    Mine changed from day to day, though all told it was probably the Coachella Stage. That was where I spent at least half of Friday, and bits and pieces of the other two days. But I hit everywhere else quite frequently, except the Sahara, where I didn't go too terribly often except for check in and see how people were enjoying it.

    Coachella stage. The 2.5 hour McCartney set, plus the 50 minutes of downtime between him and Morrissey kind of make it no contest.

    Wow, it surprised me when I looked into it and found that I spent more time at the main stage than any other. I think Friday and Sunday I was running around a lot. 2nd and 3rd up for my time was Sahara and Gobi. Only saw 2 acts at the outdoor and 1 in the Mojave.

    The vast majority of my time was spent between the Mohave and the Outdoor. The former I think got a little more time spent.

    Mostly the sahara but lots of day light hours at the do lab. The do lab was fun and refreshing.

    Mainstage: 6
    Outdoor: 4
    Gobi: 4
    Mojave: 0
    Sahara: 7

    Do-Lab: Yes/missed Lucent Dossier though...
    Dome: Late Nite

    Oh how I wish I got inside sooner all 3 days, should have seen atleast 9 more bands/djs than I did (5 of which would have been in the Mohave). The quality experiences I had more than made up for it though.

    I usually spend a good chunk of my time in the Mojave every year.

    Guess what. The Mojave wins again this year but only by one.

    Mojave-5
    Main Stage-4
    Sahara-4
    Gobi-2
    Outdoor-1
    Beer Garden-1
    Dome-1

    Definitely was like the Den Mother in the Sahara this year. In between sets we'd wander over to the Do Lab, and then back to the Sahara.
    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.

    I spent much of my time in the VIP section by The Sahara. I caught most of my acts in the tents. I spent very little time by the stages.

    Wow, I didn't realize this but it's easily Coachella Stage for me. I spent barely any time during the early parts of days at the main, but when you add up the time for the later acts I easily spent more time there than any other. Most of the daytime it felt like I was alternating between Gobi and Mojave, with bouts at the Outdoor and Sahara.
