Dancing In The Desert and Loving Every Minute of Coachella!
Check out my Coachella pictures at Flickr.com under AJVaughn.com. Other art work there also!
There are 3 Coachella sets on Flickr.
Really encouraged by this thread. What a vibe! It's gonna be my first Coachella - most people on this board, and this thread in particular have a fucking brilliant attitude!
Just feel like doing the Ric Flair walk, and a "WOOOO!"
I would take UK beer any day of the week, I just felt like sticking up for the strength of american beer. I miss proper ale like bees would miss honey.
although his is my 1st coachella its my 14th trip to LA
my shy awkwardness has always been accepted cos of the love of accents
"i could listen to you talk all night" being a recurring theme
the words Bus, But, Buttie, Rubbish, and No seem to be favourites
as for alcohol i think we shall just have to get our 4loko on
tho i must stick up for US beers
i cannot stand the thickness of uk beers, nor the taste, and whilst im still not in love with the taste im a lot more accepting of the lites... an of course PBR.... anyone had that awesome beed Desperados?? has tequila in it and knocked me for 6 at xmas, busted my back my ribs and my arm and didnt even notice til the morning after
roll on coachellaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Blur, The Stone Roses, Japandroids, Modest Mouse, Tegan & Sara, Passion Pit, Metric, Youth Lagoon
The XX, Postal Service, Biffy Clyro, Sigur Ros, New Order, Two Door Cinema Club, Franz Ferdinand, Guards
Vampire Weekend, The Faint, Dinosaur Jr, Cloud Nothings, The Oh Sees
Wow, there really is a shit load coming over it seems. I banded with some shirtless fellow at Two Door Cinema Club, belting the lyrics from the wee back of the tent--good times. Unfortunately I don't camp, so I rarely get a chance to meet people. Noir=introvert. Sad face
Edit: I'm down for some brawlin beer pounding competitions!

We've been for the past 2 years, and not ran in to many fellow Brits. Like they said earlier in the thread A LOT of Aussies! The place is over ran with them!
And for the most part the accent is loved and commented on... or just totally misunderstood! But saying that we are from the Midlands!
Maybe if Im lucky I can meet some gay British people. They can hang out at my tent. If I cross my fingers and wish hard enough.
So, as the festival is approaching does anyone have any ideas for a meet up?
We are flying over from Manchester, UK and arrive on 14th April into LA. We are staying in the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area. Driving over to the festival on 19th April.
It would be great if someone wants to meet up before the festival in the LA area. We are going to see Miike Snow on Tuesday 17th and might check out Wild Beasts on Wednesday 18th.
Also we would really be up for meeting some people at the festival either on the Thursday night or Friday.
think we'll be in la around that time - think there's 6 of us coming out and friends there from london.
always willing to meet other brits.
will pm you some deets.
Sweet. Sounds good. Any more for any more?
As much as I like the Irish accent, you just don't have the sophistication an English accent can have.
American girls will be all "oh wow, you're like... so, Irish!" but then they won't have a clue what you're talking about.
i'm an expat also but usually a weekend in Orlando is enough to send me running back to the safety of my town and its 3 other Brit inhabitants!
i always look out for union jacks and st georges flags so i'll definitely be sure to say HIIIII if i see one
Team Ayrshire attending for the 4th year in a row
We come to Coachella to escape traditional UK festival weather and Ned behaviour
Come a long long, come a long long way
We fly Saturday! Yipppppeeee!
Coming with a group of 6, of which 4 are Brits & I'm the only guy...not as good as it sounds!
Really looking forward to first Coachella, I'm sure it's going to be very different from a UK festival.
Hope to meet lots of new people there, so come say hello
