstep."

    "Justin Timberlake fucking nailed it at Coachella last year."

    "Bitches get wasted so they won't feel guilty about fucking. Blurred Lines, man."

    My friend said she was talking with some young-ish group while waiting for Pharrell:

    Friend: "What are you watching next?"

    Guy: "MUSE! They're the best! That's the reason I came"

    Friend: "Mmm, okay" (she hates Muse)

    Guy: "How about you?"

    Friend: "Pet Shop Boys!"

    Guy: "Pet shop who?"

    Friend: "Pet Shop Boys!"

    Guy: "Never heard of them"

    INT. SAHARA TENT - NIGHT

    Empire of the Sun is playing "Standing on a Shore" to a packed tent where everyone is loving the set, singing every lyric.

    BRO, 23, leads GIRLFRIEND, 22 through the sea of people to make sure they can get as close to the front as possible without any regard for other festival attendees. DUDE, 26, sees what is happening, and doesn't budge when Bro tries to pass by. Bro then ties harder to get by and Dude gives him a bump-check. Bro pushes Dude hard.

    BRO
    Come at me bro! (Pause) Do you even lift!?

    Dude's jaw drops. He is speechless.

    Bro and Girlfriend move on.

    My buddies saw this situation where some girl pepper sprayed a camp and then got her ass tased by security.
    On Friday for shit sake.

    Friday, around 2pm, we saw a girl in a USA flag bikini being dragged out of the fest by her friends. It just baffles me how easy people go down be it dehydration, drugs or just the heat in general.
    Water and shade people!
    Saved two girls at DFA. Come at me karma.

    The absolute funniest thing I've seen in my 3 years at Coachella was when the monitors for Girl Talk started showing Bryan Ferry's performance for about half the set. It synched up better than you'd expect and the sight of Ferry rapping along to dance music was hilarious. I wish I'd gotten some better video/audio of it.

    There was also a pretty funny drama in the crowd near me for Arcade Fire. This guy was dancing with a brunette girl for a bit when a typical socal looking blond approached him and started flirting with him hard. At first, he indicated he was already with this other girl, but the blond just wouldn't quit - she was all over him. Eventually the brunette got sick of it and moved away. Then the guy started dancing with the blond, but the blond eventually got bored and left with her friends. The brunette came back over to rub it in his face and then moved away again. Dude got greedy and ended up with no one. Ha!

    The brunette was cute too, not sure why he'd pass her up. I wanted to go talk to her, but the crowd was way too thick at that point.

    Short blond girl who was in front of me during NHM, who was clearly not into the set, and even said it once. She filmed most of the set with her iphone, periodically resting the phone on the head of the girl in front of her and turning the phone to herself and sticking her tongue out. Fuck you girl.

    a couple was making out, and a girl walks by and goes "awww, hashtag love." the worst.

    i was waiting by my locker for about half an hour on sunday, right by the entrance coming from the day parking area. saw 3 people get their wristbands denied at the scanner, and then just run for it, and they all got in. security was absurdly lazy about it.. the guys in the blue shirts that were standing just past the scanners, they would scream RUNNER! and then just turn and watch the people sprint off. didn't chase them. didn't radio to anyone else. just let them go.

    at the same entrance, some guy walked up to the exit line with 4 or 5 wristbands sticking out of his pocket. the lady at the exit scanner noticed, said what's in your pocket, he shoved them further into his pocket, said uhhhh i dunno. she moved towards him, and he just took off and ran out the exit. i wonder if he and whoever he wanted to sneak in got back in.

Are you sure my jorts still look cute? Wait, guys, let me take a selfie!"

    Funny things I've overheard though? I'm sure I'll hear plenty this weekend, but in 2012 I was dragged with my friends to Sahara near the end of Guetta's TRAINWRECK of a set and there was a part where he turned the filter way down so you only heard the slight 'thump' of the beat for a gooood whole minute and some chick trippin hard in front of me turns to her friend and asks "I'm so confused Lisa... I'm dancing, but is there even music playing?"
