    This will be my seventh Coachella by myself and I'm hating life. It's awful. Why do I even bother?

    I always go with a lot of friends. And thats cool, but sometimes I wish I could go by myself, because I know I would meet some new friends and I wouldn't have that binding feeling of not seeing everyone I would like to see. Do what I want to do u know.

    i think i'm going by myself this year, too. my friend from out of town was supposed to come with me but he didn't get tickets in time & we can't afford to pay the ridiculous ebay prices or anything. it shouldn't be too bad, though. it means you don't have to worry about working your schedule around anyone elses, & i'm sure you'll meet plenty of new people.

    I'm going by myself this year, and it will be BLISS.
    No friends making me miss the bands I want to see, making me get stuck in hideous traffic, bitching and moaning all day, and worse. You would not believe what I've had to put up with the last two years.
    I will be alone and loving every second. Ahh.

    I'm going with two friends, but we'll probably split up to see different acts we like.

    Yeah, one of my friends didn't want to go too far up close to the stage last year. I love getting closer to the stage.

    There seem to be a lot of bay area people on this board, quite a few have said they are going alone, so I'm sure you could make friends for the show if you really wanted.

    I always see CL posts for people looking for platonic "dates" -- someone to tag along to shows with them. I never understood the point, I kinda prefer going to most shows along, so that I don't have to pretend to give a damn about the other person's level of interest.

    I wouldn't want to go alone...but I'm from WI and that's a long journey to go by myself. I need people around me.

    However, I understand the wanting to see your bands thing. Sometimes people hinder you when in a group because of wanting to do different things. I am going with five friends, but I believe I will be splitting up with them for a bit while I see certain bands.

    Does going places alone usually suck for you? It really depends on your attitude. Just be friendly, and don't be afraid to talk to people.

    Going alone rules! I always end up running in to a ton of people I know anyway. Now with myspace/message boards you can meet up with friends you haven't even met yet.

    I usually go with a bunch of people and it's always fun but this year I am going alone - looking forward to doing it at my own pace.

    Yes, dontfeed, you're camping with Bjork on Friday; but she's camping with ME Thursday night. I can make her do that thing with her voice, so she likes to check in the eve before a big show.

    And that's me with her in the Pagan Poetry video.

    you won't have to keep track of anyone, plus you get to see and do whatever you want without anyone else to consider. you'll most likely run into someone you know or make new friends so just make the most of it, you're gonna have fun.

    I have been to one music festival by my self and it does suck after the show because you can't talk to anyone about it..I have to add that particular festival was not Coachella.

    I always go with my niece and her best friend and they go off and check out what they want to see and i go off by myself and we meet up when someone comes on we all want to see then we go off again. It's great.
    And we are constantly letting each other know (by text) what we are listening to and where we will be next. Works great.

    Cool Re: does going to coachella by yourself suck?

    Hi there,

    does going to coachella by yourself suck?

    I think it depends on how much you like the bands. Last year I went by myself wanting to see: Depeche Mode, Franz Ferdinand, Wolfmother, Yeah yeah yeahs, coheed and cambria, eagles of death metal, daft punk and the glorious return of my favorite band TOOL.
    I had a great time. If I had gone with somebody, probably we would've gotten lost in the middle of a mosh pit or maybe he wanted to see other bands.

    This time the only artists that I like are Bjork, sonic youth and Rage.
    So, i'm thinking of not going at all. I would only go if I had somebody cool to go with.

    Cheers

    J.

    If those are the only bands you like, I feel bad for you, spending all that money on tickets.

    I think going alone forces you to be very friendly, and make new friends. Atleast for me anyways. Looking foward to meeting as many cool people as I can.
