Thread: Thursday at Coachella

  1. #1

    Default Thursday at Coachella

    My group will be leaving the bay area early Thursday to get up to Coachella by like 7 or so hopefully. What generally goes on that Thursday night? How many people generally make the trip up and are set up on Thursday?

    I would say that at least half or more of the campers arrive on Thursday. You can expect a chaotic preparty with all your new Coachella friends. Also, there is usually some kind of entertainment along the lines of movies, karaoke and last year DJs spinning in the Dome.

    If you are not camping, there isn't much of a nightlife in the Indio area.

    I heard some people saying things like "Bring back the dome" Is there a chance there won't be a dome this year?

    Thursday night is a great party night. By around 10 pm, most people are finished setting up their campsite and wandering around getting to know your neighbors. lots of excitement as people are playing music and usually (in the last 2 years i think) the spotlights on the field are moving and the dome is rocking

    So... not to be obtuse, but is there any confirmation that the place will be rocking Thursday night? Will the Dome be present and bumping?

    I hope that's not the case...It sounds like a BLAST. The first night of a festival is always so incredible b/c u know you've got the whole weekend in front of you. I feel like it wouldnt be as fun w/o live music.


    IVANKAY, your pictures are awesome man

    Will the campgrounds be accessible during late night? For instance, if I get to the campgrounds at 2 a.m. on Friday, will they still let me set-up a tent and such?

    well, to be honest, it wasn't live music, it was just dj's spinning, and with the car camping, there will be several people doing that in the campgrounds.. i'm not sad about missing the dome thursday, just the rest of the weekend when people crash and go to sleep and i wanna stay up with all the whomp whomp

    yes, last year they were open 24 hours.. but be warned, from 2pm until about 3am there will be a line.. (TIP: go to the reentry line first to get your wristband, then go back to get your stuff, which you can then take though the faster reentry camping stuff check station.... although, with car camping, this is all gonna be different this year; i think people will end up tailgating in the old parking lot which i think will house the line of cars waiting to get in.._)

    Thursday is a great day of free for all partying, once you get your gear erected. Same goes for your tent too.

    Seriously tho, everyone is filled with excitement and anticipation of Friday. I find it hard to make myself fall asleep on Thursday night. By the time Friday night rolls around, a lot of us are tired as fkuc and just wanna chill, hear some jokes, camp music, get drunk/high and fall asleep. /rinse repeat

    Yes we are first timers as well looking for an awesome time. Will be arriving in LAX on Thursday and be on the campgrounds that night.

    From past experiences do people all party up together or is it very clicky where people stay in the groups they arrived in?

    My durgs booze and partying is for everyone.

    Thursday is the biggest party ever! Everyone is in such a good-i mean GREAT mood that night. I guess it's that feeling you have of butterflies while waiting in line for a roller coaster. You don't want to miss out on thursday night camping.

    its mostly a communal place, people are nice about having fun 2gether. my 1st yr camping we were next to people from baltimore, oregon & new mexico & they were all nice. we had a pow wow everyday cuz during the night evveryone is usually pooped especially if your in the festival early.

    You could either pick pits out of dates or utilize the public library. The choices are endless.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
