    Sorry no, those block the view of other festival goers.
    But I bought one inside the event last year, a paper parasol that was very cool, and used it each day, no issues. I did not use it while listening to music of course because that would block other peoples view, but I used it walking around and did not get at all sunburned:-)

    Just slow the smoking around 11:00PM and your buzz will last you through 1am....upon getting back you should be able to sleep.

    I see too many that show up Sunday saying they missed Sat because they went all out on Friday.

    It's a marathon....pace yourself according.

    I party from 3pm drinking and smoking till about 11:00pm ....head home...take 4 asprin and off to bed...
    good breakfast - always a smoothie with - fruit, protein powder and glucosamine *spelling?* and cram down food even if it's tough to do.

    Pace yourself and you can have a blast for 3 days

    the other huge thing that'll kill you is not using sunscreen....don't put any on and you'll be out of commission. Put some on the second you leave to the festival and put it on again in the middle of the afternoon....every day....there's no such thing as too much sunscreen for this festival.

    Look around on Saturday...some people are already looking BEAT RED!
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!

    The way I look at it is that these are the three days of the year when I am free. These are my three days, and I am going to do anything and everything I can to have as much fun as possible. Party all Thursday night, wake up around 11 Friday, Smoke and drink until you get to the festival, make routine runs back to the car throughout the day, and at night indulge in whatever mind changing substance you'd like. And repeat for all three days.
    HAVE FUN.

    water, sunscreen, getting enough sleep (earplugs if you're camping!) etc...

    my personal salvation is gatorade powder and nutrigrain bars. I bring the individual gatorade packets and pour one into a water bottle and chug it every morning, then eat a nutrigrain bar. no matter how much i want to die before, i always feel like a real person again afterwards.

    The 3 days I spend at Coachella are nothing compared to the shit I have to survive the other 362 days out of the year. Piece of cake.
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    ^^ agreed. Last year I was falling asleep every night well after 3am and waking up only four to six hours later. Still went full throttle each day. Then sadly had to work monday which was the worse.

    As for while you're at the fest, take it easy on the alcohol early in the day. I look at pictures from my first year in 08 and can see how shitfaced drunk I was a 2 PM with mustard all over my face from being too drunk to eat a hot dog properly. Don't be like me.
    pfft, lightweights. i take the monday after off and that's it.

    Spewshmano has it right...

    party your ass off every day...but drag your ass up on Saturday and repeat on Sunday....key is to be able to drag you ass up and get your body going when it doesn't.

    it's harder to do when it's 110 and your tent is 150 degrees....but it doesn't look like it'll be that hot this year.

    I've made it through all three days fine but come Tuesday when I go back to work (at a constantly busy as fuck restaurant) I'm burnt out. I remember reading in a thread somewhere that there's morning vitamins people take before rolling that keep your serotonin up and your mind clear. I think they provided a link to a site with the breakdown of how each of the vitamins help you out. Anybody know what I'm talking about? I wanna invest on these things this year

    At the beginning of the day, I buy about 8 bottles of water and 3-4 gatorades. Store these in my bag and go for the day.

    My survival guide is to pace yourself.

    Take xanax in the mornings.
    Take 5-HTP supplements.
    Take vitamin supplements.
    Avoid drinking in excess.
    Stay cool during the day.
    Get plenty of rest.
    Chug water before bed.

    you should probably retire to your tent before nightfall, it gets significantly colder. Wouldn't want to catch a cold
