    Default Is it really worth attending this year's Coachella?

    Hello everyone!
    I finally have enough money to attend Coachella (thank you finanacial aid)! But, I haven't heard of many of the bands only the really big ones and I'm buying two tickets. Should we just go for the experience?
    Is it easy to make friends at Coachella? Excuse me, if I sound stupid.

    If you are lucky enough to get tickets when they go on sale-yes, definitely, you should go, and know what a great opportunity it is to be there.

    i say go, i've tried to get my friends to go but they're simply not interested. if you can get tickets then go. the experience itself is very unique, like a music lover's Disneyland. if you're not obsessed with music though i guess i'd say don't go.

    Hey dummy. It's stupid to use your government-issued financial aid to go to a music festival. If you can't afford to pay for it out of your own pocket, don't go.

    If you have to ask you should find something else to spend your money on...Coachella isn't for people who don't know shit about fuck.

    I've used my financial aid money three years in a row. I haven't regretted it for a moment. Definitely go. As far as making friends goes, I don't really know because I'm always running from stage to stage trying to see all the awesome music. But people are typically pretty friendly.

    So I guess that means you're not going?

    Hey man, do you like live music? Even if you don't know all the bands, are you open to experiencing new types of music? I've promoted the experience to several people, only to realize that while the experience is incredible, it is still wedded pretty heavily to whether you love concerts or not. If you're just medium on live music, or music in general, I would do something else. It is 10+ hours of straight concerts.

    travelfan's got it. 10 straight hours three days in a row.

    awilliams1109 I suggest you do some research on the bands you've never heard of. There are plenty of threads on this message board to edumacate you. If you get excited, great, see you there. If you're still sort of meh, then you can always sell your tickets (at face value, of course).

    There's no reason to be a bunch of dick fucks. All I did was ask a simple question.

    Simple answer, yes go. I paid for coachella with my financial aid the first year I went. Just make sure you can budget to make coachella work so you aren't starving or can't afford books. Even if you don't know a lot of bands, start researching and find bands that sound appealing to you. You'll also have a great time just wandering.

    You're getting shit because of your thread title and apparently all college kids are bro douche ragers that like nothing but cheese house.

    If this thread upsets you, you sure as hell don't want to set foot on the polo grounds.
