    Default 2nd weekend: weather better than 1st

    So it's supposed to be 89F Friday, and 92F Saturday and Sunday. Last year, we went the 2nd weekend and of course the the weather (or lack thereof) was way better than the first weekend. I felt from the moment we bought the tix last yr that the chances were for warmer weather the closer you get to May.

    I'm not going this year but if I was I would have bought tix for the 2nd weekend. So everybody wants to go the 1st weekend but the 2nd is more likely to be warmer and less crowded.

    Wish Coachella was held late April/early May like it used to be.

    Less people willing to buy scalped tickets for Weekend Two I'd imagine and people who can't go finding it hard to sell their ticket as east as Weekend One.

    Hot as fuck is what Coachella is all about. That's what it should be.

    Cold and windy sucks. Last year 2nd weekend was perfect (and yes, Saturday was hot as fuck by 9:00 a.m), and things didn't get fucked up until Monday morning when the campground was emptying out and Coachella was windy and miserable.

    i still can't believe people think that 5-7 days later in the desert always = way more hot. yes as we approach summer it tends to get warmer, but that doesnt mean much when you're talking a few days.

    Yeah, except for the insane sand/dust towards the end of Sunday, this weather was perfect. Warm during the day, but not punishing with the breezes and shade, plenty cool at night. Extremely comfortable at almost all times. I have no idea why people would want anything different.

    I am beginning to think this might be true. First cold/windy/rainy, now epic sandstorm. I will give W1 one more chance, but if next year's weather sucks too, I'm switching to W2 after that.
    Let's go on a livin' spree!

    Wasn't it 107 during weekend 2 last year? Sounds like a lesser of two evils kinda situation...with both evils being equal.

    i loved the weather this weekend, it was hot enough for the beer to be refreshing in the morning/daytime. and just right at night, i was barefoot and in shorts at camp and didn't get cold.. yes sunday night sucked with the sandstorm.. but i was too tired to notice... i just lowered my canopy and partied in the tent... problem solved..

    The weather for weekend 1 was great. Anything was better than last year. But Friday and Saturday were perfect. Not sweltering during the day and comfortable at night. Sunday didn't get annoying until around 5pm. Most of the day was beautiful. Yes the sand and wind sucked, but it still was great weather.
