    it was rough, and i guess i only had 2 and a half days because i didn't get there on friday until 6 (missed of montreal...i cried a little.) but 3 days is way better than 2. fuck it, push the start time to 3 or 4 pm each day and make it a 4 day festival. avoid the sun.

    Three days, no doubt...
    By the third day, everyone develops a thick skin to the heat, or maybe that was just me.

    3 Days is the exact perfect amount.
    I used up every last drop of everything I had in me just to make it to the end.
    Loved every minute.

    I can't believe it's over too...but, 3 days was a bit much. I would do it again, but would be just as happy with 2 again.

    I would say 2 days with better headliners. I only liked Bjork as a headliner, and Saturday was almost completely useless for me.

    since a lot of people like to consider Coachella their spiritual refreshing, 3 days seems very appropriate. It felt more removed from the world than other times. Harder for sure, but give me tres.

    Going in, I thought my body would just give out after the second day. Instead, I had just as much energy. I could've done a fourth day, no prob. But certainly not camping.

    3 was fine with me. I was able to see a lto more things and not sacrifice as much as I have in previous years. I need to pace myself a little better though. I went balls to the wall saturday and Sunday I was hiding out for a long time.

    Goes without saying.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    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.

    I loved 3 days, but I don't think I'd go 4.

    I'm somewhat of a special case, but I definitely prefer 2. The one good thing about 3 is that it allows me to choose Saturday plus my favorite of either Friday or Sunday. But I don't like the feeling of having missed an entire day.

    Two fucking amazing days. Three is too tolling on the body, especially when camping.

    I liked the 3, but it was pretty stressful getting there on Friday. If you're traveling any kind of distance (say, flying in from the East coast) it takes massive planning and knowing stuff such as the rental car companies taking forever, the 10 getting horribly bogged down after 3pm, etc.

    w3rd! 2 days, 3 days or a Coachella week it's a good time. But yeah I guess if you're camping they'd need a lot more shade & water otherwise peeps would start dying.

    I would go with 3 days again next year. I was more exhausted this year for sure but Coachella seems to drain me in one way and energize me in another.

    Not a vet but three days seemed pretty good, although i totally ran myself ragged friday and was just dead saturday morning i paced myself better and was good through sunday.The heat played more into it though than anything else.

    3 days definately was awesome. On the way back home Monday morning I was complaining that I wished that there was another day of Coachella.
