April 18th is my 44th birthday - first timer and going solo - I can't wait!!!
I don't see myself retiring very soon, so we'll just stick it out with the animals in the campground... -
As for Lynn163 asking if it is worth it, I would say it depends. I think it is worth every penny. The tents are just part of the benefit. You have access to the polo grounds before the gates even open. This makes getting your t'shirt purchase easy. The tents include a buffet style breakfast and dinner. The food was surprisingly good and was different each day. If you had some things to snack on during the day, you could not even need to purchase food the whole weekend.
But what I like the best is the convenience of the whole thing. We would get up and get some breakfast and head over for some of the early bands. There is usually a period mid-afternoon where we would be able to take a break. A quick golf cart ride back to the tent area. Shower, change of clothes and head back. Probably only gone for 45 minutes. As the sun went down it started to get cold. Another quick golf cart trip back to pick up a sweat shirt, the right back. Gone only about 15 minutes, maybe 45 minutes if you decided to eat. If you can afford it you should try it, I don't think you would regret it.
Old people get hurt while attending Coachella.
Everyones a Photographer.
Is there a "mellow" place to camp? I'm arriving first thing Friday morning, and was planning on getting as close to the gates as I could. But now I guess that might not be the way to go if I actually want to get some sleep...
The Red Headed Groupie,
I think there will be a lot of older people there, especially with the stone roses playing, I think there will be loads of british and irish folks. I'm older myself but i'm pretty youthfiul and energetic and I usually get along much better with people younger than me than I do with people older. I'm looking forward to it all and hope that everyone around my tent are good people. As I have car camping if I really need sleep or to get away from noise i'll just go in the car and wear noise cancelling headphones!
I miss Australians wearing Daft Punk shirts at Coachella. =( AUS>UK
Just hang out in VIP with the old celebs and douche-bags trying to look hip and cool. But ya you will be fine, I remember when Roger Waters played a few years back there were a ton of people 40+
well I can't speak for festivals, but I can say that all the shows I go to , I see people that are well over 50, hell I went to see the Smashing Pumpkins and there was this old man who must've been like 68 completely bald and shriveled rockin' out, to the point he looked like he was having a seizure lmfao. Everyone around took a picture, video or gave him props , it was pretty hilarious to see such an old man in the crowd of people that were like 18~36. I'm expecting to see a fair amount of people in their 40's here.
