    If it could at least stay under 100 for weekend 1, that would be nice. The 107 Saturday during 2012 really sucked. DJ computers everywhere dying.

    Ladies and Gents - the wind last night here was unreal. It made last years 'sand storm' look like a light breeze. Wind this year has been the strongest it's ever been. The wind was so strong it pushed over full size garbage cans (like these pictured) in our neighborhood and was blowing them around like they were tin cans.

    Bring extra stakes and rope. Put your stuff inside your tent before you leave in the evening and be careful...as if it gets as bad as it was last night there won't be a single shade structure that'll hold up to it...and they'll be flying everywhere. When those things land those poles are gonna hurt if they hit ya.

    I've lived here for 16+ years and have never seen the winds go like they are now. It may be gone by the time the fest starts, but if not be ready.

    Having lived there for 16+ years, have you ever experienced a weather system to linger for 9 days?

    the santa ana winds hit the valley the first two weeks of april every year. i appreciate your effort though.

    what boggles my mind is that baily has nver seen a trash can knocked over by the wind before.

    well said!!!

    I'd go so far as to ask my neighbors to do the same thing so I don't end up with a shade pole in my head in the middle of the night...because no tent is gonna stop it.

    If you've ever seen a shade structure taken by the wind...it's a site...a damn scary site as anyone in the path is in serious danger.



    Not F'n around ...if the wind is like it's been...there'll be a lot more photos like these.

    Not 96 gallon containers that were full of trash...no never. That's a lot of weight...like I said I've seen the winds out here for 16+ years and it's never hit this strong.

    If winds can toss a street full of 96 gallon trash cans that were full - your tents, items outside, shade structures etc don't stand a chance without being staked down.

    hopefully that happens. upper 90s is overly hot. mid 80s would be amazing. when the sun is out, it will feel like 90...

    winds are supposed to die down wednesday night...so we'll see what happens after that.

    Yep, happens every year between the months of June- August, sometimes even September... it's called "Fucking Hot."

    I actually wasn't mocking Baily, this time. I was genuinely wondering if the fact that it's windy 9 days before the fest portends anything at all.

    I didn't think that last night's winds were any worse than the sandstorm last year, but then, I wasn't struck inside of a teepee in the middle of a polo field. Pretty sure the 2 storms that hit the coast yesterday/ last night had something to do with the added blow to the already yearly Santa Anas we get right before the fest.

    It does. It means that, for the next 9 days the board will be all a flurry with assumptions and predictions that will rival the set times predictions. You'll see numerous accuweather charts and graphs popping up, and the sales of tent stakes suddenly skyrocketing across the country. Being a glass half full kind of gal, I like to think of this pre-fest catastrophic blowing of wind to be a final cleansing of any loose and dry horsey poop left on the fields after polo season. Well, that and the fact that if it's windy while they're setting up those tents, you can bet they'll be re-enforcing the structures accordingly.

    I feel like the past three years we've been freaking out about the wind beforehand, and last year's third night was the only time I've really ever seen it get uncomfortably bad. The other times the wind has just caused cool shit like the trash tornado. Still, if it has the potential to be worse than last year...I'll bring a bandana or something to wrap around my nose and mouth and because I was coughing up dirt for like a week after last year.

    And of course we had Rainchella, but it doesn't seem like that is in the forecast again.

    Rainchella was awesome, it was like having a European music festival right here in SoCal!

    Heat's not too hard to deal with though for those of us who are used to it so either way.

    Shit you're right. I almost forgot about the posts last year showing how windy it was during set up thew week before the festival. So much for March being "Out like a lamb." The Santa Ana winds are no joke. I've been watching the wind advisory on accuweather for Indio and cringing. I'd rather have 100+ heat any day.

    Weekend 1 throws curveballs. Weekend 2 simply throws the heat like Coachella is known for.

    The week of Coachella is exactly like homersexual states 'a curve ball.' It could be hot as fuck one day and nice the next then windy the next. I've seen fest days where it's been windy every night and we've seen it rain. The best thing I can tell anyone coming to the fest is be prepared for the worst and hope for the best. I plan for super hot during the day and cold and windy at night. We could have the worst weather on earth here Thursday the day before the fest then the best the next day....you never know...but as I stated the wind right now is the worst it's ever been.
