    - Girls sitting on their boyfriend's shoulders (or kids on their parents shoulders) for the majority of a set. For the odd song or two, fine... have your moment, but not for the whole damn performance.

    - People who do nothing but talk during a performance. Especially when they turn around not even looking towards the stage.

    - People who stick an iPhone in the air to shoot video but do it terribly. (ie. not turning the phone horizontal or not keeping their hand still)



    I'm someone who sneaks in a camcorder and audio recording gear in every year so I tend to have it sticking up in the air to record a lot of video... for that I apologize to those who find that annoying, but I only do it so everyone can see/re-live the performances whenever they want on YouTube with quality that's at the very least watchable/listenable.

    Security made the girls get down during the Tallest Man on Earth. Not sure if they did it for other sets.

    Well dancing by most people's standards is bobbing up and down, nodding head, hands up in air. Big whoop. I don't care how they want to spend their time, as long as they aren't obnoxious.

    Everyone enjoys music in their own way, and that's cool with me as long as it doesn't detract from others' experiences. Bobbing up and down, foot-tapping, head-nodding, swaying, whatever, are all fine with me.

    But I admit that I can't help but get a little bummed out if the people I am with are totally motionless and frowny.

    I hate beach balls when I'm trying to watch a set and get down. Go to the fucking beach and do that shit. I really hate inflatable palm trees blocking the Shpongle projections.

    Lit Cigarette butts and the fucking sea of trash that appears after the later sets. For a festival that caters to the younger and supposedly more liberal and ecofriendly crowd it seems like the average attendee is a fucking slob.

    A fatty who shoves his sweaty shirtless ass to the middle of the crowd mid-set and squeezes into the 1 foot space in front of me and stops.

    Pet Peeves:

    - Short people that tap on the shoulder because I'm 6'6" and they "Can't see" Tough. It's not my fault being the biggest and the strongest.
    - People smoking cigarettes in the crowd.
    - People who talk during a set because they either don't care or are waiting on the next band they have to ruin for the rest.
    - Ugly/Fat girls asking to get up on my shoulders so they can "Find their friend" or something like that. Only skinny hot girls allowed on my shoulders.
    With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.

    Whistles. Definitely the whistles.
    People asking for drugs.
    I usually don't really mind people squeezing past me as long as they keep moving and are at least somewhat polite about it.

    Strange, I don't recall ever hearing or seeing people with whistles at Coachella. Hmmm.

    I'm sure now it will be quite noticeable.
