Thread: weekend 1 vs. weekend 2, why the battle?

  1. #1

    Question weekend 1 vs. weekend 2, why the battle?

    I went weekend 2 last year and had a really fun time, and I'm planning on that again this year.

    I just don't get why there is soooooo much hype around weekend 1. Like, why does everyone and their mother want to go WE 1? What's with the hype?

    Would you like to open your Christmas presents on Christmas or wait one week and watch all the other kids open theirs first?

    They're the same shit, W1 has streaming, so you can check out which performances to see or skip the week after.

    I'd like to let other kids open the boxes first and see what's inside.
    Because I can't have all the boxes.

    obviously the first time is always going to be more exciting. Im weekend two this year and am trying my best to go in blind. Remember when you were a kid and the world was amazing? Remember when you were an adult and you didnt give a shit because youd seen it before?

    Well. I'm for W1 because I don't like opening my Christmas gifts one week late. But W2 would be cool for pot smokers because of 420 I guess? I know a lot of semester based colleges in Southern California finish Midterms right before W2 so W2 will more likely have tons of Southern Cali college girls.
    I'd do suprefan.

    the grass is worse, i hear. how much so, i have no idea. and its not going to ruin my time. roo11 was a dustbowl, so any grass is a plus for me.

    I fail to see the slightest difference in picking 1 over the other, except that I bought my Weekend 2 tickets in about 30 seconds while people online were bitching about waiting hours to get Weekend 1 tickets and winding up with nothing.

    For me if there's some major reunion(s), it's more fun to be there the first weekend esp. if it really is their first show in quite some time.

    W2 because in my experience artists put the most energy in the last night/show at a particular venue.

    W1 is brand new, you get to see all the surprises. Another thing: In the camp grounds think of all the people that pee in the grass when they dont want to run to the portapottys. Weekend 2 youre laying in that grass.

    You do know that field we camp on is a polo field right? Meaning horses regularly shit and piss on that same grass year round......

    I think that the main reason people "battle" over this is because they're looking for something to do while waiting for the festival to actually happen. Ultimately it hardly matters. Weekend 1, Weekend 2, both will be great. But if you had to chose one, of course Weekend 1 is better -- it will likely have slightly cooler weather, pristine grass, and it's the first so nothing is spoiled. But like I said, it hardly matters.

    It mattered last year. Better weather, better setlists from a few headliners and subheadliners, crowds in a better mood, etc.

    But yes, both were and will be great. Now and forever.

    While I get that, it is also painful watching weekend two having a blast when Coachella is over for me..

    I was weekend 1 last year and am going weekend 2 this year, I'm going to enjoy sunday night being the end of the end of Coachella for another year

    Not bad but worse... I can tell you from your pic the grass just looks WAY greener and softer weekend 1. Not that its a big deal, but I for one, like to lay down in the grass and catch some sets during the day and doing that is soooo much better when the grass isn't so trampled on and dried out.

    im probably just justifying not having gotten in on W1, but i agree...that feeling at the end...when its all over... so precious but sad too. i think i'd feel weird if i knew it was going to start over the next weekend. then again, id probably be a giddy, smug piece of shit about being there first. i dunno. doesnt bother me.


    set wise, could go either way. "better" setlists are subjective, for the most part. and who its not like W1 wears out the artists. they have a week in between, and i assure they are having a blast. they might even get some ideas for W2 based on W1.

    It's mostly driven by a primitive macho deflowering complex.
    I went W1 last year, had a blast.
    Will go W2 this year, and I'll have a blast.

    Plus, 4/20. No biggie tho.

    They're the same fucking thing. Anyone who says otherwise is just being stupid. I went to both last year (and am doing so again this year), so I should know.

    I go weekend 1 so it can be more of a surprise of whose gonna be there (surprise acts) and what cool art/tents are available. It's bad enough I go on the forums and read all the rumors and leaks but if I were going weekend 2, I just would be anticipating and expecting certain things.
