    I was originally gonna get to the main after Gallagher's set cause I want to see Andrew Bird, but after seeing a few St. Vincent songs I'm rethinking that......

    Before The Shins. Seriously. I went to main stage to see The Shins and Bon Iver and made the mistake of getting way too close to the front. It was hell to get out of there. Almost got trampled by the all the people rushing forward for Radiohead.

    My friend texted me saying about half of coachella was there for radiohead. Clearly exaggerated, but honestly I don't think by that far off. I'll be there about 30 minutes early

    I was in the front, but I stood there for 14 hours.

    I saw all of Flying Lotus then ran over to the main stage, pushed my way to get in front of the first barrier during Bon Iver, then ended up almost front and center for Radiohead. I'm scrawny and nimble as hell though, but it can be done without camping out.

    I got there for Bon Iver and got just right front of the soundboard which was totally cool.

    I don't get the whole "camping out" in the main stage thing, that's just fucking ridiculous (and btw, Radiohead was my #2 must see act for the weekend).

    I showed up as the Shins were starting, had a great spot about 10 rows from the stage. The downside is that you will be packed like sardines in a crushed tin box and will have to stand like that for a while. And I personally find Bon Iver a bit sleepy.

    Your Coachella doesn't sound like fun at all

    I ended up watching all of Bon Iver to get a good spot for Radiohead. I got up towards the front of the sound mixer without too much of a problem. You don't have to wait for 14 hours unless you want to be on the rail.
