    '05 - 2
    '06 - 3
    '07 - solo
    '08 - 1
    '09 - 4

    Any more than one other person is a fucking pain in the ass.

    This year my friend was rolling on Saturday and wanted three of us to see EVERY show together, but had no interest in Band of Horses, Booker T., Mastodon, or Flying Lotus.

    No thanks.

    unfortunately I think that Outkast is lost along the way, I think Danger Mouse and Green Cee.Lo are doing what they should have done.

    It started with just my husband and I. Then my dipshit brother latched on, and then his wife. Now we have to deal with our doof of a friend, Jeffrey . . . along with 75,000+ other fucking people.

    It's been a long road. I hate people, but I love Coachella.

    Usually 4-5 people for me, seems like a nice tight number. We all have slightly different tastes in music, so nobody gets too sick of anybody else's company

    After going with a large group, and then going with only one other person/alone, I can definitely say that going with 1-2 people and then venturing off alone is the way to go.

    Unless you're one of those people that's more concerned about the partying at the campsites and shit.

    I usually attend with 2-3 others and share a campsite with them, but this will be my first year attending solo. I'll be meeting up with a couple of my neighbors that I camped next to last year and we'll be making a huge campsite W2. I'm genuinely excited to spend the weekend catching the sets I'm interested in versus hopping from stages seeing all the artists the group wanted to see.

    I camp with ~ 30+ people, have tons of other friends that also go (though not as many this year), spend a lot of time/sets with my boyfriend but also go and see things on my own when I want to and vice/versa. I can't imagine the horror of trying to *go with* aka *spend the whole festival with* a group of people. Running into friends at sets and then spending down time with them or being convinced to go check something else out and at the end of the night meeting back up with your camp group and sharing experiences of the day is the best part of Coachella.

    Damn I can't even find one person that has the time or money to attend Coachella any year

    I've gone every year solo but shit, some of you go all out.

    You all go W1 though, right? It'd be fun to get a bunch of boardies together to get a few campsites going. Past years I would go with my girlfriend and my brother and his girlfriend. We'd all usually go to a few sets together before tapering off into groups of 2, which works for me, but being the gentleman I am meant I would have to miss a few of my picks to go to the sets my girlfriend wanted.
    You're right though Cara, that's the excitement I'm looking forward to this year is running into neighbors at sets, meeting up at the end of the night sharing stories, etc.
    If anyone W2 wants to meet up for any sets or crack a beer in the campsites, feel free to shoot me a PM. Like I said, I'll be attending solo and will have plenty of time to meet some boardies/share some stories.

    Have attended with both large and small groups, I feel that a small group is the way to go. It's weird when you're in a group and you want to break off and go see an act on your own and some people get all put off by it, like you have to keep the group together. This year I'm going with one other person and I'm excited about that. I've always wanted to try going solo, but I must admit I'd feel a little bit awkward about camping by myself.

    From 2007-2013 I went with about 2-5 other people each year. The last three years I've gone solo and it's actually been way more fun that way.
