    Weekend Two will be my fifteenth.
    I was freshly divorced and kinda sad in 2001 when I decided to drive out to see what this was.
    When St. Germain took the Outdoor Stage that afternoon I got happy and it hasn't stopped.

    !5th for me. Have gone every year. My wish is to make it to the Safari tent/all access pass some time. If I won the lottery I would buy Safari first!

    this will be my 11th year. Id love to keep going yet the age gap is starting to get to me. I'm not that old but i feel THAT old next to the pink unicorn kid next to me. I wish I could afford Safari one year, that would be nice.

    This is my eighth year - but that doesn't include double weekends. I recommend checking out acts you've never heard of - there are some real jewels in there. I also recommend going both weekends.

    I missed Coachella 1999. Didn't even hear about it. I went in 2001 to see the Roots and Paul Oakenfold, but ended up seeing a whole lot more that day. Every year the same thing happens and my musical tastes expand further. This will be my 14th consecutive year. Been going both weekends since this became possible. The festival has changed much over the years but I still love it. I'm always exposed to new music and stuff I've loved for years. Every single weekend was a beautiful experience whether I camped, stayed in a hotel, or rented a house. It does not get old.

    Fun reading the stories of people who have been to more than 10 - 2014 will be my 9th. Main things that our group always tries to do is having shade in the campsite so you don't get blasted by the sun while waiting for the Coachella gates to open. Our group still camps, seemingly for the convenience it seems like. I probably overplan the lineup review - I preferably listen to about 20 minutes of each band to get a feel for them. I then print out the schedule for each day and make notes on it after every band that I see. I always carry around a pen to avoid using my phone too much so it stayed powered.

    Something that I brought last year for the first time is a mophie portable cell phone battery - to charge my cell phone in the campsite. Another random thing I liked last year is if you talk to an information booth inside Coachella they can give you a "Coachella camping" book - in case you didn't get one when you were driving in upon camping. I like going through the book after Coachella is over - great interviews and photos as well.

    Last year was my favorite year of Coachella ever (and 2013 Sunday was my favorite single day of Coachella ever) - just seems like the lineup keeps getting better and better in terms of quality and quantity. You really need to try hard not to have a good time. This year looks loaded as well. Already through reviewing Friday, lot of good bands that day.

    With it being 2 weekends now, why does going both weekends suddenly account for more times you attended? 12 years for me. If you wanted to get technical, 14, and it would be 16 after this year. ( which sounds like a load of shit )

    It accounts for how many weekends you have attended Coachella, not how many years attended.

    This will be numero #15 for me. I was 25 years young when i first stepped on that polo field in 1999. aw the moments and the memories ... I've learned to take in those moment more and less video and picture taking during sets. There are so many better quality videos on youtube now and have graduated from spicy Pie to Baohaus. i hope they bring that baohouse back. See you at weekend 1 bitches!

    2014 will be my 12th. Missed 1999, 2002, and 2003. All due to problems with my bitches. Any way, camping solo this year weekend #2. Been camping/car camping since 2009. Was cool to camp with a group, but should be interesting to camp solo this year. Looking forward to spending Easter at Coachella...I wonder how many bunny ears, bunny costumes I'll see on Sunday???

    04-10, 13, so this year will be number 9. Ten if you count the Jamaica cruise.

    This my tenth in a row and every year I have camped which I still love to do.I plan to go every year as I feel like it helped me develop a better taste in music,new friends, brought me to check this message board , and bunch of other things.Its amazing that in 2005 I had the flyer in my clipboard next to my notepad while taking down orders at Olive garden and nobody knew what Coachella was or most of the bands.

    Was so stoked to have a pro catch a moment with my son and I last year, def. my favorite day out of my 10 years, my friend setting my wife and kids up with passes so they could spend Sunday with me on the hallowed grounds. He was making faces in my sunglasses and cracking himself up.



    Coolest kid there by far in 2013, along with his big sis.


    Of course there gotta be haters, too. Fuck MTV. How dare a family enjoy live music together!

    11th year in a row this year and I have never camped. Always stay at Indian Palms. No clue why we never didn't before last year but renting bikes was the most brilliant thing we have done. Take maybe 10 minutes to ride and get to the gate. Legs aren't tired, not sweating, and getting home was a blast. Still need to check out the campgrounds. Any suggestions for what to do in campgrounds?

    This will be the 10th anniversary of my coachella attendance, but took some years off here and there. Likely taking another extended break after this year as well. It's been really interesting watching this festival grow over the years..

    I visited the campgrounds for the first time in my 10 years last year around 2am Saturday night with Dani, Mike ivankay, and several others. It was pretty insane. The dome, that double decker bus, the area was going off. And lo and behold who did we see? The amazing Tucker Gumber. Didn't make it anywhere else , so not sure if there were other communal areas or if the rest was just campgrounds.

    This will be my 10th Coachella as well... it will be #9 for my wife... I've never camped, but always stay in some kind of motel/hotel in the Palm Springs area... This is looking to be one of the weaker lineups for me, but I'm going to make the most of it. Being there is just an experience in itself.

    I've been thinking of getting some kind of tattoo to commemorate the 10th year, but haven't decided on anything I'd permanently want on my body...

    This will be my 10th consecutive year going, and Coachella's #12 and #13 for me in total (haven't missed one (including the two weekend deals) since I started going in 2005).

    While I've been going since 1999, I skipped a bunch in the middle so this will be 9th time attending for me.

    I am truly happy that you got to see St. Germain, but it hurts so much that I never got to see them.

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
