04-28-2008, 01:03 PM
Friday was Outdoor theatre, but otherwise I was mostly Coach stage with plenty of Mojave.

04-28-2008, 04:58 PM
i only saw kraftwerk, portishead, stars, the cool kids, prince and part of waters at the coachella stage. definitely did not do it for me this year.

sahara and the gobi were where it was at for me.

04-28-2008, 05:00 PM
Sahara easy.

Friday was Gobi -> Mojave -> Sahara
Saturday was Mojave -> Boys Noize -> Main Stage
Sunday was all over the place but the last 5 hours was Sahara

04-28-2008, 05:01 PM
spent most of my time at the mainstage, recently broke my foot and didn't want to push it and make it worse since i refused to wear my aircast in that heat.

04-28-2008, 05:02 PM

i went in to check it out and left only a few times to the outdoor and main stage then went back to the sahara almost instantly.

I spent a lot of time in the do lab too
it was amazing

04-28-2008, 07:56 PM
usually spend my time between the sahara and mojave but this year i was at the main stage most of the time followed by the Mojave then the Sahara.

04-29-2008, 12:33 AM

04-29-2008, 10:40 AM

04-29-2008, 10:42 AM
I spent most of my time on drugs... Sahara and then main stage though for the shows...

04-30-2008, 09:35 AM
I was there preferentially for the rock acts... feels like I was mostly in the Mojave and at the main stage though. Really did book it around everwhere... my taste is as diverse as my feet are sore.

04-30-2008, 09:50 AM
I may make my own do lab this summer. I loved that misting water!

LOL! No kidding.

Night time between the Sahara and the Mojave tent was so fun and crazy. The Quad Cubatron is my new best friend.

Gobi was awesome this year, mojave was great too i think that all 3 tents i was in equally all weekend!!!

04-30-2008, 10:45 AM
I was in the shade of the sahara when there wasn't anything else I wanted to see

04-30-2008, 11:30 AM
mainly the tents. only caught the main headliners on main and 1 on outdoor the whole fest. sahara was where I would end up when nothing else I wanted to see was on so I voted sahara. seemed like i was there quite often.

05-01-2008, 10:18 AM
Sahara Tent and do Lab! The do Lab had some magical force that pulled my inside every time I walked near it. 10-15 minute dance sessions all weekend!

05-01-2008, 02:45 PM
I spent equal time at all stages (except didn't really go into the do lab area much). Saturday from 6pm to 12am belonged to the Coachella Stage, however.

05-01-2008, 09:25 PM
Easily the Sahara tent.

05-01-2008, 09:39 PM
mojave and its lil' sibling gobi.

05-01-2008, 11:44 PM

05-02-2008, 09:55 PM
Normally I spend most of my time in the Mojave, but this year a lot of the bands I wanted to see were on the Outdoor Stage. Four in a row on Friday, in fact.

The Sahara Tent has always been the best place to enjoy each day and then venture out from there for other sets.
