    I realized it's was amazingly hot and no amount of preparation will save you from making at least one fatal mistake.

    Just the opposite. This was my fifth Coachella, and while everything is still nice and dandy once you're in, the entrance nightmare has convinced me it's just not worth it anymore.

    Ticketmaster (the devil) fucked up, the ticketmaster agent at the entrance took my ticket and wouldn't give it back to me but had the security guard shoo me off (this is where I should've reported an armed robbery). She just assumed that I was using a previously used ticket and wouldn't listen to reasonI found out that the ticket had been reprinted and there was a new one for me at the Will Call... they wouldn't give it to me without the original ticket since it wasn't on hold for any name, just as a reprint.

    So Ticketbastard cost me an hour, a good show and a 100$... Of course the customer service dismissed it saying that since I didn't buy it directly from them, no refund - never buy tickets in groups kids.

    The festival itself is great and I've had great years, but with the huge fuckup that is the entry, the security pat down and the ticketmaster assholes, I'm going to spend the dough on better festivals.

    Goldenvoice, get the entry fixed and tell Ticketmaster to sort their shit out or find another ticket outlet.

    Talking Re: Friday changed my life

    It was my boyfriend and I first time too and I thought I was going to hate it with the hot weather and people being assholes ( i already live i hawaii, i like to travel to cooler climated places for vacation believe it or not. I already live in hot weather!)I experienced some assholish behavior, but I didn't let it ruin my good time! We heard of Coachella but already planned vacations elsewhere. We heard of the line up this year and and decided to go. We liked it so much that we plan to go every year. I already told the guy we rented a condo from that we plan to stay at his place next year. Yeah, I'm just bummed that we never tried Coachella sooner. It was the best trip I've had so far... I think my boyfriend and I are driving our friends nuts coz we keep talking about how great Coachella was.

    Friday was amazing... Faithless was the best performance of the festival... Comedians of Comedy, Noisettes and Tokyo Police Club were inspiring finds... Silversun Pickups and Tilly and the Wall kicked ass... Stephen Marley, Peaches, Jarvis Cocker lit up the Outdoor Stage... Faithless (again) was a religious experience... And I couldn't make it through Gogol Bordello... Maybe I need to pace better next year...

    Oh yeah, Placebo was nothing special, trust me... >>;
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    My 1st coachella back in 2001 changed my life...namely for the discovery of one particular band: Sigur Rós. I saw them on a off chance namely on a interview with Thom Yorke where he name checked the band. First US show and it was epic. After that I danced the night away to the Chemical Bros.
    Epic...epic...epic...

    Cool. It's good to hear about people having a good experience.

    This was my first coachella and it was absolutly the greatest time of my life. The heat didn't bother me at all which was surprising. Even camping me and my buddy slept till almost 10 every morning. The bands, the atmosphere, the food, the crowd, everything was amazing to me.

    I'm hoping I can go again. But I have a feeling I'm not going to have the money anymore now that I'm moving out and going to college. I'm gonna try very very hard though.

    Hot Chip sticks out the most. My favorite performance ever.

    How on earth could anyone sleep past 8am?! I didn't have the luxury of having a big tent to the east of me to block the morning sun...everyday started with breakfast and beer at the beer gardens, promptly by 7:30am.
