    Default Stage Dives @Coachella

    So this is my first Coachella and I've been watching videos non-stop of live performances from the previous years to better prepare myself for what it's truly like. As I'm watching these I have the urge to make a really snazzy one for 2012 so we can relive (or I can relive) all the good times. I'm going to use a GoPro cam, a Flip and my HD camera so I can get different angles on everything. I also began thinking how insanely cool it would be to do a stage dive with the GoPro on my head. Do they allow stage dives @Coachella? I've never done one and would love for my first to be at Refused with the GoPro.

    It would be so cool to make a bands performance about you. Some might call it stealing the spotlight, but don't listen to the haters. You paid the price of admission. You deserve to be seen. You are special and don't you ever forget it.

    Great idea, ruin everybody elses time by kicking them in the forehead so you can make a video that nobody is going to watch.

    I hope you try this and end up like Christopher Reeve.

    It's a punk set. Jeezuz.
    My guess is you wont be able to get up to their stage anyways but there's always crowd surfing and there will plenty of that going on during Refused.

    It would be extremely difficult to get on any of the stages at Coachella. They have the barriers pretty far away from the stages, filled with a lot of security to make way for photo pits.

    You could do a real sick stage dive during Bon Ivers set on the main stage.

    Two of my friends got really drunk last year before Arcade Fire and one of them tried to crowdsurf. One crouched down, then the other ran and jumped off of his back. Completely ate shit and probably ruined a few people's nights. This was during the intro to Wake Up.

    duct tapping to your thigh is the best way to sneak your video cam cellphone device.

    i take it you dont go to many punk shows. that's cool, you don't have to be at Refused's set. maybe we should just all stand there silently and do golf claps after every song.

    I'll admit the GoPro is awesome but do you really wanna be that guy with the camera mounted on your dome?

    Swedish House Mafia is actually bringing a stage diving board for observers to utilize during their set. First it was the addition of air horns, then they brought in the fake smoke/fog and now they thought they'd amp it up a bit and bring the board. Every time someone jumps off of it, fireworks are shot into the sky.
