    Yep, we have a friend with a house down the street. Endless water (to drink and bathe), comfy bed, A/C, breakfast made for us, no noise. Been Coachella-ing for many years and we're just too old for the stuff outside of the music.

    Stretch your legs, neck, back during the day...you'll feel the soreness at night. Hats are a lifesaver considering it's going to be in the high 90's.

    It's easy!

    Get lots of sleep if you can. It will make the last day so much better!
    Eat well, drink lots of water this weekend!

    And like LongTimer says, Stretch your body and I find pacing yourself, will keep you from having to nap and miss the real shows later!

    It's such a waste of good music, sleeping during the shows. Tell your friends to shut up so you can sleep or bring ear plugs!

    I always stretch well before snorting a line. Don't wanna pull a muscle.


    Seriously though...people that get sick and have the flu, depression ect.
    ARE THE ECSTASY USERS. That shit is garbage. Serotonin cannot be produced quick enough no matter how much 5htp or ginko or golden seal you take. Before you roll drugs and most other vitamins are low quality and not chelated or useable by your system. Your pissing out most of it.

    -Vitamin C every morning before the fest
    -Drink a half gallon of water before the fest, and before sleep
    -Hot shower, it really does wonders
    -Pace yourself with bud, I know you can't have too much of a good thing, but it'll slow you down a bit if you smoke too much too early.
    -Try to time it so that whatever mind-expanding substances you take start to wear off around the time you should be going to sleep
    -Eat a good breakfast
    -Stretch before the fest

    people get sick off alcohol, shrooms and everything else just as easily lol.

    its all about moderation, being responsible and knowing what you are putting in your body.

    Were not talking getting sick while on drugs,

    Were talking being sick for two weeks afterwards and calling it a coachella flu. Fools take ten beans a day and roll brains and then they are empty, and brain damaged.

    Acid, shrooms will not leave you sick for days or depressed. Opposite really. Alcohol is the worst drug ever as far as immune system and feeling like death afterwards. Iin my moronic opinion

    well, i do agree with you. but 10 pills a day is just not being responsible at all haha. if you know what you are doing, you will be just as fine as anybody else. i guess thats the point i was trying to make. but people already know that, and if you don't..

    then good luck

    Have plenty of weed. Even if you don't smoke normally, weed works well on the comedowns of most substances.

    Pace yourself....whatever it is....

    sunscreen up before and at lunch - will help a lot

    shower if possible

    hook up and get laid - super bonus

    have plenty of water

    get a locker

    good walking shoes

    large hat

    sunglasses (2 pairs in case one gets lost)

    pace yourself and you'll be fine.

    This will be my first Coachella since 2004 but from this and other festivals, I have learned that its not a competition to see as many bands as possible.

    There is a temptation when the schedule is released to circle something for every moment of the day. My suggestion is to find your essential bands to see and play the rest by ear. Coachella seem

    Relax and enjoy the weekend. Take a nap if you need to. Hang out under the shade with friends. Go back to the camp for a beer break and meal. CHUG water. If you are thirsty you are dehydrated.

    But mainly have fun, be positive and enjoy yourself

    I'd NEVER leave the festival grounds....

    and try to see as many bands as you can....everyone has their own idea...as Tharris above

    Party on - get in every ounce you can for once the sun goes down on that day....you aren't getting it back.

    I'm always depressed when the sun sets on Sunday...as I know it's the final night.

    Seriously such a bittersweet time, I love Coachella at sunset.... it starts to cool, the lights come on, and the sky turns beautiful colors. But it always goes by too fast and on Sunday you know you won't have that feeling again for another year. Last year was especially beautiful, pink skys into whipping winds and a full moon. I'm just gald I get two Sunday sunsets this year!!!!!

    Now I just have to figure out how to survive all 6 days!

    Same sentiments as everyone above. I think I felt the come down of Coachella during gorillaz set. I did not party that night, but that changes this year.

    -hotel vs.camping: a *good* hotel is best, but I think a great tent/campsite would be better than a shitty hotel...IMHO. But even good hotels can have issues...I got stuck in the elevator for 2 hours at the Grand Champions a few years ago, which caused me to miss a band I really wanted to see. Shit happens.

    -if you're driving to the festival each day (from home or a hotel), leave some water in the car when you park. You will be glad to have done so, when you return to your car at the end of the day (bonus if it's ice cold). Substitute beers at your peril.

    -get as much water as you can comfortably carry as soon as you enter the grounds (I always bring a small backpack mainly for this reason). Buy more water when you're running low...don't wait until you're out of water and thirsty.

    -many people don't realize that it can get chilly in the evening, especially if walking back to a car (more on that below) Consider bringing a hoody or something, unless the forecast is very warm. Getting cold will make you even more tired.

    -in the heat of the day, spend some time in the shade whenever possible. Sunscreen, wide brim hat, shades,etc.

    -again for the daily commuters: the parking lots can be confusing at night...do your best to remember where you parked, write it down somewhere or email it to yourself before you enter the festival grounds. Note some of the landmarks you walk past along the way. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people exhausted, crying, dehydrated, and generally freaking out because they've been searching for their car for 2 hours and have no clue where it could be. Don't be that person because you'll bum me out.

    -wear sensible shoes, especially if you have any foot problems.

    I don't sleep for 3 days... then sleep for three days when i get back. This plan is full proof. Except last year I slept through my boyfriends birthday. He understood.

    Two words: Gold Bond. If you're like me, three days of sweating profusely, dancing and walking for long distances will leave you mighty chafed. By Sunday last year I could barely walk. Won't make the same mistake this year.
