    filthy, unkept bathrooms ensures people don't linger in there for extended periods of time. It's a strategy. Dirtier the better.

    Ha Ha - yeah, good luck with that.

    Personal anecdote: I went into one of the bathrooms literally the second I got into the festival at around 1 pm, Firday of 2009, and there was already a colossal turd mountain. I think those things come with the turd mountain pre-installed.

    Look, forget the sanitary issue and let's focus more on the way they have these damn things set up. The person that is responsible for setting up the in/out path to the bathrooms by the Outdoor stage last year needs to be taken outside, beaten, and left bleeding in the moonlight.

    someone should measure the mid-day temperature inside one of those shitters. Its got to be around 120+ degrees in there.

    I remember walking out and feeling the cool 102 degree air as a relief

    I wouldn't dump at Coachella on a bet. I have a very dialed in routine that prevents said poo from occurring at any point during the day and allows me to get back to the hotel room after a long day's festivities, yet prior to movement. And yes, that does mean avoiding the Spicey Pie at 3 in the afternoon.

    QFT. Wasn't there just one opening for the entrance AND exit? What a clusterfuck! I'm pretty sure I remember someone breaking down that fence at one point so more people could get out a different way versus fighting everybody getting in. As far as the nastiness goes they could do better, but I've seen a lot worse.

    As long as I don't see any overflows, I consider it a successful year. In terms of porta potties, anyways.

    portable potties is the way to go if you're camping man.

    $25 is nothing when it comes to having a clean accessible potty you can stick in your privacy tent...

    Never festival camp without one

    I just bought my mini portable toilet! I will use both depending on how scary the porto pots are... But I will be using it at night that's for sure.. Everyone seems to get so fucked up they miss the hole. I don't get it cause even in my most fucked up state I can still make it in the hole. Lmao oh coachella how I love thee!

    This is why you use the nice bathrooms with flush toilets that are tucked away but open to the public, that I didn't discover until late late late night Sunday of last year.

    1. the portapotty situation at coachella isn't HALF as bad as many other festivals i've been to

    2. they have wonderfully clean trailer bathrooms located (i believe) at every section that has the portapottys.. sinks, flushing toilets, even toilet paper! and lights for when it's dark out..

    3. vicodin is your friend.. not only does it help you sleep, reduce the standard aches from the 4-5 days there, it also reduces your appetite (which saves you valuable festival time and money) while making you just constipated enough that you can often avoid having to shit for much of the weekend..

    or, you can all stop being a bunch of pansies and man/woman the fuck up...

    With that being said, be careful of wishing for those "flushable toilets" I have seen many of them even worse than the port-a-potties...

    It comes with the territory...thousand upon thousands of festival-goers=really bad port-a-potty situation...

    #2 is definitely correct. Portopotties only necessary in the campground. Take your shits during the day at the festival and you'll be good. It's just because there are so many portopotties that people assume they don't have an option. For the same reason that everyone crowds the right side of the main stage instead of going around to the left for a better spot.

    #3 is gross but true.

    i remember last year... we left for some outside food on Saturday. Well that sure put a fire under my behind and when we got back we found we had to park in the overflow lot.... I ran like the wind i tell you, must have been over a mile, through a swarm of bees and straight into one of those shitfilled hot boxes. Wasnt really any point to this story, just thought id share.

    A quick jump back in the shower afterwards and ur good to go!
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)
