    Default I Give Up

    The conflicts are crazy. So many bands I thought I'd be seeing, but guess I won't get to now. I'm realizing there's no point in freaking out. I'm just going to relax and have a good time. So what if I miss a band. I'll just drink more and get the fuck over it. Here's to a fun filled crazy weekend.

    OMG THANK YOU!

    Now I can masturbate without having to worry about you not having a good time at Coachella.

    /phew

    Thanks again.

    I haven't decided yet. Even the thought of choosing is exhausting. Play it by ear, I guess.

    this your first rodeo cowboy?

    a word of advice...take it or leave it (everyone has a different approach)

    pick a few bands each day that you really wanna see, and show up at the stage about 1/2 - 1 hour ahead of time (depending on how big they are). this way you can get a 1/2 way decent spot and enjoy yourself for the people you really wanna see, and then run around and try and catch pieces of sets if you want at other times.

    if your not careful you'll spend your whole time seeing everyone, but not really seeing anyone, if you follow.

    tru dat
    Coachella is a place beyond conventional geography, a time not measured in hours or minutes, an experience, a state of mind, an attitude, and a holy form of expression. The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival is an annual festival put on by Goldenvoice in Indio, CA. Please don't confuse the two.

    i agree. except for the drinking part. i've never bought a beer in my ten coachellas attended.

    by the way, even though this is the eleventh year, it's the tenth annual coachella (didn't happen in 2000).

    agreed

    the year coachella doesn't have conflicts is the year i wouldn't spend $1250 and 2 days vacation to fly out to the desert.

    don't worry about things you miss. It's absolutely inevitable. Just concentrate on enjoying what you do get to experience and you'll have a great time. No sense wasting energy lamenting the negative aspect.

    There seems to be a potentially painful sunburn scenario here. Although, you're going to have to figure out how to blow sunshine first.

    This is my seventh Coachella.

    I run from stage to stage getting mainly pieces of everything I want with a few full sets here and there.

    You never remember what you didnt see. Just what you saw.

    All these overlaps mean you're going to have a jam-packed weekend chockablock full of Awesome.

    So let's live it.

    pick a few bands each day that you really wanna see, and show up at the stage about 1/2 - 1 hour ahead of time (depending on how big they are). this way you can get a 1/2 way decent spot and enjoy yourself for the people you really wanna see, and then run around and try and catch pieces of sets if you want at other times.

    Disagree completely. You're missing good music if you're trying to get to the front that way. Just show up as the band starts, sqeeze past the casual viewers at the back, and then let the natural flow of the crowd will pull you forward as people leave. By the end of the set you will be up close enough for a really good view, without any shoving required.

    The exception is main-stage acts. For those, go up the LEFT side of the sound booth to get closest, usually right as the previous act is ending. Be aware of where the divider is, and get in front of it if desired. If you really, really need to get rail, do this 1 act earlier so you can steal rail from someone who is leaving.
