Thread: What time do you make it into the fest?

    Default What time do you make it into the fest?

    Fucked up last one....

  2. #2

    Default Re: What time do you make it into the fest?

    Usually sometime between the first two options. If there is someone I want to see playing first thing then I try to get there in time for opening but I'm bad at judging traffic so I usually fuck it up.

    Car camping makes it so much easier to get in there earlier. I always tend to go in early the first day to scope out the art. Next couple of days it really depends on our mood and who's playing.

    I really can't understand people who only go in at night to check out headliners though

    If the choices were complete, I'd select sometime between the first two options as well.

    Yeah. Wanted to make it more complete allowing for multiple answers taking into account camping vs driving to the fest, but I'm at work and they only allow 5minutes to set the poll up apparently. Curious... do you drive in or camp?

    Usually around noon (W1), I like to catch the early sets and have time to mill about freely before the place gets too crowded. I'm usually moving a little slower W2 so probably more like 1.
    2005, 2007, 2011, 2012 W1, 2012 W2, 2013 W1, 2013 W2, 2014 W1, 2014 W2 and SOON 2015 W1 & 2015 W2!!

    Between 11 and Noon the gates aren't terribly oppressive.

    Some of my favorite Coachella sets over the last 5 years have happened before 3 o'clock.

    I like how everyone's response, including mine, isn't listed

    But yeah, 12:00 is the perfect time to get there

    Noon on Fridays because people have no idea what the hell they're doing on that first day, including the people directing traffic.

    Closer to 2 on Sat and Sun unless there's an early act I'm hell-bent on catching.

    I like to go depending on how hot it is. If it's too hot I usually get stuck in the campsite for fear that it'll get hotter once I move.

    Get some SPF 100 and you're good to go!
    This the only reason I could really understand as to why someone would go in late afternoon. But still... so many acts will be missed! I could never do that.

    I'm hella tan, i'm not worried about getting sunburnt cause I don't really burn, I just glow haha. But in 2012 it was just sooo hot i was glued to the grass for hours just enjoying the misters in our campsite I didn't care if I missed anybody. Stupid I know, but it was 100+ degrees!!

    I try to arrive earlier, but the hotel shuttles don't allow one to get to the drop off point, walk to the grounds, and get through security before 1:30ish. Here's hoping The Preatures don't play until 2.

    Since I couldn't answer noon, I said 11:00.

    Depends. Sometimes it's a sad soft six, while others it's a happy hard 12.

    Far be it from me to tell others how to spend (waste) their money, but paying $350 / $375 to JUST see the headliners is pretty fucking stupid. Way too much money to see three acts you can likely see somewhere else for a lot cheaper.

    Well, a lot of people go to Coachella just to rage so it kind of makes sense.

    I go whenever there is someone I want to see. It's usually no later than 3 ish. Sometimes I find that I spend a lot of time in the parking lot getting drunk meeting random people. While this is fun, I can be easily distracted and miss the gig I'm trying to see.

    I usually tell myself I'm going to save my energy and wait until the late afternoon/early evening when the first band I really want to see is playing. Then I get overexcited and bored of waiting, and I'm there by noon milling around in the blazing heat.

    Sure, but can't you "rage" at other concerts in your city, and for a ton less money?
