    Default Sunday Night on the campgrounds was the funniest experience of my life

    First off, I dont know if this belongs in Past Experiences or the Camping Section, but w/e.

    To get to the point....

    Did anyone else experience the shit-show that was Sunday night on the campgrounds after the last set finished? I understand if you were to tired and just passed out, but wandering the campgrounds from about 12am-6am just completely changed my thoughts on Coachella 2010. The campgrounds were like a giant detox tank for a bunch of strung-out people that just refused to stop partying. I literally could just walk out of my tent and start cracking up just looking at the pure chaos and mayhem ensuing the campgrounds.

    It was sooo funny seeing the word party being broken down too its bare elements by the end of the night. We went from over-produced DJ sets at the beginning of the night too people starting mini-dance parties because some guy was beating on a cone that made some strange bass sounds. It was seriously the most tribal thing I have ever seen or been a part of.

    I myself was too tired to go out the other two nights so I can't accurately say if this was any different from the other two nights. Chances are it was though, because Friday & Saturday they actually had real Dj's spinning. Also, the only reason I was out partying Sunday was because I wasnt ready for Coachella to finish and I am sure there were a bunch of other people that thought this way.

    So did anyone else take part in the tribal mayhem that was Sunday night? Any Stories?
    G-funk acquired, thank you Coachella

    I filmed a little bit of the blue peace sign flag parade down my firelane, but I filmed from my chair b/c I was too tired to party. Boo. Had to get up in the AM to pack up camp and catch a flight, which we inevitably missed. Haha.

    Haha. Monday was one of the funniest experiences of my life. Sunday night the girl I came with said we'll wake up at 6 AM (Monday) and leave by 7 to make our noon flight out of LAX. I laughed b/c I knew we would miss the plane but I didn't care. So, I woke up a little late. A new friend helped me pack all my shit up. For that I gave him a bunch of my camping gear I couldn't fly back with. We got in the rented Jeep, got super stoned and flew down the freeway. Made some wrong turns, laughed our asses off. Got to LAX 30 minutes too late to check in. Went to Delta Special Services, booked another flight departing at 12:50 AM. We fucked around in LAX, ate, slept on the floor, met some other Coachella people stranded in the airport. Then, we took a cab to our new camping friends' hotel in LA. We had dinner, then they dropped us off at LAX after. Danny Masterson was on our plane. He's filming a show in my town. I'm going to have his babies.

    sunday night was what made coachella for me. started off by before gorillaz finding my friend i was looking for for two hours, receiving la coca from a bananaman, and finally seeiing the gorillaz which wasnt that special but i met some kool people there. the campgrounds was awesome smoked medical herb for the first time 3g L then the guy who sparked me up gave me 2g's for free just for being a chill dude and showing them how to roll a blunt from a game...? so i went over to one of the parties and sat down with this really chill dude, old enough to be my own father, he asks to hit my pipe i reply in the most stoner manner, "Dude its the peace pipe, you gotta hit this" so for 2 hours sat and smoked with him talked about life. but in the time i smoked with him, i'd say atleast 40 people hit that bowl before the 5-0 showed up. it was magical, o ya i also got to smoke with those two dudes makin the crazy dubstep beats for like 3 hours while hopping around the site. made me feel special lol. This was my first coachella too so i still want more and hope to come back next year. Thank you Coachella

    what amazed me... is that thing just kept growing... I was still up at 3AM when it was about 40 people strong.

    I awoke an hour later to who knows how many people... it just grew!

    Was it 6AM when security finally felt compelled to do something?

    This year it was about 300 people. It was absolutely bonkers. My favorite was when some guy was playing a vuvuzela into the air really annoyingly, then some guy walks up and pours his beer into it and the vuvuzela guy chokes for a bit and then chugs it like a champ.

    Didn't take part, but a total spectator. Highlight was listening as my Aussie neighbors virally spread a rumor they had heard. Daft Punk was playing the other campground. They were so pumped. About an hour later they made it back, very pissed.
    There was also an incident a few rows away that I didn't get to see, but would have loved to. Lots of shouting, oohs and awws, then a chant of "fuck you I won't do what you tell me" for about 6 bars. It remains a mystery.
    Glad you had fun!

    Not too mention the "dance party" that was going on in the VIP area (I think it was a VIP area) in the middle of the campgrounds. The MC was not only strung out but drunk off his ass, they were playing the shittiest music, dance-floor was filled with the dirtiest/sleeziest looking people I have ever seen.... yet everyone was dancing. No one wanted the party too stop. Shit wasss sooo funny



    Shhiiiitt. I have more stories from that one night than I have my past 5 years going to Coachella

    In my experience, up until Sunday night the whole time in my head I was telling myself "this shit aint worth it, why the fuck did I do this rather than go in on a house"

    I lived on no sleep and just Spicy Pie for four days straight. Who knows if I would have even had the energy to go out sunday night if I hadnt taken 3-4 hits of alien spit around 7:45. But as I said, that night just changed it all. Soooo much fun. Even if I am not camping I am returning to the campsite every sunday night from now on.

    Now that I think of it, I feel an excess amount of people were tripping because of The Gorrilaz playing. Who knows if that many tripping people will be there in the Sundays of the future.

    Camped for 4 years and only now realized to stay in a condo all nights.....except the last one. That way you can really get the rest you need to go hard all day long, then on the last day with nothing to wake up for we partied until the sun came up. This is the best year I have "flowed" through Coachella yet because of that. I mean if you rage that hard in camping everynight you are worthless for at least half the next day and you are going to miss or not be fully present for alot of shows. I think I have found my balance. Damn though, Sunday night was crazy. Felt tribal and primitive, people getting downany way possible. Loved it.

    Sunday night was a BLAST!!! Our group started it off on the roller rink doing tribal dances and shouting nonsense. Then the water jugs came out of no where and people were getting way into it. When we were finished with that we headed to a camp spot where most people were and then the mob started from there and I lasted until about 530am.

    Hahahahahahahha, Sunday night was full of dirty epicness for sure!! It was one insane dance party till the sun came up. So many heads were just wyling out for sooo many hours. I was STUCK in my chair but surrounded by the biggest smiles just laughing and dancing and having an amazing time. Definitely one of my favorite parts of the whole thing. Thanks for bringing it back!

    Sunday was incredible and insane. I wandered to and from various campsites, got caught up in that parachute thing, danced at the Andrew/Feather PAW campsite and blacked out at 4am with my last memory being my friend offering up absinthe, shrooms, and coke. Woke up in my tent at 8am confused as hell. I wasn't tripping, so I must've declined the shrooms...

    I think everyone was just so disappointed with the way the Gorillaz set ended (especially with the way last year ended with The Cure) that nobody was ready for the last memory of Coachella to be such a downer. I know that's how my camp felt so we wandered around for a couple hours talking and meeting awesome people, and ended up playing drunk drugged out twister for a couple hours till we couldn't stand anymore.

    i didn't camp this year. Friday night, i was NOT ready at all to have the night be over, so for about 30 minutes I talked to some really great people just sitting on the lawn by the cocktails, lounged on the couch area and saw JayZ walk past us, then i dont know how...but i have 2 videos of my way venturing outwards, and someone took me to the playground, where i found myself waiting in line to Swing on those neon swings, which seemed like a perfect idea, so I swang for enough until I wanted to avoid nausea...wandered more over to some more grass hill, by the FILTH party, where my cocktail kicked IN and i could only stare at people, film, haha, and try to figure out what was all going on, why were people in giant mowhawks and army gear all standing around talking, dancing, making out (all on film too), until I finally, finally, come up enough to stand up, and walk around back sober now and walk another mile or two back to my avenue 52 car, which was SO fucking far, i had to ask about 3 yellow shirts which direction, and i even had my iPhone coachella ap and marked my car. That was my favorite night. So, considering camping, although I went alone this year (fell thru plans). Not sure how I feel about ACTUALLY staying there...I didn't mind driving back to my hotel in PS, taking a high pressure shower, change clothes, sleep, and on the drive back, pick up more lovely supplies from the Grocery store, where the friendliest people in the world were there too.

    the clock in my car read 4:45 am. my car was the only one left in the lot. unharmed.

    There were some serious hangers-on in the campgrounds Sunday night. People were trying to party as if their life depended on it.

    Sunday night camping is always the best night


    there are no activities leaving people to get creative

    and its the last night, so no one wants to stop partying





    I however passed out as planned because I had a early flight in the morning and was nervous about the morning.

    My buddy didn't sleep all night and had a blast

    I really was done after plastikman's set. Just closed my weekend well for me. I really didn't want to take another pill and be up for another 10 hours. It was time for me.


    Had a blast in the campground this year though, always half the fun.
