    At the Drive In is completely against moshing, they hate it, and they'll even stop a show if it happens.

    Thanks for bringing fucking rock'n'roll back to Coachella!

    Forgot about Arctic Monkeys but I didn't expect it from them for some reason. It's good to hear that the Hives had some since I'm really excited for them. How are Le Butcherettes? Never listened to them

    I vouch for this as well, the crowd was just PUMPED. The most I was tossed around, hit and jostled all weekend. It was amazing but I nearly had to leave as my girlfriend was a pinball in there. During the final song the moshing got insane.

    My buddy and I were moshing pretty obnoxiously during Refused. Got a few dirty looks. But about half way into the set people remembered: "oh yeah! This is fucking punk rock!" And from there was probably the best pitt of my life.

    Of what I consider "real" moshing, I'd say Refused is the only set I'd put up there. It was a seriously violent set, perfect really. Not the hardest I've ever been in, but up towards the top without fights breaking out. And by real moshing, I mean it made me fear for the safety of my glasses, face and ribs. Way better than the half-hearted moshing at OFF! last year. Lightning Bolt had a better crowd even.

    I saw ATDI, Madness, Black Lips, Flying Lotus (I wasn't in the middle; it may have been more violent there) and a lot of the other bands people have reported as a pit, but I can't see those being considered more than a dance pit, which isn't a bad thing. I'm glad Madness was a friendly set; The crowd was older (By that I mean the average age was considerably higher than the rest of Coachella) and very much enjoying the set like I was. Good times indeed.

    ATR had the lamest crowd ever, and if someone attempted to start a pit in the tiny crowd they would more than likely have been alone and scowled at. I would have expected them to be more impressive, but nothing happened.

    That video of Afrojack is pathetic... Bro pits at their best/worst.

    And again, Refused was EPIC. You weekend 2'ers are in for one hell of a show.

    Did anyone see the little Asian girl who kept jumping in and flailing? I think I coughed up a lung laughing at how hard she was raging.

    I was suprised to see such violent moshing at Zedd's Dead. More intense than ATDI, was up front, everyone was doing the body wave. jammed in the crowd just swaying back and forth

    I didn't see Zedd's Dead... sounds like fun though. I've heard good things about crowds at their shows.

    I saw what appeared to moshing at Black Lips and some mini-pits at the Hives for Tick Tick Boom. The groups at Madness were just doing that ska circly-dance kind of thing. There was no moshing at firehose (I was front and center and was only bumped by one dude behind me that didn't seem all there).

    Yo I don't care if you like punk rock, but anybody that can endorse randomly flailing your arms and kicking your legs with the intent of "expressing yourself" (i.e. hurting people) can fuck off. Thank god that didn't happen during At the Drive-In.

    I chose my words carefully to avoid ignorance like you on this thread. You obviously haven't experienced enough moshing, and concerts at all, if you think it's just flailing arms and kicking legs. The Aquabats set last year was the perfect example of how productive and fun moshing really can be. If you don't like it then you obviously aren't into the music enough.

    ATR wasn't very good? That's actually really disappointing.

    I dunno man. There's nothing wrong with moshing, but once it gets violent I just don't understand the fun that can be attained from that. One of my favorite bands is Converge, and seeing them two weeks ago was an amazing experience. The only downside was getting punched in the neck once and seeing a girl get drilled on her side. I listen to more than enough heavy music to know my shit, but seeing hardcore bands live is usually a struggle to avoid the one to five ass clowns in the middle of the dance floor spinning around like special ed kids with sparklers.

    The pit for FlyLo was directly in front of the stage, it was insane and I wish I stayed in it.

    Yes, yes and yes!! I was a fan from way back and the Pedro boys brought it. Mike was really into it, standing next to George most of the time, playing off each other. One of the highlights of any Coachella for me.

    Converge is great. Sorry for attacking because I do somewhat agree at hardcore shows, but some circle pits and slam dancing can definitely make a set more fun and energetic. Not so into the hardcore dancing myself, I wish hardcore shows could be more like punk shows at times. But I don't mind Refused being violent. I'm so excited to see them that the violence won't phase me as long as I'm having fun.

    After reading this thread, it looks like I'm probably going to be seeing you a lot OpenGatorade haha. Though it kinda sucks to hear there wasn't a crowd for Atari Teenage Riot. I haven't really heard much about their set, but I guess there weren't many people there.

    I saw this little chick shove a guy next to me, and we all just shot her a dirty look.

    I mean I'm all for moshing but fucking fIREHOSE, this is a band I've always wanted to see

    That was the weirdest part of the weekend. I said in another thread, I am all for mosh pits, but at Flying Lotus show? Thats almost as ridiculous as the moshpit that broke around me when I went to see The Pharcyde.
    G-funk acquired, thank you Coachella

    We'll make something happen during the set, and we'll just instantly know who each other are, and we'll be the ones that started it. ATR must be fucking crazy.
