    Default 25 Tips on Making an Enjoyable Festival Experience

    Hey guys,

    So I started this blog that is 100% about Coachella [mainly this years festival] in an effort to get my juices flowing beyond belief. I gathered a list of 25 tips on how to make it an awesome experience.

    Please check out the site for more updates as well as our Twitter @CoachellaCfdntl.

    Are you a music festival newbie? Not quite sure how to fully prepare yourself? Enclosed below are some helpful hints, taking from both myself as well as others. I trekked the Austin City Limits festival in Austin in '06 so these tips aren't exclusive to Coachella, but they translate pretty well considering TX in mid-September is just as hot to bear as SoCal in mid-April. A lot of this information was gathered around the net from Coachella heads.

    1. Read Coachella Message Board
    2. Take what you read and put it in a blog
    3. Tell the Coachella Message Board about it!

    Look I said I gathered the info from mostly elsewhere, didn't know it would be looked at such a bad thing. If I were a first timer I'd like the information handily available and cleanly typed so I didn't have to sort through douchey elitist comments to get to the information I want.

    Anyways, the blog is mostly for myself but if I can help out other people then thats great too. This board has been a good source of info.

    The more help and/or "how to" threads there are, the better.
    My first year, I read everything I could get my hands on.

    this dude's blog is almost word for word the same advice in C DUB YA's thread. I'm all for the "how to" threads, they really saved my ass for my first Coachella, but if you are gonna make a new one, bring some new tips.

    You copied the info and reworded it....how dumb
    Do you think we are?

    Retard..you said,'I got the info from other places.' Maybe try attending the festival so you can ACTUALLY write about it.

    I have an idea for people to search the Internet,..I'll call it gooooogle.

    Think it'll work guys?

    The only thing you created is the lamest thread ever...so congrats for that

    What a stupid fucking thread. Why don't one of you little cunts provide 200 words on an artist playing this year and post in an existing thread?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Coachella Confidential, this is called spam. You could just post a link from your advertisers here and say "please click, need money" instead.

    I wear converse every day of the festival every year and my feet are fine well past "the second band's set on Friday." All weekend long, in fact.


    Also this made me giggle:

    Austin City Limits festival in Austin
    REALLY???

    I AM SO FUCKING SICK OF THAT RAPE GUY SHOWING UP IN EVERY THREAD.
    Sad thing is that he is not being posted in every thread as in a way thats "oh look im going to piss people off and post him in every single thread" kind of thing. People actually just keep trying to be chan funny.
    STOP.
