    Default How are you going to spend the time before the 1st sets come on?

    The firsts sets start at about noon, right? So how do you plan on spending those pre-noon hours? I've learned from my first festival to be prepared!

    I won't be wasting many of my hours at Coachella sleeping.

    I plan on bringing like 3 soccer balls, if you play football look for me! I'll be starting some games!

    How much open space is there in the campgrounds? Not much space is needed for a small sided mach, but it would be cool to get a whole bunch of people involved.

    I'll also bring a frisbee or two. Frisbees are great. I love throwing them at people I don't know. Hey you!! Catch the frisbee!

    How do you plan on spending the early daylight hours? Sleeping? or...

    I will be trying to sleep.
    If you throw a frisbee at me i probably won't try to catch it. if it hits my vehicle it will become my frisbee.

    I'm going to catch your frisbee and throw it in a port-a-potty because you make shitty threads.

    I'm all for internet hate but if this kid wants to huck frisbees why the F not. I'm glad the hate is a side effect of not having coachella and when one boardie get back it leaves them!

    I'm gonna be sun-bathing my pale Minnesota ass. When it gets to be in the mid 90s during the afternoon, it's more in the 80s during the morning... good tannin weather.

    Yep, same here. After getting cleaned up and fed, it's usually about time to get in line to head in. Not really anything that needs a plan

    I like to get my shower in pretty much as soon as they open. Afterwards I will crack a beer, eat some grub, and listen to some tunes. If I've found some pot, I'll probably be smoking that too.

    I'm usually in the grounds by 10am, so I usually just hang out backstage and listen to the soundchecks, or sleep in the Sahara, or wait to get into the record store before every one else.

    i like to wake up in a nice air conditioned house, go for a dip in the pool out back, take a little nap, then hit up subway for a sandwich on the drive down the street to the venue. maybe this year i'll look for menik while waiting for the masses to enter, too.

    I'm going to wake up as soon as the showers open so I can be clean without having to stand in line. Then I'm going to come back to my shade canopy to cuddle with my camping fan and a cooler full of ice while trying to get some more sleep.
