I was sleeping in the back of my truck and was woken up by spotlights and helicopter noise. I was about to jump up and start running, but then I realized they would not call the ghetto bird for someone sleeping in a truck. Put earplugs back in and slept soundly. What even happened with the "riot"? I have only heard random bits and pieces, but never got the full scoop on what the hell even went down.
This scares the shit out of me. I'm keeping a wolverine in my tent.
I was there, and it was the lamest shit in the world. I was tripping balls, when this line of at least 20-30 cop cars comes rolling up, lights flashing...surrounds the campgrounds. Helicopter over head telling everyone to go back to their tents...My buddy and i walked over, and it was a fucking DRUM CIRCLE with a bunch of Aussies and BRitts, and everyone was chill as fuck. The cops lined up on the back fence, and once they realized there was not RIOT they all left ashamed. It was fucking hilarious, and the drum circle never stopped.
Freaked me out for a quick minute though...
Recent studies at Yale have shown that being an asshole is detrimental to one's health. Professor Sweetlove, a Psychology professor, came on record as saying:
"Assholes and local desert rats tend to live shorter lives and have less consensual sexual relations than non assholes. It could be due to lower testoserone levels or a chemical imbalance in the brain but some people are just wired to be.... well.... assholes"
Full story can be found here. AP
I was too tired/drunk to partake in the drum circle. I still, to this day, wish I had just revived myself and kept drinking.
I heard some righteous dude took it upon himself to be the ONLY guy to get tazed by the police after he by himself ran at the police
there was this one guy going around the camp with a tape recorder. He had a conversation with me and my friends and followed us around a lot. Really creeped me out. I think he might have been a little "special" but I also had a sneaking suspicion he was just a clever under cover cop in disguise.

Im tired as hell just watching his shadow through the tent. then he goes to the camp next to ours when he finally realizes he is at the wrong one but instead of opening the zipper to his he is backwards and opens the zipper for the window on our tent. then falls over like three more times until he finally makes it to bed hahahaha was pretty weird but when i woke up i could not stop laughing over it
last year my friend decided to make thursday night her all night party...she was still going strong at about 2-3am when the rest of us started to go to sleep. we woke up the next morning to a loud crash* a few tents down from our site, followed by a dude's voice saying "What the F*CK!!" and our (by this point very out of it friend) just saying "it's Coachella, chill out!" she was down for the count by 10am, and almost every site around us talked about her for the rest of the weekend. we still make fun of her for it.
*whoever's tent she fell into, i'm sorry.
IN 04, my friend and I let a guy who was volunteering at a political action booth sleep in our tent. He offered us some Acid in return, but we didn't take him up. When we got back later that night, he had eaten half of our waterlogged chicken. It was hilarious.
he/she is going to be one lucky motherfucker im taking an air matress
I woke up to a dude rolling around kicking and scratching around like a badger outside of our tent. He was yelling something and it was really funny. I opened the flap of our tent and asked "what the fuck?" He looked in my direction and made some funny noises like "bla boo ba" and sort of yipping noises. I just went back to sleep and our camp area was only a little messed up when we woke up.
In 2007 some guy was trying to crawl under my friends tent while he was trying to go to sleep....he informed him that he was in the wrong place and then he moved along. crazy.
There it is...
I'm losing my edge...
How does acid turn people into raccoons?
These stories are so amazing. I mean YOUR stories. I do not want to leave Coachella this year with one of these stories.
I wonder... does making your camp look awesome with lights and stuff tend to attract more cracked out human raccoons? Maybe this is a DUH, but I wonder if this was actually the case for any of you who dolled up your camps last year.
