    I went weekend 1, it was a well-rounded weekend, weather-wise.

    Rainchella was interesting, but everyone complaining about the hot weather - haven't you been to Coachella before? Believe it hit 106+ a few years back. The colder weather was nice in the day, but the nights were pretty cold, first time I brought a sweatshirt in to Coachella.

    Doesn't seem like there was too many differences, with the exception of a/lack of guest appearance for an artist. The set times looked pretty much the same with some minor adjustments to weekend 2, probably giving themselves more set up times and accommodating "music biz" schedules.

    Just means I gotta buy tickets for both weekends next year and see how the weather is a few weeks before deciding which weekend to go. Weekend 2 seems to have less kinks compared to weekend 1, but any opening night for any show/event is always going to have a higher chance of fail compared to the 2nd/3rd showing.

    What can I say, I have a severe case of grass-is-greener syndrome. In life and with Coachella. I'm doing both weekends to remedy this problem next year.

    And people complained and complained then, too. We've had hot festivals before - was 2004 the hottest? - but that doesn't make the experience any easier. It wasn't that bad last year and since I was camping I still spent a good deal of time in the sponsors air conditioned tents.

    Sia performed with David Guetta instead of Usher.

    Same special guests for Dr. Dre & Snoop.

    Did Macy Grey guest for AWOL on weekend two also? That was a nice surprise for weekend one.

    Due to work and other issues, I changed to one weekend rather than both in mid-March. Save for not having webcast on weekend two and missing some of the art due to weather (understandable), I am content with the weekend one decision. My friend was disappointed in some of the badge registration stuff not being readily available, but that didn't impact me.

    I've been to hotchellas before, coldchella Sunday was the best, and the grass literally was greener for weekend one. =) Sorry Stagecoach, but do not fret your wandering beers will help with the dust!

    If you had a laptop in your band on week 2 you set was delayed 10-20 minutes.. Dragonette, Big Pink, Manchester Orchestra all had laptops die due to the heat. DRagonette lost almost 20 minutes of their set trying to fix things.

    The Dear Hunter wasn't delayed, but suddenly an ad that sounded like something from Pandora or youtube started playing on dude's laptop. A good 20-30 seconds too, right on top of the middle of a song very audible. Probably on some hidden window he didn't realize was still open. Pretty fucking funny watching him go into scramble/shit pants mode with the other band members just looking over all pissed.

    I watched the webcast of weekend 1 and went weekend 2. I thought most of the performances were much better weekend 2. Yeah it was hot, but after a few years of attending you get used to the heat. The only really bad day weather-wise, was Saturday.

    The performances were probably better because you were therr, in the flesh. Concerts are always better in person vs via webcast.

    Sometimes true, but the sound was so off for a lot of w1 recording positions I think this case may be an exception

    For most of the performances I saw weekend one the sound was great. I think Black Angels was the only case of bad sound that I noticed all weekend and I didn't even notice that until I saw them later in the week at a venue and realized how much better they sounded

    I chose Sloppy Seconds Coachella because I wanted to get some tips from the weekend 1 folks on acts to see (or miss) or essential camping items not to forget. I'm glad I did.

    It was also cool to be able to watch the webcast from Weekend 1 to get all pumped up for the following weekend. The only major differences were ones that people already mentioned. Kimbra not being there for Gotye's set was a little disappointing, but it felt awesome for the audience to do the singing to her part instead, so there was a bright side.

    Too bad the stupid sound guys couldn't get her mic right and you couldn't hear her at all.

    I mean, she's wonderful to look at too, but let's hear those pipes.

    I was sort of sad they didn't play Identikit W2, but Kid A is a decent trade-off.

    While 'You and Whose Army' isn't a favorite of mine, the presentation of it was incredible, with Thom's face split up amongst the moving screens, looking as creepy and mesmerizing as I've ever seen.

    By Sunday on Weekend 2 the grass had pretty much had it, especially in the Sahara (hard to spot any green left).

    Mainstage and Outdoor seems like they had sign-language interpreters pretty much for every act Weekend 1, but I never noticed them Weekend 2 (I went to fewer shows over there, though, and never up close).

    Of all the acts I saw twice, only Pulp changed up their set list remarkably between 1 & 2.

    Weekend 2 got Donald Glaude making the party bounce in the H-Dome, but EC Twins and DJ Dan did the same Weekend 1.

    It seems like the glowruptions were more numerous and better organized weekend 1 (especially at Justice), but I saw a lot more sparkler groups weekend 2.

    I noticed more fence-jumpers and gate-crashers weekend 2, and noticed more people inside with no wristbands.

    No T-Rex at all weekend 1, and the flower only showed up Sunday; weekend 2 had both the whole time. I never spotted the black tubes at all, but I wasn't really looking.

    Am I the only person who way underpacked for Weekend 1 and was cold as fuck the whole time? I would have MUCH preferred the heat of Weekend 2.
