    Red face Vegas after Weekend 1??

    Is anyone else going onto Las Vegas after weekend 1??

    There is a large group of us from the UK going to Weekend 1 and then recovering for a few days in a Villa in Palm Springs then heading over to Vegas on the Wednesday for 5 days.

    I'm going from Vegas -> Coachella weekend 1. There is a conference I'm attending that ends wednesday at 3:00 PM so I'm driving straight to Indio after that.

    No you're not. Morissey cancelled the tour due to health issues like last week.

    Leisurely drive to Vegas on the 15th.

    Have not seen Beatles "Love" yet?

    Is the hype to be believed?

    Me and a pal coming across from the UK as well and we're going to LA on the Monday after weekend one for three days to visit his family then onto Vegas on the Thursday for 4 nights. We're staying two nights at Bellagio then two nights at Caesar's Palace.

    What's your plans?

    Hey Sean,

    We have a villa for a few days after w/e 1 then leisurely drive up to Vegas on the Wednesday. 2 nights in the Venetian and then 2 in the Wynn. Should be fun!

    Test driving my car to Vegas between now and weekend 1. It's time to make sure the car is Coachella-ready.

    No worries, I've been keeping my eye on that show. I live in Vegas and was looking forward to going but oh well.

    If you're a Beatles fan it's quite great. If you're not a fan of the Beatles at all then it's okay. If you've seen any other Cirque's they're all pretty different.

    IMO Zumanity > O > Beatles (I'm a fan) > Ka > Mystere

    This is just the order I liked them in, not saying any of these is bad at all. Except for Believe, that one SUCKS (Chris Angel). There's the new one that replaced Viva Elvis, but I haven't seen that one yet.

    Absinthe is kinda cool over at Ceasars for a cheap Side-show type mockery of Cirque du Soleil

    The "Love" show is amazing. If you're a Beatles fan you're in for a treat

    What sort of time you thinking of travelling from Indio to Vegas? I'm doing the same but wanting to avoid as much queues out as possible on Monday morning?

    Can people tell me if there is the usual major queues to get out the festival on Monday morning or do a lot of people leave Sunday night/early hours of Monday making it not much difference?

    Monday morning is a ghost town. If you can grab at least three hours of sleep after the last show, you should be good to pack up and drive right out when you get up.

    Absinthe is awesome - well worth a watch if you want a cirque like showcase without the pomp and pretence. It's a bit more humorous and crude.

    oh right, okay. is there anything that goes on after for example RHCP who I probably will see finishes?

    and after reading the lockdown and 10pm-2am not moving times, i'm presuming that to drive off and leave Sunday night/Monday early, I'd have to wait until 2am to drive out anyway?

    Don't over-sell it. It's just a little Burlesque side-show. It makes fun of Cirque. It's nice for the 'cheap' price. But it's nowhere near the production value of the worst Cirque show.

    4 hours depending on traffic. It hasn't been that bad getting out of there the years I have been.

    As someone who drives from Coachella to Vegas every year.... 5 hours, provided you are driving the legal limit and don't stop in Baker for a Gyro and some Alien Jerky.

    Yes thats right, Alien Jerky! You'll see the billboards. Stoping at the Mad Greek for a gyro and strawberry shake is a must tho so just go ahead and pen it into the schedule.
